So, playing ping pong, air hockey, going to football games and just about everything else is more fun than studying. Like sleep. Got it. However, ya gotta do it. A good way that helped me a lot was to set aside a certain amount of time and then stick to it. Much easier said than done but it is achievable.
Some of the best times I had were on the weekends, of course. The aforementioned football games and going to my buddies parents house which was only an hours drive. Bonfires, chicks and um, drinks. You know like pop and iced tea. Just really relaxing and nice. The hot girls helped things too, you know who you are!
Sooner than we wanted though it was back to reality and school. I really tried to like every aspect of my time there. Like we had been told a billion times, ” You only go to college once “. Yeah, I guess.
Of course I loved the bands that came through and performed like: 30 Seconds to Mars, Foo Fighters, Muse and the like. I remember most of the concerts I think… Anyway, there was some cool people that came through campus.
The professors were usually ok too. I had a couple who were actually engaging and answered questions from us students. Others just wanted a paycheck and the accolades. Oh well.
I roomed in the dorms like most of my friends and that was a great experience for me. I met some really cool people and some not so awesome people who couldn’t clean if their lives depended on it. Kinda acted like idiots come to think of it. Anyway, as long as an xbox or playstation was available it was pretty chill. I got to be pretty decent at a couple games when I should have probably studied more.
The food was decent in most of the cafeterias around campus as long as you knew when and where to go. Not all were created equal. Make sure to have some spending money for those times you want something else to eat. Word gets around as to which local joints have great food. I found a bunch of them around campus.
I went to a school that got cold in the fall and winter months, so make sure you have sweatshirts and junk for it. I bought a ton of them from our university store. Student discounts anyone? Speaking of which, you show that student I.D. almost anywhere around the city and you can save money. Especially movie theaters. I spent more than I should have there believe me.
I had bought a decent laptop before school and it basically saved my life. Don’t skimp on a good, reliable laptop. Or cell phone. Too many girls wanted my number to not have great service and stuff. The rest is just details that you are gonna have to figure out I guess. I know I did.
Make cool friends as soon as you can because well, it’s fun to hang out and do stuff.
