Stop Trying To Defend Freshmen

I’m a junior in college. Although I never really went through the slutty freshman phase, I remember the stripper gear I’d sport every weekend. I remember hashtagging ridiculously and irresponsibly on insta. I remember being transported-

But let me clarify. I was completely fine, and if I had been left in peace that night, I know that I would have woken up feeling confused, refreshed and thirsty at about 6AM the next day. Considering that I tried to make a phone call with a water bottle in front of a cop that night, I really have no one to blame but myself, but I feel the need to make it known that no real procedure was done on me. I didn’t get hooked up to any machines or have my stomach pumped. I was drunk enough to try to sneak out of a hospital on my hands and knees, but not drunk enough for all of the fuss or that outrageous ambulance bill. But I digress.

I remember what it was like to come to college on the hunt for alcohol and male athletes. And I remember being put in my place and being made better for it.

I remember being turned away from a party or two by upperclassmen girl door guardians, aka some of the most hostile people on the most severe power trips ever. Do you know what I did? I took the L, recognized my place in life at the bottom of the food chain and went on with my night.

Why is it that the freshmen of today not only try to justify their rambunctious behavior, but feel that they are immune to the natural order of college? From overtly cutting lines in the dining hall to extensive displays of daddy issues at parties, it has become evident that the class of 2018 feels like they don’t need to earn their stripes like the rest of us did, but I can tell them that they are gravely mistaken.

Individually, freshmen are some of the best people I know, but as a class, they are abominable, and desperately need to figure out.

Have fun, be idiots, but don’t be upset when upperclassmen call a duck a duck and tell that duck to leave a party.

The same people wondering why they’re so miserable are the same ones trying to find something negative to say about a free vacation lol. Good things happen to those who are grateful
  • Not gonna lie, both of these pictures bother me a lot and I was tempted to edit and had a lowkey nervous breakdown looking at them and I’m not saying that for disingenuous sympathy “ur perf” comments but bc it’s real and I caught myself and even though we all are projecting curated versions of our lives on here to an extent we can at least make a choice to what degree we participate in fake toxic 🐃💩. Also while some people might not understand why these pictures are so upsetting to me, when you know what your body is capable of and how far below that standard you are I believe it’s completely normal and healthy to be disappointed in yourself and want to do better. But if you’re going to edit your body in pics it should be with diet and exercise not Facetune and filters. So hopefully posting bikini pics will suck less in the summer lol
