18 Truths for College Freshmen

image

As Boston floods with freshman and returning college students I thought that I, a bitter, battle hardened senior, would share some pearls of wisdom with the class of 2019.

1. Friendships form and break extremely fast and unpredictably

2. Alcohol is awesome. Ambulance/drinking related medical bills are not. Neither is explaining them to your parents.

3. Don’t complain about the way that upperclassmen treat you. It’s the circle of life. Earn your stripes and shut up.

4. A lot more people are on drugs than you think, and I’m not talking about weed

5. Communicate with your professors. Don’t wait until it’s too late to ask for help.

6. Don’t actively try to impress/hang out with upperclassmen. They’re predisposed to hate you and you’ll most likely just end up embarrassing yourself.

7. There are worse things in the world to be than a hoe, but it’s vastly overrated in my opinion.

8. If you’re gonna be a hoe, be a safe hoe.

9. You will get fat if you don’t regulate your diet or exercise. Maybe not this year or the next, but before you know it that snap chat double chin will become permanent.

10. It’s very unlikely that the people that were your closest friends at the beginning of freshman year will be your closest friends at the beginning of senior year.

11. Be somewhat careful.

12. There are some things that being a freshman just isn’t an excuse for.

13. You’re at most a quarter as important as you think you are. No one cares.

14. We all screw up. Learn from your mistakes, but make peace with them.

15. Concentrate on making memories, not making a name for yourself.

16. Be patient.

17. Take care of yourself.

18. Cherish it. One second you’re a wide eyed freshman Tater Thot™ and the next you’re a bitchy, hysterical senior being dragged kicking and screaming into the world of student loans and actual responsibility.

  • Shake shack opened a location near my apartment so I’m just looking at my feet while I can still see them before I gain the inevitable 90 lbs
  • Tbt to the time I searched every floor of union station for a Cinnabon then ended up paying $9 for the most disgusting steak and cheese I’ve ever encountered
  • Is it really Veterans Day if you don’t post a granddaddy pic? It’s easy to get wrapped up in feel good quotes and talking points on Veterans Day — and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s a day we set aside to celebrate the men and women that decided to put service above self. But if we’re truly going to honor service and sacrifice, we don’t stop at what feels good or what’s easy to talk about — we address veteran homelessness, veteran suicide, post deployment reintegration, VA reform — and most importantly we resist unnecessary war that puts our troops in unnecessary danger. Thank you for coming to my ted talk.
  • My sandwich a lil ugly just like me 😛
  • You, an idiot and a plebe: divided by politics
Us, scholars of noble upbringing: divided by Nicki Minaj vs cardi b
  • No matter what happens tonight, I don’t have to listen to/watch political ads for another year and a half and that’s something to drink to
  • I feel like God makes sure to plop a good sunset in front of me at least once a week so I don’t go postal
  • Friday I had ice cream for breakfast and ate pizza for lunch and dinner because I’m a woman in crisis but im gonna keep telling myself carb addiction beats meth addiction until I need those wheel chair shopping carts at the grocery store 🤷🏾‍♀️
