Food for Thought-College

Hey there. I had a bunch of thoughts running through my head last night about my first quarter of college and some advice I wish I had given myself. Of course, I am still a Freshmen and have a lot to learn still. I would like to sit down and properly write a thorough post on this topic, but frankly, as I am both lazy and busy during this holiday break, I will have to resort to the classic bullet point system. Hope you guys don't hate me too much. :)

  • Wear flip flops in the showers. (I did this, but I felt the need to include this crucial piece of advice.)
  • College is not a popularity contest. No one really cares about what everyone else is doing.
  • Don't get the largest meal plan that your school offers. You will get sick of it and some days just want to order pizza or eat Top Ramen.
  • Always have your mini fridge stocked with the essentials: water filter/pitcher, Diet Coke/Sprite and milk. 
  • Get a mattress pad. Splurge for the best one, if possible.
  • Get slippers. it.
  • Don't forget that you came here for your education.
  • Pack a rain jacket or umbrella. No matter what area you go to college in.
  • Remember, you don't have to have your major picked out your first year.
  • If a science major makes fun of you, remember that more than half of college students change their majors during their four years.
  • Bring a robe.
  • Find your people. (Meaning those friends that will bring out the best side of you.)
  • Be spirited. Even if you are the most cynical person out there, go to events, games and things like that. You will regret it.
  • Call your loved ones back home. Stay in touch with your high school friends, if you liked them.
  • Eat fruit and vegetables at least once a week, please.
  • Get Airborne or Emergen-C and use it when your roommate is sick.
  • Have fun.
That's all, for now.


  1. This post makes me really excited to go to college (you know, in 2 years). It sounds like you have so much freedom and independence!!

    1. I'm glad it made you excited because you should be! It's crazy how you go from living at home, in most cases, under your parents' rules to basically complete independence. It's a lot of fun. :)
