I can't spell. You would think that my spelling capabilities would've gotten better in college. And that my vocabulary has improved. But really if it weren't for spell check I don't know what I would do. Thanks, Apple, for helping me get through college by not making me have to learn to spell. Also, I called my roommate "unresponsible" and just so you know, that isn't a word.
Iguanas don't change colors. Or at least thats what they say. I'm not convinced. But yes, during these two years that I've been in college, this is one of the most valuable things I've learned- if that tells you anything.
Coffee is absolutely necessary. I've become addicted. Mostly to Starbucks. Last year I got a $100 gift card to bring to college with me. Guess how long it lasted? Two months. #Yolo
Partying gets old fast. First semester was all about going out and having fun. But at my school, unless you're 21 (which I'm not) its all about the frat parties. Which is fun at first, but honestly I don't get how girls can do it every weekend all four years. One semester was enough for me. I'd much rather stay home and watch Mean Girls (happy 10th anniversary Mean Girls).
Driving on campus is not fun. People walking around campus are idiots and don't watch where they're going. This + tons of foot and bike traffic = sorry, but I'm going to hit you.
Your friends will change. The friends you had in high school will leave, the friends you thought would always be there aren't, but you also meet some of the best friends you'll ever have.
There are some crazy people out there. AKA Brother Dean.
ALWAYS AVOID EYE CONTACT. When you're walking around campus and there are people trying to stop you to preach about religion or hand you a flyer- avoid eye contact at all costs. Never stop and talk to them because you'll be stuck in a 30+ minute conversation.
Straight A's were definitely a high school thing. I got straight A's in high school. In college I've gotten everything from an A to a D, and I'm totally okay with it. No one expects you to have a 4.0 here.
Well, obviously I've learned tons of valuable things in college, huh? What did you learn in college?
