Eight Reasons to be Stoked for College!
1. New Tech Swag
Chances are if you're going to college, a laptop is essential. It's your new BFF, guiding you through all those long, studiously worked on and well thought out essays. LOL, totally kidding. It's for sparknotes browsing, watching YouTube videos and googling every question on your homework assignment.
Great News Though. Your parents don’t ever have to know that. And we won’t tell them, after all, they’re the ones paying for it and they want to believe its for good reasons, right? Right.
I’m getting my MacBook at Gain Saver. If you’re looking to save hundreds of dollars, but you still want an apple laptop, go here. Go now.
2. A Cool New Set of Friends
New friends are definitely going to come from all places in college. It’s not like high school, where everybody knows everyone Thank sweet Jesus. Im definitely taking advantage of that and joining a ton of clubs and sports, and maybe even pledging to see what all the hype is like!
3. A Car To Drive
Unless your parents hate you or you’re moving in from out of state you’ll probably be driving some sweet wheels. Just kidding,you’re most likely driving your moms car she had in the 90’s. Regardless, you can get places. This will come extremely handy, when all your friends want to go to impromptu trips to concerts, pizza runs and weekend beach trips. Busses take you places, but when you’re in college, unless it’s a super tight knit college town, no car = no social life.
4. Two Words; College. Boys
Ahh, the college boy. He’s hot, tan, shirtless, wearing nothing but jeans, a backpack, a maltipoo and a smile. Reality Check. More than likely it’s a slightly pudgy, tea drinking, slouchy jean and hoodie with a hint of spilled relish smell, acne scarred sandal wearing chump who wears a thumb ring and carries his laptop like a newborn baby and often spends his Friday nights hitting up the local Starbucks to hit on girls with the excuse that he’s an engineer major. BUT, we all can dream, correct? And there are those rare moments when a guy is actually your fantasy guy! When this moment happens, drink it in. It doesn’t happen often around my college.
5. Working Out
With all the extra free time you’re getting in college, you owe your body some training, even if it’s just a run around the campus. Here’s the honest truth; I don’t work out to get skinny. I could care less about losing 10 pounds for freaking bikini season. It’s all about getting noticed. Working out is putting yourself out there to meet new friends and of course, new boys. So staying inside all day is cool and everything, and I’m sure you and your One Direction postered wall get along real nice, but tip; getting active= getting to know people. Getting to know people = more friends.
The inevitable parties of college. Something to be excited for as a change from high school (unless you went to the coolest high school ever). Now you’ll be seeing more themed parties, costume parties, parties for every occasion, and drinks for every person. Don’t be stupid and become the freshman slut though. And yes, you will be labeled as just that. Be smart about how you party.
7. Moving Away
Unless you’re commuting, like me (boo, hoo), you’re the luckiest bastard ever. So take advantage of that! Get to know your roommate! Plan out decorations. Go online shopping together and have fun designing everything! Moving away is awesome if you can do it. There’s so many activities you’ll know about going on, and so many new opportunities open!!
And last but not least, the freedom. You’re an adult now, you’re in college. You can apply to tons of jobs, buy lotto tickets, drive to the movies at 2 AM if you want, sleep all day… Just, a ton of stuff you couldn’t do if you lived with your parents and weren’t 18. I’m most looking forward to having a car and driving whenever I want to go somewhere!!!
