Don’t be angry at yourself when anxiety/depression flares up. It isn’t your fault and no one blames you and if they do they’re pieces of shit.
Don’t orbit around your perceived value so much. You’re not the sum total of what you produce.
Don’t let yourself wonder why people love you. That’s not how it works. There are not stark, individual reasons that a person can enumerate about why they love you. It’s the entire, unique combination of what and who you are.
A super girly and peppy blonde girl who wears bright pink dresses and skirts everyday is best friends with a quiet goth girl who of course sports all black clothing and big lace up boots. Someone jokes and yells to them “Hey look, a fairy and a vampire!” The blonde turns around and flashes a fanged grin and says “She’s human, actually.”
i couldn’t resist…
IM SO INTO THIS. YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH THIS IS MY JAM
yo i just wanna say that you're the kind of person i wanna be when i hit college like holy shit you're 1000% meme
yo heres some college advice
dont buy textbooks from the school, fucking dont even get one until you know its important to the class. if you really know you will use it amazon search it, and if possible, buy it together with a friend taking the class. if the book is only gonna be used for a few important things see if the library has it so you can just go read it a few times there instead of buying one or borrow one
if you ever get an email from your campus advertising some event, skim the letter and see if it mentions food. DONT YOU FUCKING PASS UP A CHANCE FOR FREE FOOD. YOU DONT EVEN NEED TO GO PARTICIPATE WITH WHATEVER THEYRE DOING. I WALK UP SO MANY TIMES TO THESE THIGNS, NAB A TON OF SODAS, AND GRAB AN ASS TON OF PIZZAS. FUCKING TAKE THE FREE STUFF IF ITS THERE.
join a club, there will be a big ol club fair thing at the beginning of the year, totally go to it (firstly because there wil be bowls of free candy and again, free shit, bring a pillow case im serious) but clubs are really neat and there are some things you may never get to do again or would really not be able to do at such a low price. i joined the pistol club and it was 30 dollars a semester an they give u free pizza (AGAIN. THE FREE STUFF) and i fucking loved it
if you need a job work on campus, theyre very flexible with schedules because most of their part time workers are students and every semester they reschedule to fit your new class schedule. also they keep your job for next year so you dont have to reapply (some may not but if they know youre coming back they keep you)
dont pay for an AC unit in your dorm room unless you got money to just toss around. seriously it will be really hot for the first week and last week of school and the rest is going to be normal.
wear condom. wear condom at all times. protect.
at college people are a lot more grown up then the usual school routine of kids and of course there are some crazy assholes, but most people are generally friendly and above all, they really dont give a shit what you look like. im serious i paint my face all the time and wear outrageous bullshit outfits and nobody says a thing or even looks. they just cool with it all. so be yourself
dont bother taking notes in class if the teacher posts the power points online. its better to pay attention fully in the class and write down all those long ass notes later
check out the intramural sports. theyre super fun and just full of kids that just wanna play the game and arent super great at it. getting a lil bit of exercise can keep a good variation in your schedule. (especially if you have a major like mine where i sit in front of a huge canvas for endless hours painting)
dont get a fucking fish it will die and you will become lost. get a cactus or marimbo or somethin nice like that if you want a dorm pet. (dont be my aunt that tried to raise a duck in her dorm)
and dont fucking take a huge shit in the dorm toilet and dump toilet paper al over it and not flush. seriosuly i dont know who does that but weekly you will find many of these. and DONT POOP IN THE HALLWAY. DONT DO IT. AND DONT WRITE ON THE BATHROOM WALLS WITH YOUR MENSTRUAL BLOOD. YES THESE THINGS HAPPENED TO OUR HALL. DONT BECOME THEM.
