Living in a dorm has taught me a couple of things about life:
One: Drugs, like kazoos, are both hard to use responsibly and a lot of fun when you are with the right people.
Two: Sometimes you have to put aside your sense of what’s right and wrong and accept people for who they are just for the sake of getting along with everyone, just for the sake of your sanity.
Three: You will always run out of money for things you actually need (like food and deodorant). This will always happen especially fast around midterms and your period. I suggest you don’t spend your last twenty bucks on watered-down drinks at bars in The Village. Instead, wisely invest your money uptown at LionsHead, where BudLight is two dollars on Wednesday nights after ten.
Four: You should probably tip the bartender that’s always there on Wednesday nights at LionsHead because he probably won’t like you and your friends.
Five: Staying out of drama that doesn’t involve you is always a good idea. Getting a front row seat to watch said drama unfold is also a good idea.
Six: Headphones are necessary. It’s acceptable, encouraged even, to own more than one pair.
Seven: Having people around you 24/7 is awesome and you’ll never have time to be bored, but trust me, alone time is sacred.
Eight: With that being said, you aren’t going to get any work done around your friends. No matter what you say. Ever.
Nine: You will meet a lot of people. You won’t like all of them and all of them won’t like you. That’s alright.You’ll eventually find people that will go on Tindr double dates with you.
