Starting college-thoughts on how to make the best of it
Jasdev Posted: Thu Aug 5 20:18:51 2004 Post | Quote in Reply  
  I've been to college before, so I know the drill- people, lecturers, the social cliques, the chicks, the partying and all.

This time its uni, and Ive been out of touch for so long it feels all new. Your thought on making the best of it? Mistakes learned? Tips? Recommendations? Suggestions.

Money, food, bachelor pad, morning lectures, chicks, partying, friendships, loneliness- the whole shebang. Im kinda afraid actually, its a whole new unpredictable world out there

  going into my second year of honours philosophy in a month at the university of windsor.

1. throw conventional morals out the door, but keep good work habits. go for a casual fuck or all night drinking binge, try new things, but make sure your papers are written.

2. (and i stress this): if you're hungover, you will take poor lecture notes. bring a tape recorder or have someone else take your notes for you.

  I'm told that when you learn something, you remember it better when you're in the same condition as you were when you learned it(conditions such as tired or stoned).

  Yeah either method man or red man say that in How High. It must be the truth.

I heard it from the pothead...not a clique, just certain people that occasionally assemble as though they were a clique.

  Another thing to remember, most professors are good people who will actually give you the time of day if you go talk to them. If you do badly on a midterm _go_talk_to_them_ sometimes they will allow for the midterm not to count for as much if the final counts for more, that sort of stuff.

That's right. You never know when you'll have to construct a sling to kill animals for food when you have no money.

  I aint not ever goin to uni. my edumacashun is jest fine thank yous.

seriously though, jennemmer is right, professors will take note of people who go in and talk to them, and ask questions if they have any. they will remember those types of things come grade time.


and always, ALWAYS freeload as often as you can, unless your rich, then you dont need to.

get all the free beer and food and whatnot as you can. avoid paying for your own shit at all costs.


the end

  Make sure nobody makes you unhappy from the offset, if they start to, make sure you put a stop to it straight away.

Listen to what people have to say, everyones in the same boat as you and becoming someone who people can trust goes a long way. Also it gets you laid

  Also remember that it's a proven fact that there are some people that really do need to be killed. You will undoubtedly meet some of these folks at the uni. Don't feel guilty about it.

  It is time once again, to say hello
To fresh young minds eager to grow.
The freshman, it seems, have come at last
To hang out in dorms and sit on the grass.

To them I say, Welcome fresh fish
For your next year will be one not to miss.
Take it from me, the wise and the learned
Never a party goes skipped, never a credit un-earned.

You are in for a ride of unimaginable glee
Where you will learn what it is to truly be free.
No curfew, no rules, a fine situation
Unless you attend a Catholic institution.

So let me just say, from the depths of my heart
I hope you all have a very good start
Because as you grow, you will certainly find
That in freshman year, your best times are left behind.

To make the best of this year, you must listen true
To this brilliant advice I pass on to you.
Don’t question my wisdom, for I am surely right
Hell, I drank beer from a girl’s ass one night.

You must never skip class unless for good reason
Like throwing a Frisbee, drinking, or sleeping.
You must always call home; make sure that it’s done
Where do you think all your money comes from?

Avoid every chance to eat in the cafe
Don’t ask me why…just ask your ass.
Always wear sandals when washing your body and hair
Who knows what the kid before you was doing in there?

When given a nickname, never protest it
It’s an honor to be called “Slutski” or “He-Tit”
Write all of your papers the night before they’re due
You’ll save lots of time and energy too!

When dining at home, there are but three options
Easy Mac, Pop Tarts and, of course, Top Ramen
Piss off your roommate right from the get go
It’s fun to have a psycho sleeping below you.
Sex is ok, but make sure to be careful
The top bunk is shaky and the common room; lethal.

Get a fake ID, but do not be hasty
You don’t look Puerto Rican when you’re tall, thin and pasty.
Attend every party or soon you will see
That you’re the only kid on the hall with no STD

Drink every beer, take every hit
Wake up on the floor covered in shit.
Take every shot, down every drink
Smoke till your brain can no longer think
Smack every ass, gain every pound
Pull your drunk ass up off the ground
Wear every hoodie, cry every May
Cherish every moment you can remember the next day.

With that, my friends, it is time for me to go
I hope you have listened to all that I know
But let me just say, and let you just hear
Welcome, young minds, to your Freshman Year.
