Hello, lovely people! As you can see, it has been MONTHS since my last blog update. I will not apologize, because everyone needs a break on occasion. I will, however, say a very hearty "I have missed you!!!!!" Many of you know (at least, those of you who follow me on Twitter) that I started college all the way back in August.
That was the craziest ride I've ever been on.
And while the first semester-and-a-half of college life has been getting in the way of my blogging, I feel like I've learned a great deal & wouldn't change the experience for the world. But what have I learned?? Well... Here's a list of a few things.
1.) Waking Up Early
2.) Food is LIFE
I cannot tell you how many late-night pantry raids I had with my roommates last semester & how much random food we consumed. Mac & Cheese was a general favorite, along with popcorn, ramen, ChowMein noodles, pizza rolls, and anything from Chef Boyardee. And when we scraped up enough loose change, I discovered how to work the $5 fill-up deals at all of my favorite fast-food places in town. (Yay for being thrifty, huh?) And ANYTIME you see an event offering free food (yes, it happens), you go. No ifs, ands, or buts...
3.) Caffeine is Actually Crack
When you have an exam coming up & the all-nighters you pulled are coming back to stab you in the shin & cripple you for the rest of your college career, a dear friend comes along and pushes you towards the finish line...
Once you are in college, everyone runs entirely on stress from deadlines, sarcasm, and caffeine. You can literally bribe students with the shadow of a promise that you will buy them something from Starbucks next week. If you throw in an energy drink in there somewhere, you will make some lifetime friends.
4.) Gossip Goes On
5.) Be Friendly with the Professors
"BUT HANNAH, HOW DO I HUMAN AROUND MY PROFESSORS?? THEY CONTROL MY GPA!!!!"
Hey, chill... They are people. They care. Be kind & thoughtful. Annndddddd just to put a little thought into your mind---- I have been known to bring chocolate to my Algebra teacher. Just saying.
Soooooo, my friends... There you go! That's five things I've learned in my first semester (and-a-half) of college life! Leave a comment down below with some of the things you've been learning!! Or share a story about school. Or say hi for the first time in a while. I'll accept any of them! :)
