When I was in high school, college felt like this mystical, far-off and lofty experience.
And to be fair, I didn’t exactly twiddle my thumbs while I was there. In retrospect it might just end up being the most densely-packed period of my entire life, full of all kinds of experiences, most of which I don’t even regret.
Even so, it definitely did not fulfill the sort of vision I had going into it, as these Twitter people understand.
10. Do the math
This is me but after college.
In highschool I woke up at 6 am, went to classes for 7 hours, went straight to track practice and ran 8 miles, then went home and did homework without taking a nap..in college I can't even take a shower without needing a nap

9. Assistant to the regional teacher
There will be plenty of time for binging when you’re older.
College students be failing intro classes but still be making time to rewatch The Office for the 3rd time…. mf you worried about the wrong office hours

8. Skip me
I will be older by then, I will be wiser.
I skip questions on test like some how I’m gonna be a different person when I come back to them.??

7. Getting to know you
Is this still true in the age of social media?
Is there even such a thing as a private life anymore?
half of college professors are like “you can know nothing about me except my name” and the other half are like “and that’s why my wife left me! anyway what’s up with y’all”

6. Dream on
Oh, honey. Sit down. Let’s chat.
The girl next to me is talking on the phone and says “my first day of classes as a freshman is over, isn’t it crazy that in just 4 years I’ll be working at my dream job” ….should I tell her?

5. The future kings of keg stands
One day they will all come back to haunt us.
College is so weird like the future leaders, teachers and doctors for our country are slamming beer cans against their heads and blacking out on Mondays

4. Lowered expectations
Me in HS: Yea I’m involved in 16 clubs, I have a 4.0, and I’m on 4 sports teams.
Me in College: So good news, I’m passing

3. The final lap
That bit is a special kind of cruelty.
going to school inbetween thanksgiving and christmas break feels like the last lap in mario kart where the music is all fast and gets really stressful

2. Can’t wait!
The best part of waking up, is probably not this.
To the high school seniors who can’t wait for college, I just want you to know I stirred my coffee with a pair of scissors this morning.

1. That dorm aesthetic
“Technically we could get kicked out for even drinking in here, but I think I’ll proudly display these trophies in my window anyway.”
to whoever needed to see this:
throw away your empty liquor bottles, they’re not decor

College is a wild time. To anyone heading there, I hope you have the time of your life.
