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.

9. Assistant to the regional teacher

There will be plenty of time for binging when you’re older.


8. Skip me

I will be older by then, I will be wiser.

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?

6. Dream on

Oh, honey. Sit down. Let’s chat.

5. The future kings of keg stands

One day they will all come back to haunt us.


4. Lowered expectations

It’s true.

3. The final lap

That bit is a special kind of cruelty.

2. Can’t wait!

The best part of waking up, is probably not this.


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.”

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