1. It goes a little something like this…
Me waiting on this essay to type itself


2. No, no…it’s like this:
College is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane

3. Then it hits you:
College is wild bc u really be chillin for the first 3 weeks like “alright not too bad i think i got this” and then suddenly u have 200 pages of reading, 3 quizzes, and 2 exams within 48 hours of each other

4. That you have skills:
writing an essay on a book you didn’t read takes talent

5. I mean a lot of skills:
When you’ve procrastinated so much now it’s physically impossible complete your work on time and now you’re just sad


6. You realize that hard work beats talent:
when you know you’re not made for university, but you try your best to fit in


7. And you attempt to make an effort, but it’s hard
Me at the start of the week: “I’m gonna make a real effort to go to all of my lectures”
The next day:


8. But you learn from your mistakes:
Don’t cite Wikipedia, cite the sources from Wikipedia

Me: omg wow I’m drowning in homework and responsibility. I have so much to do in so little time.
Also me:


11. Mainly that this shit aint easy, OK:
Mum: “how’s college?”


12. You succumb to peer pressure:
When your friend asks if you want skip the lecture to go and do nothing


13. And sometimes fall down:
When you’re confused as hell in class and you want to ask the teacher a question but you don’t even know what you don’t even know


14. You’re not always alone, though:
If the girl with 4 highlighters & 78 colored pens says she’s screwed for a test then you probably are too

15. And there are some surprises:
Emailing professors be like
Me: *polite greeting, multiple paragraphs, perfect grammar*
Professor: “sure” -sent from my iPhone

16. And a lot of obstacles:
Professors be like
A) only A
B) only B
C) both A & B
D) neither A or B
E) a sprinkle of A with a dash of B
F) 3/4 cup A & 6 fluid oz B

17. But at the end of the day, remember you do have some power:
when it’s almost class evaluation season & your professor wrongs you
