Struggling to figure out a way in surviving college? Well, look no more! I have done some major people-watching (weird, I know) on my campus and here are just a few things I’ve noticed that people should just not do in college:
17. Sitting in the way back.
Seriously, what are you going to learn from sitting in the way back? You’re going to get distracted by so many things by sitting in the back–trust me. I mean, don’t you get tired of looking at Jerry’s butt crack all the time? Just sit up front. You won’t see any butt cracks sitting up front.
16. Eating by yourself.
Personally, I coul just never eat alone. I don’t know why, but it’s always better to eat with a group of friends. You are basically committing social suicide by eating alone. That’s all I have to say.
15. Being vulnerable to peer pressure when it comes to illegal activities.
Welcome to college. A place where you will 99.9989% get exposed to things you’ve never done before: one being that of involving illegal activies that could possibly be of the dangerous kind. Don’t think just because people you know do it that you should do it too. Be different and most importantly be strong.
Being a sorority girl has its perks, but then it does have a few downsides. I’m talking about the ridiculous, untrue things people ask or say to us. Not sure what I mean? Check this out:
17. “You must only care about looks during formal recruitment.”
Appearance matters but it doesn’t play a major factor into deciding who we want.
16. “I heard you guys hate the other sororities. Like you don’t talk to them.”
15. “Oh, so you’re in a sorority. This means you sleep around then.”
I mean, we sleep around with food. Is that what you meant?
14. “Which one’s this?” *starts doing some weird hand symbol that doesn’t even exist*
No. Like what are you even doing there.
I believe in true love. I do think you have one person you are meant to spent your life with. I want a pretty ring, and a pretty dress, and a party celebrating my love. But I do not want a wedding, and I will not get married.
I am not a religious person. Maybe there is a God, maybe there is a bunch of gods, maybe everything is a hilarious coincidence. I haven’t spent time thinking about it, and it doesn’t carry much weight in my life. To me, there is no point in getting a God I don’t really believe in involved in my love life. There is no point in standing in a church, listening to a man in a robe, and not really listening to his words, and them having no meaning to me. Why is that a norm? If people are allowed to believe whatever they want, then why do they have to be married?
I think the government is good. I like that they are there as a guiding hand. They are great for laws and protection and organization. But there is no point in letting the government getting involved in my love life. Sure there may be tax benefits and financial benefits, but my current career trajectory is pointing me to a place where those small savings aren’t completely necessary. Where I would be able to take care of myself with or without a mate. I don’t need a law binding contract to tell me that I have to love this person forever. I just should. And if I stop loving them forever, then I shouldn’t have to battle the law just to stop loving them.
A relationship between two people should be exactly that, between those two people. There shouldn’t be a pressure to get other people or powers involved in that relationship. And if you ever want to end that relationship, for any reason at all, you should be able to, without spending most of your money on lawyers and courts and paperwork. If you are meant to be together forever, you will be, no matter who else you get involved.
