  • You're only in your twenties for 10 years, don't rush it. And try not to get pregnant either.
  • You most likely won't find your husband in college, so quit acting like every guy you meet in class is "the one".
  • No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, and show up... ESPECIALLY if there's free food.
  • The ways that you are imperfect allow people to connect to you and love you even more. I found my life best friends in college this way.
  • Even if you forget to turn in an assignment, turn it in a day late anyways and ask the teacher to at least "make sure you did it right" or for "SOME credit rather than none". Every time I did this, I received full credit even though it was late.

  • Go to as many tacky Christmas sweater parties as you can on the weekends before finals.
  • Buy a calendar where you can manage your time by the hour for the entire week. You'll most likely be more productive.
  • Make sure if you sign up for a hard course, you have an easier course to balance it. You'll be thankful come exam time.
  • Avoid bringing your car to school the first year of college, it will force you to get to know more people & get involved.
  • Get organized before school starts rather than after; because once it starts, it's all fast pace from there.
