I don't know about you, but my life as I know it is going to be changing drastically in the next 4 months.
I will be attending college, that means new people, new books, new classes, a new living area, and I have to learn how to do my own laundry.
Well since a lot of my readers are in the same boat as me I decided I would help you guys you and make a little check list for you. You know, the stuff that needs to be done before you go off on your own in this big, bad, world.
So, lets get to it.
Make sure that you have a graduation party or some sort figured out. Your loved ones will want the chance to see you and congratulate you on your accomplishment of actually getting through that prison we call high school. "Congratulations! You graduated from prison! I'm so proud of you!"
Get a summer job, preferably. Unfortunately, you have to get a job, unless your parents are paying everything for you. College is way too expensive to not start ahead of time. Get a job. Make bank. Be happy.
Enjoy the summer before college with your friends. This could be one of the few times you see them. If they are leaving to go far away, or even if they are going to a college in the same state, get together and have fun. Make sure you remember those times with your best friends.
Get your stuff. (Preferably make it cute too) If you are going away you are going to need some basic things like towels, a fridge, microwave, tv, sheets, pillows, a laptop, and all of the miscellaneous things you need.
Find a roommate. I don't know about you, but I really do not want to go into this thing completely blind. Sorry, but I do not want a future convicted felon to live with me. Sorry.
Set up housing. Duh.
Set up your class schedule. Again, duh.
Looook for books. There is a wonderful website where the books sell for CHEAP. Like, amazingly cheap. Just compare this price with others. Hit that up yo. (And some of there proceeds go to operations smile, I mean, c'mon.)
Move in. Ah!
Tell your parents you love them.
Enjoy the college years, learn, have fun, be successful.
If I forgot anything, please let me know down in the comments!
