College life is one heck of a time. It's a time to be alive, a time to try new things, a time to learn to budget your money and a time to make great memories with all the fresh faces you meet. Things can be rough sometimes, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. Whether you’re a college kid yourself or an upcoming freshman — the week you don’t budget your money correctly, end up with nine dollars in your bank account and have to resort to eating dining hall food all week will remind you to be thankful for all these great things that come with the college experience.

1. Care Packages

Whether it’s literally just an envelope with a gift card or a large box full of snacks — I’m happy with any surprise mail that means I don’t have to buy groceries for another week.

2. Free T-Shirts

Before college, people always told me I would leave my four years with more college shirts than I could count. And who the heck doesn’t love a free t-shirt? There are some days when I’m just too tired or lazy to wear anything else.

3. Discounts On Coffee

The library Starbucks has $2 Grande cold brews? Sign me up.

4. The “Friday Class Is Cancelled” Email

It doesn’t get much better than that.

5. After Class Naps

This goes along with number five, but I’m just as thankful.

6. The Simple Syllabus

There’s a lot to cover over the course of the semester, but the professor who explains everything without taking up nine pages is a blessing (or using cheesy memes they think are so clever.)

7. An Empty Library

I don’t know about anyone else, but an empty library at the beginning of the semester is the most relaxing environment ever (in just a mere ten weeks you won’t be able to find a seat.)

8. Dogs

I had a dog when I was growing, but I never felt like a dog person until college. There’s something so comforting about seeing a fluffy pup strolling down the street on your way to class.

9. The Classic College Crewneck

Wear it to class, wear it on a date; wear it anywhere. When you wear your crewneck, you are expressing your school spirit in the comfiest way possible.

10. Student Discounts

Saving on food, and stuff you shouldn’t be buying despite the fact you only have nine dollars in your bank account, is a score. PSA for College of Charleston Students: Harris Teeter on East Bay is giving 5% off with your VIC card until May 31st. (You must go to customer service and register/sync your VIC card with your student ID for the discount.)

How To Get Out Of A Traffic Ticket

Nobody Likes Being Pulled Over

5
views

Let's be honest, you've mostly been pulled over once, especially if you are reading this. And god knows you never want to go through that again. Seeing those unmistakable, flashing red-and-blue lights makes anyone tremble in fear. Here are 5 tips to get out of that pesky ticket.

1. Be Respectful

This sounds obvious, but you would be surprised by how many people have an attitude or argue with an officer. Make sure you have your license out immediately, clearly answer every question the officer asks, and do not move suspiciously whatsoever. Sometimes comical, light conversations help humanize you, making it increasingly difficult for some officers to give you a ticket.

2. Don't try to flirt or bribe your way out 

Despite it seeming like many police officers are corrupt, very few are. They will not fall for blatant attempts at flirting or bribes. This will only encourage them to give you a ticket as it questions their integrity; therefore, is insulting.

3. Play the sad card 

Hysterically crying and hyperventilating while yelling at yourself really shows an officer how shitty of a day you might be having. Sometimes officers will pity you. This a huge advantage as it makes an officer feel like a huge asshole in making your life worse.

4. Know the law

Few people know their actual rights. Call the prosecutor that is going to present the case against you to the judge to request a pretrial conference to negotiate. Additionally, you can prove that what you got a ticket for was legally justified in the context of the situation you were in. This helps your case as your now raising a legal point instead of implying the ticketing officer was wrong.

5. Never openly confess 

Confessing to an officer that you were speeding or doing anything illegally forces them to give you a ticket. Acknowledging your guilt makes it almost impossible to prove you were innocent. You can't take back words.

6. Play the mistake of fact card

The phase "Mistake of fact" refers to an error made due to circumstances beyond one's control. Tickets can easily be dismissed if it is deemed such. For example, you could argue that you did not stop at a stop sign because something like a fallen tree obliviated your view of it.

7. Don't pay the ticket right away 

Paying immediately shows voluntary admittance of guilt, eliminating any chance of you getting out of the ticket or possibly reduced. One usually has 90 days to plead guilty or innocent; and therefore, pay. You have plenty of time to figure out an alternative solution. Plus, often times people who attend court get their fine reduced.

Getting pulled over always feels like the end of the world. However, these tricks will at least help you get out of paying that pricey fine.
