11 Things I Already Did My First Weekend Home From School

11 Things I Already Did My First Weekend Home From School

How many "I'm bored" texts can you send?

Coming home from college is weird. Simple as that. 9 months ago you crammed your whole life into a tiny room and all of a sudden you're home and you have space. And time. Ugh, so much time. In my attempts to unpack, I quickly realized that I have literally so much stuff, and in my boredom I realized that I have a long, long summer ahead. Here's 11 things I've somehow already managed to accomplish between Thursday night and Sunday.

1. Realized how much stuff I actually have

Not really sure how this is possible, but here we are.

2. Purged my closet

Subsequently, a lot of things were trashed.

3. Aimlessly drove around town

This is always something I craved at school, so naturally I just put on Harry Styles' new album and drove around.

4. Sent an "I'm bored" text to the same 3 people home right now

Somehow, not everyone is as boring as I am and has nothing to do but hang around. So I'm just visiting the very few people who do.

5. Napped

6. Watched the first season of a new TV show

I was intrigued by "Famous in Love" on Freeform, okay?

7. Caught up on an old TV show

Not sure why this show is still a thing but I totally still watch "Pretty Little Liars" with my sisters and I always watch it when I come home.

8. Decided what TV show I'm watching next

Riverdale I'm comin' for ya.

9. Rewatched my Snapchat memories from this semester

Literally my mood. So many mems!

10. Started redecorating my room

Basically I'm turning myself into the Property Brothers. Yes, both of them.

Basically, I'm turning myself into the Property Brothers. Yes, both of them.

11. Thought about going back to school

The college friends group chat is still thriving. So just get me to August already!

The 10 Commandments Of Not Being A Terrible College Roommate Moses Himself Can't Deny

College roommates can suck.

The worst roommate I ever had used to microwave shrimp in our dorm room.

Scratch that. The worst roommate I ever had used to wear clown makeup and play with her switchblade. Oh, and she was a Trump supporter. (I honestly don't know which is scarier.)

College roommates can suck. They are used to mom and dad cleaning up after them and generally have no idea how to live with someone who doesn't have unconditional love for them.

We ought to just scribe in golden tablets the 10 rules all college kids should follow in order to not be a nightmare to live with.

1. Thou shalt not steal thy roommate's food.

Do you want to lose a hand?

2. Thou shalt always knock before entering.

You never know what the hell they might be up to in there.

3. Thou shalt hide all thine alcohol and weed when thy parents are in town and never speak of it.

Dude. I may be an adult, but please don't tell my mom.

4. Thou shalt not leave dishes in the sink for longer than 24 hours.

Unfortunately, your dishes aren't going to clean themselves.

5. Thou shalt not have screaming sex.

JK, I can believe it because I, along with all of North America, heard you.

6. Thou shalt not think the world revolves around them.

Yeah... I am too busy taking care of myself to take care of you too.

7. Thou shalt always clean up after themselves.

I am not your mother.

8. Thou shalt never make smelly foods.

I'm still pissed about the shrimp-in-our-microwave thing.

9. Thou shalt not bone in thy roommate's room.

I cannot believe people actually do this. Bruh, get your own room.

10. Thou shalt always pay thy bills on time.

Don't be that one guy who is always making the house late on payments.

10 Questions Everyone Asks Me About Arizona State University

We've got quite a reputation and it's coming to bite us in the butt.

As one of largest public universities in the United States with a notoriety for being a party school, you are sure to draw up a reputation and get asked questions about what it is like to be a fellow Sun Devil. Here are some of the things I have been asked throughout my time here.

1. What are the parties like?

What do you mean? As a dry campus, I wouldn't know. Of course not! That's preposterous.

2. Greek life is wild, huh?

It's not like the movies.

3. So, your school is in the middle of a desert?

Technically, yes, but it's a developed city. It's not like we have roads, buildings, freeways, infrastructure, air conditioning? We're not living in underground huts with the snakes, people.

4. It's just really hot, right?

Yup, that's how it usually is. We're not burning alive or anything, though.

5. Does it even rain? Snow? Anything?

There are only two types of weather in our city - dry heat and monsoon season. The craziest things we experience are haboobs but that's about it.

6. Are there cacti, like, everywhere?

Yup, you can't even walk down the street without getting pricked. Just kidding!

7. Do you go to Mexico for spring break?

Not with my parents!

8. Is everybody a Republican?

Eh, depends on where you go.

9. Do you know a plug?

Chances are, you do, but you might not even know it. It might be Chad from Alpha Tau Phi or Lindy in your Chemistry lab - hell, it might even be your Community Assistant.

But, we are a smoke-free campus and drugs are kind of illegal, so do with that what you will.

10. U of A or ASU?

Let's not bring up that rivalry...

All in all, being an Arizona native with a flair for the Sun Devil lifestyle, I've found my home here on Tempe campus. Pitchforks up!
