The first few weeks of college have been some of the most exciting, confusing, and humbling ones yet. I feel that there is only one way to completely and accurately express my range of experiences — through anime GIFs.
1. Auditioning for performing arts groups
This gif from Love Live! pretty much sums up all of the dance and a cappella groups that always avidly encourage new performers to audition every year. And although auditions take up quite a bit of time, they're super fun to go to and a great opportunity to make new friends.
2. Staying up late to do readings and problem sets
Takamiya Naho from Orange is actually me falling asleep in the middle of readings. I stay up so late to finish homework that I wake up a little disoriented even when I get my full eight hours.
3. Waking up and running late to class
4. Eating too much food at the dining halls
5. And finally eat some food that reminds you of home
6. Awkward exercising to avoid the Freshman Fifteen
This gif from Dragon Ball is a good reflection of the weird exercises I'll do in my dorm's common room. Unfortunately, the freshman fifteen is still very very real.
