7 Things I Learned My Freshman Year Of College

Freshmen year has officially come to a close, and I still feel like I'm 12 years old. Not being the youngest on campus is going to be pretty dope, but that just means I'm that much closer to senior year which I want to avoid at an all time high. Hopefully, this summer will fly by and I'll be back at college with my favorite people and having the time of our lives. Freshmen year makes you realize a lot of things that you would never think about. Let's be real, a year ago none of us imagined our lives to be like what they are currently. Here are just a few of the many things I have learned from this wild year.

1. You don't need to be friends with people if you don't like them.

This isn't high school anymore where you have to stick with the same friend group. If you aren't about someone, you don't have to stay super close with them. There are thousands of people on campus- I'm sure you won't see them that often.

2. Your roommate will know you better than anyone, even your mom.

If you and your roommate are best friends, you guys will become the same person by the end of the year. I don't know how I am going to survive this summer without my roommate. Already slightly depressed thinking about it.

3. You might not stay close with people from home, and that's okay.

I'm not saying don't talk to people from home, not at all. However, in reality, you'll get closer and see that there are so many people in the world that you don't know and your lives are going to get busy and crazy and it's just hard to stay in touch. The sad truth.

4. You're not as weird as you think.

I really thought I was as weird as it could get, boy was I wrong. The second you step on campus you realize everyone is weird as hell, you're really not alone. It's pretty great actually.

5. Health services won't help you at all.

Might as well buy antibiotics off the streets at this point. You'll probably be sick forever while at school and there is really nothing you can do about it.

6. You don't realize how much you eat while you're drunk.

You might think you didn't eat at all the night before, think again silly. You probably consumed more than you could even think of. Drunk eating is the source of everyone's problems and is almost impossible to avoid.

7. You won't wear half of the clothes you bring to college.

You 100% overpacked clothes in the beginning of the year. Now, you wear the same 4 shirts over and over again. You don't even wear your clothes most of the time because you're borrowing from everyone else. It happens.

Freshmen year is full of ups and downs and will make you love your school way more than you thought you would.

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
