Commuting to college in the city every day, while being an adventure and helping you become more responsible, definitely has its challenges.
Waking up early
Oh you thought waking up at 6:30 was done once you left high school? Nah, fam. Twice a week (maybe three days if the Thursday counts as a Monday), I have to get up super early to make my first class.
Trying not to miss the bus or subway
Especially not the bus, because then you'll be late to class.
Feeling new appreciation for when you were a dormer
All you had to do was wake up, get ready, and walk fifteen minutes at most to class.
From either subway station closest to my school, you either have to climb a steep hill or a shit ton of stairs.
Having to take your ID out every time you enter a building
That's NYC colleges for you- but at least you know you're safe.
Balancing all the classes
I have to take 6 each semester if I want to graduate on time.
The vending machine food is expensive
3 dollars for a protein bar? #nothanks
Clubs haven't started yet
You want to make friends already!!!
All the notifications on your school's app from people posting on the newsfeed
And it's a lot because you're in the "new student" group, which comprises of new transfer students AND the whole freshman class
Not getting home until night because of evening classes
I'm so envious of people that just have to take the subway back home.
