10 Thoughts You Have About Parking During Syllabus Week

10 Thoughts You Have About Parking During Syllabus Week

Hide your kids, hide your wife, they're snatching all the parking this year.

Well, it's official. School is back in session and I'm sure the majority of us are only looking forward to the fact that we still have one week left to enjoy: Syllabus week. Most of us can look forward to this week, as you'll go over the syllabus the entire time. Others, like myself, begin material the very first day *round of applause for science majors*.

Not only is syllabus week, but so is the beginning of trying to find parking. I hope we can all agree that the first week of parking on campus is absolute madness. You will see people the first week of school, and never see them again until the final. These people are the ones hogging all the parking spots.

Let's reminisce on the week we just experienced and the thoughts we had while trying to find parking.

1. Why do professors need so many spaces?

2. I should've just caught the bus.

3. I could've walked and actually got here on time.

4. You did not just cut me off for this parking spot?!

5. This is hunger games, parking edition!

6. Why don't we all carpool like we used to in middle school?

7. I'm fine with getting a ticket.

8. Already 10 minutes late, they probably un-enrolled me by now.

9. Contemplates dropping out.

10. Well, maybe next semester.

Hopefully, you didn't have to wait hours to find parking or even leave hours in advance to get a spot. Maybe next semester the odds will work in our favor, but surely not today.

5 Things I Learned My Freshman Year Of College

Almost everyone’s favorite year of college.

Almost everyone’s favorite year of college. You meet tons of new people, your workload isn’t as heavy, you’re eating tons of food, and you’re happy… for now.

1. Not all the people you meet are going to be your best friend forever

Suddenly, you have a great group of friends that you study and go out with. You think these people are going to be at your wedding. But unfortunately, not all friendships last a lifetime. Like everyone says, as you get older, you realize who your true friends are.

2. School is way more important than partying

I wish I realized how important academics were my freshman year. I should have woke up for that 9 am class, instead of thinking I could catch up on my own and still get an A. I should’ve picked studying over a hang out I could attend any other day.

3. You will get that hangover

I was blessed with not waking up to a hangover every weekend. I thought I was invincible and I could drink all day/night long with no regrets. I ended up waking up to a hangover and throwing up in a bathroom at brunch.

4. Coffee is your life

Somewhere between all those late nights and early mornings, you fell in love.

5. It’s time to grow up

I realized that I was on my own in college and it was up to me to get my life together. I can't rely on my parents to do everything for me. I had to learn how to do things on my own and make good decisions.
