"Your just a freshman"

8 Things You Learn as a Freshman
Men's Health

1) You don't go to the dining hall at peak time.

I promise you, you won't find a seat ever. It will be the most awkward time of your life standing there with a plate full of food. The chance that someone knocks it over is so so high. The chance that you embarrass yourself in the process is so high, basically freshman social suicide. Or you may meet a great new friend cleaning up your meal.

2) Don’t wear your lanyard around your neck

It screams freshman. No one wants to stick out like a sore thumb. There are some things you just don’t want to do, and one of them is be a freshman. Lay low and don’t stick out.

3) Don’t be the one transported the first night

Everyone is going to find out. Everyone will be talking about it. Don’t let it be you. Control yourself, it’s just the first night.

4) Find your classes before they start

Walk around to the buildings, plan your fastest route if you know you are running from one class to another. You do not want to be the freshman running in 5 minutes late looking like you just ran a marathon into a class with a bunch of upperclassmen. You never know who is going to be in there.

5) Homework is real

Now I have never been the hardest worker but once you get to school, the workload is real. When you have free time and you are caught up on sleep, DO YOUR WORK. Don’t wait, you won’t have time. Even if you think you will have time you won’t.

6) Add/drop

If you are behind in the first two days, ABANDON SHIP. It won’t get better in the rest of the semester. You only have one week take charge ASAP.

7) Some people are insane

Now I have been blessed with one of my good friends as a roommate. What I have learned since being introduced from people all over the United States and parts of the world. Some people are just plain crazy. There are some people you just wouldn’t want to sleep in the same room with them. At all. Sleep with one eye open.

8) Look out for yourself

Although you may think some people have your back. They might not when it comes to when you need it. Make sure you can stand up for yourself when you need it

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day
Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation. It was the yearly benchmark announcing the end of the school year and the beginning of summer vacation. It meant I was one step closer to regattas, swim meets and tennis matches.
