Things You Wish You Knew Before College

Don’t know who wrote this, but this was handed to us back in college
(and I managed to find a copy of it on the web…uncredited)

This is true no matter which school you went to :
Before I came to college I wish I had known…..

That it didn’t matter how late I scheduled my first class,
I’d sleep through it anyway.
That I could change so much and barely realize it.
That you can love a lot of people in a lot of different ways.
That college kids throw airplanes too.
That if you wear polyester everyone will ask why you are so dressed up.
That every clock on campus shows a different time.
That if you were smart in high school, so what?
That I would go to a party the night before a final.
That I could sleep until 12:55 and still make my 1:00 class.
That my best friend is the worst roommate.
That you can know everything and fail a test.
That you can know nothing and ace a test.
That I would never watch the news and
I would be totally out of touch with the world happenings.
That Home is a great place to visit, But I wouldn’t want to live there.
That the more money your parents give you,
the less you have every time you check your account!!
That parties get old, and sometimes you just want to
kick back and watch a movie.
That most of my education would be obtained outside of class.
That friendship is more than getting drunk together,
but I met most of my friends through drinking.
That I would be one of those people that my parents warned me about.
That the free food server until 10 is gone at 9:50.
That you could be totally broke, but still have enough to go to a bar!
That I would go home every weekend my Freshman year.
That I would laugh at all the Freshman going home
every weekend my Senior year.
That Sunday is a figment of the world’s imagination.
That Psychology is really Biology.
That biology is really Chemistry, that Chemistry is really Physics
and that Physics is really Math.
That my parents would become so much smarter in the last few years.
That it’s possible to be alone even when you are surrounded by friends.
That friends are what makes this place worthwhile!
Don’t be dismayed at good-byes, A farewell is necessary before
we can meet again, and meeting again, after moments or a lifetime,
is certain for those who are friends.

there was a sidenote to the handout, which read:

Curtis’ Thot for the Day (yes, Thought was mispelled on the handout):
People are more violently opposed to fur than leather,
Because it’s a lot safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs.

this is what my notetaking looks like:
