Everything You Want to Know About the First YearOctober 28, 2015

It's the first year of your tertiary education. You're rather hesitant, afraid as well. No need to worry, as this may be the beginning of a memorable term. Any student will admit their mistakes, all of which are part of the learning process. You might be taken aback at what older students will say, but they want you to succeed. Experience is the best teacher.

Here are some things you need to know:

If you'll live in the dorm, then it's better to go there the soonest. The early bird gets the worm, right? There are many reasons for checking out the dormitory sooner than later. You'll get to pick the best room. If you must share it with another student, then you'll be the first to choose the better side. Don't let your soon-to-be roommate make the first move, as you might regret your sweet gesture. (If that person tends to be untidy, then expect trouble.) If your parents aren't keen on sending you to the university at the earliest time, then show your eagerness and excitement. It might surprise them.

What about passion? You have high expectations of yourself, only to struggle during the mid-year. Whatever happened to your enthusiasm? This might be the right time to meet older students. You're not looking for a good time, even if you don't want to admit it. They might be doing something different, and you can learn a few things from them. Furthermore, the members of the faculty may intimidate you. (They only want the best for you.) If you have doubts about it, then wait for the next assignment. You might miss the deadline, and it can be an eye opener.

I notice the love handles.Your housemate was the first to notice your weight. And you don't like being stared at. Fifteen pounds in three months would be natural, as you insist your high metabolic rate. (You like to walk.) There's no need to take it personally. If you become more observant, then you'll see other housemates dealing with weight gain. (And it might be beer.) As long as you're not binge eating, then you'll be fine.

Why do you have many distractions? If you have a problem turning down an invitation (to a party), then you must remind yourself about your coursework. You'll be quite disappointed, but there's a reason. Electives. (You read it right.) There are many options for English majors. It can be cinema. (If you're a film enthusiast, then this will be a walk in a park. This is also an opportunity to show off your knowledge.) It can be your favorite genre. (Why didn't you study female authors before?) As long as it won't affect your other courses, then you'll do well.
