Anyone have any advise for people going into college?
Is there anything you wish you knew before you got to college? I'm just wondering because I'm heading off to A&M next year...I doubt there's a whole lot but idk their might be a few things
As a recent AAS grad and someone who's getting ready to start a BA the one thing that you should avoid is the psychological factor. Basically, you are only as busy and the work is only as hard as you think it is. You wouldn't believe how much time we actually waste without realizing or how easy work is when we just sit down and do it. Another thing I would avoid is getting a full time job, you'll go insane I've seen it. Part time is much better. If there are any other specific questions you have let me know.
Don't be afraid to ask questions. Don't study so hard that you don't have any fun, but don't have so much fun that you don't study hard. Go to class, because some teachers give credit just for showing up.
Don't jump into a relationship as soon as you get there, and if you do, don't expect it to last. Anyone that does you wrong, don't fool with them, but forgive them nonetheless. Don't do anyone else wrong either.
Don't go partying and drinking and smoking, etc, just for the sake of getting the experience, especially if you're underage. There are plenty of ways to have fun without risking getting into trouble.
I would personally rather have a few good friends than a lot of so-so ones. Popularity is no longer important once you've left high school. In fact, the "popular" ones are usually the ones that everybody runs out on at the end of the day because they are too fake or mean or try too hard to control their environment and the people in it. Be real.
Last but not least, if you are Christian, find a ministry to get involved in. Once you get out of the habit of going to church, it is HARD to get back in, so get involved as soon as you start.

Does it strike anyone else as odd that all of the questions seem to largely be debates over god?No one is going to change anyone's mind. No Atheist is going to be swayed by the brilliance hidden in the Koran and suddenly believe, the reverse is just as unlikely. Let's discuss writing!...

I have been called illiterate and corrected on punctuation many times. I have been told to go to college. I have been given many book suggestions by the college educated who believe I am ignorant because they have a better title than me.Tell me why your degree is smarter than me. I don't like to...

I just got off a stretch of working 7 nights in a row and am having a very hard time switching back to day mode. It is now 11:30pm and I don't think I'll be tired until at least 3am. Last night (this morning?) I didn't fall asleep until 6am. I have to work at 8am tomorrow. This is so frustrating. I...

I have found myself to be a monster recently underneath all my belief in love and truth.I preach and teach of the God of love and goodness, and somehow I have recently become some sort of manner of mean. Not quite intentional as I would never want to hurt anyone in any way.But though picking, I was...
