Ever since elementary school I have dreamed of this day. One of the main reasons I wanted to go to college was that you whenever you needed to go to the bathroom you could just walk out. Not thinking about the school work and all the other steps I would have to go through first to get there. Heck, I still had middle school and high school to go through. It was a challenge but I made it.
Graduation, a breath of fresh air so you think. Graduating from high school is now your time to hustle if you have plans togo to college. That part time job now turns into a full time job so you can start saving money for yourself, cause your parents are not going to provide for you, you are now considereda full adult. Oh and don't think this money is going to be used for your wants it's now going to be toward your needs. Since I now live in a apartment style dorm, not only did I have to buy books I had to buy food, tolietries, towels, cooking supplies, etc. Basically my point is that you have to buy things that you would buy if you were own your own do not depend on the others you are going to live with.
Move in day. By this time you should have all your important belongings packed and ready to go. Move in usually begins 8 in the morning and the early bird gets the worm so be there as soon as you can and get enough rest the night before. It's very important that as soon as you move claim what you want but still be mindful of the others that have not moved in yet. If you are the type to be quiet and take whatever is left over you need to grow out of it and let it be known that you are a mature adult that demands as much respect as anyone human being.
Once your all moved in take the opportunity to get to know your roommates, you are about to live with these people for the next 9 months for the moment this is, your new family don't be a stranger. In the meantime try to get to know people in your dorm hall no rush though, it's nice to watch people and see if you should keep them as a associate or is it really someone you want to get to know. Also don't forget to look out for the sexies and call dibs lol :)
