COPY POSITIONING ….

more where this comes from…

Really coca cola? No, I am not on coke! I don’t do drugs…

I know I can’t be the only one who thinks this is the worst positioning of copy from a huge corporation…

Then again…it was on 95 North heading into NE Philly… So maybe there was some strategy behind this …

What I Know Now About the College Application Process…

What you should know about the college application process! I’ve been through this too many times to count over the past few years & this post shares some great tips!

I may add though: set all your personal social media to private. Admissions doesn’t need to know about the two wine coolers you chugged last weekend that got you “soooooooo wastedddddd.”

Just….don’t.

If you can, you will want to get it done as early as possible. But if you are…

So, after last weeks …”67 Things I Wish I Knew At 18…” Somebody decided submit a 11 things she wish she knew about college that she knows now….

i love college

1. Never live with a best friend freshmen year of college.

I will forever kick myself for being too stubborn to listen to everyone when they said not to live with your best friend freshman year. Teachers, parents, other friends, strangers… I should have listened. I know some people whose freshman year living situations worked out fine but my experience was terrible. I lost a good friend because of it and created a lot of awkward moments for myself for the rest of my freshman year. Advice: You don’t know someone till you live with them… no matter how many sleepovers you’ve had. You’ll be left getting drunk with your friends crying over the letter she left on your bed about how she was leaving you.

2. You’re first college boyfriend is just a stepping stone to bigger and better things.

 Do not get attached. I met my first boyfriend move in day and dated him until March. Freshman year is a time for you to experiment, put yourself out there. Figure out what you like and what you don’t. I went into college with this plan to meet the perfect guy the first day, date throughout college and then get married. NO. A thousand times NOOOO. Do not do this. This will lead to you trying to take a shit-ton of Advil to try to function and end up getting sent home from to class after he tells you he cheated on you and while he “loves” you he was never “in love” with you. But hell, it’s not like you had a heart anyway.

3. Never apologize for being yourself.  

If you ask any of my friends they will probably tell you that I’m one of the weirdest people they have ever met. In high school being myself only brought me unwanted attention so I tried to be more All-American. I shopped at the same stores as everyone else, I never truly spoke my mind, I was a clone. When I got to college I was excited to be who ever the fuck I wanted to be. Honestly I’m still working on totally being myself, but once I figured out that people would like me no matter what I started getting rid of all my old clothes and wearing what I wanted to wear. I took on more and more leadership roles and I spoke my mind. Everyday I take a chance that I might offend someone by being who I am. The truth is there is no better feeling than not wearing a bra.

4. Never cut your own bangs. 

This should be self-explanatory but… don’t do it. No matter how easy it seems. OR else.  However it will show you who your true friends are.

5. Do not buy a pet rabbit.

They are awesome… until they eat your computer charger, shit on your bed, shed on all your black clothing, and eat your homework, and live for 10 years. The excuse my rabbit ate my painting apparently does not go over well.

6. Never let yourself make up excuses as to why he isn’t there.

The biggest mistake I’ve repeatedly made when it comes to boys is that they don’t mean to be assholes. I hate that people think this way more so that I thought that way. A guy that truly wants to be with you will. He won’t leave you when you need him most to go hang out with other girls and he certainly won’t make you feel like you’re not worth his time. Cut those guys loose.

7. Do not go back to an ex.

There was a reason your relationship ended and no matter how many times you tell yourself you won’t catch any of those old feelings you will. It’s almost as if they are waiting for you to mess up so they can slap you in the face with some feelings pie.

8. Always look your best, or at least somewhat presentable.

 When you look good, you feel good. Besides you never know who many be watching.

9. Don’t just pin your life, make it happen.

 To many times I’ll look at something on pinterest and say, “Gee, doesn’t that look like fun?” And then never do anything about it. If you’re unhappy about something do something about it. I regret never looking into studying abroad and traveling with the school.

10. As much as you might despise a person never be mean to them.

You’re going to run into a time when you’re going to need that person to help you out with something and people remember the people who hate them.

11. Never say never. 

You never know where one crazy idea might lead. For me it was the opportunity to have over 100 subscribers on youtube, a freelance design company, and a decently visited blog. I never thought that anyone would care what I had to say and now after a year it’s become this cool unexplainable thing that I’m still trying to get a hold of.

I would know to never let someone right out of hair school bleach your hair.

I would know to not post pictures on facebook of you passed out drunk (future employers WILL see this!)

I would know to be yourself, and don’t impress people. they have to like you…for you.

I would know that you need to wear your retainer when you get your braces off…or you’ll wear them again.

I would know that what susie says about sally says more about susie than sally…seriously, susie is a gossip queen and she’ll end up telling everyone your secrets anyway!

I would know to never leave the house in your pajamas…you never know who you are going to run into!

I would know that putting together your first blog takes WAY longer than the thirty minutes.

 

What do you know now that you wish you knew then?
