The 16 things I learned after my freshman year of college

After having been home for a couple weeks now and finally having some time to reflect on my freshman year at NYU I decided to make a blog post about some of the lessons/revelations/realizations I had throughout the year. It was simultaneously amazing, exhausting, stressful, and just plain fun. I had one of a kind experiences and met the best people. So without further adieu, here are the sixteen things I learned my freshman year of college.

My closet at school will never be as big as Carrie’s, heck my first apartment’s closet will not even be this big.

Naps are sacred.

You will get annoyed more easily by all of the youths (aka high schoolers and below).

Brunch is the best meal. I don’t care if it’s basic but New Yorkers seriously know how to do Brunch right.

Going to school in New York, you feel the pressure to look your best always but sometimes for that 8 a.m. Uggs and leggings are as good as its going to get.

Also, you will go to various events just for the free food #brokecollegekidprobs.

Oh yeah, don’t expect freshman guys to take you on fabulous New York dates.

You will never be so exhausted but still functional.

However, sometimes you will just lose it.

And this may happen in public but thankfully it is socially acceptable to cry in public in New York.

Don’t worry though, you’re not alone because your friends become your family.

You will be closer than ever with the friends you make in college because they’ve seen you at your worst and are friends with you anyways.

You are also on a whole new level of understanding with them and feel 100% comfortable calling each other out.

You will also feel 100% comfortable calling out your roommate on things.

This is huge: you learn that you DO NOT need to be friends with everyone, its just not possible.

Finally, remember how in high school everything seemed like the end-all be-all and one mistake will be the reason for your life’s destruction?

Yeah college makes you realize that precisely five seconds later, it’s not the end of the world and you move on.
