3 Big Mistakes You Shouldn’t Make While Attending College

3 Big Mistakes You Shouldn’t Make While Attending College
  • Opening Intro -

    I remember trying to pass the time and the never ending days.

    I thought I could give you a few ideas of what "Not" to do while in college.

-------------------------------------

More advice from another college friend of mine:

Are you in currently in college? Do you sometimes feel like the days of classes are never going to end? I can relate. I remember trying to pass the time and the never ending days. I thought I could give you a few ideas of what “Not” to do while in college. This is just a few quite pointers that you may already know, but maybe you still need to hear them anyway.

1. Don’t Skip Class For Two Weeks

Don’t skip class for two weeks because you want to play in a billiard’s tournament. Yes, I did this. It turned out as bad as you are probably imaging. I thought because I was doing pretty good in my classes that I could forgo a couple weeks and maybe win a few dollars in a pool tournament. I not only lost in the pool tournament, but it literally took me the rest of the semester to catch up. Don’t do this!

2. Don’t Spend All Your Savings

I spend all my savings on eating “good” fast food. I had a meal plan at the cafeteria, but I didn’t really like the food so I blew through a big portion of my savings the first month of the semester eating at fast food restaurants. The money went fast and I ended up being stuck having to eat at the cafeteria the rest of the semester. Not my brightest idea. Try to at least save some money so you can mix it up. I would have liked to have had a little more freedom to eat at different places especially during finals.

3. Don’t Lose Your Focus

Dont get a girlfriend. This one may sound a little petty. But, I almost ended up dropping out of school because of a girl. I guess the correct way to say this is don’t lose your focus. That’s what I did. I was constantly answering her text messages and I was always trying to be supportive when she had a test. The problem with this was that I was letting my own life at school slip away. Luckily for me, she broke up with me before I went down too far. But, I realized after the break up that I couldn’t let something like that cause me to lose focus of my own life.

College is a great investment for your future and I’m sure you are going to make mistakes (like me). But, try to remember to enjoy these years, but also try to be mindful of your decisions.

I know that eating fast food or spending time with your girlfriend will seem like way more fun then studying and eating at the cafeteria, but its not worth sacrificing your long term goals. I think everything is OK in moderation.

And as far as the skipping two weeks for a billiards tournament. Definitely don’t do this. You will pay dearly with lots of hours of extra studying and having to chase down your instructors to help. Not fun at all.

If you like to share stories on Facebook, then I suggest you share this page with your friends. Why? Well, first it can create a platform (excuse) for you to share the stupid things you did while in college. Second, maybe your friend will tell you something stupid they did. Facebook is supposed to be fun, so share, and have some fun.
