list of things

1. Before I came to the university I wish I had known

  • that it didn't matter how late my first lecture was, I'd still feel sleepy through it.
  • that I could change so much and barely realize it.
  • that I can love a lot of people in a lot of different ways.
  • that every clock on campus shows a different time.
  • that I would study everything yet fail a test.
  • that I also would know nothing yet ace a test.
  • that most of my education obtained outside lectures.
  • that no matter how 'cool' anybody was in school, no one here cares.
  • that if you got good results in school, so what? It doesn't matter here.
  • that friendship is more than giggling and laughing together, but that's still fun!
  • that Sunday is an illusion for the world's imagination.
  • that Friday is the most welcomed day in a week.
  • that Biology is actually Chemistry, and Chemistry is actually Physics, and Physics is actually Math.
  • that parents would become smarter than the last few years.
  • that it is possible to feel alone even I am surrounded by a bunch of friends.
