Some things I learned in college

Nadine's post about the things she learned in college got me feeling all sorts of I decided to share some things that I learned in my years at the University of Northern Iowa.

If you eat entire boxes of Kraft macaroni and cheese and whole bags of cheesy rice for will gain weight

It's perfectly ok to kiss lots of boys. As long as you don't sleep with all of them

On the same subject...flat out telling guys that you're not going to have sex with them is a great way to weed out the guys that just want some ass (read: 99% of them)

It's ok to spend your college years being carefree...once you graduate you have way more responsibilities and worries

College is probably where you're going to meet your lifelong friends, at least it's where I met mine

Go on at least one wild Spring break. South Padre, Cancun, Panama City Beach...everyone should experience it once

Call your parents. They want to know what you're up to
It's ok if you don't know what you want to do with your life. You probably still won't know when you're 25 (or maybe that's just me)
Skipping class every once in awhile is not a big long as you don't make it a habit
It's always better to go to house parties...not have them. Your house will be trashed and people will steal and/or break your things
As fun as going out to parties and bars's also fun and important to stay in and watch chick flicks with your room mates in your underwear
Also staying in alone binge watching seasons of Friends is good for the soul
If you work at a place that serves food, take home as many boxes of leftovers as you can and give them to your male neighbors. They will appreciate it!
If you do your hair and make-up and actually put effort into your outfit to go to're the weird one
Finding the building and classroom your class is in before the first day is actually very helpful
You'll meet so many new people...what you gut tells you about them is usually right
