What have I learned at college so far? Well, let’s be honest, a lot. What I am more concerned with is the practical life lessons.
Never wear the diamond ring from your great-grandma on your left hand to the career fair if you’re going with a guy friend.
People will most likely assume you are not only a couple but engaged to be married. Not only will they assume it, but some brave soul might use it as a conversation piece, and you will probably not have the heart to tell him you’re just friends but you are nonetheless very glad he works for a family friendly company. At least, that’s what Maes and I learned at the career fair.
Walmart’s “always low prices” have a theoretical limit.
One night, Jarrod and I went to Walmart. All I ended up buying was a little package of Big Red. How much did it cost me? 28 cents. The guy checking us out said, “Your total is… haha… uhh… twenty-eight cents. You must be one big spender.” I just laughed. He said, “I didn’t even know we had anything that cheap here. Guess you learn something new every day.” I thought it was pretty fantastic that a company that prides itself of low prices would have employees that snicker at the fact that someone left with a 28 cent purchase.
When a trashcan looks too gross to put trash in, it’s time for a new trashcan.
Sorry Walmart, but your scummy trashcans aren’t fit to touch. It’s sad when you see people walk over with trash, start to put it in, walk away, and throw the trash in their floorboards instead. I’m not expecting pristine, shining quality. But it would be nice if they were sorta close to the original color. I threw something in one without looking one night, and I wasn’t sure all the hand sanitizer in the world was going to make me feel any better. (This was for you, Jarrod. lol)
If you want your blog’s page stats to skyrocket, offend the largest fraternity on campus.
As you can see on my first post, many of my Beta neighbors weren’t very amused by my first post. Prior to the first Beta spotting my post, the most views on my blog was 80 in one day. The day of the discovery: 34 views. The next day: 160. The next day: 170. It’s not even dinner time yet today, and there are already 50 views. Fratties can network like nobody’s business. I’m impressed.
