    Collegge

    The day has come. I am packing my meaningful shit and bidding my final farewells. Tomorrow I will begin my journey across the country.
    I'm feeling a weird mix of things. First and foremost is an overwhelming readiness to get the fuck out of this town and finally begin a new chapter in my life. New friends, new place, new opportunities. But there is more than a twinge of trepidation. I've gone away before so I know what to expect as far as settling in, making friends, and being away from home, but I can't escape the fact that I've ended up back here once before. I know I have learned and matured as a result but the question I am grappling with is whether I have learned and matured enough to put things into practice and not do it again. It is all up to me and only time will tell.

    The trick is to kick someone's ass the first day, or become somebody's bitch. Then everything will be all right.

    Are you 21? Get a job at a bar. If not, get a job at a good vibe restaurant (apres restaurant would be the best) that serves liquor and caters to a good young crowd. ___Good luck. Hope to see you on the hill.

    Say "no" to selling drugs, but buy yourself a cool bowl

    Yeah, I know. What I missed is your point? Not sure where he is going to school, but I bet that it is not far from a hill. Dude likes to shred.

    I don't know about TR's point but there is no way I can stay in school without staying sober.

    For your first fight, I recommend you start here

    Looks like some of those animals may have been wounded previously, so you may have a leg up.

    Listen to what jimmy learned from 80s college movies.

    And: get a huge bong and start writing the first sfb / English dictionary.

    So...is this the advice thread?

    1.) Don't be the guy who peaks in college
    2.) Cs get degrees
    3.) Never be the house that hosts the party.

    Good luck!

    Congrats, SUF! Based on your contributions to the board, you're more mature and levelheaded than 99% of kids heading off to college; you'll do great. The mag collective is standing ready to provide advice (good and bad) as needed.

    He's off to get educated, isn't he? Good advice is good advice.

    Just be careful if you head thru Summit County. The sheriff there has a bit of a thing for a few people here.
