So you’ve been prepping for college since the past few weeks and your enthusiasm is beginning to overflow. A little more than slightly.
And as you enter the IN gate…
Dark clouds shroud the sky, dense fog hovers around you, menacing gates creek open.
Welcome to Freshman year. A year you will never forget.
It begins with O week.
And a consequent series of rather unfortunate events.
Your hostel: Expectation
Your hostel: Reality
Your roommate: Expectation
Your roommate: Reality
First day of classes: Expectation
First day of classes: Reality
And after days of ordering out, you realize that there’s something called a student budget.
You also develop a perpetual case of insomnia, partially because of sitting at the khokha all night long. #guiltypleasures
And so, during finals week, you overdose on coffee and spend consecutive nights in the library. Yes. You shall do that.
You go for your exams like a boss.
And when you view your grades on Zambeel.
But hey, college isn’t THAT horrific.
You’re going to make some amazing memories.
…And embarrassing mistakes.
You might discover some hidden talents.
You’ll learn to enjoy the little pleasures that life has to offer. Such as good food, once in a blue moon.
And you’ll get to travel! LUMS is famous for its trips up North.
But best of all, you will find your family away from home.
