Notes To Freshman Emily

~Don't worry about your weight
you'll loose it in about a year and a half, 
and even if you don't love your curves the way they should be loved! 


~Find healthy foods you like, not just junk

~ Don't be scared to try new things, that's what college is all about. 

~Audition for the musical, 
who cares if you "can't" sing? 
You love it, and that's all that matters. 

~Don't be afraid to meet new people, they won't bite. 

~Don't let people take advantage of you, be smart, 
if it feels like they are taking advantage, then they are.

~Go to class no matter the allure of skipping

~PLEASE join clubs on the first day, 
I know you're overwhelmed, 
I know you're scared, 
but trust me, it will make meeting people easier

~Don't hang out with the same people you knew before college all the time. 
I know that seems tempting because they are your best friends, 
but again, if you branch out you'll meet new people. 

~Talk during class, make friends with the people around you

~Sign up for the adventures offered through SSU, 
even though some of them sound lame, 
take advantage while you have the chance.

~Go to class, even on the super sunny days when no one else does

~Dress for your body, find clothes that make you feel like a million bucks

~Don't make new friends and spend the entire time 
scared they will wake up one day 
and realize you are pathetic and ditch you. 
Know you're worth it.

~Don't spend time with people who make you feel worse about yourself.

~Don't waist time on people who don't treat you the way you deserve to be treated

~Go to class no matter what fun thing is calling you.

~Utilize the library. 
I know it seems like it's no different than studying alone in your room, 
but something magical happens at the library, 
and you will get s*** done. 

~Don't get sic of the caff food, 
believe it or not there will be a day you'll miss it 
and will pay $9 to go in and get it again.

~Go to class every day, 
because how good will it feel when you can say
"I didn't miss a single class" 
(Something unheard of at SSU)

The most important thing I would tell my 18 year old,
freshman year self is,
to go to class, 
and gain self confidence. 
If I had done those things,
my entire year would have been different,
heck, my entire college experience would be.

  1. You are so right about skipping class! It seems awesome at the time, but once I have to listen to a 2 hour maths lecture online I totally regret it!
