  • That it didn't matter how late I scheduled my first class, I'd sleep right through it.

  • That I could change so much and barely realize it.

  • That you can love a lot of people in a lot of different ways.

  • That college kids throw airplanes too.

  • That if you wear polyester everyone will ask you why you're so dressed up.

  • That every clock on campus shows a different time.

  • That I would go to a party the night before a final.

  • That chem labs require more time than all my classes put together.

  • That you can know everything and fail a test. That you can know nothing and ace a test.

  • That I could get used to almost anything I found out about my roommate.

  • That home is a great place to visit.

  • That most of my education would be obtained outside of my classes.

  • That friendship is more than getting drunk together.

  • That I would be one of those people my parents warned me about.

  • That free food served until 10:00 is gone by 9:50.

  • That Sunday is a figment of the world's imagination.

  • That Psychology is really Biology,
    That Biology is really Chemistry,
    That Chemistry is really Physics,
    And Physics is really Math.

  • That my parents would become so much smarter in the last few years.

  • That it's possible to be alone even when you are surrounded by friends.

  • That friends are what makes this place worthwhile!!
