1. Despite enjoying the nice weather, I have managed to develop several blisters on my feet from walking around campus.
2. I am completely dumbfounded each time I receive an email from my professors indicating an assignment has been added to ReggieNet. My inbox contains 100+ messages I am afraid to open as they may or may not reveal how utterly broke I actually am.
3. I forgot to change my weather app back to Normal and dressed for a chilly morning in Buenos Aires.
4. “I’m dropping out,” “I’m moving out” and/or “I want to die” have slipped from my mouth on several occasions.
5. I am having trouble sleeping through the night and getting up for my scheduled classes.
6. I have already resorted to Spark Notes (despite my major being English) simply because the thought of reading makes me even more sleepy than I already am.
7. I have nearly burnt my apartment to the ground twice.
8. I have gone to the library more times this week to print than my roommate Jessica did all of last year combined.
9. I forgot an umbrella.
10. I find myself at Target on the daily because I don’t understand how much food I can eat.
11. I have realized I can barely make microwavable popcorn let alone all the Pinterest meals I pinned over the summer for my roomies and I to cook together.
12. I have yawned at one or more parties since my arrival.
13. My door is full of Post-it note reminders I have yet to complete.
14. Since moving into an apartment without one, I have realized what a luxury a garbage disposal is.
15. Out of fear of failure and humiliation, I managed to drop a Gen-Ed I 100 percent need to graduate on day one because the teacher “seemed scary.”
16. My beer pong skills have suffered tremendously after a long summer of working and going to bed before midnight.
17. I had so little patience today to wait in line for food at Watterson that I faked a phone call, avoided eye contact and cut 10 people in line all for a mediocre burrito.
18. An “intervention” meeting has been added to my daily schedule as my roommates attempt to keep my emotional breakdowns to a minimum.
19. Rather than checking the bus route and avoiding further embarrassment, I got off at the wrong stop only to start walking in the same direction the bus was headed.
20. Despite living in Tri-Towers all of last year, I forgot where the tunnel was and attempted to cross Main Street.
