From High School To College: You Know You’re Busy When…

Transitioning from high school to college can be an amazing experience, but one is bound to eventually stumble because of how different college is. A person can go from going to bed at 10 p.m to not knowing what sleep is.

These are 10 hilarious things that have happened to either me or one of my friends because of how overwhelmed we have been:

1. Are You Serious?
oops_are_you_seriousOne day, I walked into Newk’s and ordered an entire meal. I got so upset when I reached for my Ole Miss Express card, and they told me that they did not accept Express. I replied with, “But, I just called” and pointed to the name of the restaurant on the website. The name of the restaurant was McAlister’s. I was so ashamed that I walked into the wrong restaurant.

2. It’s Raining. It’s Pouring.
img_2244_1It was the second day of school and not a cloud in the sky. I am a freshman; so, the last thing on my mind was grabbing my umbrella. You can only imagine what happened next. It stormed, and I got drenched. I didn’t even try to run. I just walked and soaked up all of the water.

3. Molly the Mazda Can’t Start This Way.
30-kim-gif-w529-h352One of my most recent mishaps was when I was getting ready to travel home for Labor Day weekend. That week was crucial. I remember already having a 1,000 word essay due, and I was lost beyond measures in psychology. With it being a pretty tough week, I was ready to get home to see my dogs and get a home-cooked meal. After my math quiz, I rushed to the car with bags as big as me in my hand, threw them in the back seat, and I was ready to roll. There was only one problem, I tried to put my charger piece in my car ignition switch instead of my keys. How in the world was I going to get home? Hope that my phone charger would give my car enough juice to start up? Poor Molly the Mazda was not having it.

4. I’m Locked Out. You Can’t Help Me Now.
locked_out_of_dormI told myself that this would never happen to me, but it did. I had a long day and I had just got into my cozy bed when my friend asked me to come open the hall door. I walked out to let him in the hall not knowing that I left my key in my room. I was locked out of my room with a t-shirt that swallowed me and green skull shorts on. Let’s not forget I had on white socks with no shoes. It took me 15 minutes to get in touch with my roommate, and then I had to track her down in the library. I also borrowed a random girl’s shoes.

5. Be Prepared My Child.
_bring_your_stuff_to_classThe number one rule that all professors have is to come to class prepared. I felt awful when I arrived to my choir class (on time) and opened my book bag to get out my binder for class and it wasn’t there. I made sure that I did not make eye contact with the instructor that day.

6. I Can Not Deal.
nap_It was late at night, and I was coming from work (the world’s best Pizza Hut server). In order to get into my dorm I have to scan in. This night, I forgot that. I tried to open my door twice, getting frustrated not realizing that I failed to scan my card. I looked around the hall to make sure no one saw me throw a fit and I quietly shook my head in disbelief.

7. I Keep On Fallin’

She was coming from class and I am sure she was texting because she was walking down the stairs of Lamar Hall, fell, and poured juice on herself. How funny, but embarrassing at the same time?

8. We All Fall Down
falling_Ole Miss, despite how beautiful the campus is, has horrible sidewalks. These sidewalks are made for tripping people. I trip at least once a day. One day, my trip was so bad that I broke a pair of my favorite flip flops. Sooner or later, I won’t be able to catch myself and I will become a living GIF.

9. Am I There Yet?

He has so many hazard stories that I could write a book, but here’s a pretty hilarious one: Ole Miss has this one parking lot called “the silver lot” that takes (it feels like) 10 hours to walk to. A person’s best bet is to catch a bus there, but which bus? Jeremy rode on numerous buses for an hour because he had no idea where any of the stops were.

10. Rebel Run
falling_at_rebel_runLast but not least, the annual Freshman Rebel Run. This is when the freshman class of the school year gets to run across the field on the first home football game. The only job that we have is not to fall… But, I did. My arms were tied between two of my friends arms, our adrenaline is pumping, and we have prayed that we do not fall. The time has come and we are all running. Not even half way through the run, I trip, I was slowly dragged until I was let go because I lost my shoe. In the mix of the red shirts and my peers running full speed, another girl bumps her head on mine. After it all happened, all I could do is laugh. That memory is definitely one for the books.

Class of 2021, beware. These things will happen to you. The struggle is real. Hotty Toddy!
