College Advice: Please! Be Mindful…

In about 4 weeks, my freshman year will be over, and I am just excited for it to finish. These past last weeks, when I was sitting in one of the swing-swangs outside my dorm, I asked myself one simple thing; if there was something I could have known before becoming the ‘freshie’ what would it be?And in that moment I realized not even knowing ‘something’ for my ‘college experience’ would help me avoid a lot of the things I could have avoided. But, that is what college and adulthood brings to your life; situations in which you need to think with cold head and be mindful of the possible consequences it can bring.

However, some things I can tell you to take care or to pay attention are the following;

  1. If you feel tired, take a nap, go for a walk, drink a fruity juice to maintain your energy boost, and take some minutes for you.
  2. If you are going out, be mindful to be careful with how many drinks (if you will drink) you can take.
  3. Study, pay attention, do your assignments, and then chill.


But please, be mindful this are three advice concerning your college life. Now, let me tell you some personal advice you should probably follow:

  1. Please, do not hesitate to date, be on a relationship, kiss or bang someone. If you are a girl, be mindful guys talk (a lot, and sometimes bullshit) and whatever you do with them; they will talk about it. If you are a guy, please do not use girls to just bang; if you want to just have ‘that’, please let the girl what exactly you want.
  2. Please know something; what you do at a party, especially in small campuses, everyone will know.
  4. This last one goes if you ever end up in a ‘rusty’ situation with a person. TRY to solve it, people can leave life without knowing it will be their last time with you; so try to be in good terms with everyone.


Well, this is all I can tell you to take notice when you will be a college student. But, never forget to stay true to your beliefs because I can give you all the advice you want to do good in college, but it all depends in you and your beliefs. The way you develop your beliefs will be the way you will face situations not only in college but in real life.

It’s College Time

Orientation week is over and today we finally started our first classes! Since I always forget the places and my campus is so big, I’m using google maps inside the campus to get from hall to hall because dude, walking fast is serious! hahahaha just kidding! But really, you should get to memorize your campus in order to feel you are doing great with adaptation. Continue reading

College CheckList

“Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle”

-Christian D. Larson

One month closer to August the 15th, and my parents are feeling anxious looking forward to what I’d need, what I’m taking to and what I’ll use for the next first 6 months in Missouri. So I thought it would be a great idea to do a checklist; to see what I have, what I don’t have and what I’ll need.

This first part of the note is going to be about clothing

So there is this myth that college dorms are quite little so you actually will be sharing most of the space with your roommate, yeah… including the closet.

As a girl, I would like to take all of my cloth to college, but talking to other girls who have studied abroad, I realized that most of the time you will use the same pair of jeans or even the same hoodie. I mean is all up to you and the way you usually get dress, but the recommendation I got from them was not taking more than 20 pieces.

Remember to take summer and winter gears (if you are going to a changing weather state as I will)


Main Closet

◻️ Cute casual Black dress

(optional: another causal blouson apart from the black dress)

◻️ Formal dress (pouf or a wrap dress)  for a speech/interview

◻️ 4 t-shirts (you might like to bring 1 in black, 1 in white and the other 2 is up to your colors tastes)

◻️ 3 sweaters (1 could be patterned, the other 2 are up to you)

◻️2 long sleeve sweaters (1 of them could be a turtle neck if you want)

️◻️2 jeans (ripped or blue ones; just count the one you will use for orientation as 1 of them)

◻️1 formal pant for any speech/ interview

◻ a circle skirt (if you are a girl of skirts) it can be replaced by a short

◻️ a dropped waist skirt (if you are a girl of skirts) it can be replaced by a short or a jumpsuit

◻️ 2 coats

◻️ 2 leggins

Shoes and Accessories 

◼️ 1 pair of boots ( or 2 if you want)

◼️ 1 pair of sneakers

◼️ 2 pair of comfy shoes (try to take pairs looking good for a speech)

*heels are not what I’m into for college, maybe a pair of platforms or a pair of sandals

◼️ crocs or bath sandals (this ones are if you will share a community bathroom, let’s try to avoid germs)

◼️ Scarfs, beanies, earrings & collars (take one special and the other ones just normal)

◼️  Two Bags and a purse

◼️ Bathing suits (if you want) and sun glasses

Underwear and Night sleep cloth

🔳 31/30 panties

🔳 31/30 brassieres

🔳 5-7 night sleep cloth (try to take long pants and short pants and normal cotton sweaters; also remember to take proper night sleep clothing according to your state weathers)

So this is the first part of the checklist me and my parents were more worry about to get done. Part 2 will be about electronics, books, personal things, and more.

Hoping this be helpfull;
