I’m writing this post from a computer in the college library. There are hundreds of computers in here and thankfully the internet works great.
Today is my first day of college and I just went to my first class. I must admit, the college experience has already been pretty interesting. There are so many different people here and all of them are here for a different purpose. The people are very interesting and I hope I can get to know some of them better.
There are a lot of differences between high school and college. The teachers are much more laid back, they have designated smoking areas, the library is enormous, they have a cyber cafe, and there’s a lot less gum on the ground.
You know I’m not too excited about college but since I’m here I’m trying to enjoy it. I felt like 90% of high school was a waste but so far my college experience hasn’t been too bad. It’s definitely an improvement from what high school was like!
Update: Oh yeah, they have Firefox on these computers! My high school didn’t have that. Another cool difference is the guys throwing a frisbee in the middle of the school and the giant clock tower.
Sounds a pretty damn good first day! I’ve got just a week until I’m in on the college experiences…

Matt the college guy,
Sounds like you took in a lot on your first day 🙂 Just make sure to take at least one philosophy course as they are can be pretty darn interesting (at least it was for me)

Thanks for the advice Brad. I don’t have a philosophy class this semester but I really want to take one next semester.
