Things I’ve been lucky enough, and unfortunate enough, to learn the last two months:
Gas is way too expensive.
Meet someone new? Check their ring finger first.
If you make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, you will probably eat them all.
Costco is also too expensive.
Dishes pile up really fast.
If you leave your homemade granola in a ziploc bag sitting by your dryer sheets, the homemade granola tastes like dryer sheets.
The taste of dryer sheets burns your mouth.
Skype is a necessary commodity.
You do actually miss your family.
People think its funny to doorbell ditch cooked peas on your doorstep.
People also think it’s funny to fill the stairwell with crumpled up newspaper the day before it rains, making it stink the entire weekend.
Falling asleep in class is embarrassing.
Singles wards are awkward.
Toilets are never as nice as they were back home, they will probably break somehow.
When your toilet does break, and its 2:45 in the morning you have to call campus police.
Jillian Michaels and Sean T are lifesavers.
Missing the bus sucks.
Going on a date with a returned missionary isn’t as scary as it seems. (Don’t worry Dad I’m not getting married.)
Taking a class at 8 in the morning is a bad idea.
You can put peanut butter in any jamba juice.
But probably the most important of all of these, is that it's really hard to make yourself go to class sometimes. GO ANYWAY.
