I’m about to graduate college. I would try to wake up early before class and do your PE before showering. You don’t want PE to get in the way of any studying or any work you might have to do or cause you any unwanted stress.
I’ve been in college for, like, 5 years now and I’ve never gotten laid. People think college is like a fuck fest where everyone is getting wasted, doing drugs, and banging each other. Let me tell you something. It is that way, but really only for the dropouts and failures. You can’t party like that and be a successful student or get much out your courses at the same time. I went out looking for parties, trying to get laid. I got shit faced, did a bunch of drugs and ended up dropping out my freshman year, and I never even managed to get laid in the process. I really regret that period in my life. It was not only the worst experience I’ve ever had, I was depressed and doing drugs, but it’s what has held me back the most in life and has costed me the most time. It was a waste of time. I made shitty friends and it was absolutely terrible. The friends I made there winded up in prison shortly after I dropped out.
I went back to college at 22 with a slightly clearer head. All of my old friends I met are either still in prison or are addicted to drugs. College can be a terrible place if you wind up meeting the wrong people like I did. Be very careful of the friends you choose. About half of the people you meet your freshman year will drop out. Don’t be like them. Focus on your studies and future career path. College is mostly work, dude. You can work and play, sometimes, but it is mostly work. So, be prepared to work when you get there. Don’t worry so much about making a bunch of friends, getting laid or being popular. Like I said, half of the people you meet will end up dropping out, anyway. So, it doesn’t really matter if you impress them or not. Work hard and excel in your courses, and you will begin to meet others who do the same, and opportunities will open up for you, such as places to work, scholarships, awards, etc. Start working on your CV now. Get involved with your campus. You can try volunteer work, tutoring, peer educating, etc after your first year.
You’ll do great if you try. College is not that hard if you are willing to work.
Also, dorm life sucks. It just does. It resembles a jail in some respects. I didn’t have any money or anything in my room besides a blanket and pillow, so it was more like that for me than others. Just saying, it can be hell for you if things don’t quite work out for you.
