Leaving home to go away to college can be a real eye-opener, depending on how you were raised. If you didn’t have much responsibility growing up, getting to class on time and doing all your work might seem next to impossible.
And that’s what these tweets are all about: learning things almost IMMEDIATELY in college that you don’t learn in high school.
Do any of these look familiar to you?
1. Ain’t that the truth.
STOP ENCOURAGING EVERYONE TO GO TO COLLEGE THERE IS NOT ENOUGH PARKING

2. They’re all morons!
Welcome to college. Where every single person is smarter than you except for the 3 people in your group project.

3. It’s crunch time!
going to school inbetween thanksgiving and christmas break feels like the last lap in mario kart where the music is all fast and gets really stressful

4. Why did I do that?
Y’all ever skip a class and then have the post skip class depression? Like damn I should’ve just went

6. She’s gone forever.
Yesterday a girl walked into class with an iced coffee and my prof told her she couldn’t have it so she just walked out and never came back and I can’t stop thinking about it

7. It’s a different ballgame.
In highschool I woke up at 6 am, went to classes for 7 hours, went straight to track practice and ran 8 miles, then went home and did homework without taking a nap..in college I can't even take a shower without needing a nap

8. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
some kid in the library is bragging loudly about how he got a 35 on the ACT well sir I signed up for the ACT but forgot I did and missed the test and we still ended up at the same school how does that make you feel

9. They’ll be in charge soon.
College is so weird like the future leaders, teachers and doctors for our country are slamming beer cans against their heads and blacking out on Mondays

10. Classic dorm decor.
to whoever needed to see this:
throw away your empty liquor bottles, they’re not decor

11. That’s not helping.
Multiple choice in high school:
a) not the answer
b) DEFINITELY THE ANSWER
c) not the answer
a) could be the answer
b) oh this one could be too
c) doubtful, but what if I’m wrong and it is the answer?
d) vague option that could also be right

12. The crying alarm.
i just saw a guy in the library cry for five or so minutes and then his phone alarm went off and he just? stopped crying? and went right on back to work

13. Two worlds colliding.
Remember when Disney channel would do cross over episodes between two different shows??
That’s how it feels when your college friends visit ur house and meet your home friends

14. Way to go!
My first college test I got a 68 and actually cried in the classroom.
Today I got a 52 on an exam and I took myself out for chicken tenders

15. Just keep it professional, okay?
half of college professors are like “you can know nothing about me except my name” and the other half are like “and that’s why my wife left me! anyway what’s up with y’all”
