This might eventually be you unfortunately. So many things to buy: books, supplies, toilet paper, red bull, pizza rolls, dry shampoo, etc. Mom and Dad arent there to whip our their wallet anymore. Good thing is, people love broke college kids, and theres probably a coupon for it.

Youre about to meet so many new people. College is where you meet the friends you will have your whole life. If you dont know anyone going into college, the opportunities are endless. Get out there and introduce yourself, talk about your hobbies, ask them about theirs. Its as simple as being yourself. You wont make friends with people you like by being someone else. You may think, "Oh I wish I was as outgoing and friendly as that person, then I would have so many more friends." But you are going to have to stop comparing yourself to others before you can make some true, life-long lasting friendships.
