Oh, and dont put a fan facing out of the window, because then everyone will know that you smoke pot in the room

You've been to university and you're just about to get a degree, but you've never lived in a dorm before?...

Living in a dorm isn't too bad, actually...although I will say that one of the most important possessions I always had was my sleeping mask. I'm actually somewhat dependent on it to fall asleep even today.
Earplugs are helpful too, but they can be easy to lose.

Current piano projects: None atm.

Some of my performances: Feux D'artifice, by Claude Debussy, La Cathedrale Engloutie, by Debussy, Nocturne in B Major, Op. 62 no. 1, by Frederic Chopin, Ballade no. 1 in G Minor, by Chopin, Amberley Wild Brooks, by John Ireland, Prelude in D Minor, Op. 28 No. 24, by Chopin

Show me a person who describes anything as "overrated", and I'll show you a person who's run out of good ideas.

always lock your door when you arent physically in the room. one of the guys a few rooms down from me when to drop a duece one day, and when he came back like 5 minutes later, almost all of his cds were gone.

Leave your door open when you are there, and people may actually talk to you when they pass by. I was playing smash bros one day, and this chick that i never met before came in and ate my candy and was shooting the shit with me for a while. it was pretty rad.

EDIT: "spoofs" arent very effective, but they are definitely better than nothing. in addition to the one dryer sheet on the end of the tube, stuff it with three or four more. It will hold the air and cover up the smell a bit better.

Anything more than 60$ for an eighth and you're getting ripped off. Even then, that's on the upper boundaries.

EDIT2: if you can, change your meal plan to something more realistic to how often you eat. My school had a plan that was just 5 meals a week, one that was 12 meals, and one that was 3 times a day every day. I didnt ever change the plan from being the maximum, and i lost a shitload of money for it, since i only ate like 10 times a week at the most.

EDIT3: dont get suckered into doing salvia unless you would trust your group of friends with your life. I did it with my best friend in the world, and even then i was totally sketched out the whole trip.

Read up thoroughly on absolutely everything new that you put into your body.

Peace, right now i am in a Community College in my hometown living with my parents until i got my AA in Business Admin. So i did some reaserch and since i am going to be a Junior, i can stay in a "suite" with either 2-4 people with my own private bedroom. I also plan on getting a Meal plan becuase i find it is a good investment and I suck ass at cooking

and what in God's name is Salvia O.o

This brings back memories.

1 plastic 20 oz. Dr. Pepper bottle + holes poked on the bottom with a pen knife + 30-40 dryer sheets stuffed in = an expensive spoof. 3 or 4 won't do shit. Use a whole box.




yeah.

Stay away from adderall. A lot of students say that it helps them hella focus for studying, but the crash afterward is so terrible that it's not worth it at all. Plus you build up a tolerance to it wayy to fast.

I've heard really good things about piracetam but never got around to trying it myself.
