Hi guys!

I bring this subject because I read a lot of articles of people in her freshmen year and how difficult it was the first day. So, I'm now in my sophomore year in college and I'm going to share with all of you a few things that help me get through that difficult first year.

Are you ready?

Diary And Reminders

This is the most important. Why? Simple. Because is the first year of college and it's when the important activities begin. Also, in the first day is important to have a diary in where you can write your hours of classes and the number of classrooms that helps you remember where you have to go next, in that way you avoid enter in the wrong classroom and take the wrong class.

Also, if you're part of an association or some group in the college take note of everything. You're head is going to try assimilate all the changes and all the new information that you're receiving and you can forget something important.

A Map Of The University

I know what you're going to say but I'm not being ridiculous. In my first day of college I get lost more than once. I even arrive late to the classroom because I didn't know where the classroom was. I didn't even found my car when I was on my way out.

But, some colleges have an app, or a website in where they have a map. My advice for you is to have it until you get more familiar with the whole college.

Instead of Notebooks, A Binder With A Lot Of Papers

In my first year I made the mistake to buy five different notebooks. It was a mistake because in the middle of the semester I had to buy again five different notebooks. So in total I spend fifty dollars buying notebooks in one semester.

The I realized that every sophomore in my class had a binder with tons of papers. One binder with divisions for every class. And it was actually the best advice that they give me. So in this year I didn't commit the same mistake.

It is a cheap option, and more fancy because you can personalized you're binder with everything you want.

Yes, you're going to need a lot of these. The most essential part for a great study session.

If you are one of the people in these world that don't drink coffee, believe me you're going to start drinking. The thing with college is that you need this special drink that helps you and gives you strenght to continue studying. So coffee is that friend. You're going to be married with coffee since you enter to college until the rest of your days.

Pendrive with Enough Capacity

I suggest a pendrive with at least 16GB so in that way you don't have to buy another the next semester.

A Relax Place At Home

Choose a quiet place at home and make it a more peaceful one. This is going to be very important because is the place that is going to help you memorize, and do works until late at night. So, choose wisely. A comfy one, with all the things you need.

So, I hope this helps you to survive the first year in college. Is a difficult one full of a lot of changes, but you're going to get through it. You can do it. Is difficult but not impossible. Everything is on the mind, if you have a positive attitude, you're life is going to be a lot easier.

Have a nice day :)
xoxo, T.
