the Realities of college in Manhattan
1. Work Hard, Play Hard isn't just something we yell as we down a bottle of cheap vodka. Most of my friends (including myself) balance jobs, internships, school, extracurriculars and social lives. We work our zumba toned butts off, go out until who knows what time, and then wake up early only to do it again.
2. We hate tourists. You look like an idiot when you stop in the middle of Seventh Avenue to take a picture with your ipad. Buy a damn camera.
3. You become an expert at knowing what food places are open until when. This becomes both comforting and scary.
4. School is sometimes on the back burner. Yes you still have A's, but your honestly more focused on work or your internship.
5. We drink way too much coffee. Seriously, we need an intervention.
6. We have become spoiled with public transportation. I remember when I went to Boston and was angry at the distance I had to walk to a subway stop. Plus I had to wait outside, in the snow.
7. Our minds are a chaotic, scary place, tackling multiple projects at a time while binge watching netflix and eating fro-yo.
8. You will ride the subways at 3am and every single time forget how long it takes between trains. Every. Single. Time. You will also meet the weirdest, most interesting, creepiest people underground on these rides.
9. Why would I ever want to go to Times Square. Unless it was for Buffalo Wild Wings.
10. You will have the most incredible memories, meet the craziest people and figure out who you want to be and where you're going in the process.
