1. Going shopping for more socks and underwear so you don’t have to do laundry.
With all the quarters you use to actually do your wash, you might as well opt for brand new undergarments instead.
2. Celebrating Halloween for four nights instead of just one.
What’s wrong with having an excuse to dress up, party, and have fun?
3. Getting drunk on a Wednesday night.
It’s the day before Thursday, so it practically counts as the weekend.
4. Waiting until the last day to add or drop your classes.
If it’s technically allowed, then what’s the big deal?
5. Going to your friend’s room in the middle of the night to ask for a condom.
At some point, you’ll probably end up reciprocating the favor.
6. The number of people you have (or haven’t) slept with.
As long as you’re practicing safe sex, it doesn’t matter how many people you’ve been with. There’s also nothing wrong with waiting — your sexcapades aren’t for anyone else to judge.
7. Binge-watching Netflix when you should really be studying.
Who said Frank Underwood can’t teach you about American politics?
8. Ordering pizza at 2 a.m.
Sometimes Easy Mac just doesn’t cut it.
9. Switching your major to something less practical but more appealing.
Because it’s OK to study English Literature if that’s what really gets your juices flowing.
10. Going to a specific bar because you saw on Facebook that your crush is there.
A little premeditated flirting never hurt anyone.
11. Taking an extra semester (or more) to graduate.
It’s way more common than high school guidance counselors let on.
12. Not showing up to class when you know your professor won’t be there.
If they won’t be there, then why should you?
13. Transferring from one university to another.
Don’t think about it like you’re giving up — you’re starting over.
14. Showing up to class in your pajamas.
Because if you pulled two all-nighters in a row and still have the strength to go to class, you deserve to be comfortable.
15. Refusing to leave your bed, responsibilities be damned.
Take advantage of these days, my friends.
16. Sounding pretentious and philosophical about life.
People will hate you for it post-grad, but your peers might actually appreciate you for it while you’re still on campus.
17. Going back for seconds at the dining hall (and sneaking even more food back to your room).
Screw the “freshman 15” — unlimited food at a fixed price should be treated with love and affection.
18. Learning how to be a good DJ, even if your neighbors complain about the noise.
It’s a good party skill to have even after you leave school.
19. Perfecting the art of funneling and every other drinking game.
If you’re going to be doing it anyway, you might as well be great at it.
20. Spending more time laughing with friends than updating your résumé.
When it’s all said and done, these are the memories you’ll really want to have.
21. Taking an embarrassing on-campus job.
How else are you going to earn money to pay for your bar tab?
22. Daydreaming about traveling the world instead of paying attention in class.
Sometimes daydreams turn into reality if you think about it long and hard enough.
