HC Top-10s: Things to Avoid in College

Watch out for this plastic monster.

Heads up on some things that will hinder your path to greatness in college. 

In this edition of the Top-10s, we’ve compiled a list of, well, 10 things you really ought to avoid. Regardless of your views on what makes you smarter, better, cooler, studlier, or richer than the average bear, these things will snatch away your focus and foil your efforts at pre-adulthood success.

Why do these things exist around us? Because we created them. They’re either the result of unrestrained greed, or just flaws in our society. We’re just here to warn you.
Take note, and avoid these things like the RA:
  1. Bad breath – Hey, you’re busy. You might not have time to brush in the morning, or the night before after munching out. But beware, this is something awful that folks won’t tell you about.
  2. Latenesses – Unless you want the professor to think you absolutely don’t care about what he/she says. 
  3. Cheating – Seems like a good idea, but it’ll catch up to ya. 
  4. Cheap Vodka – Those 4 shots never sink in until you’ve already drank 4 more. Then it’s far too late.
  5. Pledging – It’s a hoax, it’s a hoax, it’s really really fun sometimes and a source of good stories, but don’t fall head over heels into it.
  6. Wine Stains – There’s no better way to say, “I just don’t care” or “I’m hammered” or “I don’t own a mirror”. 
  7. A Bad Break-Up – Don’t be naive. College is for exploring, and if you’ve never had the bad break-up, it could be right around the corner waiting for you.
  8. Fiji Water – Okay this stuff actually tastes good, but it’s 4 bucks a bottle. Who came up with that?
  9. The Cops – They love getting you in trouble when you do extreme car hopping….what?
  10. MSG – In your Asian food, your sushi, your dreams. What is it that makes you crave MORE?
So next time you’re getting booze for the pregame, just think twice. Grab the Franzia instead of the plastic. Pick up some Orbit on the way out. Do your laundry. When you’re hungover, just fill up a Nalgene. Do your homework on time, and tell the “brothers” to go screw themselves for once. It’ll make you feel more like yourself. Avoiding the above should guide you on a slightly straighter path to success.
