Being able to walk home from the party
No subways, no having your friends steal your aux cord, no expensive cab-shares that you need to split with four strangers and a dog. Ugh, do we sound nostalgic yet….
Strangers will give you grants and scholarships (like, their own money) to build robots, play with chemicals, or uncover hidden historical artifacts. Or they’ll just give you money because you show so much promise. Almost never again will this happen to you, so enjoy every last penny of it.
Not having to be anywhere until 11am
You either get to sleep in or watch daytime television. When it comes to watching Maury all morning long in a state of complete relaxation, you ARE the winner.
Having laundry in your building
You know the episode of Friends where Ross teaches Rachel how to do laundry in a public laundromat? A rude lady tries to steal Rachel’s machine and then Rachel turns all her whites pink because of one red item. Well… doing laundry as an adult is like THAT. But having it right in your dorm makes things a lot less stressful. Enjoy a few more years of not pulling a Rachel.
