Okay, so there’s only so many things I can talk about before this blog gets personal. REAL personal.
What I mean to say is, there’s only so much to be said about classes, commuting, quizzes, professors, campus etc. before I draw an empty cup and am forced to talk about what is truly on the mind of EVERY university student.
Yeah you heard me. You’re in a new place, with new people (all of whom are smart, cultured and nice), so don’t pretend that this thought hasn’t crossed your mind!
For the past 4 years, most of us have been cooped up in a comparatively tiny high schools, with about as many fish in the sea as adolescents with no acne. Speaking of acne, most of us went into high school being oily, awkward, socially inexperienced and entirely unappealing. And thus, when we get to university and have a chance to debut as intelligent, refined scholars; who isn’t thinking of impressing potential lady/man friends?
So, so far, I’ve experienced 3 types of boys in university:
- The guy who likes you but won’t make a move.
Nice, considerate, smart, happy-go-lucky. Endearingly awkward; like Joseph Gordon Levitt in 500 Days of Summer, or Dr. Reid from Criminal Minds. He’s told your friends he has a crush on you, yet he hasn’t told you personally… He was cute at first, but now it’s getting a little annoying, honestly.
- The guy who is entirely unaware that you exist.
Confident, intelligent, accomplished and devilishly handsome. His crooked smile jumps out at you from across the room. Very Edward Cullen (even though you don’t like twilight). You read into his every move and convince yourself that he’s secretly in love with you. But in reality, he’s only ever said hi twice. You hope he can’t tell how often you Facebook creep him…
- The guy who’s perfect!……………………. But he’s in a different program.
Cute, sweet, smart, funny and quirky. You met him during frosh and you two hit it off! He dropped a subtle compliment about your eyes or hair or something and you forgot your name. Unfortunately, as soon as school starts, you realize that you’re not taking Bio or Chem or any other classes with him for that matter … So the only time you see each other is on the path to North Building… once a week. Oh well…
These have been my personal experiences, and I understand that there are many different experiences. I’m curious to know how your experiences have been different. Leave a comment!
