This is how fun junior year is.

This is how fun junior year is.

Everyone forgets about junior year. Freshman year is for #COLLEGE, sophomore year is for slumping, and senior year is for #COLLEGE round two. But what about junior year? Bwog’s got you covered. Here’s everything you need to get done before¬†ohmyGodI’maseniorhow’dthathappenI’msoOLD.

Embrace the Ennui

  • Change your sophomore “no fucks given” attitude to the more positively phrased but really exact same “que sera sera” attitude
  • Accomplish nothing of purpose/value because it’s junior year

Get “Serious” Academically

  • Take Art Hum/Music Hum, impress self with capacity for spewing meaningless bullshit
  • Realize how much more fun your major is once you can take electives and not just Core requirements
  • Add a concentration, drop said concentration, add another concentration
  • Take your first seminar; alternately, no longer feel weird about being the youngest person in your seminar
  • Master doing precisely the minimum amount of work to attain your desired GPA

Study Abroad…Or Not

  • Forget about study abroad deadlines; fail to study abroad
  • Study abroad; oversaturate social media with photographic evidence
  • Lie to your friends on campus about how many foreign guys you hooked up with on study abroad
  • Passive aggressively comment on friends’ Eiffel Tower/Big Ben/Gaudi prof pics

Eat Well

  • Drop the meal plan but spend all your money on beer/Chipotle/halal
  • Stop experimenting with Westside salads and stick to what’s fucking good
  • Learn how to cook at least three solid meals: pasta, pasta, and pasta

Get a Social Life

  • Begin spending vast majority of weekend nights drinking wine with three of your friends
  • Take a shot at 1020 for your/every one of your friends’ 21st birthdays
  • Throw a kegger or five in your sweet new (st)Ruggles digs
  • Have basically no sex and really bad sex when you do have it
  • Corollary: hook up with an underclassman, feel vaguely weird about it
