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
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
