Any regrets? Any of those, "I wish I'd known this!" moments? For freshman this fall haha.

    I wish I had known what I wanted to pursue, otherwise I wouldn't have wasted as much time as I did.

    That and enroll in classes as early as possible before everyone else snags them like vultures.

    I wish I'd been less afraid of difficult courses (took an intro anthro class instead of an upper division humanities class, because I was scared by the number of upperclassmen in it), because the difficult classes have been the most rewarding ones.

    I wish I had taken second semester courses more seriously since my first semester was so simple that I didn't expect the sudden change in course load.

    I also wish I hadn't been so terrified of office hours for the first few months.

    Also wish I hadn't been so incredibly set in my major(s). Took on a double-major of something I've loved for years with something that I had only had one good class in during high school, and it's taken me a year to drop that awful second major to take on a minor that I love with all my heart.

    And I wish I had figured out the school/city bus system faster.

    Not to buy my books at the campus bookstore. That's my biggest regret. ugh I got ripped off so badly.

    Putting things off till the last minute doesn't work like it did in high school.

    Memorization is King; reading is the folly of high-IQ fools.
