One of my college requirements is that there is an active Greek life, mostly because I don't wanna get too sucked in to my major and the reputation that surrounds it. If I develop the genius label too early on, college will be just like high school and I'll have to deal with that all over again.


Lol dude there's no labels or cliques or whatever in college unless you're going to a tiny private one. If you get good grades, people will be pestering you for help, not making fun of you.

I'm not worrying about being made fun of or being called a nerd, I'm worrying about the whole being expected to do well on everything and then if you by some weird chance of god don't do that well on a test or a paper everyone loses their **** because they beat the genius kid. And the whole thing where people are constantly asking for help. And where they assume your life is perfect because your academics are gonna give you such a good future. Where they disregard the possibility of family problems or problems of really any sort.

It may sound like I'm an entitled brat by not being grateful for my academic abilities and such, but it just gets kind of obnoxious after a while.

On a different note, I literally just finished a couple college apps so there's that

Picked up a 3DS a few weeks back and so far I've gotten Ocarina of Time 3D (which is a fantastic port/remake), Super Mario 3D Land (fun mix of 3D and 2D Mario games), and Tales of the Abyss (still getting into this one).

I've also been replaying the Ace Attorney games as a refresher before Dual Destinies comes out.

Master at ignoring problems until they resolve themselves or amplify exponentially.

Frats aren't really a thing in Canada anyway.


Not really a thing here either. There's like different clubs and societies to join, but I didn't need dudebros to get pissed, I just crossed the road and went to the pub.

While we sing this song. We'll win the game.

Who all is planning on getting which new Pokemon game? I'm trying to decide which game I want. I think once I get my financial aid refunds on the 20th I'm going to preorder one.

Also, can I just say, college is ****ing awesome. Freshman year, secretary of the earth club, pledging to a sorority, playing pool and volleyball every single day, basically a movie night with one group of friends or the other every night, basically game night with my sorority every other night.. it's just ****ing amazing after being so unincluded throughout high school.

Edit;

Oh and by the way, now that I'm not under my parents roof I've gotten a skype and am being way more social. If you guys would like to add me, my skype is Alyalyoops13


yah college rules

Easy, lol.

From what I can tell, normal mode isn't actually any harder, it just gives you fewer resources to work with.

It's impressive either way, to be honest. It's addictive though isn't it? Super underrated game.
