The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) longs for a return to simpler, more ignorant times: when men were manly, women were womanly and you could tell what was between a person’s legs by whether they were wearing a skirt or trousers. Because in the olden days, that was incredibly important knowledge. You had to know what reproductive organ a person had so you knew how to treat them, how much to pay them, whether you were attracted to them, which bathroom they should use and whether or not to fire them.
Florida State University has a circus. UF has our Student Government with better clowns.
You belong in college. And there’s nothing wrong with you if you don’t feel that way. I’ve been in a similar place too, like I’d somehow duped the admissions committee into letting me past the gate. It can be so easy to fall into that spiral of self-doubt, that feeling of being out-of-place among “better qualified” classmates. I get where that comes from, and if you feel that way, I can’t emphasize enough how wrong you are.
When campaigning on campus, you get the chance to talk to a lot of people. Many students are excited to get involved, to learn more and to vote. Others, not so much. Some laugh at you and actively delight in their indifference.
Somehow, it’s already my sixth first day of school here at UF, my second first day of law school, and yet I still have no idea what I’m supposed to write about. My editor kindly suggested I write something using my experience from these four years of undergraduate and one year of law school to help new UF undergraduate students be successful. As I have zero experience being a “successful” undergraduate student, (no seriously, I was the worst, just ask my stressed-out parents how excited they were when they got my degree in the mail), I thought I’d share a few things that got me over the finish line during the many times I thought I wasn’t going to graduate.
I can’t deny that I love a good deal. When most people see a sale they immediately perk up, and probably spend a little more than they should. This, unfortunately, is especially true in retail shopping and many people don’t realize how affected they are by the advertising they see-especially online.

Move out day is here. The cardboard boxes clutter your room in a claustrophobic way.
