As school is starting up for many people this week, many students are filled with hopes and dreams that they have for this semester. While some expectations we have are pretty realistic, others are not so much. We eventually  realize this as we are crying into textbooks the day before finals. So here are nine expectations we have for this school year, and the sad, harsh realities that occur instead.

Expectation 1. “I am going to wake up early and do my makeup and actually make an effort this year. Who knows maybe there will be a cute guy in class.”

Reality 1. “ SHIT! Is it already 7?  I got to go! No, you know what?  Screw that!  I still have 20 minutes of beauty sleep that I can get. I’m just going to wear leggings and a sweatshirt. Who needs a cute guy when you can get an extra 20 minutes of sleep?”

Expectation 2.  “ This is I am going to make all my notes organized, and color coordinated. That way it’ll be easier to study.”

Reality 2.   *Papers are always a mess. Only writes notes in blue or black ink, and uses the colored pens when other pens go missing. *

Expectation 3. “I am going to eat healthy this year! Salads, fruit, and yogurt! It's the perfect way to go”

Reality 3. * Gets mozzarella sticks from the cafeteria for the 3rd time in a week.*

Expectation 4. “This is the year I am going to introduce myself to new people, and actually make new friends.”

Reality 4. *sits in the corner of the room on phone and avoid any eye contact with other students.*

Expectation 5. “Ok, the assignment was given to us 3 months early, I’m going to get it done now!”

Reality 5. *stays up until 3 am working on assignment the day before it’s due.*

Expectation 6. * At 9 pm*  “I have to get up early tomorrow, so I should go to bed now.”

Reality 6. *3 am * “Just one more episode.”

Expectation 7. “I’m going to talk to that cute guy in my science class! “

Reality 7. *attempts to talk to guy trips over a pencil on the ground and crashes into the trash can.* "Maybe I'll keep my mouth shut for the rest of this semester."

Expectation 8. “This is the year I’m going to join a bunch of clubs, and get involved on campus!”

Expectation 8. *Signs up for clubs shows up to the first meeting and never returns. *.

Expectation 9.  “I am going to study for this math exam as soon as I get home."

Reality 9. *after 3 snack breaks, 4 music videos, and checking Facebook for the 100th time. "Ok, now I  really need to focus.”  *Opens up textbook*  “ This is the wrong subject."

Good luck with classes this semester!!
