I’m so excited, but also a little nervous. Both just general jitters, but also with what happened in Manchester. Security is going to be tight, and I believe the police are going to be around the area just in case. A lot of people are refraining from taking replica weapons, to keep things a little smoother.
Finishing writing up the BC setup before I go, may or may not have chance to post something. If not, I’m back on Monday, and I have the week off. With no cosplay stuff to do, I’ll finally have time to get sims shit done! XD In the meantime, the apartment we’re staying at has free wifi, so I’ll be keeping up with my dash when I can, and may even post some con adventures :3
For the 6 characters ask thingy I'll give you: Fletcher Renn, Erskine Ravel, Lord Vile, China Sorrows, Anton Shudder and Billy-Ray Sanguine >:D I'm not naming Skul or Val here cause I have a need for your opinions on other characters of the series and I want to make it a bit more difficult :p
Push off a cliff: China Sorrows, I love her but good god I wouldn’t want her as a roommate. Who wants to stand next to China Sorrows when you’re getting ready to go out? And she doesn’t need a blanket. I’m sure China would survive falling off a cliff anyway
Kiss: Anton Shudder because he’s hot and I like the manbun
Marry: Lord Vile because i am literal trash and i really dig the tall, dark and evil thing. also because thanks to @tanzani-coil, @anton-shudder-gist and @runningwithbats there are some really cute Vile headcanons floating around and i can get with that.
Set on Fire: Erskine Ravel, sorry Erskine, you’re just my least favourite of these six and i’m still not over ghastly and anton
Wrap a Blanket Around: Fletcher Renn because he needs it. One girlfriend cheats on him, the next one tries to kill him, everyone treats him like a convenient piece of furniture. Protect Fletcher Renn.
Be Roommates with: BRS. I think he’d be fun to get absolutely rat-assed drunk with
Things I learned during my first weekend at college
Your parents will hover like crazy and try to help you unpack when you move in. They mean well, but if you’re overwhelmed don’t be afraid to kick them out for a bit.
Don’t ask your RA what bars to hit up in town (like one girl from my floor actually did)
Check your e-mail five times a day, your professors might be sending out syllabi or other helpful/important stuff ahead of time.
You will cry at least once while buying textbooks from the campus bookstore that you couldn’t find used on Chegg (sidenote: use Chegg)
Your dining hall probably has pizza available for every meal. Don’t eat pizza for every meal.
Even if you hated salads your entire life, you will learn to love them so that, you know, you don’t eat pizza for every meal.
Check your dining hall hours online. Some of them close between meals.
Leave your door open or do random Internet browsing in the floor lounge if you want to meet more people.
At least one of your posters will constantly fall down no matter how many 3M command strips you use.
A lot of campus events are lame. A lot of them are not. Go to as many of them as you can anyways to meet more people.
If you need time to yourself, take it. You’ll make friends eventually without having to hang out with them constantly.
Don’t expect to become BFFs with everyone you meet, and don’t expect to become best friends over your first weekend.
If you’re standing if a long period of time, bend/relax your knees every so often. If you keep them locked, you might trigger a nerve in your body that causes you to pass out (this may or may not have happened to me on my second day, oops)
Carry an umbrella if there is the slightest chance of rain. Carry one even if there isn’t, just in case.
Carry a sweater or hoodie always.
Pokemon Go is lit on college campuses; every single building is a gym or pokestop and there are lures everywhere. Plus, your eggs hatch in no time because you’re walking everywhere.
It’s okay to eat alone in a dining hall; either no one will care or someone will sit at your table and strike up a conversation.
If you really, really don’t want to eat alone, literally just knock on someone’s door in your hall. If they don’t want to go with you, try someone else. Chances are, someone else might be hungry, too or at least willing to walk over with you.
Come up with a roommate agreement. Decide when you’re cleaning, sharing policy, guest policy, light and noise preferences, etc.
If there is a massive involvement fair on campus, research some clubs online so you know what to look for. Otherwise you’ll be overwhelmed in two seconds.
Join a group chat with people on your floor or in the same area of study as you, it’s super helpful for general information.
Ask everyone you talk to to add you on Snapchat.
Simple things like taking out the trash or doing laundry will suddenly feel very overwhelming.
You learn a lot of stuff from being in college for only three days and not even taking any classes.
