Bye Everyone! Thank You So Much For Watching <3 Boston University

Hey, everybody, today I'm gonna be doing a dorm torm today. I'm gonna be doing a dorm tour of my room here at Boston University. I guess you could say I live in Warren Towers and it's not, like the nicest, like dorm building you will probably find, but you can definitely make it your own and make it really nice. And that's really what I've tried to do. And so I'm just gonna kind of take you around my room. You can learn a little bit about me. But I was just kind of how I worked included everything that I wanted in this small space. So let's get started. So I just got back from winter break and so my room was fairly clean that I left it really clean. Someone's gonna get started here. Bernie Walking in This is kind of just wearing my coat. Middle of January. Boston is a very cold in Stark's Where's, uh, one of my coats? Name Ian Wright from dry. You get every time this mirror here on the back of the door. Really nice forgetting running in the morning on then this is my closet. This comes with the dorm I really wanted to change it, but I'm still having had after her money changes its we're happy. Did you already want to invest in a new curtains? So I'm just gonna keep it. Plus it has right on it. This is my closet. I just ordered a shoe rack so that you'd be here really soon. And then here we have all my clothes, which I have found slowly accumulates throughout the year as I get more and more things so struggled the end of the year to move all of this out here on my backpack when I go back to classes in a couple days and then up here is where it gets messy. That's kind of where have all my extra toiletry stuff. Laundry. That's three things all right here, like my camera case and write papers for my printer. Just much cleaning supplies, closing staff. That's essentially the closet I used to have like a what you call it like a union organizer. Things hold T shirts, but it's winter certainly T shirts, and that's why all my teachers are here in the bottom drawer. Um, man, I have socks and underwear, and then I have, like, sweater stuff and then work out clothes, et cetera. Those are almost doors. They're already packed a lot. So if I hope in one, take 30 minutes and then you have the TV here I found It's really nice to have a TV is not. A lot of people here have. I'm a TV and I have a little ht my court, and we just got I'm an Apple TV, too, so I can watch Netflix or anything on here. And, um, it's really great because remember, like, friends wanna watch a movie or something. Please come here, because I, uh, have been up here is that it's for me. BC hockey game And then that pinata is from my birthing. It's broken, but we fixed up enough. So getting on the wall, I get a lot of compliments on this part of the room because they like kind of this polarities anybody having. Then the lights around. It kind of highlights all the little pictures I have, except this one's like lower than the sight of kind of bothers me. I'll fix after this and then this is my bed right here. So that's like sweater like throw blanket and then pillows and these pillows. I have different covers for each of them, and so I'll change him out like seasonally, like just hikers or someone's on there. I'm another kind of back to the basic design and then under my band way, have more toiletries, stuff in a couple boxes to ship things back to the end of the year. Those are my luggage for when I travel, go back home and then in other cities around here. And then there's not any organism thing. And then this is where I have a paper plates and everything. And then those ribbons air. There are food. Yeah, it's time to go bad, actually holds a lot. And then I have bed risers on here, too. More things. And then this is my favorite part of my room. This is my desk area. Polaroids, continue up here. And then we have a Seahawks y you feel at home and have our Lord and savior dual eba. And then these are a couple of pictures. Actually got this as a secret Santa gift. These are pictures from a coffee bar. Better do my friend Jeannie. And so I really like that was really personal gift. And then I always have dancing time, certain tissues because I've done steak a lot already. This is where my camera usually is, but I'm using came right now. I just keep things that my friends have written, and then this is my desk. Have more Polaroids here on the back sign couple post cars. I got this in Philadelphia. It's one of my favorite sayings. And then I walked in the store and it was on a little name type thing. And so I said, You get that there is my laptop. I've had this light up J for, like, a couple of years now, and kind of reminds me of all the rooms I've had, I move around. I would say a lot. I moved around a lot in the past couple of years, so that's one thing that's always been in my room was always kind of been a highlight. That kind of makes you actually like my room. And then this is the ugly part of them with all the cables. These are my books, school staff, the lamp on and then silverware, coffee mugs, photos of the stuff to read. And then here's where have, like important documents and stuff that I cannot lose. That's where we have our blunder, the clear vinyl. And then there's like, Booth, This is the view from outside my window Definitely got pretty lucky with this. I love it so much, and I love when I wake up early enough that you could watch. This carries over to absolutely gorgeous trash. Can that just be to get myself look cleaner? And then we are not having anybody have to go cups there. So I just make coffee in the morning. Those teen, honey, Morty and other some plates that use whenever I do cooking in here, which is rare on Dhe. Then I need to get more cups for this. But security we have. I use it at least three today, um, appears a printer. You don't really technically need to have your own corner near, but I found that it's a really useful doesn't like something due the next day or anything like that. You don't have to think about going somewhere. Working with him is not working on. Just do it right here. Microwaves. I'm a message to cook things warm up these any left for a while. We haven't done a lot of groceries. Actors, They just got back from winter break. I just went out and got some of these food. It's not a very big fridge, but you'd be surprised, Like, actually how much you could fit in here If you're going to that Tetris kind of stuff and then, yeah, the freezer needs some more stuff. Usually have, like, frozen fruit in there and then some more, like wants to stacking things in there as well. But I also have most of my food bins. So I guess that is the extent of my room. As you can see you like, it's not super duper big, but, like, make it, like work with the space that have and I should have taken, like, pictures and stuff when I had my Christmas decorations up. Because those were really, really fun and was really festive in here. Yeah, this is my room. Uh, I know that when I was waiting to come here to be you, I really wanted to know what, like a room looked like. Second, better prepare. So hopefully it's kind of give you a good idea of what the rooms are like. If you're curious about that and maybe just in general, how to decorate a dorm room, Nothing. I know how to do it right or anything. But this is just what makes you feel at home. I hope you enjoyed this video. You have any question comments which you give them down below? Get this video like and subscribe for more on this mess is just getting started. And so I have lots of cool car share, so okay. I just want to say I'm editing this video right now, and I know this looks so bad. The quality gets so much better. I promise. But, like, just watch how awkward I am in this beginning. This is my first time filming in my new room. So, like, I don't know why I wasn't, like acting normal, but, like, I'm really awkward and quiet in this next clip. Also, I feel like I'm gonna get this question already. Sort of like answer it right off the bat. Um, I'll be doing like, a dorm tour video once I'm actually all set up and I have everything for the room. It's just It's only a couple weeks then and I literally don't have everything I need yet, and you'll look a whole lot more organized. And I have, like, certain storage and that kind of stuff. So if that makes any sense, so yeah, here's the actual in short of the video, enjoy and watch how awkward I am. Hey, guys, welcome to the video today. We're gonna be doing a day in my life my sophomore year at Boston University. It's our influence right in front of fans not the best idea. This is what my normal Monday looks like. I get a lot of questions about how you balance, you know, music, internship school, having everything in between. And so I kind of just felt like the day in the life was kind of the best way to share that with you all. Yes. Was gonna get started, have a brand new vlog germs to check that out below. And let's just get this started. Good morning. I don't know why this angle makes it look so bald. Software just started. I don't like logging in public's. That's where we're at this angle first thing in the day 7 a.m. Head into the show that I could produce a friend. Josie takes about an hour to phone. Sure, as much of that as I can. And then you're gonna see all this. My carriage broke. And now I have to buy coffee every morning in the bank accounts running low because of that. Probably just buy a new cure IG and save them money. But we all know I'm not doing that Just finished. Um, and I just finished my business homework, and I finished my Lawn Society homework. So shout out to me. But actually the whole thing ready, you actually had me hide. You know, I'm putting that all in. What's coming up? I have a show this weekend in Boston. It's sold out today, which is really, really exciting. So I'm just really excited to finally play this music for my friends in Boston. How low and welcome to college got me like a New Heights magazine original podcast with Geneva, Jacob and Jewels. For the next 30 minutes, we'll be talking about something about the college experience that's currently on our minds. You can contact us with any suggestions, comments or questions and strewn new episodes every Monday at new heights magazine dot com slash college. We love to hear from you. I've done a sucky a day of longing. It's about eight o'clock right now. A lot of work Tuesdays are really busy day for me, and that's tomorrow. So, um, I got work to do, and I got a lot of work to do today. Today I received a lot of work to do, if that makes any sense, like literally. I was sitting in calculus and it just went black and I felt like my head fall forward and I like, shot up. And the girl next to me was like, Are you good? And I was like, I think so. So yeah, plus, it's just been like, really hot in Iranian mugging healing today, So I've kind of been like a little bit of a funk and just really warm like I don't know, like, am I supposed to be wearing a sweatshirt? Don't like, Hold me accountable for this, but I think what we're gonna do is replace the 1st 3 episodes in three consecutive days for you guys. I just think I may have just broke my beats. This new album, it's been really tricky. Um, starting like to do an album is the first night filmed or not filmed? This is the first time of recording album when I'm at school, so it's a whole new dynamic. I really have to like, bunch of the time out to focus on stuff, and I just reserved, like these spaces that we have on campus is sort of do this and just have the silence and like the time, the spaced like record, because when I do this music and stuff like I just like you need space with this New music is totally different than anything I've done before, and that's why I'm so excited. And I just couldn't wait until the summer to start recording. Some of it was so we're just doing some demos and stuff right now so I can send back to the people who are working on this with So they can kind of hear what I'm thinking. And it's very much a back and forth process, like I've been working on this one song for months, but it's like, seriously, the dopest song I've ever done. All right, y'all, it's, um, smoke 1 a.m. I just finished my calculus homework. We are done with homework for the day. My day's over. I'm going back to the dorm. I'm going to bed, I'm exhausted, and then we're gonna wake up and do the same thing again. Hopefully, you enjoyed this video. I kind of got a glimpse. Sorry. This is literally, like under tunnel lighting right now. Hopefully, kind of got a glimpse of what a day in my life is like. Stay tuned. There's a lot more on the way. can it wait? Wait a mi What's up, guys? It is Friday afternoon. Now I just kind of finished my typical fry day. I was on the show this morning, and then I went and I had to do a research study for one of my classes. It's required. And then I went to class. I worked with my team on a group project. Then I went to work, finished up a couple projects that I've been working on my internship. And then I had a work meeting, and then I went to lunch. I met with the photographer who it's gonna be taking the images and shots for my next out moon. We had just a really good conversation about what the vision is and how we're gonna execute that. Because I have this really clear aesthetic and concept in my minds that I really trust her to execute. We're starting at the early stages, just kind of planning and stuff, and then we're gonna actually take photos. And I really want this next air to be so interesting visually and so that's why we're spending a long time on the artwork, um, have some cool ideas and concepts that are so deep and there's so much metaphor behind it. Um, and I think you're gonna be surprised. I came back to my room. I just finished my lunch Fridays. By the time this rolls around, I I get about five hours of sleep a night. It's really, really bad, and it's something I really need to work on. But this is what I just like Crash. The week has just brought me down so heavily, and I just really find my time too. Readjust myself Friday nights, actually, usually pretty chill for me. I like just to catch up. I'm really tempted to record a song because I wrote a song this week that I'm really excited about, and I want to get some sort of demo going with it, so I'm not gonna do that. Instead, we're kind of chilling, and I wanted to start up this fog because I did a really bad job of putting out any sort of content well this week. But But, um, you see this? It's gonna be last week, and that's just because there was a lot going on. I had jury duty this week. Um, I had a lot of extra projects. My internship this week and I had an exam this week interviewing for a couple internships and stuff starting now. And for over the summer, Just a lot of stuff has happened. I want to talk this weekend because this begins a three day weekend and I don't actually have a lot of land. So you're gonna get to see kind of a cool weekend my life and what that looks like playing right now is to go hiking later. Um, I think on Sunday, just because I want to get out of the city for a little bit Don't get me wrong. I love living in the city and, like, literally, I'm sitting writing from my window right now. I'm looking down the street and I have the most beautiful view I do miss just like seeing trees. And then I'm going to London in a couple weeks for spring break. What's more than a couple weeks? So I have to finish booking stuff for that trip. Yeah, we're gonna be doing some stuff on that trip to so prepare The ball is really starting to get rolling on this next air. An album that I'm putting together. I don't know what I'll do. I could really taken out right now, but I don't like napping. It just really feels off my whole day. I don't know why a lot of people do, but I just can't do it. So anyway, welcome to the weekend Flog. This is my life, everyone. Good morning. I look sleep. I'm going Thio quick yoga cardio kind of class This morning I've been taking a couple classes at court power in Fenway and I really, really like it just because it's different than anything that I've ever done before. And it's really just gonna be a good start to my day. I think I only ever done the later classes, but now we're gonna do a morning class. I'm gonna meet some friends there, could see me busy day, but first we're gonna get our body moving. I just woke up about an hour ago, had a little bit of coffee and injuring tons of water. Because you sweat so much in these classes, it's really important to get here body hydrated and you're even just dehydrated after a night's sleep. Anyway, um and I'm gonna pack up my things and get going. I'm already running a little bit late if you wanna watch, Like my morning routine, What I do in the mornings that's just gonna be in the description makes you check out that video. And now I'm off to the public library to do some work because I really just want to get off campus and get into the city a little bit more. If you never been to the Boston Public Library, at least look at pictures because it's beautiful. It's a wonderful space just to study. It closes in a few hours. I don't have too many too much time to spend there, but I'm gonna come back and I'm gonna work on some songs. And then tonight I'm gonna go to the booth time. Hey, guys, because this is these extra clip won't make any sense to you. It'll actually look very weird. You didn't if I didn't get a booking on campaign with July right now way we're taking the photos that will be bored already. You know, I published posted until this from behind the scenes. Half his face is only a thief existed. Why? Wearing shoes with where she was in the bathroom. Paul, do you wear sandals in your bathroom? That's the whole point. Nobody. Finally, you get that You let I want a razor too. What? Most asked, Do you have crows? Where? Good. I'll get snot. Morning. It's afternoon. We're out of the city for a couple hours at least. All that cracking and snapping is ice. We decided to go hiking at Little Sex Fells. The trails are full of ice because I gonna put two and two together and think, you know, middle of Windsor, its wake wet Just note trails will be fine, but it's fun though we all noticed right when he stepped out of the Hoover that the air is so much cleaner here literally is fresher And just I couldn't breathe so easy. Not like sewer mixed with lead mixed with cigarette smoke, A little bit of Popeye's. Either we're gonna like, slip in today or have a great time. You don't hear from us again. There's no follow up to this. You know what happened? You know. Okay, this is like money. Everybody. Sorry, I look like this. I just woke up, get some breakfast, meeting my little coffee and then I did some work on. I responded to a couple e mails and stuff and getting ready for some things I have this week and made some decisions that are really exciting. And you will know about soon today. Um, I am gonna hopefully get off campus here. I haven't done a post for my coffee block yet. Which, by the way, you don't follow it. You definitely should. It's pretty cool. So I need to go to Cambridge to do that. But I don't really want to anymore. I think it's still will, but, like, it's kind of gross day outside. Been thinking about, like dying my hair like a little bit darker. But then one of my friends was like, But you're so pale like that might like the contrast might look weird. I was like, you know, that's probably true. So and I wanted to, like, get a haircut differently and, like, do a new kind of style is beginning to summer and stuff. But I'm not gonna figure that out right now. I'm just gonna get my hair cut for today work and stuff to do it Like after we went hiking yesterday. I just didn't do anything. I applied for a couple more jobs. I'm tryingto internal work some things out for New York this summer. It might not end up working out. That's all right. But if that doesn't work out, I have to have a backup plan. So it's kind of preparing for a backup plan working on a project that is coming out before summer. I should stop saying that cause it's not completely confirmed yet, like things could fall through and it could not happen. But But I'm gonna put it out there in the universe that that's gonna happen. I am amazed. That is still so I thought it was gonna be done, but it is not. I got a second cup of coffee, get a bunch of places, do some cleaning. Now, I don't know why involved in this is gonna be so boring. Let's put it this way. I'm trying to work on Marie Condo in my life. I think I know she likes you Fold shirts like a certain way. I need to watch the show again because I forgot now, like her technique and everything, I need to get rid of a lot of clothes to be honest, I don't I got one of those people that has a lot of clothes but doesn't wear all of them. I'm sorry my fans on It's a little bit warmer today, so that's a turnoff. So many T shirts, especially in Boston, like you don't we're t shirts. Unless it's like July. I'm just gonna go with my classic. I have to get rid of some stuff, but that's okay, because I don't wear it all anyway. And there's people who can wear it. I don't need it. And there's people that do so we'll just I just don't need it. All right, guys, I'm gonna finish cleaning. Gonna clean my bathroom to which you don't want to see. That's gonna be the end of this block. Thank you so much for watching. I will talk to you well, real soon. And I'll see you next time. It should give us a like, even though it was a horrible log we should subscribe to. We're close to 1000. If we haven't already hit it yet, Andi, everything want to get there? Because that would mean a lot to me. Um, and I'll see you guys next time Okay, Bye. Hey, guys, this is the end of the block. But there is one last thing I do kind of want to add onto it to be totally, totally transparent with you all. And that's exactly what I've been trying to do since day one. There are, of course, parts in the weekend that I don't show on the log just because they don't necessarily need to be documented online or tied two the brands that I'm building in the sort of audience and trying to connect with. So, of course, there are those elements of college that, of course, you can all understand and is implied, and you probably knew what happened and everything, but just I want, you know, because a lot of slug was work related things. And I want you to know that I do take care of myself. I don't always work. I do have fun of friends, and we do a lot of things. I just don't always fog those sort of things because I don't necessarily want them tied to what you see to me online. So that's that, um, again, Thank you for watching this Hi, everybody. Thank you so much. You're clicking on this video today Ever giving you a tour of my dorm University's miles child. I'm a sophomore here. Just moved into my own room and talk about it Finally do for you today. So my room is the size of a shoebox. Okay, now we can start. This is the entrance. This is the door where you leave from this'd is from my collaboration before me that I did. It reminds me a lot about the trip to Ohio I took last summer and all the people I met. And I really just like saying, Get out there. Works with kind of door. See, every morning, obviously just bath towels. Here is where I keep the shoes that do not fit in my drawers, which I'll get to shortly. Just get my backpack here for exit was dirty yoga mat that I honestly rarely use. This is the best part is curing. Don't tell anyone I have this around technically allowed to have it, just like forget it After this video. This is among I got from my friend Sam for Christmas and tea and stuff in there. All the silverware I've had the security for a long time. This is what my friend Josie got me for Christmas. It's a scratch off map of the world and we have this, like dream to always like travel and do as many things to be can together. And so it is kind of like a reminder of her. Well, she's abroad. To see all the places that I've been doesn't look like a lot because it's just the whole world. But we're gonna check off more of those soon the front of the fridge. This is really where I just keep a lot of, like, general stuff. My name tags for my internship postcards. This isn't even mine are supposed to send this months ago. I'll do that. This is my favorite saying my mom got average magnet for me and send it in a care package. This is from a trip to Philadelphia. I took with my mom, obviously, uh, and this is not to be pretentious. Anything. It more so just reminds me of the incredible experience I had of touring last summer, and it's supposed to it from my very first headlining show. This isn't closet. Obviously, I love having a printer. I highly recommend it. Actually, as a college student, even though there's printing service is all around campus, it actually just really makes it easier on me. I can print things right before I go to bed or if I need to write in the morning. I don't have to go anywhere and go out of my way, and it lasts a long time. I've had it for both years of school now, and I've used it countless number of times so highly recommend that just a site in my closet is very packed. We don't have a lot of space on Ben. This is where I just keep all my like, uh, toiletry products and stuff cables in the paper for the printer. Then I keep my winter jackets in our hallway Sweet closet. These drawers are my T shirts and then the rest of my shoes. This is a rug that has, surprisingly, lasted a long time from target. By the way, this is a fan's not going right now and just turn it off. I don't want it to sound video. Okay, I just, like really like white noise, so that's why I have it. It's usually going. There's all my mugs and then oh, my books and stuff that I use. I think I mentioned this in the last like door for video that I did. It's just a dollar coffee card from Bed Bath and Beyond, and it's lasted years. So shut up tonight and you can always get, like, a 50% off, 20% off about Beyonce's even last Sunday. Um, this is the worst part. There's no outlets in the side of the room, so we have this giant cable just going across. You either ignore it or just choose to enjoy it. I'm gonna get a beer that stands right here, but I just moved in, so give me a little time. I don't know if you can see the lights going around. This is the only time really, that I actually have the overhead light on. I don't like the overhead light. It's really strong, and it's not really nice on the eyes. So I really just keep those lights on. And I have a lamp and it's the perfect lighting when it gets dark. This is obviously a bed. Um, originally, when I moved into the room. The bed was over here and it just took up too much space. There wasn't a lot of floor, so I literally just pushed this whole thing. And it's perfect fit right here in this corner. And I really like you, too, because it's a lot more comfortable at night. I can look out and watch the sunrise literally only wake up. First thing I do is I open my blinds and helps me wake up over my eyes. Um, and then this is the air conditioning unit that I always hit my head on. These are Florida photos. These are older ones. This is like 2017 before, and then on this side is more so 2018 into this year. I have, AH, glory printer that I use instead of a Polaroid camera, and I really like it a lot because I could just take anything on my phone. I don't know. It's got to be thinking about bringing a separate camera for it. I can edit photos, make sure they're clear before I print them, and it uses the same film everything, and I get a lot of really nice photos out of it, and I guess this would be the time we're talking if they sponsored me, but they didn't. So they should. And then I don't know how much people really want to know. But like, these are pillows. Probably the profits from Amazon target. I don't know. Oh, this comforter, though this country from Amazon, and it's really good. It was, like $20. And I really like the white comfort because it makes me feel like I'm staying in a hotel. This is my laundry bag. It's full because I go through a lot of clothes in a week, then all these drawers, Uh, this is is Well, this is snacks, Mrs Food. Very messy. This is sweaters and stuff and that socks and underwear. My guitar case. And I'm not talking. This is all my suitcases, my keyboard. It's filming equipment and everything. And then in here is where I came more valuable sort of things, you know, like you even say that Probably not. No security. Pass your This is my desk. Obviously, um, I grew up in Seattle Seahawks flag. Hopefully, you know that this is Jay. My mom gave me for you. Stir a couple years ago. It's lasted a long time, though, So my best friends, we we need to replace that picture. It's getting old, and I do not. I look like Nemo in it. I got this in Philadelphia. I really like it. People are very surprised to see this. They thought I'd have something more fluffy on my desk. But, you know, that's just E do a lot of my score and stuff here behind my computer. This is where I just put a bunch of nice notes. People have written Lee really in ecstasies. I'm sitting here studying. Just reminds me of a lot of the love that their exit. There is a lot of the love that exists thes air cards. He's never run out. I've used them so many times. I don't remember buying more. Um uh, but they just say J hands were right on their to do lists and reminders and stuff. I only put this year to make my room look nicer. I don't actually read these. This isn't plugged in than those of the vitamins they take every morning. You do not look in that last stuff on, and I think it's for the interior. This is just my guitar. Obviously, this is the first time this semester I actually put my guitar out. Actually played a lot more, whichever the light, because I believe they're not actually have more space in this room than I would like in a double. And then this is a thermostat, probably with your part of the room. I have to keep it nice and warm in here, and I control with that. And I don't have to pay heating bill too, So you can go wild. No, I guess I don't know. I don't watch enough. A room tours. You, Robert tell by watching this that I don't You want to know where anything's from? I guess I could tell you. You should looking down below. Okay. What's that leak? I would like the comfort. I'll leave the comforter, I think anything I could find. How about that? Yeah, that's a good idea. I don't know any more college videos you want to see. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Better you do, then I am. I really am. Course. Just, you know, if you have any other questions. Advice. Thank you so much for watching over. This wasn't too boring. And he found it at least somewhat interesting. I love my little space. I was gonna say I hope you did too, but that's it was just a video. Thanks so much for watching. I guess I'll see you next time. What? It asked a question. I will. I guess there's no way you guess. What are you anyway? Oh, my God. The Antarctic booth. Did I come to tell me when I cover it all? Because if I don't cover it Hey, everybody, it's Jake. And if you're watching this video one, you could be a subscriber. Person watches my videos and you're probably wondering why I'm doing a video like this or two. You are somebody who clicked on this video because of the title. This is something you're interested in, and you probably never seen my face before. If that's the case, my name's Jake, you go whatever you prefer. I don't really mind either way. And I'm kind of making this video not as much for me as much as for you, because I'm currently about to start a huge next chapter of my life, and I'm very, very excited for it. And for those watching this video, you are probably likely doing the same. Currently are how to your nervous, excited, curious. Whatever you may be, hoping this video makes you feel better. I feel a little bit more at ease. I don't know if I know, or I might just make you more nervous. So yeah, this video, as you can probably tell about the title, it's gonna be about how I kind of got into Boston University. He's going to moving in about two weeks from now, when I'm filming this video, so I'm very, very excited moving at the end of August. I cannot wait. Yeah, And so if you are a current senior in high school, congratulations. You made it this far. But you're also probably insanely nervous right now because you have to start applying for colleges. I know. About a year ago, this point going into my senior year, I was absolutely horrified. I had really no idea what I wanted to do, where I wanted to go. And I'm somebody that really likes to plan ahead and haven't idea what they're doing long before. So this was a very, very nerve racking process for me. I guess what I could say is, it all works out. Um, it's it's a stressful process, but I'm kind of gonna go more towards now how I deal with my application process and such to help you deal with that in your own way and again in no way a mind some, like, sort of expert or know everything about applying. Or do I guarantee that doing this you will get anywhere, uh, wherever you may apply. But this is just kind of what I did. And I might give you some ideas how to make yourself stand out because they read a lot of applications and you want to make sure you stand out if you really want to get in, especially to your dream schools. Also, she mentioned BU was my top school and was actually, I'm gonna be totally honest in this video. The only school I got into So, um, I honestly feel like it was fate. Um, it was meant to be, which is good, because I'm a very indecisive person. So if I got into other schools, even if he was my top when I probably happily an insanely hard time figuring this out So anyway, I applied to be you through the common app. I also apply to you. See, you see schools and you as well. You see school, they're kind of something different. Other home ordeal. I don't even I know what's going on anyway. Have us through the common app. I'm really just kind of straightforward application. If I remember correctly, Nothing like two. Insane, um toward BU September before I really, really started working on college applications to make sure it's someplace I really wanted to go toward a couple schools in Boston and I really fell in love with the city and I really, really fell in love with you specifically not as much the other schools, I think just cause you had this amazing campus united feeling with it, like I felt like I was in the city, which is where it really, really want to be when I'm going to school, but also feel like I was on a college campus where everybody is like supporting one another. And it was a great feeling. And if I got that feeling just from like a two hour tour, I knew that it was really genuine and really something special. So I kind of just did the application, wasn't really sure. I knew it was kind of kind of be a reach for me again. I'll just be straightforward. I think I got a 29 on the A C T. And I know I got a 13 40 on the estate. He had to look that up just before I start from this video because I don't remember. It feels like an eternity. Eternity ago, Andi was kind of hard to go back to those stressful times, but it's all over, and I think it all paid off because I got it. But and as for my grades, they're really good. I got a 4.8 my senior year and basically four point my junior year, so I felt really good. I was kind of on the upward trend with grades of speaking out, and so I think that's always a good sign. And they liked that. But here is like my huge tip. Why I'm really making this video. I really think I got in because I really utilized making connections within the school. And I think that got me to stay because if people remembered me again, I don't really know if this really happened. But this is what I kind of think happened because I knew he was gonna be a reach for me, and I was honestly surprised I got in. So I met. Um, I don't know if he was one of the actual people that reads the applications or not. We just kind of manages that, like I normally sure how that works. But I met somebody who works in the admissions office on the tour, Introduce myself, talk to him for a little bit briefly, and then we kind of, uh, moved on. I left, went to tour a different school. That was that. But then when I got back home, I live on the West Coast in San Francisco area. So it was just me, and I doubt that went to tour the school. When I got back, I was really excited telling my mom and the rest of my family all about it. And there was an information session in San Francisco that I decided we should all go to because I was so set on view at that point, it really wanted my family to see how amazing it was to, and that same admissions officer was pat that information session. He actually let it. And so at that session, I went up to again wrapped him again. He remembered me and we talked more introducing my family asked him much of questions because at that time I was doing online school, and so I wanted to make sure that didn't affect my sort of chance application at all. This was really before I really started the whole comment out process and he said No, just get me in contact with your school. But he never heard of the program that I was doing before, and so I was sure to do that. And sure enough, I went home. I contacted my counselor with that program, told her everything, got her in contact with him. He contacted her. He got all the information from my school. I sent him a thank you, and there was a little like email chain going on. And so by this time, I had met the guy once, and I'm twice interesting to my entire family and had e mailed him back and forth. Government touch my school. So I was basically, like, three things that I think I did that was really important and giving kind of my name and just showing him that I was ready for this dedicated. I was to this and how he really wanted it and showed him that I was willing to put in that effort. Thio working my counselor to make sure you got all the information about me schools like march ish. I got a call from that same guy. He told me I got in and I think it was at home and I realized I think I made that connection and that lasted. I think that's really why I had such a benefit her that competitive edge, not only because of my grades, my, that makes all my extra keep their stuff, my work experience, everything. I think that kind of building connections with him in the school was that kind of cherry on top. So I don't know if he read my application specifically, but he probably saw it. He probably remembered my name. And you probably remember how passionate I was and how dedicated I was, too applying to school and new talks like that. I wasn't. I think that really made a difference. So kind of getting into the second part of this video kind of tips for applying. This is kind of you specific, cause this is kind of what I'm focusing on. I haven't really thought about any of the other school sense, because again this was my top school. Just I think anywhere you can just work on building those connections, getting your name out there because it turns out there's a lot of people applying and you really want to make sure you put yourself out there as somebody who's passionate about school and was willing to make that extra effort take that extra step to make your application totally best. It can be in really representative you, But also to show that, like, in person side if you get the chance, um, go to tours. What information sessions? All that Because they told me that they keep a record of everybody's names who do that. He hopes you in the process because they know. Okay, this person actually made the effort to come out on tour. This person actually made the effort to come to this information session on a Sunday afternoon like they're really, really dedicated to this thing. They want this really bad. I think that really made a difference. Um, and emailing him like not letting this be something that slides by think really just showed how passionate was about school and how badly I wanted to be a part of that community. And I guess just for a normal application stuff there was a section just about why I wanted Thio, um, come to be you. And they like Boston, but not necessarily just Boston, because turns out there's time for other schools in Boston, but they wanted to know exactly why I wanted to go to BU. I told them all those things about their selling you earlier about the community and how everybody at that tour was just so nice. And I just felt like I fit in like a perfect puzzle piece. And I told him I was excited about all the specific events, all the specific clubs, all the specific academics, specific people. I think you really, really have to be specific when you are writing those kind of things about why you want to choose this school, because I think it shows that you've really done your research. You are confident this isn't just a school on the side or a safety school or whatever you You may call it that you really put in the effort to make sure that they know that this is where you want to be. And you know the school you're trying to just as well as they dio. So I think that's really important. And I guess when you're doing your essays and such just to remain true to yourself, I had a lot of people edit my essays and everything, and it got to a point where people are suggesting things that made me feel like not necessarily was me anymore that was writing it. And I think that's an important line to recognize when you're doing college applications and everything, because you have to make sure that you know people read over it because you don't really know who's reading over your essay, only somebody you don't really know. It's really important to get feedback from other people like that. But you also want to make sure you don't become too involved in automatically doing that few back give, because then it's not really you anymore. And you're presenting yourself accurately to the people who want who want to meet you. Um, and I would just don't be afraid to brag. I don't know when your application I totally did. I honestly exaggerated some things I've done, like made it sound like some clubs or whatever I've done in my high school experience. We're a lot more elaborate than they were again. It's not, um, it's creating that profile of me, and I'm moving for something small that something that really represents me, and it's important to put it. So don't be afraid of bragging. Yes. No, I have. Course. I mean, I haven't gone to school yet. This is just about lying and everything, but I'm really, really excited. I fuel so great about my decision. And I'm so confident that it's gonna give the time of my life. And I cannot wait. And yeah, if you have any sort of questions whatsoever totally up for joining with current seniors or juniors, whoever or whatever you drive, if you're starting to think about school again, I'm no expert. I only applied to a few schools. I got into BU. I was wait listed for N Y. U. And I didn't get into either. You seize, I applied Toso. I don't really have a backup plan, which probably isn't the best idea. So take it from me. Always have a backup plan to a safety school to make sure your safety school something. Also be really passionate about. Don't let it be something that you're not into. Because then if that does become the only option, you're not disappointed in any way. Yeah, that's kind of this video I don't really prepped for anything. It just kind of just sat and talked. That was my experience. It's not as nerve racking as you think. Going into the whole college admission thing. It's relatively simple. Just make sure you start early enough. Don't wait to the last minute. You want to be able to work on something, have a few days to think about what you did because you're gonna want to go back, change a couple of things you're gonna want people read over it. You're gonna want to include different things. You hear different people talk about how to. So just make sure you have plenty of time to work on an application. And honestly, the worst part of it is waiting for results from that, like January to March, period. That was really nerve wracking. That's already didn't like probably the most. But, um, yeah, they don't want it up great. And I'm really happy about my decision. I think it's gonna be a great choice for me. So anyway, that's this video. If you enjoy this at all, let me know, because I do more talking kind of videos like this. I don't do many um, this kind of format. But maybe I should change that. If you have any questions, comments, anything to share, comment that down below. Get this video like that would mean a lot to me. You can subscribe if you'd like I posting so many different kinds of videos. Now, what are you find something you like on you. Just stay tuned is on the way. And thank you for watching this video. I really appreciate it. And good luck with all your applications. And if you heard he got into the school Congratulations. That in and of itself is a huge accomplishment. That's it. So by and I'm go terriers. Hey, everybody, thank you so much for clicking on this video a few things before we kind of really dive into this. Sorry, this lighting is so bad, I don't have, like the majority of my recording equipment and stuff with me. I'm a parent's house is part of the summer's. So this is the last video how to college Siri's for me and I have had the greatest time putting together these videos because I really feel like they have improved my ability to kind of talk about my experiences, everything but also hopefully have given you a little bit of advice and just based off of my own experiences prepared you for your college experience. You can apply those things to somehow improve your current college experience. I did an interview a couple of weeks ago now, and the person who was interviewing me actually had seen these How do college of Videos? And she herself was going into college and really just mentioned how they really actually kind of helped her and prepared her for what to expect in college. It was really nice to hear, and it made me feel really good because I really put a lot into these videos, and it's nice to see that I just got glasses. If you can tell I have, like, my eyesight has always been okay, just hasn't been the greatest. It's always been good enough that I didn't necessarily need them. But, like as I'm getting older and as are doing more like schoolwork and I'm doing reading and I for like in looking like computer for, like hours and hours a day, it really helps. And already, like I can see myself so much better in the viewfinder. It's insane. So hopefully my videos and look better as well. I'm filming them. I can actually see what's going on. This video is gonna be all about scheduling how to manage your schedule on everything in college. This really depends on the kind of person you are, who you're trying to be, what you're trying to go for. For me, I was somebody who at the start college, really just wanted to make sure I did everything that I wanted to make sure took advantage of the opportunities and really pursued the kinds of things. I wanted to be a part of it, of course, with school though the number one thing is actually going to class signed? No. My biggest advice. Go to class. There will be people who called you Don't go to class, Really Go to class. Never go to class. It was occasionally skip every once in a while I will be totally open and honest with you guys. I rarely skipped class a few times That I did. It was because, for example, we had a huge project. He pushed it back like another week we had. Would you like another Pierre editing day? And at least in my experience, I don't get too much from my appear headed thing. So I went to the library instead and worked on my own project instead of going to class that day. It's things like those when I actually skip class, though I always go to class even because even if you're not necessarily getting something out of that our like, what would you really be doing with that? Our like you are gaining so much just from being there. Having professor know you're being there that you care about the class. Really? It goes a long way and then it then dismissed return to boost your grade. You continue, Professor. I never missed a single class that really helps. So really, when you're making your schedule, you want to prioritize your classes, make sure you don't ever have to miss any of those for me. I really like morning classes, first semester of college. I had class about 9 a.m. every single day of the week and then would be done around. Knew that was a really great schedule, because by the time it hit like 12 o'clock, my brain starts to kind of shut down and go into, like, the lazy or part of the day. And that's when I had more of, like, activity based things. And I had to listen to lectures and stuff in the morning when I could just drink my coffee and kind of be attentive. Second, most are actually tried something different where my earliest class was at noon and I was done around five. I had a three hour class on Monday nights, and I had no class on Wednesdays. I loved that schedule so much, I find that in the mornings are more productive, doing like small type assignments, tasks, laundry, all those extra kind of things. I could just get done in the morning, annoying. It had to get them done by noon for class really helped me just kind of jump and get on it. So by the time I got to class at 12 o'clock, I really felt like I had already done a productive day. So it really depends on you. It's gonna take a couple tries to see what really works for you. Invest in your schedule freshman year. You probably will go to class five days a week. I just got lucky because second semester, the classes I were taking, we're just minimal class time when creating your schedule. I don't really recommend going over five hours of class a day. It's really easy and really tempting just to one of load everything into one day and then just have the rest of the easy. My roommate last semester He had, like, class from like 9 to 9 on Mondays and then had like one class Tuesday Thursday and had the rest of the week off, which works for him. But really, I know I couldn't sit in class and get out of the lectures. What I needed to. If I was in class sitting there for 12 hours on a Monday, I knew I would do better having them spaced out. So when creating my schedule for this fall at the start of my sophomore year, I knew I kind of had to follow that similar schedule I had last semester where I like, had Wednesdays off classes at, like, noon. Just discussions on Fridays. And I know this is probably particular to BU. I don't really know much how it works and other schools, but your class sort of like layout looks like and everything. But my biggest piece of advice is just to schedule around. You. Try how different things, see what you like, and I know when you're most productive. Most people kind of already know, especially just going through high school. You know, are you more productive in the mornings, more productive in the afternoons? Evenings to make the decision? Should you schedule your classes when you're most productive or not when you're most productive? Because I've found that having classes in the evening afternoon when I'm not as productive, forces me to be productive and pay attention, whereas in the mornings when I'm or my mind is more a week, I want to accomplished more. I'm able to do the homework and everything, plus, in dealing with the time construction of having a later class, that I actually have to get things done. It's not in the evening where I'm working on homework and it's like 11 o'clock, like I still have more work to do. I have to stay up in my I sleep. It's less. I'm really proud of myself. Actually, I think the shortest night of sleep I've had my freshman year was probably six hours. I am somebody who needs, like, eight hours of sleep a night to be productive and do everything that they need to. D'oh! That's what I made sure happened. So moving on from actually scheduled classes, adding and extracurriculars, this is a whole new bubble itself. Most of your meetings and extracurricular things will be in the evenings, so you really want to make sure you have usually Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Aaron, A lot of things happened, so last semester I was in my class of five. Asia could go right to meetings right to everything kind of clubs and stuff I was involved with. That's a really common time for people to meet Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. You kinda wanna leave those open so you could be open to club opportunities. Okay. A ems adm. Zar inevitable. I consider myself very lucky that I never had taken a t m class. You probably will go. I just want to reiterate. Scheduling is a very per person kind of scenario and issue. I know now when scheduling I have my internship on campus, and I know that is like 4 to 6 hours at a time. So I've left holes. So I have basically all of Wednesday and after 9 a.m. on Fridays, I have free for those today. And I'm trying to work another job and I need time for I'm starting a magazine. I need time for those meetings and everything. I've saved time, evenings. I have saved that time on Friday to work Wednesday to work, and my weekends are free. So really, you learn kind of as you go. What best works for you? I thought I'd want all morning classes, first semester, freshman year. So you really have to kind of work on the case by case basis. Try how different things and also understand that you're not gonna get like, only three days a week of class. You're there to go to class, so prioritize that. Then think about internships, clubs, everything like that. Scheduling is definitely a really hard thing to Dio. I have learned so much about organizing my time, time management, everything my first year, and it's not something I can really talk about. Have click for you. It's really something you need to work on on your own and figure out what works best for you. Lastly, make sure you have a solid calendar. I knew people who didn't have, like Calendar, no idea how they survived, because I find myself seeing opportunities and saying Yes, then I want my calendar. A week later, when it's happening, I forget that it's happening and I need that on my calendar. Actually, remind me to go to this thing. I just I think I use whatever the Apple calendar. Is it on My Mac. I used that calendar schedule everything, but I know a lot of people use Google calendar. Those are all really good programs. Some people still like doing writing in a planner, doing things that way for me. I really like my digital calendar because I could check in on my laptop check on my phone so I don't need to have my laptop with me. If I'm scheduling a meeting, you're adding study session, whatever it may be. So scheduling is really important. Set up that time management platform, whether whatever it may be, whether it be in a planner online Google whatsoever. And by now you probably have something. I am a huge organizational person. I really like color coding. I really like scheduling Mess is something I really like. So I get a lot of good energy when I have, like, a schedule in front of me when I have things like color coded like work class everything. So that kind of concludes this video. But before you click away, I just want to say if you have any additional questions about your college experience, whether it be scheduling roommates, finding work, internships, any the videos that I've done for any other questions whatsoever, I really, really want to be a resource. I know it could be such an intimate experience, and there's only so much you can find online. Usually called. Besides, just have there academics, their study abroad, programs and everything. But if you really want to know about student life, I can definitely speak well for B. You and I can even mention just kind of things I've learned. If you're not going to be you some other school, I really want to act as a resource because I know I would have really benefited going into my freshman year from somebody like me that just kind of experiencing kind of give this advice like you're not gonna know this at first. Even somebody just telling me you're gonna have to trial and error and figure it out. What kind of he's just a lot of the stress and there's tons of great on campus. Resource is Make sure you look into those. Scheduling is really hard thing, and it's really gonna say it again in case Mickey Spaces, because some people really like to reserve time to relax. People like me, like toe book their day. One last thing What I did was to make sure I did got everything done. This is more of a time management thing other than scheduling what I did waas the night before on like just my notes on my computer. Anything I would write out what I'm doing for like every hour for the next day I get That's kind of meticulous and everything. It really helped me be productive and get everything done. I would write my to do list, then say OK, eight o'clock. I'm waking up from 8 to 9 of getting ready, doing shower, whatever I need to dio 9 to 9 30 Breakfast 9 30 to 10 o'clock. You are editing. Uploading this video video 10 o'clock. You have class until 12. 12 to 1. You are meeting with this person for lunch to discuss this from 1 to 3. You have this other class from 3 to 5 year meaning with this person to study 5 to 6 you have a meeting for this 6 to 7. You are going to the gym you're working out 7 to 8 is dinner. I know that sounds like a lot and it can be really overwhelming, but just doing that helped me keep on track on the day and just stay as productive as I needed to be. It was a really useful resource. I still do it to this day, and it's something that really just makes effect. I have a lot more of a control on things and just really helps me out. Generally, if you have any questions about scheduling, please let me know. Thank you guys. So much for watching this. How to college video?

Thank you so much for watching on behalf of Geneva. Jules and I have a great college experience. We're here for you if you need anything and we So along the hallway in the sea affair, all the teachers office is, it is a super friendly community here, and the teachers always have their offices open, and you can pretty much come in at any time and haven't office hour. My freshman year, I was always hang out by movement. Teacher Yoel, the student teacher relationship here is super friendly. Everyone is with a first name basis, and it really lets you feel comfortable in the classroom because you are doing such vulnerable work. Here we are in one of the typical CF classrooms. This is used not for rehearsal but more for play writing and directing classes, where you study more specifics of theater practicum Here I am, and one of the smaller black box faces on the third floor of the C F A. The CIA has three black bucks theaters where a lot of productions were held and they are super versatile. And that's the point of a black box. You doesn't have a lot of proscenium stages, which were just normal, like traditional theatre, because we feel like that is limiting toe are actors and tor production and design teams. So we have several black boxes, which offer an extremely versatile way of performing. Here I am on the fifth floor, which is a gallery space that was usually a little bit more colorful, I think. But currently I know that the FAA design and art students are currently studying Cubism and Minimalism. So they're doing things like this, which is not Chris end of part. I like the colorful stuff, and that's a quick tour of the CIA. All right? Right now, Met fit rack. I can't really go in and film. I'm gonna have to go and do that sneakily. So let me talk about it. And then I'll show you some clips of what it looks like inside that wreck is a state of the art exercised facility that BU has. It has four floors. It has a pool. And as workout rooms, it has elliptical machines as a rock climbing wall. It has, uh, tennis court. It has table tennis courts. It has basketball. It has ropes. It has.

Here is the key. There's always Yeah, and they have different like fun nights like they had nineties night last year, which was nostalgic in a way that none of us actually remember because we were born in like ninety nine, like Western Night, which is a cowboy theme. The space night, which is space food. They've underwater food, which is all underwater. What's in the middle? What? Look at that pastor licking them potatoes from them greens. Liam, what you got? I got a nice hamburger from he's done it. This is a freshman here. Do you love the dining hall? Yeah. Some very enthusiastic president about the signing off. Did I get too much dessert? Hell, yeah, But Lian slight, slight me in the dining hall. So it's all for free. Always for a friend, it's for a friend. That's thing about dying hope is that you can come here on a weekend or any day and stay as long as you want and eat as much as you want. It's really good to come here like on a weekend and do your homework and just do one swipe and get as much food as you want. It's really fine. Another thing is that the people who work in the dining hall are really awesome. Like last year, I was friends with Carrie, who worked the pasta station, and she was looking amazing. Has also friends with Monica, who did the vegetarian station so pretty much It's an amazing spot, really good food. Sometimes it gets a little bit repetitive, but I feel like every month or so they're able to mix it up. And if your inventive than the food's always go easy is that? Was that a successful trip? The dining hall course. It was always a successful trip. Dining all. All right. I'm gonna go home and do some homework. Yeah, me too. Keep the grades up, catch Thie, upperclassman and calm usually don't have really busy schedules. A lot of her classes are called independent classes, where it's just kind of like one block of class of time. Not like two times a week were like with a discussion. So my schedule's pretty light, and I actually don't have any classes Mondays and Fridays, so I feel that with my internship. But if I'm not, I'm internship in our free time. I will either hanging around, watch movies or TV shows from my friends. If I go out, I'll go to cafes around the city, visit some friends in other schools or just off campus. Michael did a lot of concerts at Paradise Rock Club, which is right down the street from where I live for House of Blues, which is right next on my part. Come on. Sometimes they go to museums like is Boast to regard the museum with buffet, which will get free access to because we'll be Houston's. There's a bunch more museums that we get access to. Well, sometimes I go to the movie theater. Regal Cinemas is right by federal was well, right now. Luckily, I only have one class today, but I think it most. I had four classes in one day, but that's not really typical, usually two or three. And personally, I prefer to study in my room or in some alone, just around campus. I really don't like library. It's like kind of weirdly quiet. I prefer to mean places like the Calm Lounge or the GS. You just places that are, you know, a little busier, and I don't feel weird that study this building is the College of Communications. This is where I have all of my classes this semester. I'm taking three classes there right now taking storyboarding editing, the motion picture and sound design which are all really cool and very hands on production based I will be a luxury at the radio station. There are people broadcasting live in there every single day this week from six a. M. Two a. M. My show is currently a ten. A midnight show. What kind of a long trek back after my show at midnight, but totally worth it. I love the radio station. It's brand new. It's uh, too No, it's one year old. This's the classroom where I have my motion picture editing class. As you can see, it's a pretty big room with a lot of desks in a big TV front. Obviously, this class can hold a lot more people, but I think my classes read maybe twenty people total Right now, I'm in basic dining hall, which is the biggest adding on campus, also known as Marciano Commons. It has two floors, and there's a ton of good food there. Stations like he's a vegan station. There's always pizza. There's gluten free food. There's always sharing options, too. And there's a really good selection. The chefs are all really nice and try to make really good food. Everyone simply best items in the dining hall of the Mac and cheese, which sometimes they have made to order. And you can add other toppings. The Eminem, Blondie's our personal favorite line or any of the little high things that they have a different creams. I got prize and I got Moroccan Su casa across the grounds cream eventual suit. Just calling. Besides, the dining hall says a ton of places on campus that you eat things like triple play. We have a blaze Pizza, auto pizza, bunch of cafes got life alive, which is an organic cafe reason canes, which is really big after sports games. None of them take our dining man points, so you're gonna have to pay and your money. But there's a lot of good food to explore. On a night out. I'd like to go explore. Yeah. No. Let's eat. What? Think about it. This Cannoli from MySpace. Excellent. Wait. So what a typical night in I usually hang out with my friends, but, uh, the time He's pretty poor right now because all my friends have exams, A ton of work to do this week as well, Uh, which is kind of an inevitable thing In college, I'm sick, but typically on a night in with my friends, we just do some dumb stuff. Usual. It'll consist of us stealing desserts from the dining halls to bring back to our rooms. We'll play, you know, we games like Mario Kart or we'll watch movies were big fans of like, scary movies. Listen to music and just hang out.
