Hey, guys, what's up? Its emergency And welcome back to my channel. This is my first time doing a video in my dorm this semester. Like sitting down. So, like, this is weird. I'm sorry if, like the focus is offer whatever, if it goes off or anything because I'm using my actual camera for this My using my phone. Can you guys hear that? I live with that. I guess today's video is going to sort of be like me spilling the tea, but not really spilling the tea. I'm just giving you my experience, my truth of the food system at G W. Without further ado, I'm gonna break this up in the three parts. The good, the bad and not the ugly because we're positive people around here Before I get in this video, I just want to say this is in no way bashing G W or their food system. These are just things that I personally believe that could be improved or things that I personally don't really like about the new system and that I like to see changed in the future, if possible. I'm very ill informed when it comes, like why things are the way they are. I'm just here letting you guys know what I feel. What is up. What's good. So you guys didn't sort of get an idea for what I've experienced with food and just like the dining plan after W. If you go here and you actually like, experienced this firsthand, let me know down the comments below what your experience is. Let me know if it's similar. Different if I'm crazy, if I'm actually making some sense, I just want to know. Sometimes it just be talking. I I really don't. I know where I'm going with this, but let's just get in the baby. So I feel like before I can actually get into, like the truth behind the dining plan at UW and need to give you a kind of like backstory of like what? That is, because our dining plan is pretty unique in that sense. Basically, G w. I know of explain. It's another videos, but G W does not have a central dining hall. We have, like one dining hall, and that's on the burn for burn kids. And, like for foggy kids soup, Auggie hits come go then what? But like that's like the main food source for people on the burn who lived anyways. Jamie doesn't have like a central dining hall, in the sense, like many other colleges do, like Iran goes to one dining angle and they eat. It's kind like cafeteria style, but no, that's not you. So instead of that, we have this dining plan called the World. Basically, our Jew world is like a little card. It's basically your student I D card, at least for freshmen. Every semester you get loaded $2300 per year for your meal plan. I want to say like it's kind of like a debit card in that sense, except you can only use your G world card at certain locations that are G W partners. The point of the system is like you're mostly using it for food and for like, school supplies. Sometimes, um, but you're not just using you like a difficult you're not going shopping with your aunt like that's the point. By that being said, we do have a lot of gov partners around D. C and around the area. I don't know the exact number behind how many partners are but I know they're definitely just know that there are a lot. Okay, So, basically, you can use your G world, swipe it at any of these places, and you're basically paying for your food That way, some of the restaurants we have here are like Panera, which is one of my favorites. We have this really good poke a place down in District Hall off. Oh, that's another thing we do have, like many hubs of like, food replaces in the basement of District House was like an unofficial dining hall because we have, like, Chick fil A, um, this place called Soul, this Greek restaurant, Um, let's poke a place and a pizza place. But all in that area that people generally buy from and that's like were people like study, eat, have, like, organ meetings all that. So there's that. That's like, I guess that's the closest thing you can kind of equate to like a Jew. You dining hall out by Explain that Well, if I didn't let me know, and I'll explain it further and like a description of the comments or something, So first I don't want to go into, like some of the good things about dying plants with good things about the world. And that is pretty much you can eat whenever are not wherever you like, whenever you want. And like within, like certain locations, because I feel like with an actual dining hall, they have certain hours. But with this dining plan, the only constrained hours you have, like the actual business hours of, like these restaurants and stuff, which can be a both the good and bad thing because some of the restaurants do close kind of early for being in a city like a lot of restaurants closed around like nine, which for if you're a student, is kind of early. Well, not for me, because, like, that's what time but for a lot of students at G w like they're still studying doing work. Then we'd like to get food or like a little snack in between their study sessions. So that is a little early, but we do also have a few places that have, like extended hours like I know the Starbucks underneath. Our library has extended hours, which is kind of different from like a regular Starbucks, like they close at midnight and they open up really early, like I think, 5 30 There also are some really good options on campus. Like the places I eat most often are probably Pinera. This new Japanese restaurant was not new, but like Japanese restaurant down the street from my whole thatjust like search accepting the world. So you get sushi on Jiro like real sushi, Not like the cheap sushi like really sushi underworld. And also this poke a place which is in district shut up to them if you're watching another, like I guess is sort of a good thing. But it kind of features you had a budget because you do have I don't want to say only, but I must say only because this is G W. We do only have $2300 a semester, which is about 14 weeks, and by the Matthew get about, like, $19 per day to spend on food, which does sound like a lot like it does sound like a lot, but I'll get into that later of why it's actually not that much money to be spending your budgeting. Yeah, teachers. You like some good budgeting strategies for, like, the real world or whatever. This also goes hand in hand because we do have a few grocery stores, you meaning like to grocery stores on the world. We have Whole Foods and Safeway even like paying attention to elect the options that we have here. You probably starting to realize what some of the main problems are with zero. And with that, I guess it was sort of like transition into the bad. And the first thing about that is that a lot of options here are very expensive. That's because one it's like D. C. And everything's really expensive here and to like a Jew road kind of like jacks up the prices a little bit. I know I mentioned earlier that you have about $19 per day, like when one of your meals, like, say, like your breakfast or lunch or something is around like $10 at least actually, at least around like $10 of They're kind of like, really struggling like stay on budget unless you go grocery shopping implant had playing your meals. I'll give you example. Let's say you go to Panera, right like say, you want like a sandwich a drink and I don't know you're feeling a little snack or she get like, a cookie or something to that's like 10 to $12 at least. So then you're stuck with, like, $7 like the rest of your day. But a lot of especially the healthier options on campus, are very, very expensive, like sweet greens this week. Our sweet green. Sorry, my old sweet green there sounds like 12 $13. I don't know how people do it. I don't know if, like the salad is all you're eating the day, but like another thing I'm not too happy about is, while we do have a lot of options of food, places Tiu, we don't have a lot of right. We have, like, maybe like four or five different, like half a style foods. We have two or three places that have pizza. We have quite a few options for seafood. They're all sort of like the same kinds of food, like we don't have any like full meals like you could get like a meal. A chick fil a bowl like That's not what I mean, like a full meal that you can eat and feel like satisfied for so you can kind of, like, justify paying the high price because you're gonna feel full and you're not gonna wanna eat for like, the rest of the day. Everything sort of like a sandwich or like a soup or something like that, Like breakfast Breakfast is really good example, because I'm really big breakfast person. There aren't that many breakfast options on campus like you're either getting a breakfast sandwich or you're getting a curse on you like a bagel or something that'll have me, like solid breakfast food to eat like day to day. So, like what I do is I basically kind of eat like Gov. Delhi every day and get those sandwiches in my alternate that like a parfait or something. Uh um, Panera GHB can have, like a diner and have that underworld not even like a sit down dinner like that would be nice, like diner ish type of food that you can get to go that could, like have, like reasonable prices can, like, have the same prices of look the rest of the food here. Maybe even like a little bit more, since it's like actual, like food that would sustain you but having that option would be nice. So yes, that is my piece. That is the bat. Now. I kind of want to give, like, some solutions or like some I don't know, I don't know, something like ad. So I'm not just complaining one thing that I could see as a kind of like I've said this before in the video. But one thing I kind of see sort of help. Some of these problems is cooking and grocery shopping. If your grocery shopping sort of like in bulk or not Sicilian buck like for like a week or two in advance and meal prepping. But it's a good way toe. Preserve your world in to make sure you're well fed, also, like I said, adding, like a diner like some more like filling options here. Like I said, in the beginning of you, we do have a ton and ton of great options, and we have a lot of good food here, just like the variety, and switching things up would be nice. Also, this one thing that I was thinking, I'm not really sure this would be possible or like a Bible. It all but like possibly switching up the restaurants and district like every couple of years. I'm honestly not sure I like the contracts or things like that really work either cycling the restaurants in district like every couple of years, or like having more pop ups because I know they did have a few public's last semester. We're like different restaurants around D. C would come in and accept the road for like that one day. Honestly, every time you go down the district, you see something and that's something that I like. And just seeing, like some new food options on there got me very excited, especially especially when they have, like, bubble tea down their bubble tea on Jiro. Good bubble tea on Jiro like I have come for tea come the district. Another thing I'm not really too sure about is making options little bit cheaper. Like I said, I'm not really sure how that would work or if that is possible. But like lowering the price is just even like a little bit would be great. Yeah, Before this video gets too long, I'm going to end it off right here. Guys, I hope you enjoyed help. No one got like offended, really, but hurt or anything? Like I said before, this is just like my opinion on Debbie dining. But it's something that I didn't say. It resonated with you or like you completely disagree with me. Let me know Donna Kamen's blow. Both opinions are completely fine if you're near the channel but definitely hit that subscribe button to become a roommate.

Right now, you already know, like the video town post notifications and all that. But make sure if you haven't already toe follow me on Instagram and on Twitter Emergency and at our underscore r e w B r ob to keep up with me and to see some fire pictures on my instagram and some crazy thing Not crazy early, that interesting like some crazy things on Twitter that's gonna be it. Guys, Thank you so much for watching. I've been emergency and I'll see you guys next cycle it. I forgot to do this. girl's stories about creepy guys in college are true. And for guys don't be creeps. Well, hey, didn't see there. Oh, you're looking for a freshman advice video. Okay, that's coming up next. I just I'm just hear everything right now. Uh, I'm editing my friends Music Video. My friend Will Barnett. She hasn't a single creature comfort. And I think it's out now, actually, and you can find it in the link in the description below In comments that room he sent you, but, uh, yeah, sorry. Sorry. Let's get on with the video. My dad and you Take your time. Hey, guys, what's up? Its emergency. Welcome back to my channel. I hope you enjoy the little insurance thing. Yeah, you should actually check up on me to be as pretty. But today is a continuation off our little back to school, Siri's. And today I'm going to be talking you guys about home. You know what the first week of college is really like? Because you guys want to know. I mean, I think you guys want to know. I mean, I actually got an instagram would you like to see? And that's was most popular, but you should follow me on Instagram so you could participate. Except maybe yes. We're gonna be talking about the first week of college, the arguably most hitter mess period of time in college. This video is more geared towards incoming freshmen. But, I mean, if your transfer student or if you're an upperclassman and just up college amnesia and don't remember what the first week was like, stick around and let's go down memory lane. So as I said, the first week is a pretty hit or miss time. You can. You have a really great time where you can have, like, a a pretty bad time. But don't let that scare you, because the first week of something that most people never forget at least I haven't forgotten my pursuit. There are three to protect emotions you are guaranteed to feel in your first week, and that is a state of confusion, state of feeling lost and just being surprised. And that is for a variety of reasons, but most because you're going to be in a new environment. But you gladly never been in before, and you'll be meeting a ton of different people with a very small supports a SIM behind you. I know it's something serious, but don't be afraid, because that is very normal. That's a normal experience. A lot of people, almost everybody feels those emotions and everyone's going through it with you. So just know that you're not alone. Some people just hide it better than others, and that is like a life tip. So in order to talk about what the first week is really like, I need to break it down into four four sections. So let's get into the 1st 1 So the first thing you need know about first week is that you're going to be experiencing a lot of what I like to call first week bigness and again, not a bad thing. It's just what happens. What this means is that there is a lot of in genuineness going on, and what that means is everyone's in like a heightened version of themselves. So there's like, very extra. So instead of being like, Hey, what's up? I'm like, Hey, what's up? I'm really like that because the bull for a lot of people during the first week, it's make as many friends as possible and to not be on loan so everyone's gonna be super extras. Everyone's gonna be super friendly mask on different lunch dates. They're gonna ask you to go to different events. Worried things, First week, activities, classes, everything. Don't want to be alone during your first week. So you're gonna always be with someone for the most part, which causes, like, those freshmen packs. But there are a lot of things about, you know, like where there's, like a bunch of freshmen just all walking in one direction together that happened in high school. It's gonna happen again in college because, like in high school, no one wants to be alone. And you should definitely take up everyone on this offer because you need friends, too, and it's a nice way to get yourself out there. You could possibly find a good friend or you can find some decent first week, threatens to kick it with ditch eventually never talked to again because that happens to first week. Friends were re alive. Said this in multiple videos before, But first league friends are real. You will meet these people and think you're besties with them for a solid seven days, maybe even a month a month was like pushing it. But then after that, you're never gonna talk to them again. You'll see them and I go, Hey, what's up? What's up? There's gonna remind you of a time where you're weak and loss and confuse. And here's a black who Don't talk to me. Please don't wanna go back there. So all this fakeness generally slows down by at the latest the first month. Once the first month is over, people kind of find their people in our as outgoing as they once were, because they're not necessarily as outgoing in real life anyway, much of what it means. People stop keeping the doors open as long and just sort of go back to their home life and stop trying to feed him for other people's get. That's That's how it is you want. You want the truth. There it is. Moving on to the second thing is classes would be honest. The first week of classes should not be difficult. It should not be hard. It is just introductions because professors know that a lot of people added drop classes during this time, so we're not gonna get into super heavy material unless you're in like a super high level class going into your first year, which, if you do, could see you. But you kind of your urine for for the most part, it's just intro getting to know who you are or if you're in a lecture hall, not getting a noble you are and just going over the syllabus. And then it's just doing simple review to just buy time until they have an actual set classless after add drop is over, so you should not be stressing about this. But if you're anything like me and just like the stress for no reason you're going to stress about anyway, I think it's the end of the world and will spend all of your time just trying to study for the review stuff, thinking that there's gonna be a test or a quisling. It's really just like the easiest thing ever, and you're just wasting your first week. Yeah, stop through that, Okay, it's not worth it. First week is still of this weekend, so this week should be easy. So that being said, you're gonna see a lot of people pop in and pop out of your glasses because it is that drop time. So it's okay to, like, kind of conversation. Just kick it with some people. But don't get too attached to people until after I drop is over, because you could find your best friend the first day and then find out they're not in your class anymore. And then you have no way to contact them because he only got toe like Hi. Hello. How are you in your first class? So either full of seven, that friendship during your first class or just accept that you'll never see them again and just make some friends. One class actually starts, but know that really matters if you can't get the class, which is something that a lot struggle with, and that is something that I struggled during the first week is getting the class and finding out where my classes actually are, because whether you have a small campus or a big campus, be destruction, funny little schedule or never helpful enough because they say, like the 1st 3 letters of your building and then like the room number, like how? How is that helpful to me? I don't know what monitor 1 16 is okay. So in times like this, the best thing to do is actually to reach out to an upperclassman or someone who looks like they know what they're doing. I know, I know. I know this may be intimidating. You may be like, Oh, why would I talk to number glasses? But like, it's fine. It's not like high school. When you're in college, everyone is practically an adult, unless you make it obvious. Lecture every class. Men are generally really helpful towards first years because everyone's been through the same experience and everyone wants to help out. For the most part, of course, that's not like a law sentenced anything you will still come across in the brig. Classman That hurt especially stink. But that will be a very rare case if that happened to you. First time I am sorry. That thing on the third thing is parties, and you know, that's the fun part. That's what everyone wants to know. I have never actually talked about partying on one channel forces. First time I'm actually doing this, so let's get into it. You guys want the truth. I'll give you the truth parties. So the first week of first couple of weeks of school is a prime time party season. That's when all the back to school functions happen. You have your little door parties, especially if you're a freshman. Go crazy your first week, but always end up getting shut down. For whatever reason you have your frat party is all the crap brochure to get a piece of the fresh meat. Sorry, that was and then you have your school organized parties, which are more like, for the most part because they're kind of not to anyone. Swap with. They're not as entertaining. You want more of a PG setting, then you're in the right place. But if you want some more entertainment, then you wanna go to dormant properties not saying that you shouldn't go toe like the school or gonna ask things because those were good for pre merchant, just free food. Yeah, preferred that to I'd say that regardless of your party first or not, you're going to end up in a party for some kind of function during your first week. And if you say like, no, I'm not gonna do that. I am a child of God, but just relax. Even if you're not a party person, I recommend that you go to at least one your first week or not your first year because you never known to you try and it's a good way to make friends like you make a lot of friends and parties, and you don't always need to be doing the unwholesome stuff either. You could just be there, a chilling for the most part because you're the only of all someone there. No one's gonna really remember you did anything or not. So that's just the tea. You are one of those parties chorizo. You're a guarantee. During your first week to see that freshman, you'll either know that freshman or you'll deed that freshman. And that freshman is the person who goes a little bit too hard there. First week. There isn't just one that freshman there are multiple that freshman, because colleges big. A lot of people make mistakes, but just don't be that freshman. Just don't do it. Another word of advice. This is more like a warning, but if you guys to go to parties, girls go with friends. Be careful. Be alert because there are creeps up there. This story's about creepy. Guys in college are true. I always go with multiple friends. Don't be alone. Stay alert enough so you can have good judgment of where you are and what you're doing. And if not, have someone around you that is alert enough to make sure you're safe and for guys don't be creeps. Respect a woman's boundaries. If she's not into you, she's not into you, period. Parent with that TSA over. Let's not catch a case our first week, huh? Moving hard is your room. So for a lot of people, your first week of college is gonna be your first week actually living with other people. But aren't your family, that's all. It's gonna be an experience. For one. You're going to have roommates boom and not be online ones either. The real life flesh and blood, tons of emotions, tons of problems. Roommates for me, I was in a quiet and it felt weird my first night sleeping with three other people in the room. Just because I've never done that before. Generally overall, the first week is pretty good because, like I said in the beginning of the video, a lot before. So on their heightened sense himself, they're not going to really show all their ugly side yet because everyone is an ugly side. Let's just be honest. Everyone has an ugly side. It's just whether you wanna show it or not is the thing. And during the first week now people want to show their ugly X. I have really found their friends to deal with the ugly it so first week should be fine. You're just going to learn people sleeping and living patterns. Just gonna be interesting to find out your roommate snores. You're gonna find out, Houston, Or because your roommates will tell you you're also gonna really feel that sense of independence because no one's gonna be telling you to come home every night so you could be out literally 5 a.m. every night and come back, get two hours sleep and get up to your A M. If you want to, like you could do that. But the responsibility really kicks in the first week, and you're gonna feel that responsibility almost immediately. Well, maybe not immediately, but after the first a couple of days you'll start feeling it. The next thing you're definitely gonna see during your first week is a ton of student organizations stuff. There's probably likely going to be like a workfare something along those lines where you could get a whole bunch of free stuff for emerge from different organizations. And I say Go to those So you can one figure out what works there on campus and to get free gym in study merch because you never really know how fast you go through clothes. And just having a random shirt from like, the kind of club toe wear out is a lifesaver. So just climb all the free market you can as almost there just like shirts and stuff you can get like one bottle, one pop socket from like one place you don't need, like 50 of those in the file component to what the first week of college is really like is the food. So I got a D. W. If you didn't know that before and we have a kind of different form of meal plan, we don't have like a general cafeteria. We have basically the equivalent to a debit card, like a campus debit card that we use a different restaurants around campus and that first week the food is hidden so hard. Can we just take a moment of silence for how many taste buds are going to be rocked the first week? Thank you. Food will be delicious that first week, and I'm not so sure about how it is for a like general Cafeteria. But I'm pretty sure the food is pretty good the first week because the cafeteria people wanna impress because parents are still around and want to make sure that what they're paying for is being used effectively. So, yeah, that first big it's gonna be. But after that again, speaking for what you have used student perspective, you're gonna get tired of that food so quickly so quickly I'm gonna be a sophomore. I don't understand. People who are seniors deal with that because I'm already like, not looking forward to it because I am tired of the food complete First world problem. I know you did. With that, you should be prepared to take on your first week of college. At least. I hope so. Thank you guys. So much for watching. You can do this. You know that.

And then after we finish making the bed and put in the battle of organizing all that, we started on the closet. So me and my dad started putting clothes up in my section of the closet.

Here's our small little bathroom now headed to the living room. You got my friend Lenny here. I'm gonna interview her in a second. Now our goal in my room, You know, I got the best. So here's my unmade bed. California represent FC Barcelona, our stayed abroad. And my favorite part about this room is what I really love this dresser. But I also love the you Hey, guys, what's up? Its emergency and welcome back to my channel. This video has been highly anticipated for pretty much all of my new viewers out there. So I asked you guys last week and I wear my going to college video. If you would like to know more about my college survival book that I mentioned and the overwhelming response was yes. So here we are conditioned my college survival book. I'm also gonna be finally revealing my stats and all of my academic stuff that you guys want to know and have been asking about, or basically the past two weeks. So I'm gonna jump into the stats portion first. It's over. Those of you care. And if you don't, you can skip ahead to when I talk about my college survival book. I'm gonna be going into my statistics Frye school, which basically consists of my grades, my G p A mind test scores and oh, and by the way, I'm missing thing or unclear in any way by anything. Be sure to leave a comment down below asking, and I'll be happy to clarify, unless it's just weird that I won't answer. So when I submitted my comment after my colleges I submitted to GPS. That's because I transferred to another high school my sophomore year. That's when I pretty much moved. So for my freshman and sophomore year, my first school, my g p A. It was a 3.99 My grades for both those years were pretty much all A's and a minuses except for math and maybe a science class because you're alone is really quickly. Matt is my least favorite subject and the subject that I sure most men so that those of the classes where I got the B pluses, bees and B minuses but like I've never gotten a seer blow on my transcript at all during high school, which I'm personally proud of. Also, those 1st 2 years I was thinking all honors courses because eighties weren't available until Junior. But I moved junior year, so I didn't get taking AP classes, and the current school that go to now doesn't have a piece. So I've never taken an AP class in my life that sideways to my junior and senior year. So the GP, that ex image of colleges for my current school was a 3.44 out of four. Like it's important to know it's gonna go to now. It's really hard to get a four point now. I forget like the specific numbers. But in the past few years, like five or six, I think I'm like, overestimating that probably closer to five people. I've gotten a 4.0, also, I'm not so sure about, like the whole g p A thing because of my new school. They didn't account for my patch GPS. Oh my g p A. When I first started, school was at a zero, decided to build my G p a up again. So I'm not so sure how my GP it would be if I was like at this school for all four years. Great that many school are pretty much bees and bees. Bees again homely and math and science because those glasses are hard and I want to be a bio major. As faras course logo's on my current school, I've been taking primarily economic classes. Actually, this time I doubled up in math. Last year, I doubled up in history and, like I said before, my current school doesn't do a PS because every class is said to be taught at like an AP level Test scores. I'm a horrible test taker. I decided to take the A C T. So my highest composite A C T score was 27. It wasn't great, but at the same time it wasn't terrible. I went toe like test prep and everything. I'm just an inherently bad soon, says Sinker. I think I took the test like three times, and the A City superstore for that would have got me up to a 28. But the break down of my highest scores were my highest English score was a 30 I as a NASCAR was 25. Highest reading score was 28 my sign score was 8 30 If anyone cares, my writing score wasn't eight out of I don't know. I also took a pee test, My junior, even though my school doesn't have a P classes, I took AP psych AP bio AP U S history. I think that might be it, and I got three out of five for pretty much all of them. So again, not what I wanted, but at the same time, not bad. But insanity P scores. My college is up because I didn't feel like it represented me well as an applicant. And I think that's everything, as faras statistics go. So I think it's time for me to show you guys my college survival book. So the whole point of making a college around what is to write down stuff so you don't forget anything about the schools you visit? I have a recommend making one of these books here, junior looking at colleges. Or if you're just like one of those weird 10 or 11 year olds, that's like, really invested in colleges at this time. If that's, you know, shape, you're ahead of the game, you do you. So basically, I've had this notebook since, like the end of my junior year. I bought it because I originally wanted to keep it for like, as a deep wrapped in SNC like writing stuff like literally the 1st 2 painters, like a safety strategy information. But what about college visits in the summer? I basically transform the notebook into the college survival guide that it is today. I'm not sure you can see this or like how well you can see this because camera focus here. You know this all up in your face. I could. So I basically ages. Hey, notes on colleges that I visited because I had a lot this summer. Basically the goal Having a boat like this is to write stuff down so you don't forget it when you're trying to, like, narrow down your college search and like when he actually applying to colleges, You guys, in my experience, thanks to this and thanks to the videos that I made on the college is the goal was just to remember everything so I wouldn't forget things I liked about a school that I really want to write about in the supplement and things that I didn't like that would cause me not to apply. You can definitely tell how much I was interested in this world by the amount I wrote in the book like Here's George Washington stuff all over here hose So I could be used little section reach college. In my book, I'd write little sections like the first section I have would be called textbook info, which is basically everything you can find out from the college pamphlets that they hand out also wrote down some of their interesting majors. Like for most of the schools was biology or a school like molecular biology as like a specified major? I'd be sure to note that down and also I'm not sure if the supplies everybody but for me, diversity was a huge part in my college church process. Rated on the efforts that the school was making to promote diversity. The current never be at the school and what the current student body makeup is. Also, make sure you know, like the Bible School because you know everyone trying to say they cheated to find a school that has the right it. So it's very much writing down the Bible's that out from the school to determine that bit. I also wrote down my first impressions of the school because first impressions are everything. It's pretty much your opinion you have when you first set foot on campus, and it's usually your truest opinion of the school. And finally, I write down an interesting fact about school. This would basically just be for my reference when I'm thinking back to colleges because after a while, college shorts kind of blend together And you think that some things from one school or another school when they're really not just try to write something that would differentiate them, something that really stuck out to me about school. So I want one through what makes a car special, mate. When I'm writing about them in my supplements, I could be as descriptive and clear as possible while China events to take pictures of the pages in this book and share them out to you guys. You guys could get a physical example, but I wrote, Yeah, that's all the information I have for you guys today. I think this may be one of the last college and vice see videos I make for the next, like a week and 1/2 because all I've been doing for, like, the past three weeks next week For those who have been here for a while, I think I might be going on another adventure with Willis. I don't know what we're gonna be doing. We might do a trendy food eventually, Part two, Let me know now in the Commons, if you like to see that video or something else entirely.

Guys, we got this smash that like button hit that's described. But in a tournament post invocations, he never missing up. Let me go anyways. Let's get into the actual video because that's what you guys came here for. I'm gonna be laying down some college advice for students who are applying to college right now. I'm here to give you some advice before, during and after after, like before and during your college application process. My first piece of advice for those you are applying to college is to choose a school. If you haven't already that you would like to apply E D, too. I don't like time is like drug going down, because I know a lot of like E D. Application dates are like November 1st, November 15 old that, like get your stuff and a highly highly, highly recommend. If you have a top choice, like have a school that you'd rather go to A supposed like your other options who apply e D. Because at least for my like applicant pool, you're a lot of schools filled up the class size with, like E D applicants. So you really have, like, a top school, especially if it's like ivy or like somewhere. That's like our reach school that you really, really want to go to. And I highly recommend applying because one it happens. Your chances to help, like three decisions like you can get accepted, rejected your deferred. And if you are deferred, that means you, like still have a chance at like R D. I'm a big advocate for Edie. I personally did not apply e d e A. Because I didn't really see the value in it. And I didn't really have, like, a top school at the time, up until, like the E d date had passed. Think of it this way. If you get in in December, you're done in a similar vein when you're applying to colleges and you're like trying to decide, like where you actually want to apply one quality. But I highly recommend is considering your options and seeing which college has like a location that were like the college isn't the main focus, Alex. Say it in a different way. I recommend finding a college where, like your college, isn't like the main focal point off. Like the city, there's act like some cities that are run by the college. That is definitely a college town, and there's nothing wrong with that. As long as like there's things going on, like outside of like college. I know it's what she'd like. Some schools like when, like a fall break or like a winter break happens and like a lot of people leave like the city shuts down, it's dead. It's like completely dead because campus is dead, which means that the city is that and personally like I don't really buy about that. A lot of people don't, and it's like you're one of those people. Then I highly recommend fighting like a city that, like is independent, not necessarily independent. Black can run on its own like there's things like Do in the city when you're not in school were not in classes G W in D. C. At a really good relationship, like they're kind of like integrated with each other. But when school is over, like football break. But you're still a ton of things to do in the city like you could go to the monuments. You can go to a whole bunch of different events because there are events happening literally every day in this city. Well, I just recommend, like you do some research intellect, the cities that your schools are in and seeing whether, like, things are actually going on. My third piece of advice is that before you actually like, apply to college, do some soul searching and find out how hard you actually want to work in college. What do you mean? This is like figure out if you want school would be like your number one thing like the only thing you do because they're definitely schools that, like, do that if you want, like, more of, like a balanced lifestyle like you work, sometimes you like, have fun. Sometimes you like socialize sometimes like more of like a holistic approach to college, where it's like, not as stressful or not as like, academically focused. That's not the same. Like to apply like a school. It's That's not gonna challenge you. I'm not saying that I'm saying, like school challenge you, but at the same time, they give you time in space like do other things like school is like the only thing you're doing looks like of schools like the only thing you're doing. It's super, super easy to get burned out and you don't want to get burnt out coal, Trust me. My fourth piece of advice is that when you're applying to schools, especially if you're like in like a science, he feels or like in a field that is like up and coming, like not a lot of schools are like really into that field. Do some research on schools and figure out like which schools are actually up and coming in that field because a lot of people don't realize this. But it doesn't really matter the state of your program when you go in like for me, Like the bio programming G W. Was like up incoming delegates. I wouldn't said it's the best, but it's like improving. It doesn't really matter what it is right now. What matters is where, like the program is when you graduate, because when you graduate, that's gonna like associate you with, like, career wise. Like if you're applying for, like, jobs, they're not going. Oh, yeah, George Washington wasn't really that created by, like four years ago, but it is not like you can really come here like it matters like where they are now. So, like think ahead of the game, don't like, think where it is now. So like if you are in like a stem field and applying to like a school that isn't like, huge and stand out. But they're putting a ton and tons of money and effort into building up that program they don't like necessarily come about school out. Apply my fifth and final piece of advice for you college applicants is reach out to students that are attending the school is you want to go to. I know this may seem like scary or daunting, but like if you have like a friend or like even someone who graduated from your school that goes to a school like you're interested in, make contact with them and ask them, like what? Their experiences, especially for doing something similar to what you want to be doing because they could either, eh? Beer mentor? Or do you just give you like the scoop on Wants it down like What's going on campus like what things are really like on Cape is because you never really know what's going on on campus unless you like Ted into the school. And I remember this was so helpful when I was applying to colleges, I would reach out to people who are attending schools that I was interested in, and they basically give me, like information on things I wouldn't be told to me, like through tours like from like the admissions office, like serious things like what student like this actually like. What the administration at your school are at the school is actually like. So I have a combined like even if, Like you don't know someone who, like, go to a certain school, I'm sure, like our friend, or like someone online does so just have conversations and, like, see, like how they like the school. But if you are, like a similar path, career wise or like major wise that ask them what that's like Because the last thing you want to do is let go in completely blind. Might be like, blindsided by, like allow school actually sucks like I don't like it here. Yeah, those are all the tips I have for you guys today.

I've been emergency and I'll see you guys next time. You definitely shouldn't go into college singing that you remains gonna like, Do you dirty like that's gonna, like take for me when you're not there, Blake. Sometimes it happens. Hey, guys, it's emergency. Welcome back to my channel. So today we're talking about college as per usual, but it's a little different, you see. So today we're gonna be talking about rooming in college and not just ruining my the whole sort of housing experience, Sort of. I'm trying to be, like, super elusive and mysterious, but it's not really working, and you could probably just like Real Title is anyway and just figure out what's going on video. But anyway, let's let's just ignore that. I'm sorry, but in particular I'm going to be talking about how to survive in basically any college dorm. And I know it's a really big test because college dorms were like, really different and like there's a lot of different opponents that goes in like the culture and environment, for each dormitory is up with doormen. Short board. This is why I don't have a degree yet. I also feel like I'm like, super qualified to be talking about this because I'm going to be in a hurry next year, right? I crazy, but I actually haven't been trained yet and I don't know how to do it. Let's just forget about that. I've lived in a dorm for years. Let's just assume that I know what I'm talking about. Let's get another video. So I feel like in order to survive in like your residents all you just need the abide by a couple of things to make sure your time there is a seamless and as comfortable as it can be because, as I said before, I know that door most can range from a variety of different levels quality and just cleanliness. And just I'm just gonna say it. Some of them could be really freaking growth. That's like no shade toe like, actually, is it like specifically what I'm talking about? Like different dorms like especially like big universities, if you like, we have the money to really make up like a good dorm, all like they just don't because of just like different time restraints. I feel like there's a valuable character developing moment by living and like a shoddy dorm hall for a year, because you learn how to just really live on the edge. You know, when there's mold all over the bathroom. There's really thin walls here. Everything there may or may not be rodents in the building. There's just something you get from that that you don't get anywhere else. And of course I'm speaking from experience, So if I could do it, you can definitely do it. And I know just saying that if you've never been to college before that, maybe some little scary little daunting like why would I want to do that? I'm paying all that money, but you need to understand, like that's just part of the character. The first thing I'd say that is really essential to helping you survive in a dorm hall is getting to know the back of the work. There means arias are basically resin advisors. I know a lot of these positions have different name is spinning on the university campus. It's on. But like arias, which are basically the student advisers, like they watch over other students on the floor of the generally upperclassmen, the R D's who are the step above that which generally grad students already is short for like resident director by the way, and then a sees, which is like area coordinator, which are like the super fancy, amazing people that oversee all of that. So get to know them because they probably know more about the building. Then you can take a little bit about the history, like the culture of the building, what works, what doesn't work. So they're all great resource is to use just to help you be more informed. And they're also the people that you can go to whenever things go wrong. Would that be about the building itself, where the people in it So getting to know that only makes you experience a little bit easier because you know that you have someone to count on or someone to help you out. If things go very, very self, additionally, want to get to know the different facilities workers so that people that are actually coming in like fixing different things that you w where I go, our people are called fix it and like they come in the fix stuff, as the name implies, just knowing what they dio and knowing how to contact them in case like your refrigerator breaks or like your ceiling falls down like that doesn't happen. Almost ever help. But like, if it does, you know who to go. So, yeah, just knowing people who can help you out isn't never a bad thing and conduct one of your bitch. The second tip that can help you like your residential adventures, our master in the art of money. You're in business now. I say this in the most serious way possible, but a lot of the time, if you're living in a residential space for a lot of different people are going to see a lot of different things. Those things may be positive. Negative, weird, creepy. But for the most part, you need to realize that you're only in control of yourself. So you're distracting away staying in your own lane, minding your own business, then a lot of that weird, crazy, creepy stuff may not happen to you, or it may just, like be in the background. You want to keep it in back because you don't want it to come back to you, especially when it comes to drama. Because if you look for dummy will find drama in college trusting that So how does one master the art of minding your own business? I'll give you some examples. You're walking around your dorm, hauling. You see people arguing in the hallway, your own business. You see a couple looking up in the lunch room. Find into the laundry room. Just mind your own business. You see someone narrow time running around the whole way that when you could take out your phone record it. But afterwards, your own business. You see the theme here. Whatever's coming at, you just gotta turn your head. Mind your own business, and that's something you should be a good Samaritan and not like reports of the things you see if they're like, dangerous or like, I'm weird to like our A or something. But I'm just saying you don't need to involve yourself in that because that's a lot of energy in April. We have a lot of other things going on in your life that taught involved all of whatever that was, so he's gotta keep it moving. Next thing that you should know is that you should figure out what our peak times for different utilities in your building, like the laundry or like you have communal bathrooms, showers or the toilet because they're definitely are certain times where everyone is doing laundry. Everyone showering. So if you want to avoid the huge line of people just waiting to do the same thing, try and find times when people aren't necessarily in their door. I thought last year at the best time to do laundry are directly in the middle of the day, so you have, like a break in between classes in the middle of the deck. Do under them because people are in class is just like hanging out and then also late at night on the weekends. So if you're not going out partying her sleeping, do your laundry because everyone else's doing those things. So the laundry room and shower will be very, very empty, although I'd say for showers. Be careful. Big people have little accident moments in the showers over weekends, so just watch your next thing sort of transitions into the sort of roommate section of things because unless you're in a single, you can't really talk about housing talking about remains. So I definitely said that you wanna have a good time in a decent relationship with your roommate that you make a roommate agreement. Really? I know a lot of schools require you to make a roommate agreement with your roommates, but if they don't, I'd say that you should definitely make one because they are life savers. And I don't. That may sound like roommate agreement. That sounds I don't know if I need that. He might remain a romance are pretty close. That group that way never betray each other. We're down for each other. That's my ride or die. But they're gonna fix you up at one time or another. They're going to do something that really irks you, or they're gonna like pushup battery that there really shouldn't have pushed at some point. So setting up a roommate agreement in the beginning sort of alleviates some of that pressure and anger and frustration and ever made agreement doesn't need to be something that, like to perhaps you're you're into anything. It's just like guidelines. This stuff, what is like acceptable and what is not sort of like saying those batteries. So if you don't like guests in your room after a certain time because you like to study or sleep then say that it's something like that does happen. You have, like, physical evidence and, like physical, something visible. The show, like we have agreed that that's not okay, So what are you doing? And also make sure that everything that you're putting in agreement is very clear. So there isn't, like much discrepancy. 11 We way that we could go on, Mike. I know everyone should find a loophole was convenient to them like I did that I'm not gonna lie. Making the agreements clear, but also not super demanding were like limiting. Because you're going to change is a person of your college career in some things that you thought that you wouldn't do or be interested in. You may change your mind and actually end up wanting to do some of those things which may or may not be in conflict of your roommate agreement because you thought you'd be a different person when you went to college. But then college up in here like whoa, Yeah. Being clear, concise, but also like, realistic and reasonable. That makes sense. Last thing under mitts that's gonna make your life so much easier. It's like a little shady, but like whatever. Make yourself a little stash of things that are essentially you. That means, like toilet paper's snacks, different facial products, basically anything that could be shareable that you don't necessarily want to share. But people will take advantage of it. I want you to share anyway. You definitely shouldn't go in the college singing that you remains gonna like you dirty like that's gonna, like take from you when you're not there. But like sometimes it happens. Sometimes you're feeling a little hungry and there's nothing in the room except for those cheeses that your mate has. And I mean, you gotta eat. So if you don't want that happening, you've been created stash of things that are really important to you and that you'd liketo use at your own pace and not have, like, stolen or like, taken for eaten from you just like hide him away in, like, a suitcase or a drawer or something, where it's like, not easily accessible. I felt like I just need to be said I'm sorry. The next step, the surviving your dorm is sort of like a psychological thing, and that is to sort of change the way you think about your dorm. Where's our good dorms of bad dorms? If you're in, like, a really good dorm, this is really apply to you because you already have, like, this superiority complex that you living in the best storm and you're like driving in your environment. But for those of you who are like me and got one of the worst storms on campus, you sort of need to, like, reevaluate how you think about things, because hard time is really easy to tack that on to things that are sort of like counted against you. I know how first world that sounds, but like it's real for some people. For me. My first year, I live in their skin hall, which is known to be like the worst dorm at UW. And just hearing that every time you tell somewhere you live like oh, yeah, I live in very soon like, Whoa, you first. I was crazy and curious. People like, No, it's okay. We mean dirty, dirty, dirty. So you yourself don't constantly think of your dorm is like a really bad dormer. Just think of it as a dorm or like ideas in dorm like a good door, then that could really change your attitude in perspective on where you're living and can make your experience a lot better. So for those of you living in some crusty dorms, just reevaluate yourself and sort of going along with that a lot of times in order to survive in your dorm, we also need to get out of your dorm. I know it sounds like a little counterintuitive, but like it makes sense, like sometimes, no matter how much positive talk you do, there's always gonna be something or someone that really just, like, irks you in the dorm, where you just physically can't be in there for, like a certain period of time. I need to get outside of your door, and this is where making friends outside of your door keep. So I have something like that does happen and you need to get out your door. You go into your friend's doorman here. With that makes, you can get a change in scenery and new perspective in all of that good stuff and a lot of the time. Spending time of another friend's dorm will make you appreciate your dorm even more because the culture and layout of every building is different and is a new experience. He may find some things that you're building extra does better than your friend's building my laughs. It was kind of separate from every other point that is bringing some sort of bug killing instrument substance device. Oh, just bring something to kill bugs. I'm just inserting this in here for anyone who doesn't like bugs because me and bugs do not get along. And last year there were many incidents where bugs were a problem, except for this one time where a spider must have, like, laid eggs in our bathroom like they're a bunch of baby spiders everywhere. But, you know, so I got chills just remembering it, but in that case called Fix It and they came in like sprayed, killed everything. But I got something that extreme would happen in Europe. But in the event that it does and you don't have, like a fixit person or like a roommate that just isn't afraid of bugs, bring some bug spray, some bug traps just to keep yourself safe, so you don't have to really worry about that. That's something that applies to you with all that, you should be good to just go move in and start killing at your dorm. Thank you so much for watching this video.
