So here I am, entering to what we called the stacks, and this is where you can come to find library books that you look up online. So on the library's website, you're able to search up in books that you need, and they'll give you the information that you need in order to find it.

Hey, guys, welcome to my YouTube channel. So today I want to talk about something that's actually really important. And it's basically 10 things that I wish I knew before coming to Howard or just going to college in dinner. So I hope you guys enjoy. All right, So the first thing that I wish I knew Waas set reminders. And to have an agenda like things would be so much easier if I had just planned out my days accordingly knew exactly doing because nobody else has the same schedules. You you may have to go to class and then go take care of something in another building at a building. And so nobody's gonna remind you. The only thing that will remind you is when you set reminders you. Oh yeah, I had to go there, but just always make sure to write down what you have to do, and you'll be on top of your stuff. Number two. Do you like? Don't be afraid to just do you do things by yourself like it's fine to go to the CAF by yourself, even though it's embarrassing to even one's kind of like, I don't want to eat alone. If you can't find anyone to go with, like if you've asked all around and exercise all your options, then you just gotta go. And it's fine because if you walk to the CAF A. Someone would be like, Oh, where you going? And then if you say you're going to the CAF and they also want to go, they'll come with you or you might see somebody in the CAF and you might see your friends in there. It's not the end of the world. You do it and you leave. It's just part of life or you can eat in the cut. You know, don't be in the middle eating. Just go in the corner Being Loki, be by yourself sometimes. It's fine. I've got to get my eyebrows done by my son off. Got my nails fixed by myself When you go to college. It just it doesn't matter when you spend some days by yourself like it's okay. Sometimes you need to be alone. Just do your own thing and not need people holding you back. And then, you know people will start. Wanted to get stuff done with you. Year on your dish and doing stuff. Three. If you have one or two classes one day, you don't need to bring every single thing that you own. Like you're not gonna go back to your room because then your baggage is heavy. Just lugging this big bag around. It's like for why. Trust me, Howard, when you're doing all those all those walks, it's just you want to have as little weight on you as possible. So you'll see. You will see office hours, literally office hours. The reason that I got a four point of the semester is because I knew all my teachers if I was struggling, I came to them that this is the issue, you know, right here. This is where you don't just kidding. When you're coming to their office hours and they start learning who you are writing your name, they'll like you more. And when it comes time to put your grade in, they're gonna be like, Oh, I remember her. She's working hard. Just get to know your teachers. It's like it's, um it's like that should have been number one. Get to know your teachers and go to office hours, and they will help you out. They will. And I'm not just saying that because when I watched the videos, I'd be like, Okay, office hours. No, you need to go. So I always know how you're getting back from a party. Like, don't be stranded. Don't understand. That happened to me. If you guys want to hear that story, I'll make another video about it, because that's a long story. But I was stranded, actually got stranded twice, So I'll tell both in another video, but, um just, like, have uber plan have a ride back If you have a ride back, like a Plan B. Like, Okay, I'm probably gonna need to call an uber because this person is to turn to, so, no, I'm gonna get back. You don't have to pop out every single day for class. Like I know everybody thinks Oh, Howard, the fashion show stuff. But you know, if you don't wanna pop out every day, don't like, just make sure you look nice and presentable, but this isn't the most bomb offered in the world. But I would wear this to class just cause it's Jill. It's cute. And, you know, I feel good just wear whatever makes you feel good. Don't look at what other people are wearing. Compare yourself honestly. At the end of day, you're just going to watch a lecture and then maybe on the yard. You know, if you're wearing a cute outfit, go ahead, pop out, but don't feel pressure toe always be looking good. No, look good. But don't look, Pop Dr 100% all the time. Do whatever makes you happy. Super important when you're applying for internships and you wanna you want a really impressive internship over the summer. Make sure you apply for that and November and in the fall, because all the cool under trip that's when the deadline's on The big companies they want already secure their interns for the summer back in the fall. And so when you wanna cool, fall under chip, we gotta apply in this summer. So you just gotta plan months in advance What? Where you wanna work? Because that's when people are looking for interns. I really wish that I had mapped out from freshman year two separatist senior. This what I'm gonna do? This is what I'm gonna join like and have all these little set up not saying I don't wanna say Just be like mindful on B Be clever. And Martin was your decisions of the things that you join because that can benefit you, help you or hurt you in the future. Tips to leave you guys with in the at night walking groups. Find a good church home. Don't leave church at home just because you're leaving You know there's church everywhere, so it's just a good thing to have when you're going through stress and a lot of changes in your life. Just make sure you have got that utilize the library study lounges. You don't always have to study your room, and sometimes that can, like make it worse because you just always in your room like it gives you Jeff, to leave you and your room. You do not have to be best friends or go everywhere together. You guys just live together. So you know you don't wanna be the best of friends.
