So today I want to talk about something that's actually really important. It's basically 10 things that I wish I knew before coming to Howard or just going to college in dinner. So the first thing that I wish I knew Waas set reminders. 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. The only thing that will remind you is when you set reminders you. 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. 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. Just go in the corner Being Loki, be by yourself sometimes. It just it doesn't matter when you spend some days by yourself like it's okay. Just do your own thing and not need people holding you back. 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. 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. 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. When it comes time to put your grade in, they're gonna be like, Oh, I remember her. Get to know your teachers and go to office hours, and they will help you out. I'm not just saying that because when I watched the videos, I'd be like, Okay, office hours. So I always know how you're getting back from a party. If you guys want to hear that story, I'll make another video about it, because that's a long story. I was stranded, actually got stranded twice, So I'll tell both in another video 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 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. 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. You know, I feel good just wear whatever makes you feel good. 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. 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. 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?

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.

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.
