The Summit needs to stop alarming its residents
After having lived in the Summit for ten weeks now, I can safely say that there are things that I have grown to love about the place, but there are also some things that drive me mad sometimes. One of the most annoying and frustrating things that I’ve come to despise about living at the Summit are the fire alarms.

Don’t get burned by junk food, cook for yourself
Before I came to college, I had always taken for granted just how good home-cooked meals were. I sometimes preferred fast food just because of how uncommon it was for my family to have it. Now that’s not to say that the food my family cooked at home was not delicious; I just wasn’t as enthusiastic about it because of how frequently I had it.

Read a book: a novel idea
Reading for pleasure has become somewhat of a novelty nowadays, and part of the reason for this is the myriad of other forms of entertainment that have come to exist. Of course it would be incorrect to say that nobody reads for pleasure anymore, but the amount of people who still do on a regular basis has definitely declined over the years and this is especially the case in some of the younger generations.

Reflecting on freshman year
Entering college life, I was rather pessimistic about the whole idea because of the fact that I’d been homeschooled for all of my educational life. I had never been to any kind of public, private or any other type of school, but I did start going to community college at fifteen years old as an early college start student. As an early college start student, I was only allowed to take two classes per term, which wasn’t too difficult, but I was heavily occupied with studying for the PSAT and SAT, as well as other subjects that I was studying at home.
