School Supplies are Critical to making Friends

Today is officially my first day of being registered as a college freshman. Again.
At 9:30 AM I am required to be in attendance at Full Sail for orientation. This will be the first time I've actually had to be awake before 10:00 in about 2 months.

Horrid life I lead, I realize.

This whole going back to school thing got me thinking about the first time around, and how exactly I met all the people I hung out with. The majority of my friendships were instigated by living in the dorms with all the same people year in and year out. We'd leave our doors open, invite each other to the C Store as we walked down the hall, borrow movies frequently, and generally just hang out with anybody and everybody, at least once. It was so ... easy.

Full Sail, however, has no dorms, and not much of a campus to speak of. It's basically 4 buildings.
Since I'm now going to be commuting to school, the only chance I'll have to befriend my classmates will be actually during class. Considering a large portion of the students will be straight out of high school, I've got a pretty good idea of how my interactions with these youngin's will go.

I guess I could just drift through school without actually making any friends ... but I think I'll give it a shot anyway so I have some people around should I need to pull a Dead Man on Campus.

Is that supposed to look like the box? and is the guy throwin up supposed to look like ross?

D Wheezy said...

Yeah, pretty much.

Red walls + beer pong + vomiting = the BOX

The guy in the background, however, is not really supposed to look like Ross. He's got more of a Zak Morris vibe going methinks.

yeah i guess the zach morris hair. but the blue collar shirt and green shorts and sandals. im sure you know as well as me that ross only owns 9 articles of clothing and 2 of them are in the comic.

Wheezy !

I like the new layout ! Have you had it long? I usually read your posts on Google Reader, thus have missed the pretty layout.

Ah, I've had it around since a little after Christmas I think. It's basically just one of the Blogger templates with that banner I made.

Thanks for noticing!

I just discovered your blog. I like it. Especially the thought controlled wheel chair.

As for the guy in this comic, tt can't be ross because ross doesn't throw up until morning.

D Wheezy said...

Just to be fair, if it were Ross he'd either be still drinking at that point in the evening or asleep / passed out / passing out on a piece of furniture/appliance/region of the landscaping.

Which, admittedly is better than urinating in any of those areas. Except maybe the landscape.
