High Maintenance High School Habits You Need to Break Now
High school is all about being high maintenance if you think about it. Fickle relationships, stress over the SATs and getting into college, packing as many extracurricular activities into a 24-hour day as is super-humanly possible. But once you get into college and have to be responsible for things that actually matter — like finding food and waking yourself up without parental back-up — you have less time for high maintenance frivolities, unless you’ve turned them into dirty little habits that suck up your time and budget.

While personal hygiene should never go unaddressed, there is a time and place for blow drying your hair every morning, getting your nails done, and taking your clothes to the dry cleanr’s. College students are known for being a little sloppy on campus, so feel free to let yourself go a little bit. In high school, people probably cared about which diamond stud earrings you just bought, or which designer jeans you were wearing, but in college, the rules are less stringent. Wear clean clothes every day, brush your hair and your teeth, and get on with it. Showering is also of course necessary, but don’t give yourself a blow-out each morning before an 8:30a.m. class. Your roommate will probably kill you, and you probably need the extra sleep anyway.

Hopefully your hormones are starting to level out a bit more on their own, but also track your high maintenance behavior. High schoolers talk trash behind their friends’ backs, steal boyfriends for petty reasons, and are picky about who they eat lunch with. In college, you have to have an actual reason for making out with someone else’s hook-up buddy (there are no boyfriends and girlfriends in college, by the way), and you’re probably going to have to get used to eating lunch alone between classes anyway. Be nice about splititng up into study groups, and leave all the high school drama behind. You’ll probably notice that your campus is more chilled out than your high school, so the transition from neurotic to flexible shouldn’t be quite so hard. Don’t let yourself go, but don’t waste your time and money on high maintenance behavior and habits that will leave you friendless, bored and anxious.
