What Not to Wear and College Student Etiquette:

First of all, High School is over, if you brought your Letterman Jacket for the winter or you’re still wearing you High School Ring…TAKE THEM BACK HOME NEXT TIME YOU VISIT YOUR PARENTS.  Leave them in your parents’ house, and don’t worry about seeing them again until your 5 or 10 year class reunion.  I know you spent a ton of money on that High School ring, but the only ring you should be worried about now is that Aggie ring. (And for goodness sake, take your Graduation Tassel off your rearview mirror.)

So you’re at a party and you’ve gotten past the where’s your Hometown and what’s your Major icebreakers and you want to brag about yourself…DON’T TALK ABOUT YOUR SAT/ACT SCORES, or WHAT PLACE YOU GRADUATED IN…they’re not that impressive, everyone at A&M had to meet the same requirements to get in and no one cares what you did in High School.

The Freshman 15 is not a myth; in fact I’ve seen the Freshman 50 hit some students.  Remember when you were in High School, in athletics, burning 7,000 plus calories a day, yes you could eat whatever you wanted. Now you sit in class, sit in a computer lab, or sit and play XBOX and you’re not burning anything.  Go to the Rec Center (you’re paying for it) Get a membership at Gold’s, Aggieland Fitness Dome, or Aerofit, they’ve all got great student plans and USE IT.  Remember a healthy body is not only nice to look at, but also helps keep your mind healthy as well.

I know we are in a major drought now, but October and November are Monsoon season for BCS.  Guys get a big golf umbrella and ladies get your little cute rain boots and rain coats, cause one day you’re going to be walking to class in the rain, and it sucks to be soaked to the bone when the Professor is blasting the AC at 64 degrees.

As for going to class, think of your fellow Aggies: just because you can roll out of bed and walk to chemistry in your PJ’s you haven’t washed in a month, it doesn’t mean you should.  Stock up on free t-shirts and if your lucky you won’t have to wash shirts for like 3 weeks.  If you went to a party or the bar the night before and took the walk of shame straight to class, sit on the back row…you still smell like stale beer, cigarettes and bad decisions, also it’s less noticeable for you to run out the door to go puke away your hangover if you’re on the back row.  If you’re really smart you’ll keep a spare outfit in the car and some febreeze or perfume.

You came to Texas A&M to get a world class education, though it won’t always be your main priority, make sure you always keep in mind that is why you are here, and you will finish and you will succeed.

Finally, and in all seriousness: if you ever get in trouble legally, financially or otherwise TELL YOUR PARENTS.  Seriously, they may not bail you out, but don’t try to hide it from them it will always turn out worse for you in the end if you do.

Good Luck,

Thanks and Gig ‘Em!

PSA for the Day: Don’t Buy an iPad from some dudes in the McDonalds Parking Lot!!!!

I really shouldn’t have to tell you not to buy electronics in the parking lot of a fast food chain!!! But if you’re considering it, or think it might be a good idea, read what happened to this woman in South Carolina trying to get a deal:

From MSNBC.com

Woman buys fake, wooden iPad for $180

— A woman at an area McDonald’s thought she was getting an iPad at a bargain price, but instead she got a very expensive piece of wood.

Ashley McDowell, 22, said she was getting food at about 10 p.m. Monday when two men approached her in the parking lot. The men showed McDowell a new iPad, and told her that they had bought several of them in bulk at a good price and had them in FedEx boxes in the trunk of their car.

The men offered to sell McDowell one of the iPads for $300. She told them that she only had $180, and they agreed to sell her one for that amount.

The men gave McDowell a FedEx box. Once at home, she opened it and found a piece of wood painted black with an Apple logo on it.

McDowell said the men were in a white Chevy Impala with no rims and untinted windows. She said one of the men had a gold tooth.

I wonder if she got a splinter trying to slide unlock it?

 Aggie Driving 101: Driving in Aggieland

For those of us that have lived here for at least 3 years, BCS is an easy little community to get around in, but for you Fish, you sometimes make it more difficult than it should be.  You Freshman have had your license for at the most 2 years, and you’re statistically speaking the most accident prone drivers on the road.  To make matters worse, you’re all from different areas of Texas and the World.  So you’ve got kids from DFW and Houston who use the Highway 6 bypass to get anywhere they need to go and they like to run 85 miles an hour, Kids from Waco and San Antonio are like NASCAR drivers they just keep making left handed loops around town, then there are the international students who can’t read the road signs, they’ve never seen a traffic signal or know what turn signals are for, and finally you’ve got Bubba from Pig Knuckle, Arkansas, who’s hometown has 1 flashing red light, if he goes over 35 he can’t see where the cows have busted the barbed wire and got out, plus when there is more than one other car on the road he gets nervous in traffic.  Now You Know why there are at least double the number of  Auto Body repair shops in town than there are textbook stores in our little college community.

Here are some Basic Rules for getting around town.

Rule #1: PUT YOUR @!#$@#@#$@#$$#@ Cellphone Down…Don’t Text, Don’t Call, Don’t Tweet, Don’t FB Stalk the hot girl from class, Don’t play angry birds…NOT EVEN AT STOP LIGHTS.  This is BCS even if you drove from Highway 21 in Bryan, all the way down Texas Avenue to the Wings N More on Deacon inCollege Station, the drive would take you less than 15 minutes, your phone can wait. Just turn up Candy 95 and Drive!!!

Rule #2: If You Are ON or Turning ON to Texas Avenue (Business 6) DON’T TRY TO MAKE AN UNPROTECTED LEFT TURN, wait until you get to an intersection with a traffic light.  This is very important in College Station, you can TRY to turn into the Bed Bath And Beyond center if your northbound on Texas, but you’ll be waiting up to 15 minutes or causing a wreck pulling out in front of someone, when it would’ve been smarter to turn at Holleman, cut across to George Bush and be able to turn right into the lot and get your Panda Express.

Rule #3: Beware of Random Road Name Changes and streets with more than one name….FM 2818 is also known as Harvey Mitchell Parkway, Highway 6 is the East Bypass and the Earl Rudder Freeway, Texas Avenue is Business 6 (and don’t even try to figure out the block numbering system, it has never made sense)  University Drive is also Highway 60 and Raymond Stotzer Parkway (once you cross Wellborn Rd or 2818)  Harvey Road (not to be confused with Harvey Mitchell Parkway) is also Highway 30, and if you’re ever in Bryan Highway 21 is San Jacinto Lane.  As for streets that just randomly change names, Villa Maria branches off and into Briarcrest it’s the big one, but there are at least 5 or 6 more in BCS, you cross the Bypass on Southwest Parkway and it magically becomes Raintree Drive, where 2818 crosses the Bypass in CS it becomes Emerald Parkway for some reason…just be aware, though you didn’t turn you may have just changed roads.

Rule #4: If at all possible: DON’T DRIVE ON GAMEDAYS!!! You just thought the college students were bad drivers and constantly lost in this small little town, wait until their parents show up and clog the roads with their Escalades and Surburbans not knowing where they are, which way to turn or what the speed limit is.  Add in the OLD rich Ag’s in their Maroon Cadillac Sevilles that they’ve been driving to Games in since the car was new in 1962, sprinkle in some visiting fans, and Football GAMEDAYS become the PERFECT STORM OF TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS WAITING TO HAPPEN!!!

Other little things to remember: It should be common sense but in College Station and especially around Campus DON’T SPEED, In School Zones slow down and drop your cell phone, Watch out for Motorcycle and Moped drivers, you have your own protected lane turning onto University Dr from the Bypass DON’T @#$#$ING STOP THERE, Bicyclists will tell you all day they have as much right to the  roads as cars and they will try to flex that muscle but usually end up in the ER or as a hood ornament so watch for them holding up traffic, Don’t run red-lights, now that we’ve voted out red light cameras the FINE for running one is over $400,  and FINALLY NEVER EVER DRINK AND DRIVE!!!

Tomorrow, What NOT to Wear and Basic College Student Etiquette.
