It’s been quite some time since I’ve attended college. Amazingly over a decade. But not a day goes by that I don’t think about the freedom, the ladies, the good times, and the life that I shall never, ever lead again. It’s the only time in life that I think I’ll think about for the rest of my life at some point each day.
With that said, I was thinking about how little you actually needed at college. What a great thing that you really just needed yourself on a night out and you were pretty much set. However, as a male, there are five things I do think you need at all times in college.
Here they are…..
A bottle opener
Never in my life have I felt that owning a bottle opener on my key chain was less cool than now, but back in college it was awesome. Hell even in high school you were respected if you could open a bottle at any time of day (as long as you had your keys). Funny how nowadays I’m actually jealous of bottle opener key chain people because I know that their lives are probably more fun than mine.
I didn’t say a ton of cash. I just said cash. Given the amount of free drink specials and what not, you can probably get by on 20-30 bucks on a given night. However, it still looks good if you can buy a girl a drink. Even if it means drawing a cup from a pitcher you just spent five bucks on.
You’d be surprised how many dumbasses leave their places without keys. This may be an obvious one but it’s the truth. Just make sure that if you get lucky enough to coerce a girl to come back to your room that you can actually get into your room.
Yes, that kind of protection. Don’t be a fool, wrap your tool.
A Smart Phone
It’s funny because I’m an old school guy that’s very anti technology from a communication standpoint. I don’t like the whole smart phone era (despite having one). But if there’s one time a smart phone is awesome, it’s college. Never before could you start a relationship or have a sex prospect simply by having a Facebook account and using text messages. It makes that whole scene way way easier, and you don’t even have to approach girls in bars anymore. Pretty awesome if you ask me.
