My mom was the same way. Only cur eis call everydya for about a month and then hopefully space it out to once every three - four days. Of course I was a 26 hour drive from my parents.
I go back in 15 days.
Tomorrow you move into dorms, tomorrow night you drink, the morning after...well there is no morning....
Point being you better not be no pussy in your dorm. That was serious advice. Dont be the guy who sits at his computer a lot. Even if you are bored or alone, get out of ur room andinto a room of your neighbor, or even better, get every perosn u meet to party in ur room. At the beginnign of the year you gotta fight for the sole title of the "party room" of the floor. I was lucky and we became the party room of the building. These first few weeks are critical in attracting friends and findign which ones are the best for you> Which ones will have your back> Which ones will bend over just to help you. And which ones will help you set up a kiddie pool in your room.....is that just me?
In all honesty I encourage you to join a fraternity. Dont be shy, pick a fe wof your friend sform your floor and go to some rush events. Theya re free and fun and no commitment. Rush a few where you can blatantly see thye arent assholes. Listen to upperclassmen and find out which ones are known as jerks. Even better, listen to upperclass girls because they will tell you truthfully which fraternity is full of pricks or gentlemen.
And dont say "Oh il rush next semester or next year" because you never will, and its somethign you will wish you had done so much earlier.
I forget the fact, but every single president of the US has been in a fraternity, and something liek 75% of Congress is an alumni to a fraternity or sorority.
But the first year kicks ass. You have to be crazy. Wage war on the jerkoff RA's. Wage war ont he buildign. Become legendary. When its 30 degrees and raining out go into the parking lot with a slip and slide. Dont be afraid to do risky or stupid shit. They wont kick you out. Good Luck!
