Reply Cassie A says: May 21, 2014 at 12:00 am What if you have confrontational anxiety for meeting new people? That's my struggle Reply Patricia Espana says: May 29, 2014 at 4:17 pm As a college freshman, I already have 31 units. If I spare 2 hours of studying for every units I have, that'll leave me with no sleep for the whole year 🙁 Reply Shivani D says: June 3, 2014 at 6:28 am you're such an airhead… Reply Shayna Waltower says: June 6, 2014 at 2:12 am Hey, Ally, in one of your previous college videos, you mentioned that group studying is a good way to bounce off ideas from each other, but in this video, you say it's a no-no. Just wondering if there was any difference. Thanks!! Reply Melinda F says: June 18, 2014 at 7:26 pm thanks so much for the video Ally! This was one of the more helpful videos i've watched and if you have any more to add, a year later now.. we would love to see a follow up video 🙂 Reply sharonv153 says: June 25, 2014 at 9:09 am Thank you do much this will be very usefull for me 😉 Reply Rina Berman says: June 28, 2014 at 5:23 pm I figured I was the only one who made some of these mistakes (eg overeating, GETTING HELP was the main one) It's equal parts relief and terror for my next few years Reply Crystal Chizoba says: July 3, 2014 at 3:42 am Awesome video and your winged liner is on point!

My family and friends keep doing the "WOW, college next year, huh? Kinda scary!" Or "Are you nervous?" thing, and I feel like I should be but I'm not.. idk, maybe it'll be different as it gets closer.

Reply Domino_Emery says: August 24, 2014 at 7:21 pm #9: I would use the library copy. I would stay in the library and finish projects/homework/study because if I am at home, I can't focus, I need a classroom type setting.#11:Don't get over loaded on classes. I made the mistake of taking full units so I was focused on two classes but not the other. So, it may take longer but, stay a part time student. It'll be easier. Reply xmollycx says: August 25, 2014 at 6:32 pm totally made some of hese mistakes myself ha! uni is sooo different to high school and its a major leap Reply libutn gjonbalaj says: August 25, 2014 at 10:51 pm What did you major in ?

Because we learn calculus in highschool here in Europe Reply Aura Misq says: September 2, 2014 at 9:43 pm Today (Tuesday) was my first day of college, I literally missed all my classes for the day because I went to my Monday classes thinking it was Monday. It was so embarrassing people looked at me weird. But tomorrow is a new day and God is with me 24/7 so I'm learning to be comfortable around people. 😀 Reply Jefferson PS says: September 6, 2014 at 6:48 pm good, i wish i have good friends in my new college Reply Rora Rora says: September 19, 2014 at 3:14 am High school is easy??wtf then why am i strugling on my senior year Reply Araragi Koyomi says: September 20, 2014 at 2:37 am 8 hours of studying a week is absolutely nothing when you're an engineering student.

Reply Tomás Nobre says: August 14, 2015 at 12:25 am youre so sweet. THX for the tips 😉 Reply Charlene Jo says: August 16, 2015 at 5:28 pm None of these applied to me. I went to a community college right after high school and transferred to a university so I never stayed in a dorm and I take mostly online classes so I rarely get to meet people on campus. I commute from home (still live at home with my parents) so I don't have the need to come home every weekend or stay at a college or whatever. I study all the time. I kind of have to because I am working full time also so by the time I get off work and come home, I have no time to hang out or have free minutes to myself. I start studying as soon as I finish dinner and now I'm going to have fit in time to exercise. Reply 애니 says: August 18, 2015 at 12:11 am You blink so much that it's kind of distracting and hard to concentrate on what you're saying :c Reply jazlyn james says: August 18, 2015 at 4:23 pm You're teeth are so white!

Back When I Was A 7th Grader, I Used To Have A Lot Of Friends Yea Like I'm Super Friendly/Talkative/Fun Person But Then Maturity And Anxiety Hit Me Like A Truck, I Suddenly Feel Awkward Talking With Someone And I'm Always Thinking If They Like Me Or Not Also My Fun Side Suddenly Gone Like A Bubble. I'm Such A Super Shy Person Right Now Like I Can't Even Talk To My Past Friends And It's Very Awkward And Now I'm All Alone Which Makes Me Sad 😔 Reply PapaOhh says: July 4, 2016 at 5:11 am Ahh another quarter system person!!! What college do you attend? Reply Kait says: July 18, 2016 at 3:02 am Group studying is actually REALLY effective, but she is right when she talks about group studying with friends. If you're gonna group study, it should be with classmates that you only know from that class. In that situation, there's pretty much only one possible topic to discuss, and that's the class material. I've also found that group studying with friends can be effective if you bring headphones. That way you're more focused on your music and your studying, and it becomes inconvenient to talk to others. You end up taking the headphones off only to ask or answer a question from whoever you're studying with. My biggest mistake freshman year (2015-2016) was getting too close to one person. We were pretty cool with each other at first, but she didn't know basic technology manners (as in, she would be eating with people and scrolling through her Tumblr dash) and she preferred to stay inside her box. (That last one was a problem because I'm a Gryffindor, and trying new things is hella fun for me.) I should've gotten closer with more people in the clubs I was in instead.

Lapinski says: October 26, 2016 at 7:15 am I have had the exact problems this last quarter (freshman in Uni) I'm super motivated now though! I want to be good I love my studies. Thank you for the tips 🙂 Reply Destiny Dimension says: November 29, 2016 at 2:56 am Is it me, or does Ally look so much better 3 years ago than now? Just saying, I'm a newbie, but not a fan of makeup. Too unnatural, it turns me off.
