13. Taking all of those stupid electives freshman year -  Freshman year was full of terrible plans. There’s that haphazard attempt  at running for class president, the trip you took to see that band  that’s no longer cool, and a lifetime membership to the Greater New  England Erotic Puzzle Club. But out of all the stupid ideas, wasting all  of your electives on your first year of college is the worst. After  all, they’re the only reason you had time to do those other dumb things  in the first place.

8. Wearing That Hat - The only statement you’re making by wearing a newsboy cap around campus  is that you have absolutely no idea what looks good on top of your head.  That, and you noticed your hairline was receding EXTRA! EXTRA!  fast. There isn’t one person, who doesn’t already own a newsboy cap  themselves, that will take a gander at your new gear and say, “Now that  is one dapper individual.” And if they do, it’s because they’re either  making fun of you or one trip to the vintage shop away from making the  same mistake you did. Hats are for keeping heads warm and keeping a lid  on the occasional bad hair day, not ruining social lives.

4. Inviting that Orientation Week friend home for Thanksgiving - When you’re young, three months might seem like a long time to have  known a person. The truth is, you don’t really know someone until they  have had the opportunity to make a complete and total fool of themselves  in front of your family. It doesn’t matter if it’s making eyes at your  younger sister, insulting your racist uncle who definitely had it coming  but agreed to drive you back to school, or leaving your toilet with the  tricky handle in such an unpleasant state that it reduced your mother,  who once worked in an emergency room, to tears, your guest will do  something to ruin the holiday. Something no one in your family will ever  forget or let you live down, even after the friendship is terminated.
