That is weirdly specific to me, but we’re flowing with it!
Hey everyone! Welcome or welcome back to my blog!
So, it’s been a while since I did one of these posts, hasn’t it? But I was literally doing a college assignment (Yes, this person a.k.a me who literally has the mental age of six is now in college, just in case you missed it in my monthly wrap up and the dozens of other posts I mentioned it in. Whew, that was a long sentence). Anyway, I was doing a college assignment, and after ages, literal ages, I got a mildly creative idea, and I knew I had to write it down immediately! So, a 500 word essay on smartphones has been put aside and I am now going to write a word limit-less essay on the Types of People You Meet in the First Two Weeks of College.
- The First Glance Friends: The ones you know you’ll be friends with at the first glance.
Okay, you’ve probably heard of love at first sight, but I’ll tell you that’s overrated (and unrealistic), but I’ll also tell you what’s underrated- Friendship at first sight! I don’t know about you but I judge people at the first sight and sometimes I get immaculate vibes from people and I look at them and I’m like- you might be cool, and thus, you might become my friend, and thus I shath talk to you! I have just had like one person who I was like this with, but hopefully there shall be more!
- The Orientationers: The ones you meet during orientation
Until now, the majority of my friends, like close ones from college, are the ones I met in orientation. I don’t know if they like, like me (Big surprise: I overthink and think about all the weird things I do and then realise that oh, people probably don’t like me), but they at least pretend to, and I like them, so it’s been working out great thus far. Here’s to hoping they stay friends with me for the next four years🥂
- The I-Know-You-But-I-Don’t: The ones whose faces you remember but not the name, or vice versa
I suck at remembering both. Like, people literally introduce themselves and if they aren’t interesting enough, or if I don’t have to work with them for a project, I will forget them. I have two brain cells and if I spend one and a half of them remembering people’s names, I’ll be doomed.
- The Socialites: The ones with so much social energy that they sometimes make me wonder if there’s something wrong with me
Oh. My. God. You guys, one of my friends from college is so social, that she already knows every other person. Okay, that may be an exaggeration, but it seems true. And I am in literal awe, because if I spent so much time talking to people I would die. Of exhaustion.
- The ‘Stay-Away-From-Me’ Vibers: Me.
Okay, so, look. I have made friends with people. I have at least 5 people I can call friends, and they won’t be like, who? me? And that is a huge thing for me. So, now, I have officially started giving out “Stay Away From Me” vibes. I like me a peaceful life, and if I become friends with more people, I know I won’t be able to give time to the people I am already friends with, and I’d rather have less friends who I know will be there than many who I know are superficial. Hence, I have started giving out ‘Stay Away From Me’ vibes.
Apparently, those make me scary and intimidating. But people 👏still👏don’t👏stay👏away👏
- The Leeches: The ones who stick to you like leeches (Duh, I had to mention an animal)
Oh God, I hate these people. These people stick to you like they have nowhere else to be and no one else to be with. There’s this one guy who’s like the impersonation of a leech. Towards me at least. And I am tired of sending out the previously mentioned vibes. I have literally kind of insulted him (on accident, I am not mean- like the insult came out subconsciously) and he still won’t go away. People who have been to college- I need advice on how to push people away- 17 years of pushing people away did NOT prepare me for this.
- The Helpful Seniors: It means exactly that
Okay, so. I literally have zero idea on what to say here, because the title says it all. Seniors are genuinely very helpful in our college, and there’s no ragging and stuff which is a good thing, because I am not made for violence. Ooooh, I made friends with a senior, who wasn’t like you know, supposed to be our friend- like during orientation, there were two seniors who were supposed to guide us and stuff, I made a friend outside of that, and I am proud. She even said hi to me when she saw me in the cafeteria. I am so happy. I know you probably don’t even care.
- The Friend of a Friend: Again, it means exactly that
So, my social circle has increased because I now know people who are friends of friends and thus sit on the same table and thus are forced to talk to me and thus are now friends with me.
- The ‘You seem smart’ Kind: And then proceeds to ask you for an assignment
Okay, so, I am smart. Enough. And I unwillingly show it when professors ask stuff (Class participation has marks and I like looking good in front of professors- A curse and a boon), and people notice that. And then they’re like, huh, this person is smart. And then whenever there’s like a quiz and stuff, they’re like, hey can you sit next to me. I am not kidding, I literally entered the class on the day of a quiz and ten different people asked me if I would sit next to them. I am also not bragging, I am just kind of tired of stuff like this, and I just kind of want to rant without seeing the other person judge me. Like you might be judging me, but at least I won’t see you do it.
- The Pop Twin: You are a Swiftie? Me tooo!
Okay, so see the thing is that I have met a- you guessed it- Swiftie!! She isn’t as intense as I am, but she still loves TS, and that’s what’s important. I have also met One Direction stans and Harry Styles stans, so yesss, I have met pop twins! I haven’t met a Why Don’t We stan yet though, and that is a pity.
- The Odd Romantics: The ones who somehow are already dating
Yes, two weeks, barely two weeks, and people are asking each other out, and people haven’t said yes yet, but it’s a matter of time and people will say yes, and meanwhile I’ll enjoy the drama that will definitely come along. This also brings me to another topic.
- The Dramatics: The ones who have SO. MUCH. DRAMA.
I genuinely feel bad for these people sometimes because they have so much drama, and I don’t know how they deal with it, because I genuinely wouldn’t be able to.
- The Overeager Smartasses:
These are the kind of people you’ll know if you have one in your class, not if they are just in your social circles. These people are very smart but at the same time kind of annoying, because they don’t let you speak! I have had a cough for the past week or so, so I haven’t ben able to put these people in their place either. It hurt :((
- The Ambivert: The ones who are an extrovert with their friends but an introvert otherwise
I feel like a lot of people, including me, are ambiverts in college. Like, no one in college makes an effort to talk to you or like goes out of their way to do that either, unless you are a friend so yeah.
- The Memories: The ones you know you’ll always remember
I mean, I have made core memories of my college experience, so I know that I’ll remember the people I’ve made friends with now, even if I end up not being friends with them at the end of four years for some dramatic traumatic reason.
And those were 15 types of people I met in the first two weeks of college! Did you guys meet such people too? Let me know in the comments!
