"Omg look at her. Does she know this is college and not grade five?"
"Jacqueline, it's not nice to make fun of others considering your outift would have been way worse"
"Yeah, yeah. Jeez, look at him. Nerd alert."
"Fine, I will stop. But look everyone is checking you out."
"Checking US out".
"Yeah, I hear ya. So I have only three classes today. Yipee! Econs 101, Finance 101 and Management 101. I should be done by 3pm. Let's meet up at the coffee shop and then head home."
"Well I will be done by 4pm so you are going to have to wait. Just stick around and socialize. I don't want you taking the bus home".
"Yes mum. But gosh socializing, that seems hard".
"You will be fine. Well I gotta go, have fun sis".
"Yup school fun" I say sarcastically.
I start heading towards to the classrooms and of course with my perfect luck, I get lost. No knight in shining armor to save me though so I end up getting there twenty minutes late. What a great start!
Finally it's my last class of the day and soon I will get a good dose of the best medicine, sleep. Thinking about this, I accidentally bump into this girl. She falls but I don't. Oops.
Note to self: Not a good idea to start daydreaming of sleep while walking.
"Are you alright?" I ask
"Perfectly fine on the ground. Thanks for asking" she says as she struggles to get up.
I don't help her up. Hey! don't judge me. I didn't ask her to wear those heels and who knows she might pull me down as revenge? It's a possibility.
"Okay then. Bye." I say as I start to leave.
I ain't got no time to mingle. I'm an aspiring accountant for Pete's sake. Luckily I get to my management class on time and sit down in the middle seats. I don't say hi to the people beside me.
..2 mins later..
Omg this class is so boring. He's just explaining the basics, I mean I already know this stuff. So I start doodling random things on my notebook. The guy beside me snickers when he sees me write "You got the best of both worlds" and some other lines from the theme song of Hannah Montana. Unfortunately for him, the teacher hears
"You over there, is this class a joke to you?"
"No sir. I was just laughing at what this lovely lady beside me wrote".
I sit there shocked with eyes and mouth wide open. He did NOT just snitch on me. Is this the third grade?
"Miss, would you please read out what's on your notebook?"
"Do I have to?" I say with a high pitched voice
"Yes, you do or you leave my class. I do not expect any form of distraction in my class"
"Fine" I say with dejection
I stand up and say
"This class scares and excites me. I can't wait to leave this college and change the world with my accounting skills"
Yeah like I was going to say the truth.
"Sir, that's not what she wrote there. I can read it out if you want."
Second time, I am shocked today. Did my enemies send this boy to me? I always knew that Ashley from the tenth grade was coming back for me for slapping her. In my defence, she called me childish.
"That wouldn't be necessary" I say
"No, now I am intrigued. Mr-" he says while pointing at my wonderful seat mate
"Yes. Mr Davison, read that out."
The Mr Davison or rather My new nemesis snatches the book from my hands and starts actually singing the lyrics. The whole class laughs, obviously, and even the teacher starts chuckling.
"Thank you Mr Davison. You may sit down. Miss Montana, you see me after class."
"Sir, its Miss Miller."
"Alright I hear you, Miss Montana".
I bury my head in my book as the entire class erupts in laughter. Yup, this is a great first day.
As soon as the class is over, I gather all my things and bolt out of the class but not before "accidentally" stepping on the foot of my mortal enemy. I head to the coffee shop which is also on the campus and find a seat at one of the extreme corners. I hear a few whispers of "Miss Montana" from different directions. Greaatttt. I buy some jelly filled doughnuts and lay my head on the table so I could sleep better. With my nemesis and the girl I bumped into, I had had enough socialization for a day.
Barely into my sleep, someone is shaking me and whispering "Miss Montana, the audience is ready for you. I would have punched this person in the face if I hadn't seen the knee high boots below the table.
"Great, so you also heard?" I say to my twin who is smiling goofily at me.
"Of course I did. My friends told me."
"You have friends already? This is just the first day?"
"Well unlike you, I'm good with people"
"Lucky you" I mutter
"Are those doughnuts?"
"Yup. You want some?"
"YES PLEASE" she squeals
I was planning to turn her down but she looked so elated that I decided to give her. See I can be nice too.
I get up to buy a couple more for the ride home in the car we brought to school. And when I come back, what I see gets my blood boiling. The bane of my existence is FLIRTING with my sister and she's actually giggling. I would have thought that the fact that we looked alike apart from our hair and eye color would discourage him since he apparently hates me. Okay, maybe I am being over dramatic. I storm over there and say while glaring at him
"Sis, let's go. I have a headache, thanks to some people, and so I need to sleep"
"Oh I am sure that you need your BEAUTY sleep for obvious reasons and also for your concerts" he says
My sister actually GIGGLES. That was so mean of him. I gape at her
"Oh come on, it was just a joke" she says
"Yes it was just a joke, Miss Montana. I understand life on the road is tough but chill out." he says
Ughh what's the matter with this boy? I'm so angry but I can't cause a scene here after all the trouble I had today and I have no drink to pour on him. So I do the most logical thing I could think of. I take a doughnut and throw it at him. Okay that had no effect except for a little sugar getting on him. I drag my sister and the remaining doughnuts and storm out of the shop with my sister laughing quietly behind me.
Question: What do I think of college?
