This, it sucked because at first I would like my classes and then one or two would be so difficult or boring that I couldn't pass. But I would keep trying, wasting time, money and effort. I've lost a lot of energy and drive that I can't get back. Putting so much effort in and seeing no reward in return is devastating beyond words.
Having a girlfriend was a horrible choice. I can't emphasize this enough. I met a lot of girls that I never called cause I wanted to stick with my gf, then we broke up. I'm not ugly or anything, but I had girls coming up to me, introducing themselves, handing out their number, etc...that's not an opportunity that I see myself having again.
DON'T GET A RANDOM ROOMMATE. If your family can't afford it, offer to pay the difference yourself. Whoever is least considerate is the most comfortable in the dorms. I got stuck with a minister's son. Enough said.
If I had to do it over, I would have liked to start at community college and gone out of state after. I would have been a little more prepared for the college environment and I'd get a chance to experience something different.
