    College is supposed to be the best four years of your life. For the most part, they are. With all those fun new people, reckless abandon, and the power of youth on your side, why wouldn’t they be? Well, because reality bites. Uncle Sam steals all your money and those fun new people can turn out to be pretty effing brutal. (No, this humble author isn’t just projecting his experience into writing.) Hindsight is 20/20, after all, and there are many things we wish we knew going into those “best four years of our lives.” With spring break just around the corner, we polled our office, freelancers, cohorts, lovers, and friends to see what they wish they knew as bright, young, wide-eyed youths. And now we’re giving it to you. Take note, but really, have fun. These are but mere guidelines for living your hashtag best life.
