Dear Meg,

I’m a Freshman at Fairfield and I don’t think my high school study habits are translating to college life.

I’m discovering that I’m spending so much time hanging out with friends that I’m always rushing to get my stuff done. I’m afraid my parents are going to be mad when they see my grades.

Any idea on how to improve my study habits?

Dear Flunking,

It’s too bad that you have terrible study skills. Unfortunately, the ability to study is an inherited trait, or at least I think it is.

Anyway, procrastination isn’t always a bad thing though. All-nighters are such an important part of college life. When you look back on college in 20 years, you aren’t going to remember turning in all those papers on time, you’ll remember all those nights you spent writing papers until 6AM.

Furthermore, I am a huge advocate for coffee. It’s the All-nighters best friend. And life is usually better with a little Netflix in it. Gilmore Girls has only been streaming for a month, you can’t have gotten through all seven seasons. Good luck with everything!

Always keeping it real,
