    Expectation: The cafeteria food will be nourishing to my body like something out of a Daniel Fast.

    Reality: “Yes, I’ll take one slice of pizza, one cheeseburger, one bowl of pho and a half dozen soft-serve ice cream cones with sprinkles, please, and thank you!”

     

     

    Expectation: My roommate and I will go together like Jesus and his disciples.

    Reality: “Your banana peel is on my half of the room.”

     

     

    Expectation: The required chapel time will speak to my soul and change me as a person.

    Reality: “I’m sorry, did you say 8 a.m.?”

     

     

    Expectation: All of the intellectual face-to-face conversations will improve my communication skills.

    Reality: Haven’t seen anyone but my Instagram friends in four days.

     

     

    Expectation: My summer job money will pay for fun activities all semester.

    Reality: “I’m sorry, I can’t afford to go to the Dollar Theater today because I spent my last bit of cash on Top Ramen.”

     

     

    Expectation: I pay to go to college here, so I will find a parking spot.

    Reality: “Dear Lord, hear me in my desperation. Please have mercy on my soul and help me find a spot within a two-mile radius of my English class.”

     

     

    Expectation: I’m going to meet MFH (my future husband) by the end of my first semester.

    Reality: 16 billion coffee dates later…

     

     

    Expectation: I am going to meet all of my new best friends!

    Reality: I met all of my new best friends!

     

    Ladies, can you relate? Did we miss any?
