With turkey day fast approaching there are a few things to be done to ensure a good Thanksgiving
What to do for a successful freshman Thanksgiving:
5. If #4 didn't apply because you were savvy enough to not try the long distance thing Call high school (now ex) girlfriend(s) ask them how they are doing and what they've been up to wait 15 minutes while girl spills her heart out tell her that you've been having a really great time at college and you really enjoyed talking to her make date for when you get back to your hometown.
6. Pack your shit say goodbyes to college friends fly/drive home
7. If with long distance girlfriend, get past awkward finally-talking-in-person-after-talking-on-the-phone-for-the-last-couple-months -stage and hook up. If you do this quickly you will be able to stay in denial together and carry over your long distance relationship until Christmas break. Speed is important because if you don't move to the hooking up you will have to sit down and talk in person. This will entail realizing that you are developing into two very different people and that your relationship will not work because the girl you hook up with at college is way more like you (especially if your g/f is still in high school). Now after you hook up you will feel guilty about #11
9. After gathering of friends, hook up with ex or take ex out and then hook up you really shouldn't have to do much work your ex has just been 'liberated' by college and needs a self esteem boost after getting hazed by her sorority sisters and being a piece of meat for the frat boys.
10. Try to spend some time with your parents and tell them you love them. Even if you are the worst child ever your parents still love and miss you. Hopefully you mean it but if it isn't you should do this step just because they paid for your lazy ass in high school and they are now paying for your tuition, food and rent. Savor this state of financial freedom.
a. She's cheating on you
b. She's going to cheat on you
c. She won't cheat on you because she doesn't drink alcohol or is ugly. you're definitely already cheating on her so just do her a favor and break it off.
12. Say goodbye to high school friends don't worry you'll see them at Christmas in like 2 weeks
