So I now have a slightly different question. Should I dress up my first day to make a good impression, then go barefoot? Or should I just keep going barefoot until it gets too cold for it? See, I'm majoring in music education, and networking, especially with former professors, is important in landing a job. I want to be careful.

I graduated. I wasn't enrolled in any school, but I'm now starting college.

 

that comment was in reply to corrin, who said that she would go barefoot if she changed schools.

when i was in college, people used to joke about how you knew someone was a freshman if they were dressed up for class.  i suspect that the professors are used to seeing any and all kinds of dressing down, especially in a more artsy major like music.

well, that settles it. If I feel like it that day, I'll go barefoot.

I have thought it over some, and have come up with a way to take it slowly. I'll start by taking barefoot walks in the nearby park whenever I have a while between classes, then when I start to get acquainted with people, then I can invite them to join me, and then gradually start attending classes barefoot.

Don't let it be a distraction to you, Barefootconservative. College is hard enough without too many distractions. :)

i'd say that the distractions are the whole point of college.  that classroom shit is the easiest thing you'll ever have to do, but the life lessons most people experience during their time outside of class are priceless.

^ i meant anything and everything that happens outside of actual college classes.  college is a completely different world from high school for most people, and there's nearly infinite fun and learning to be had as long as you actually get out and experience it.
