Laundry and Mental Breakdowns

Laundry and Mental Breakdowns

I don’t know if this is just me, but I have been more stressed about figuring out how to do the trivial, everyday tasks in college than my classwork! I was very anxious about completing all the ordinary things college students navigate—the ones I had no way to prepare for.

My first week was filled with thoughts like:“How do I get through the line at the LDC without causing a traffic jam?”

“How do I do my laundry?”

“My OneCard isn’t working and there’s someone waiting on me!”

“I need to print something, but I have no idea how the printers work…”

“I nursing paper writing service left my towel in the bathroom again…”

“Where on Earth is Burton??”

These concerns seem so little, but they were a big part of my coming-to-college-anxiety. Below, I made a list of things I wish I would have known before starting Carleton!

Everyone is worried about similar things, even if they don’t say so!Once I started meeting others, I bonded with a lot of people over struggling with “the little stuff.” We helped each other figure things out, and are still surviving!

Everyone at Carleton is extremely kind and willing to help.At first it was super intimidating for me to ask the worker at Sayles a question about Dining Dollars or my OneCard; I constantly felt like I was going to ask something wrong. However, every single person I’ve spoken to has been more than happy to help me out and ask my questions, however ignorant they might seem.

Reach Out!Another action that really helped me was writing emails. Every person I have reached out to has been glad to help me figure everything from textbook costs to club sports. It’s also a really easy way to get to know staff and your future professors!

It’s also good to know…That if you’re directionally challenged like me, try finding your way to classrooms earlier than five minutes before class starts. To help with navigation, we have an awesome app called “CARLS,” which gives addresses for all the buildings around Carleton (not to mention building hours and dining options).

Laundry is free! As long as there are machines open, doing it is a breeze (except for the regular amount of annoying).

Communal bathrooms are not as scary as you think! (Yes, even during a pandemic!)

If you are an introvert, avoid going to the Language and Dining Center (LDC) at 12:00 and 6:30 at all costs!

Upperclassmen don’t hate you as much as they want you to believe! Carleton is a super welcoming community—everyone is kind, open, and yes, the rumors are true, quirky.

Above all else, don’t forget to enjoy yourself and explore Carleton’s beautiful campus.

Erin grew up catching salamanders, recklessly climbing trees, and running around barefoot in the Appalachian Mountains in a small town in North Carolina. This is her first year at Carleton, and she’s looking forward to meeting new people, exploring campus (especially the arb!), and experiencing her first Minnesota winter. She is currently interested in studying psychology and gender, women’s, and sexuality studies. Meet the other bloggers!
