think the hardest part of adjusting to college is and I’m also going to go through the Q&A questions that you guys left on my Instagram page if you don’t follow me on instagram you need to go follow me follow me at joy way to underscore and you can ask me questions I always respond to y’all’s DMS and we can you know be friends so I know that you guys are gonna ask about the hair if you didn’t see some of my last video so this is this is clip in extensions and I will have the video I did on these hello so let’s get into the T the thing that I think is the most difficult part of adjusting to college is is making friends so I don’t know I just remember in high school I think junior year of high school was when I had a solid friend group it was four of us and we literally did anything we wanted to do together it was a reliable group so like I think we were going to go get food who would just be like hey let’s go here and then we would all go I know it’s really easy and didn’t have to do with anyone else etc etc so I feel like in college especially if you go to a really good school in a city like everyone is always busy everyone always doing things working on things reviewing schoolwork we’re going outside project and so it’s hard to coordinate when you can meet up with people when you can actually do things other than like you know go do homework together so I feel like making friends has been like really hard for me like especially going into like past freshman year where you kind of like live with all your friends as you like to become upperclassmen you start moving off campus you don’t move away from your friends and if you don’t live near friends or your friends go study abroad you’re like cool I’m gonna hang out with who I’m gonna hang out with so what I’ve been doing is I’ve been just asking people to hang out whether or not they say yes or no at least I’m trying I’m getting better at that but I feel like it could get discouraging if you’re like asking someone hey let’s hang out and then they’re busy they ask no there isn’t hey let’s hang out then they’re busy then you’re like I’m not better keep asking people to hang out so I feel like I’m searching for that like solid friend group now that I had like when I was in high school I had one freshman year but we kind of dispersed and we kinda don’t see each other now because we don’t all live in the same place like we did last year so I am on this search but yeah if you go to USC or you live in LA or go to another LA school let’s connect if you crazy let’s not connect but um yeah so I am open to making friends at USC it’s just like it’s a process and I need to you know understand that so if you’re in college and you had a point where you’re like I don’t know what my friend group is let me know below so I know you can relate and also leave any tips for other people who are in college or in high school or looking to like you know learn how to make friends you can leave that for them so let’s get into the Q&A okay let’s get into the Q&A so I posted this Q&A like six weeks ago I just never got around to it this is supposed to be February’s Q&A well my first question is from an e dot Omalu I’m starting colleges law and I just wanted to know if you have any tips on adjusting to college life joining clubs choosing courses etc so I’ll just focus on the choosing courses cuz I have talked about clubs and a lot of videos so I say for courses make sure that you schedule classes early plan them out early usually the schedule of classes is posted well before you get to schedule your classes so like at USC the classes were posted in March and for the Fall so for August so you have time to like you know get your schedule together and all that stuff I literally can’t stop touching my hair because I feel so brand new Nia BFO finish out Nia if you don’t subscribe to her channel you got a subscribe omnium on e so what’s your ultimate life goals so my ultimate life goals is to live a life of happiness where I can travel experience new things where I can be an entrepreneur and not have to work for anyone have a happy happy family life and all those great things I can serve up looks oh yeah I really just my ultimate life goals is to be happy with where at coz I feel like there’s so many times over where we’re not happy or we’re always trying to do something else or always reaching for other goals oh my god I really cannot stop and then this trap is like let’s fix this I really just want to be doing something that I’m passionate about at the end of the day because I don’t want to be in some boring job I don’t like men give up eight says when will you have a meet and greet so glad you asked this so if you live in LA I have no idea when this video goes up so this is my past but oh yeah those won’t pass because it’s literally next week but I’m going to be at the young african american women’s conference during a college prep workshop and that’s April 7th so it might have passed by the time this video goes up so ignore that but if you live in Atlanta if you live in Atlanta I’m gonna be at the world natural hair show so I’m gonna be a vendor there for both days and I’m also doing a college admissions workshop so if you’re in New York I’m gonna be in New York doing a book signing at bookcon and that is on June 2nd and 3rd and I’m signing on the 3rd with the book publishers so all that information will be streamlined through my social media accounts if you are in any of those cities well who if you’re not then let me know what city you’re in and I can try to hopefully be there one time in the near future Eva Queen says can you use university grants to pay for room and board yeah it just usually you don’t have the option of where your money goes and you’re finding for a package so it kind of like I know USC the first thing they go to is tuition then they go to room and board then they go to like whatever other fees so if you just have to talk to your financial aid office to see like if you have the option to see where your money goes chin a Mara Monza’s says how involved are you in college as far as like extracurriculars not that much but I have a job on campus and I am my inner burg admissions ambassador which is our journalism school so I’m an admissions ambassador for there and I just do so much business that I don’t have always in this club meeting because I’m always doing something during that time but I definitely want to find like an org that I’m really passionate about but I’m still on the search she also says what product you use to lay your edges so I use water h2o all the time but today they look kind of raggedy because I’ve been like changing clothes and shooting and all that stuff but um I use edge control I barely use it control barely like I have an edge control baguette from companies and it just sits good I just feel like it’s more stuff added to your face like I don’t know I just oh yeah I use water whichever we can’t use but if you want to get an edge control I like the by me beautiful edge control because it smells like mangoes and then this edge control the cream of nature pure honey this is way better than their last one as far as scent goes the last one kind of smelled like chemicals this one smells like really good excel underscore o.
