No doubt this is an important topic because the university is another world of it’s own and this is where men are moulded to be solid men or are wasted. Many have gained yet many have lost as well.
The first thing that faces a new student in every school is making friends and this friends made will either make or mar the person. This is the reason while I have decided to use this platform www.marcelsblog.com to suggest to new students the ten types of friends they should first seek for in the university world.
Don’t necessarily look for an already made intelligent friend but work hand in hand with a willing friend and both of you will attain great heights.
TEN BEST FRIENDS TO MAKE IN THE UNIVERSITY
1. A TIME ABIDING FRIEND
This is the first type of friend you should seek for in the university because the first habit you need in school is to abide by time and once you have a friend who would always tell you “it’s time” then you are on a path-way with a head-way.
2. A CALM FRIEND
A calm friend is as good as a calm brain. You don’t need to keep busying your brain, you need a time to calm down and with your calm friend by your side, you can easily achieve this aim.
Watch it, when a noisy person is in the company of a calm person, he or she tends to be less noisy and becomes calculative for that period. So as you would not like to miss fun and noisy moments, make a calm friend who would always calm you down when you are becoming too noisy or upset.
3. A LITTLE BIT NOISY FRIEND
I am not trying to contradict the above guide but I am trying my best to fit in reality. A saying goes “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” and it also makes Jane a dull girl. So choose for yourself that best friend who is a bit noisy yet calculative.
4. A RESPECTFUL FRIEND
Needless saying, this is a point you should know. A disobedient friend may ruin your day from sunrise and wouldn’t mind to keep you that way till sunset.
NOTE: Good friends might upset you at some point but they wouldn’t let it linger for a long time.
5. A KNOWLEDGE LOVING FRIEND
This is why I said earlier that you should not necessarily keep looking for an already-made intelligent friend but if they come your way, don’t lose them.
It is good to have a friend who is more intelligent than you but don’t keep him or her if he or she has the habit of always snubbing you or making you feel you are below standard. Get angry and break off the bond of that friendship, it is not worth it.
Look for that knowledge loving friend who is ready to move along with you and you might find yourself academically above the former friend.
6. A FRIEND WHO LOVES TO EXPLORE NEW THINGS
This type of friend is superb, don’t miss them. They are those friends who would tell you “but this can be easier done this way” then you give it a try and it works but if it doesn’t, they try another method. To me, this friends are a must-have.
7. A FRIENDS WHOSE ACHIEVEMENTS ARE INTIMIDATING
This point is very serious, do not make friend with low achievers who are not willing to learn instead strive to make friends with people who have achieved more than twice what you have. In this situation, you may need an upper level student. It is rewarding, try it.
8. A FRIEND WHO IS SLOW TO ANGER
This is mostly for people who cannot cope with angry friends. There is no point keeping a friend whom you can’t cope with, just tell yourself the truth and quit it before it quits you.
9. FUNNY SMART FRIEND
Woo! This is the point I can’t miss in this article. In fact, this friends are just good to stay with.
They are those friends who can tease you out of your worries ad then offer a smart way to sort things out, which would work. If you miss them, you’ve missed real fun.
10. A GOD FEARING FRIEND
Above all, if this factor is not considered, then it might be leading to a wrong path. This is last on my list but consider it first.
