I submit for your CM consideration the following book: Adulting: How to Become a Grown-Up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps.
Author Kelly Williams Brown tells it like it is, but like she's the sassy older sister of your precious froshie.
Here's some flava:
"Step 1: Accept that you are not that special This is the most difficult and important thing to accept if you wish to be a grown-up: You are not a Special Snowflake.
Step 2: Appreciate those who disagree with step 1 Well, you are to some people. Your parents, presumably, love you very much and think you are perhaps the most adorable, talented thing ever to prance upon this earth. Your friends agree with them, as do your favorite teachers, as does your significant other. When there is a You Parade, these people will be the flag bearers, the drum majors and majorettes, so make sure you are always flag bearing and drum majoring for them, too. These people who think so highly of us are very special and precious, and we must treasure them. Because here is the truth: Most of the world doesn’t give a flying fuck about you."

She says what we can't. It's spot on, and rather funny. I fell in love with this book at Step 1.
