"Things I've Learned in College..."
-Cary from Confessions of a Cruciverbalist
- Don't allow yourself to live with life's "what ifs." It'll make you go crazy playing the mind games with yourself. Waiting for the answer can be terrifying, but strangely liberating when all is said and done.
- Staying up until 1 in the morning, just talking with friends, will be some of the best memories in college.
- Take risks, but don't be stupid. Just try it. It's all part of self-discovery.
- You won't realize how much stuff you accumulate until you have to pack it up at the end of the year and then find a place for it at home.
- There will be professors you love and those you hate. The same goes for classes. If you find that you really don't like something, get out of it while you still can. (This is also applicable for majors!)
- Next to family and free laundry, home-cooked meals are amazing when you've been at school for a long time.
- Find something you are really, truly passionate about. It doesn't have to be your major or your minor or something academic (though it helps). It can be a cause, a passion, etc. Find something that makes you want to get up in the morning, feeling like you can change the world. Once you find that drive, it'll light a fire in you that you didn't know existed.
- Though it might not seem like it, having what seems like a directionless path can often lead you to the right one.
- Even if it seems like it won't ever happen, love is possible. You can't look for it... it'll find you. And it's the best feeling in the world.
