Things I Wish I Knew Before College

I am back and happy almost end of summer. In my time away I was very sick. But, hey I am better. Well, I am better for now. Any who, we only have two weeks left of August. Can y’all believe August is almost over? Eight years ago I was starting my college career. This post is for my college and high school students. Are y’all ready for a fresh start? As I think back to when I was entering my freshman year of college (and high school) I remember how nervous I was. I had so many thoughts about what the new year would bring. The summer before my freshman year I feel like I changed so many thing about myself. It’s like I kinda grew up. As I began my freshman year I had to face the reality that I wouldn’t see my best friends from high. I had to make all new friends. What in the what what… Like, my breakfast dates to Starbucks were no longer going to be with my life long friends. Starting college made me realize that I am one step closer to adult hood and reaching my career goals. Every school year presents us with a fresh start and so many new opportunities to improve who we are. Back in the day (like 2009) I loved starting a new school year it’s a great time to get rid of things that hindered us in the past.  While I was very excited about this new chapter in my life, the fear of my new found independence defiantly set in.
I would have to say my freshman year wasn’t the easiest of times but with a little bit of confidence, determination, self-motivation and laughter I was able to survive all the things.
Here a list of a few things I wish I would of known before my freshman year
1.     Go to bed. (I wish I would of actually slept 6-8 hours every night)
2.     Do not just pick classes because of the times they are taught. (Look up the professor “rate my professor” who’s teaching the class. Great professors make all the difference)
3.     Stays organized and go to your professor’s office hours.
4.     Know how you like to study. Learn how you best retain information.
5.     Join a club and or get involved on your campus.  
Of course there are so many things you are going to learn over the next 4 years, but I hope these 5 things give you a little head start on the fun adventure you are about to embark on. Also here’s my outfit details form this look in todays post.
