Picture this. A 21 year old college student about to embark on a post-college world. She has only a dream and a diploma to guide her. I am about to be that girl. College is a very significant time for young adults. I know, personally, it has held some of the most memorable, challenging, and fun years of my life. Currently I’m facing my final exams before I move on to the last semester of my college career. It’s hard to believe I’ve always looked forward to getting to the end of the semester and through my finals tests, while right now, all I want to do is prolong the time I have left.
Therefore, my advice to anyone reading this post would be enjoy the time you have and make sure to live in the now. If you’re always looking forward to the future, you’ll miss out on the present. I’ve always tried to error on the side of caution, but living your life that way can lead to some missed experiences and opportunities. I’m thankful for the experiences that I have had thus far and the people I’ve met along the way, especially the people that I’ve met along the way. If there is one thing that I am really going to miss when I leave college it’s definitely going to be the people and friends I use to see every day.
So, put away the laptop, take that 20 minute study break, and go get coffee with a friend. Enjoy college while you can, because sooner or later it ends and your left with only the memories and the $20,000 dollars in debt.
