Greetings, fellow bloggers and students!
I am back with my final blog of the summer, the surprise bonus blog. In this post, I want to give you some final pieces of advice. I have said it over and over again; you are about to start the next chapter of your life. You will be living away from home for eight months out of the year doing everything for yourself. You will need to feed yourself, make your own appointments, clean, make payments, etc. You will have a lot on your plate. Things may get tough, but the thing that you need to remember is that you can do it. Have faith in yourself!
Not only will you be changing your everyday life and habits, but you will also be meeting new people. You will meet new friends and new teachers. Yes, this is a scary process, but you must remember that every other freshman is in your shoes as well. They are also meeting new people in a new place without the help of their parents. Just remember to be yourself and you will find the perfect group of friends for you!
Additionally, after changing your lifestyle and meeting new people, you will gain new responsibilities. You are responsible for attending class and managing your time to fit in all of the studying that you will need to do. It takes a few weeks to get time management down, but you will get it eventually!
College, as I have stated all summer, is a very scary process, but if you stay true to yourself and put in the effort, you will have a blast. This is supposed to be one of the happiest times of your life! Take advantage of every moment. Relax and remember that you have made it this far! You all have the capability to do great things-share it with the world.
Congratulations and good luck on your exciting journey.
