Just last year around this time, I was over high school and could not wait to graduate. I looked at my COUNTDOWN App everyday and aggravated my friends about how close we were to graduation. Everyone was excited about entering the next chapter of our lives but little did we know what we’d experience once we got to college. Honestly, I did not know what to expect, I kind of went into college “blindfolded”. However, over time I learned the flow of campus life and life in general. I became more familiar with different people, a different culture and different environment! I had experienced an entire culture shock! I was not use to hearing the different slang and dialect! But.. I adjusted and later fell in love with the new environment 🙂
Here are a few tips all incoming Freshmen:
1. DO NOT BRING YOUR ENTIRE LIFE TO COLLEGE! YOU WON’T NEED IT!
( Once it was time for me to move out, I brought EV-ER-RY-THANNG! Literally, I brought 52 pair of shoes and out of those 52 I wear 3 pair. It’s sad! I don’t know what I was thinking when I brought majority of my shoes with me. ROTFL! Plus! it’s not enough room! Do not bring you’re entire life to college.)
2. DO NOT STRESS OVER FRIENDSHIPS!!
( I can not stress this enough! FRIENDS COME AND GO! DUH! Friends are always nice to have but they can also be a distraction if you don’t have the discipline. Being in college is so much fun, especially if you’re grades are straight! Having fun in college is almost a necessity lol.. however, prioritize!! Having fun is cool but only turn up / wild out on weekends. Don’t go TU and you know you’re paper is incomplete and it’s due the next morning. *rolls eyes* School should always be your number 1 priority! Remember the reason you are enrolled in college and I’m pretty sure it isn’t to party or focus of “friendships”)
