Well guys, as you know, I have finished my last final of my first semester of college and have come home for winter break. You know what that means? My college experience is already 1/8th of the way over! Okay, no need to panic yet. I still have plenty of time, but it never fails to amaze me how much quicker life seems to fly by year after year.
There is something out there for everyone. You just have to find it.
You don’t realize how much money you really spend.
You can maintain old friends and new friends.
Things are going to change. If you don’t let them, you’ll be miserable.
You are the person most able to take care of yourself.
Family is still number one.
Get along with your roommate… at least try.
It will make your life so much better. My roommate and I had a rough start. She had her friends over to all hours of the night, and that elicited some issues amongst our suite. In fact, I was miserable some nights, but the minute we decided to openly discuss the problem, and we started putting in an effort, the mood in our room immediately shifted. Now I love her to death, and I couldn’t imagine rooming with anyone else! If you have an issue, just talk about it. You’re adults now, and it might be awkward, but it’ll be worth it. There’s nothing worse than just waiting for your anger to boil over.
