Getting Over The College Hurdle
If someone gave me the task of describing college in one word I would definitely say "experimental". A huge portion of your undergraduate college career is made up of trial and error. Trying to figure out what works and what doesn't work in both social and academic aspects. Fortunately, it doesn't take most people very long to see what works for them and what doesn't. Personally, I find myself more all around successful in college versus high school. I find myself staying more on top of things as well as just genuinely valuing my education a lot more. But of course, it wasn't always as enjoyable as it is now. This is where I'd say the hardest part of college is.
The huge adjustment process from high school to college was probably the hardest part of college. With that being said I considered myself lucky that adjusting was my hardest part. For others it's usually their workload, being away from home, stress, and of course that infamous freshmen fifteen. Being far from home is actually really fun for me. I enjoy the getaway. But so far my toughest hurdle in college has been just the adjustment. From time management, having to be an actual adult, and staying focused it has definitely been a journey. Successful thus far but nevertheless, it's been a journey.
College is such an enjoyable time and I'm blessed to be in the situation that I'm in. From the long nights and productive mornings to the fun memories shared with lifelong friends and everything in between. Don't be scared away or intimidated. Keep your head on straight, stay focused on the long run, and manage your time wisely and you'll be just fine. Get ready for a very memorable 4-5 years.
