Freshman Year of College

Thursday, May 23, 2019

I didn't think my first semester of college was going to teach me as much as it did, boy was I wrong. Including both inside the classroom, and mainly outside of the classroom. In complete honesty, my first semester was a complete mess filled with a lot of highs and a lot of lows. College was a big change for me, and I didn't even leave my hometown.

What I learned Freshman Year of College 

1. You really need to go out of your comfort zone if you want to make friends. Join a Sorority, introduce yourself to people in your classes, go to  a few parties here and there. Worst case scenario- you don't talk to them again, best case scenario- you make a new friend. Remember, everyone is just as scared and nervous as you are, you are NOT alone.

2. Don't expect to make your closest friends right away, and it's totally okay if you don't. You might feel a little lonely sometimes, but everyone goes through this in college, even the ones who you don't think would. 
3. You have to take care of yourself. I know the parties and studying can take a toll, so just make sure you prioritize your sleep, drink water, and remember to eat. These simple things will help you feel so much better. 

4. Remember everything will pass. "If it doesn't matter in five years, it doesn't matter," this quote really helped me this semester. Don't let the little things get to you, and move on when you make a mistake. Everyone makes mistakes, so don't let it get to you. 

5. Do not ever be afraid to ask for help, this includes your mental health and school work. On the flip-side, if someone asks you for help, help them. Your first semester of college can really change your life, let's let it be for the better.
