What I wish I had known before college.

  1. Take career guidance seriously, ask questions and do your research, intern somewhere if you can. Remember to take all advice with a grain of salt.
  2. What you study at college does matter. Carefully consider all your options and do some self- reflection into who you are and what you want out of life before deciding what to study. You might never get the chance again.
  3. It’s okay to take a gap year to figure out what you really want to do if you don’t know.
  4. Everyone has an opinion on what you should do with your life, and most of them have good intentions, but ultimately, it’s your decision, and if it is truly what you want to do and you believe in yourself, by all means do it. Prove them wrong.
  5. How well or how badly you do in your first semester and first year of college affects your overall Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) at the end of your course. It’s a lot harder to get it up if you screw around in your first year, no matter how well you do the rest of the semester. So focus.
  6. Yes, you can go to college and study anything you want, even music.  An education in any field makes all the difference.
  7. Relationships are great, but at this point in time, no boy is more important than your grades.
  8. Hangovers and blackouts are no fun and you can get into serious trouble. Party responsibly.
  9. You are smart. Have a little more confidence. Don’t hide. Speak up.
  10. It’s okay to disappoint people, even the ones you love the most. It’s never okay to disappoint yourself. Do not cheat yourself. Be true to who God made you to be.

I hope this post was helpful and relatable in some way.
