Although college is a serious part of your future, it is also a time in your life where you need to have fun and grow into who you are. To successfully get the most out of your four or five years at the university of your choice, you need work life balance. Yes, it is critically important to get your studies done and when it is time to buckle down you do; however, having fun is critical. Everyone needs to go through their crazy party days to get it out of their system. This is a time in your life where you have minimal responsibilities.
Friends, you will gain your best friends for the rest of your life. After high school, you will maybe keep in touch with a handful of your friends. You need to go out, stay up to late, and do stupid things with your college friends. Ask any graduate, this is going to be some of the best times of your life. The memories that you will make are going to carry with you for the rest of your life.
When coming into college, you think four years sounds like a long time. Like Kenny Chesney says, “don’t blink” seriously though. Your college career goes by soooooo fast, you are so consumed in your school, work, and social life that time flies. Sometimes you need to step back for a minute and live in the moment. A lot of the time I found myself so worried and focused on what is next. Stay in the present to enjoy your once in a life time opportunity. Trust me once life hits, you wont have time to stay out until 3am drinking with your buddies on a Tuesday. The memories you make will carry with you for the rest of your life, so enjoy yourself, have fun, and study hard.
