This should have been written four years ago. But since after four years, i landed a job in a college school, maybe now is the time, for how could i write this way before if i was not able to complete my college years.
time to commence a new chapter in your life, but a chapter is too short to cover every detail of a college life. preparing yourself for what life has to offer: everything bigger, broader and brighter.
college is a whole new adventure after high school. no more familiar faces to greet you, as you’ll be meeting new ones. there’s nothing to be afraid of, since all of you are feeling the same way.
college life is quite a journey. it’s assured that what you’ll be doing in college is what you’ll be doing for the rest of your life. But i beg to differ: the only permanent thing in this world is change.
one is no longer sheltered when one get to college. even learning is no longer confined in the 4 corners of the classroom. scary as it sounds, but it will develop you into a mature person. the new found independence is so important for pushing yourself out of your comfort zone to discover a whole new world.
in college, you will have various sets of classmates. depending on the subjects, so you’ve bound to constantly meet new people. you could share your commonalities and learn from each other’s differences. and talking to different type of people gives you different perspectives. it will make you realize how much you actually don’t know about the world around you.
what i love most is that college will force you to explore not just your surroundings, but yourself too. you’ll find yourself asking constantly ” what will be the one thing I’d love to do for the rest of my life? make use of this in college to know more about yourself.
this is the best time to learn, experiment, or focus on advancing your skills, studying things by the book won’t guarantee you to land your dream job.. whatever it is- go ahead, build every detail of it. go for more than what your school is offering.
not knowing something shouldn’t stop you, it should urge you to want to learn more. there’s nothing better than feeding yourself with new knowledge.
don’t wait for the opportunity to come rather make the opportunity yourself. there’s no guarantee it wouldn’t hurt you, that’s life! it will always be nice to look back, see how much you’ve learned and develop and find yourself testing the waters of life.
as for college, there’s nothing to be afraid of. your starting with a clean slate. a plate full of opportunities is waiting. it’s up to you to make the most of everything. enjoy the journey. learn and get a taste of life. stay hungry and stay foolish.
