10 things college taught me

It has been since April since I last wrote!  It feels weird, but I have been taking this time to focus on me (and let’s face it– school has taken up most of my time).  I try to squeeze in as much as I can at once with everything: family, friends and my own time.  I was itching to write something and wanted it to be a fun post because I realized a lot of my blog posts are pretty serious whether I mean to write them that way or not.  Sorry, not sorry.

I’ve gone through college twice.. over exaggerating? Tiny bit. I completed my bachelor’s degree in 2016 and I am currently wrapping up my master’s degree (just a little under 6 more months but who’s counting, right?).  Since I am almost done with my master’s I thought it would be fun to share what this experience of gaining two degrees has taught me thus far that I have helped me through life in general (with or without a degree).  Here goes nothing.

  1. You are greater than you think you are.  Stop doubting whatever it is, because what you have is great
  2. Only you can define you.
  3. Be yourself because everyone else is pretty weird (am, I right?)
  4. The risk, the tears, the difficulties you may go through are all worth the triumphs
  5. You literally got this.  Like you can do anything you set your mind to and then some.
  6. You are destined for bigger things… things bigger than you and you will accomplish them
  7. It is okay to break down and say, I can’t (spoiler alert: YOU CAN!)
  8. Change your mindset.  It is really amazing when you start off with a positive attitude or change your “have-to’s” to “get-to’s”.
  9. You will be okay.  I have literally felt the lowest I thought I could be, but in the end I was okay.  Whatever it is that is difficult (from small to big), eventually, you will be okay.
  10. Be excited about your next chapter because it’s big.
