Hey guys! Welcome back. Today’s post is about the things I have learned in college and most people I have talked to have learned a few of these as well. It’s more than just studying and partying, so I wanted to let you in on a few of the things I have learned.
Be kind to people and they will be kind back.
Maybe not everyone, but most people. Just a friendly smile or a “Hello” will do the trick. People are a lot more friendly in college than they are in high school.
Don’t judge anyone for their choices.
Whether they drink, don’t drink, study, don’t study, always looks nice, or looks like they just rolled out of bed. It doesn’t matter. Everyone is living their life and makes their own choices. It’s not up to you to judge them. Focus on yourself and your goals and you will get far.
Be good to your body.
Eat, sleep, exercise. Don’t skip meals no matter what. Sleep. Don’t procrastinate. Do your work and then go to sleep.
Chase your dreams no matter what anyone says.
What you want out of life and what you want to do with it is up to you. Don’t let anyone tell you you shouldn’t or can’t. That’s up to you.
Read your emails.
One thing I’ve learned in college is to check your email every morning because sometimes professors cancel class and you need to be aware of that.
You may think it’s a good idea to drink lots of coffee, but water will give you more energy than coffee. Especially at the start of your day. Plus, it’s better for you.
Music can get you through anything.
It’s better to have a few real friends than lots of bad friends.
Don’t be afraid to change your major.
I’ve changed mine several times. And I was the person that said I would never. It’s not a bad thing, but rather sometimes it’s the best decision you can make.
It’s okay to say “no” without justifying it.
If you would rather stay in and watch Netflix than go out to a party or something you can. You don’t even have to tell anyone that that’s what you are doing. You don’t have to have an excuse for not wanting to do something.
Always have a fun or interesting fact about yourself.
This will help you make friends and if you have class or join a club where you will have to introduce yourself, having one on hand will help tremendously.
No matter how long someone has been a part of your life, it doesn’t mean they necessarily need to stay in it.
Toxic people and college don’t mix. Alleviate as much stress from your life as you can.
Truly get to know people.
Don’t judge people you don’t know. Get to know them before you assume the kind of person they are. You will be surprised.
You don’t have to party and drink to have a good time.
Find friends with similar interests. If you life parties, be friends with people who like to party. If you would rather stay in and watch movies, find friends who also enjoy that. Whatever it is you like to do, you are sure to find at least one other person who also enjoys doing that.
If you try hard enough, you can have whatever you want.
And those are the things I have learned in college so far. I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Comment below some of the things you have learned. Also, don’t forget to follow if you’re not already and I will see you next time!
