Hello to all you aspiring college students out there!
A few months ago, I was in your shoes. I was filling out applications, visiting campuses, inspecting dorms, and desperately trying to answer that age-old question: what do I want to do with my life? (aka What major should I choose?)
I won’t lie, it’s daunting. But after I chose my college, my major, and my dorm, everything fell into place and I was no longer worried, right? Wrong! I worried about my new classes, I worried about meeting my roommates for the first time, I worried about moving away from my parents, etc. In fact, I was probably more scared than I had been when I was just looking for the right college.
But don’t worry. With a whole lot of prayer and the help of some wonderful people, things did eventually work out. And I’m going to do my best to prepare you by telling you about some of the challenges I faced and some of the surprises I did not see coming.
So, aspiring college students, don’t freak out. If the most anti-social, panicky, homesick person in the world (me) can make it in college, you can too.
God bless you all,
