“College in a nutshell”
“College in a nutshell” ?
In high school, we see college as a get away from the grasp of our parents and we tend to be excited in entering college and starting our own lives independently, manage our own expenses and decide for ourselves as some of us leave our hometowns to pursue our dreams in a university far from home. Different people coming from diverse culture and society, gather in one place to learn and study. It is the venue where you meet new people who interest or repel you, where coffee becomes a necessity in order to finish loads of paper works, where you become a singer, dancer, actress/actress depending on the performance task, welcome to college. ?
The first few weeks of being in college as a freshman would be comparable to the state of being a fish out of water, being away from home trying to adapt on a new environment and mingling with unfamiliar people. You gain and lose friends on the way, that’s one of the realities in life that you discover in college. Vices, depression and anxiety are also some of the hindrances that college students suffer from, but in order to overcome them you should train yourself to have a strong mind and determination to go on. You will also get to know that time runs in a different manner because unlike high school, you may have early and late classes with long or short intervals but as you get used to it, you will eventually move to the rhythmic ticking of the college clock. And if you ever heard the phrase, “you should think like college students and act like one”, that is an evidence of how college standards are set. In college it is believed that you should commit less mistakes because aside from the fact that you are already matured, you should have supposedly learned the basics from pre-school to elementary then high school and recently senior high school before reaching college. ?
Some say that college is the stage in life where best moments happen, and others may state otherwise. But everything depends on you, because you are the determining factor for the outcome of your college life. Studying is hard specially if you would include the pressure from parents, peers and even the society but remember that life was never meant to be easy, it was meant to be conquered. You cannot take a shortcut in achieving your dreams in life, so read your books and follow excellence then soon it will lead you to success. #
