Okay guys, I’m dying. Not literally, but wow life is catching up to me. I only have about 2 weeks left of this semester and school is kicking my ass. College is scary and I constantly feel like I’m about to jump off a cliff. College life is fun, but I literally feel like I’m going crazy with all the craziness I have to keep up with. The past few weeks I’ve been missing high school so much. I never would have thought I’d be the person to say that, but I am. There are so many constants during high school. You basically do the same thing everyday. See the same people everyday. And you are being constantly reminded of when things are due in classes. College professors are some sneaky bastards they won’t say anything to you until after something is due. In college, you like to think you have all sorts of time on your hands, but then you suddenly realize, “omg I have a test tomorrow, omg when did my laundry basket get that full, omg when was the last time someone cleaned the bathroom, omg how long have those French Fries been on the floor, omg wait I have an assignment due at midnight?!” THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS NO ONE TELLS YOU IS GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN YOU GET TO COLLEGE. Your life literally turns into a tornado, but you somehow gotta pretend everything is chill. Thanksgiving break was perfect, but it made coming back to campus so much harder. Whenever I’m here at campus, I feel like I am constantly checking my schedule and freaking out, but back at home I have nothing to worry about.
Dear high school friends,
Enjoy every moment you have left in those halls. Appreciate that your teachers acknowledge you and actually realize you are a human being. Hold on to those memories of hanging out with your best friends close to you and make as many more memories as you can before you cross that stage to get your diploma. Don’t try to get through high school faster than you need to, absorb every minute you have left of it. So many of you are so excited to get to where I am, but don’t let what you have now pass you by. I promise it will go by faster than you can imagine and one day you’ll be like me, wishing you could just go back for even a day.
Your favorite stressed out college student,
