I write this post to almost let out all of my emotions and attempt to convey them in a clear and concise manner.
College is the start to your life. It is what can help you build your dream and shape your future. This comes with great responsibility, to use this time to ones advantage. However college for me is also a liberation and validation. In high school every weekend was spent studying, every night stressed. Yes, I did extremely well but I have come to the conclusion that one can do well and still enjoy their experience, and have fun. I have really gotten to know myself this past summer and life is something, I believe, that is meant to be enjoyed. One should still strive to achieve and work hard, but have a little fun along the way. This is what I hope to do this year. I want to have fun doing what I love in a city I fell in love with when I was little, so someday I can look back and think about "the start".
I am so hungry for success and college is only the beginning. I wish to all of you applying or going to college the best. It is an amazing experience.
