Seven Things I Learned in College

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

A few days ago I was visiting with my aunt and she asked me something about being back in college. It really made me start thinking about my days at Longwood and what I miss about it. I absolutely love the four years I spent there. I learned a lot while I was there and not all of it I learned in the classroom! Plus some fun pictures.

Seven. I really grew up when I started "living on my own". I figured out that there was a reason I went to bed at a certain time. 8 am comes really early, and that Australian music professor really isn't that nice to people who sleep in his class!

Six. You shouldn't eat icing straight out of the container on Superbowl night when you have to get up for an 8am class the next morning! It's not fun to stay up all night on a sugar high!

Sugar High. Enough said.
Five. The friends you make at college will be the ones you keep for the rest of your life!

Four. It's okay to have a good cry every once in a while, but sometimes you just have to get dressed up and fake it 'til you make it!

Three. Things will happen when you need them the most! February 15, a Monday, I drove back to my college after saying bye to my boyfriend at the time. I cried almost the whole hour and a half back to my college before my 9 am class started. On the way from the parking lot to my dorm, I found this banner made by the Princeps (a secret society on campus that leaves good luck items for students to find). This could not have come at a better time to cheer me up!

Two. Sometimes you just have to put yourself out there! There will be people to stand beside you and support you!
