What surprised me most about my college experience, is all that I have learned about myself. I’ve learned how much I love college. Trying to picture myself not being in college is almost impossible because I feel so at home here, I finally feel that I am where I am supposed to be. I have a lot of time to reflect on myself and who I am, I’ve learned that I can’t procrastinate for the life of me I have to do everything early. I’ve also learned that I am super punctual and need a plan for everything rather it be school or just hanging out. I’ve grown very close to some of my teachers more than I have with my fellow classmates, since being in college I’ve kept to myself a lot more than I ever had but I don’t mind it too much. I’ve learned that I am a pretty big activists, I keep well up to date with current issues going on form the Michael Brown case to current LGBTQ issues and college gives me the chance to express my opinions and make a difference more than I ever had been able. The most difficult part is being apart from my friends and my family, I miss hanging out with my friends driving around and being able to be my true self around them but I look forward to breaks where we can have good old times. College has been such a great experience and it was the missing puzzle piece to my being, college hasn’t been a walk in the park but everyone need a challenge ever so often. I can really see the payoffs from College and what a privilege it is and I can’t wait to see what the next four years will be like.
