Learning Curve: Be Yourself

Being at home this year has allowed me to reconnect with the group of friends I had in high school. Not that we ever stopped talking to each other, but with me being away at school, it was difficult for us to really be able to talk or see each other. I found my Senior yearbook while doing some house cleaning last weekend & came across what my best friend had written. I had forgotten all the crazy things we did that year because we were "seniors" and no one could tell us we couldn't. We were invincible...

I don't know what's happened in the last year and a half, but they all seemed to have changed. Not in a bad way. I mean, changing is all part of growing up. It's like they haven't stayed true to themselves. They've let the world come in and completely made them forget who they were and the things they stood for.

There's a lot of misconceptions out there about college. Movies glamorize it & make it seem like you aren't having the "ULTIMATE COLLEGE EXPERIENCE" if you aren't at a party every night, doing drugs, hooking up with some guy/girl...

I'm here to tell you that that's not what college is all about. If anything college is somewhere where you can be yourself and feel completely accepted. There are more people out there willing to accept your point of view/way of thinking with an open mind instead of just putting it down. Don't ever feel like you need to give into peer pressure to "fit in" at college. Some of the most interesting people I've had the pleasure of meeting are the ones who don't fit the mold.

I promise, if you just do a bit of searching, there is a club, organization, group...something out there will be just what you're looking for with people that you will instantly connect with. Don't be afraid to try something new or interesting either. If you have any interest in it at all, at least give it a try. Who knows you might just find a new hobby that you didn't even know you were interested in.

If you ever start feeling overwhelmed with college or just life in general...I don't have all the answers, but I'm sure I could find a logical answer somewhere.

You guys are awesome. No Duh! :P

♥ Jen
