“I’m a twenty year old with nothing accomplished.”
This is a thought that I feel is universal for every young professional at one moment or another, whether we are in college or not. At such a young age why do we feel the need to constantly beat ourselves down about the incredible opportunities we have yet to accomplish, and to ignore and disregard the present opportunities as if they won’t be the breakthrough we are tired of waiting for? Because we assume that we are held to this unrealistic standard that the younger you are, the more likely you are to be successful. The other option, of course, being that the older you get, the less likely you think you are to be considered for these “amazing” offers.
This is probably going to be one of the most personal pieces I ever write on this website. It is something that needs to be said and understood by everybody.
We are all human. Humans are imperfect; we all have flaws. Now that you know you’re not perfect, it’s time to explain why other people may not be perfect. Because on the inside, everybody is fighting a different battle with themselves. It doesn’t matter if you think you’re perfect – your battle is trying to live up to that standard of perfection that you think you may be. For others, it’s a much more difficult battle with illnesses such as anxiety and depression.
This post comes all in good timing, as I am currently in bed (at the time of writing this, which is currently 10:11PM on March 17th, just about 5 hours until release time!) awaiting the expected 3:00AM EST release of the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil. I’m staying up until the 3:00AM release time because I have actual social things that I have to do tomorrow that are interrupting my binge-watching time and I NEED TO GET IT DONE.
On April of last year I made a post ‘10 Things I Have Learned in my First Year of College‘. In an effort to get back to writing about college and my experience (which is the whole point of me blogging), I’m going to do an updated version of the list where some things may be different and some may be the same. I’ll try to make the points in this post reflect points in the old post so we can see how much my opinions have changed over the year. Without further ado, here are 10 New Things I’ve Learned While Being at College!
Blogging is a fantastic way to be able to express yourself and write about things that you love, but how do you find specifically the type of blog that you are? Say that you like a lot of different things, like myself, but you don’t fit in with the biggest niches out there, also like myself. Here is how I found my blogging niche and how you can find yours!
Graduation from high school is an exciting time for any student. It means that you have completed one part of your life and are going to go on to the next exciting part: college. No matter if you are the oldest, youngest, middle child, it takes a long time to mentally prepare yourself to walk across the stage and realize that your life is going to change as you go on a new journey. Here are my tips on how to prepare yourself (and your family) for graduation.
