5 things you would like to know in college

I would not want to know everything in advance about their future, who loves spoilers? However, some things you would like to know a little before. This could save you a lot of unnecessary problems. For example, is university life as fresh (or scary) as everyone says?

While flying in the time machine and noticing yourself is not an option, at least not yet, you can share your experience with others. Who knows? Maybe their mistakes provide an illustrative example and make a big difference for a lot of people, so it was worth doing them after all. Then I will try to save some freshmen with bumps and bruises on the way to college.

University degree does not guarantee success

Unfortunately, these days are over. Now, the title never guarantees a job, let alone the job of your dreams with a salary that covers your basic expenses and your student loan. Do not misunderstand, you need this degree, but be prepared to go the extra mile to secure your position in addition to getting the degree.

When I walked around the stage at the graduation ceremony, I thought my worries were over. Now, I know these are just the first credits. To absolve my ingenuity, I must say that I came out of what I feel centuries ago (and since before 2008, it seems true).

To be absolutely clear: nothing guarantees success. However, sand and knowledge will make it easier. Then, instead of diplomas, try to focus on acquiring knowledge, also known as learning. It’s a skill in itself. You will have to learn all your life, really! Start enjoying it now. Thirst for knowledge, ask questions, make mistakes. You will feel like a freshman so many times in your life. So many times you will have to start again.

The title does not guarantee anything, but it’s the beginning of everything you really want.

 

You can buy yourself some time

When you are a student at the university, you are usually broke. Paying tuition or covering the interest of your student loan at the same time that you earn a living rarely sells the luxury of being able to pay someone to do something for you. However, when you are older and you have more money, you realize that you can buy many things, but only one. Your time back. Once you’ve spent it, he’s gone forever. All you can do is take time now.

I would like someone to tell me at this point that instead of postponing a totally useless project to several weeks, I could ask for a cheap research job at a service. Some of the tasks at the university were stupid, others had no value for my main and future work except credits.

There will always be these BIO courses (blow-it-off) that you really do not need. However, I was an honest student. I spent my time diligently writing many articles that no human soul would read with enough attention to see how much work I put into it.

 

Laziness is a big lie

There is no such thing. If you’re late for hours and you do not want to go to work, there’s a reason for that. Procrastination and laziness can be a form of rebellion, self-assertion. If you do everything possible to avoid doing something, you may not need to do it in the first place. Today, we see laziness in a negative way, because it came from the Protestant work ethic. However, there was a time when people saw it more favorably. Perhaps it is time to reevaluate “hard work” against “smart work” again.

I remember seeing some of my comrades as “slackers”, which, in my opinion, was bad. I kept going, no matter how many hours of sleep I had or the desire to go out with my friends. Although I’m a graduate of Valedictorian, they just graduated and it was pretty good.

Now some of my weaker colleagues are senior executives, inspiring speakers, influential people, self-educated people. Their secret is that they always knew what they wanted. They have not tried to meet the expectations of anyone else in terms of career or to integrate the concept of “student model” of their parents.

 

Sleep, you fool!

You think you do not have time to sleep. You must meet deadlines for missions, organize a big party, make money, lead a rich social life and update yourself in 24 hours. You probably think, “I’m going to sleep when everything’s over.” As a working mother, I can tell you that it never ends. Further in life, the dream is an even more strange luxury.

I used to be like that too: boast about my lack of sleep, share those funny comics about coffee. I even had a shirt that said “The dream is for the weak”. Do not buy in this bull. YOLO is fun, but you know what? It also means that it can ruin your health once and no one will give you another. Your health is important and the sooner you take care of it, the better. Go ahead and take the time to sleep.

The same goes for your diet. I know it sounds like a broken record, but find healthy foods that you like and try not to satisfy your cravings for junk food and sweet things. Healthy habits will pay dividends in ten, twenty or thirty years, but the sooner you adopt them, the more time you will have with your loved ones.
