First off, I want to say congratulations to all the recent grads out there, but this post is mainly focused on the recent high school grads. Congrats, you’re done. Most of you will be going off to some sort of college this fall and will be starting a whole new chapter in life. Don’t get me wrong, graduating high school is something to be proud of, but something you will soon realize is that it’s not everything you imagined it would be. College is a whole different ball game than high school, you’re finally on your own and while at first it might be cool, you will come to realize that a part of you actually misses living at home. Another thing about college is the classes. For one, they’re harder…a lot harder. Secondly, it’s weird walking into a class of 200 people and not really knowing anybody. You will start to miss that connection you made with your teachers and classmates back in high school and how everybody knew each other. If you start to question yourself sometime throughout college wondering if you’ll ever graduate or if what you’re majoring in is actually what you want to do, don’t worry, that’s normal and you’er not alone, you’ll figure it out along the way. I guess what I’m trying to say is that going off to college will be different, it will be scary, it will be sad, but it will also be a million times better than high school. You have so much more responsibility, so much more freedom and so many more opportunities. Live it up while you’re in college because the tough stuff comes once you graduate college. Congrats again and I’ll see y’all in the real world.
