Top Page do it anyway



  1. Living on your own is so rewarding. It’s definitely scary at first, but when you make that first grocery store trip, or vacuum your own carpet, or notice that you’ve gotten yourself into this unique little schedule of life, you realize that you’re capable of so much more than you thought you were. Even if it’s just little things.
  2. You find your people where you find yourself. You’ll encounter thousands of new people your first year at college, but the people you stumble across when you’re doing something you love are the people you want to hold on to. People who understand your passions and appreciate your little niches are the most important, and they will often become some of your best friends.
  3. Calling home every so often is so important.It’s easy to get immersed in your new surroundings, but momma wants to know what’s up! Keep your parents updated to let them know you’re okay, and don’t forget to tell them how much you love them.
  4. It’s important to not forget why you’re here. Academics have to always come first. As hard as it might be to decline that late night ice-cream adventure the day before your final, remind yourself that studying is a top priority, and that the ice-cream isn’t going anywhere. Keep that GPA up. I promise you’ll be proud when you see an A on your transcript.
  5. Drinking isn’t a big deal. Do what you want to do. Nobody is going to shun you if drinking isn’t your thing. It’s easy to sit back and just say no if that’s what you’re comfortable with.
  6. Your residential life is what you make it.Sure you don’t have to knock on your neighbors’ doors once in a while, but it’d be nice if you did. Befriending your floormates makes dorm life that much better. You become a family, and whether you need a last minute group study session, or a buddy to run to Starbucks with, there’s always people there for you. Take advantage of that.
  7. It’s wonderful to love your roommate, but it’s okay to not. Some roommates click and can’t live without each other by the end of the year, and others simply co-exist and don’t bother with each other. Either way you make it through, and you find people you want to spend your time with. 
  8. "To-Do" lists are everything. Keeping track of assignments and errands and meetings is not the easiest, but “to-do” lists help to manage time and keep you motivated! There’s no better feeling than putting a check mark in the little box next to an accomplished task.
  9. The world outside high school is remarkably enormous. Contrary to your prior beliefs, you will quickly learn that you’ve been in a teeny tiny little bubble for the first 18 years of your life. That bubble is popped freshman year of college, and it’s so freeing. Things that once meant everything will be hard to even remember.
  10. The whole experience is the real deal. For lots of people, college is the last stop before heading out into the real world with a career. Everything you do in college is going to help you and influence your future. Keep that in mind, and make sure you take it seriously, as much fun as you’re having.
  11. Allowing change and individual growth is vital. There’s no doubt you’re going to change as a person freshman year. It’s the year your life does a 180 turn and everything moves at full speed ahead. It’s alright to feel like you can’t keep up with it. Appreciate every second, and know that you’re not going to be the same person leaving as you were coming. Change is 100% healthy and necessary. It’s also beautiful.
  12. The best is yet to come. Even though, at the end, you feel like everything is perfect, and you’re worried sophomore year isn’t going to live up to the novelty and excitement of freshman year, remember that this is only the beginning. Doors of possibilities are going to keep opening, and time is going to bring more than you could even imagine, so hold on to the memories and the beauty your first year brought you, but be ready to jump into the next three years with an open mind, heart, and soul.

"Taylor Swift songs are meant to be sung aloud in the shower, danced around to in the middle of the street and cried to when you’re home alone with nothing but chocolate ice cream. But above all else, they’re supposed to speak to you."

I see myself on a different angle to you. My angle makes me appear rather chubby and large, your angle makes me look normal. If people understand this and stop saying “but you’re not fat” it’d be so much better. I am fat when I look at myself. I don’t know what you see but if people could understand that angles make a huge difference…

thank u so much for this
