Words of Wisdom for the College Newbies
My baby brother reached a milestone event in his life yesterday. He made the move away from home and onto college. I can NOT believe he's already in college. Time certainly does fly.
All of this got me to thinking, though. When you begin college, you think you have all the time in the world. It is four years, after all. In all reality though, it goes by in the blink of an eye.
As with all things, we want to make the best of the time we're given. Looking back, I wish SO badly that I would've studied abroad. When else in your life can you just jaunt off to Europe for 4 months and explore? Seriously? At the time, I thought I would miss out on so much being away from my beloved Indiana University for that length of time. In retrospect... WHAT WAS I THINKING? IT'S EUROPE, Morgan! EUROPE, for crying out loud!
So, tell me friends, what's one piece of advice you'd give my new-to-college brother? Study abroad? Study more? ;) Whatever it is, give me (and him) your two cents. I'll do my big sister duty and make sure it gets put to good use.
