Balancing your studies and social life requires a lot of time. You are already doing so many inspiring and amazing things. However, these four years will fly by very fast. Thus, it is very important to get the most out of college life.
You should start doing more in order to fully embrace the moments that college life provides you with. This way, you will have no regrets about not doing what you have always wanted when you had a chance.
Despite the advice of running from the Internet and enjoying the real world, I am sure that there are so many benefits the it can give. Firstly, it is an opportunity to connect with anyone in the world in a few seconds. Secondly, a phone with the access to the Internet is also a map and a source of instant advice, especially when you are travelling.
Besides, you can always read what is going on around the world by simply checking a few good online newspapers or magazines. The Internet provides you with useful information regarding the most wanted jobs, current startups, blog posts on any subject you’d like to explore, etc. Use the Internet for educational purposes and you will be amazed how much invaluable time it saves for you. Nowadays, the information is at hand: buy online, watch films, do a research, study, meet new people, etc. The Internet should be considered as a great way of exploring the world rather than a plague that deprives you of real-life communication.
Do you remember writing an application form to get to college? Remind what you have mentioned there, what you have expected to get out of college life, what you have planned to contribute, etc. Now, look at what you have achieved and what is still on the horizon. I strongly advise you not to lose time and work hard, so that you will be able to reap the benefits in the future.
Remember that you have entered the college to pursue your goals but not have parties every single night. Killing time shouldn’t be the main characteristic of a college student, should it?
When you are a freshman, meeting new people is the first step to take. Moreover, everyone is so friendly and outgoing, trying to make friends with you. When you are a sophomore, the process slows. However, when you are at your junior year, you mostly don’t meet anyone. It shouldn’t be like this though. Do not let people you cherish and appreciate drift away. Then, you will be able to meet their friends as well. Moreover, you will discover new places together. You should be open-minded and ready to meet new people all the time.
