BLUR OF FUN!
The college life.
Getting jitters on the very first day of college? It’s every fresher’s story!
Switching over to college as soon as you get done with your high school is a recasting turn in every student’s life. Most of us hated school back then. Obviously who would like to wake up at 6 am every morning? But time changes and so does our opinion about school. Entering into college is a whole new feeling. You’ve probably already wondered how college will be like. Will it be like home? Will it be fun and exciting? Will it be nerve wracking? You enter college with countless thoughts. You do, right?
In terms of meeting new people, it is easier in college than, say, after switching to a new school in the eighth grade. Every freshman is new to the college, so it is a lot less awkward to introduce yourselves. Every person is so different and unique. You get to learn a lot from them and grasp whatever qualities you can. You develop your own peer group and like every student’s college dream, plan various things for each day. Attending concerts, parties, going to trips, etc becomes a part of your life, even if it wasn’t in your high school days.
You no more have to set your alarms for each morning, because you usually wake up at the time of your first lecture (or whenever you want!). You schedule your day just as you like and have no strict rules to follow. It’s like breaking free from the restrictions that were forced upon you during your school life. Another cool thing about this place is that you tend to explore your interests and passions, as you get more opportunities and exposure. When college commences you may be dealing with loads of emotional highs and lows probably more than you did in high school.
But don’t worry, that’s not new. Everyone goes through that phase at least once. Being a human is an emotional experience. It’s like our body is the host of numerous emotions like happiness, anger, sadness and anxiety. Your freshman year is definitely going to make an impression on you. You’ll be making a lot of new confidants. Just continue to be yourself. Don’t strike a pose or play the role of someone you’re not. Select your friends with the same care and patience that you have always used. Believe it or not, your college friendships will be
among the most satisfying and longterm ones of your life. It’s always exciting to discover how wonderfully diverse college relationships can be. You will also be your own boss here, all on your own. Don’t go flying off the end of the pier, just enjoy your newly found freedom. It might be difficult for some to adapt themselves according to the surroundings, but it is going to be okay. Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help and brave enough to ask for it.
Looking at the brighter side of it, every day is a new adventure after you have been well settled into your daily routine. Nevertheless, what to wear and what not to is a task every morning! Everyone wants to look smart and presentable. You will always cherish the years spent here, it is indeed a magical experience. Those daily munching sessions, gossiping with your friend, stalking pretty girls and hot boys, those blurry drunk nights! From falling asleep in class to putting a lock on leftovers to keep roommates from raiding your shelf in the fridge – It’s a complete rollercoaster ride.
At times you may not understand what is happening, but still you will enjoy it. Ten years from now, when you will be flipping pages of your photo album, you will be overwhelmed for sure. This experience will help you grow as a person. You will learn a lot and you will sooner or later be focused on your career and ultimate goals. The zeal is surely going to be strong and as you move ahead in life, you will only explore newer things, there will be no end to it.
Reach the pinnacles in your lives and make everyone proud. The widespread idea of college life is seldom the reality. The majority of college freshmen enter here picturing an easy, fun-filled ride. Well, its not that easy! You not only have to manage your academics, but your social life as well which is equally important at this age. What most young people are searching for is a meaningful cause. They are overflowing with a blend of adrenaline and confidence. Provided the right directions and guidance, they can become second to none.
For the freshers who will be joining college and for the ones who are already through with their graduation, all the very best! Hope you have a great and memorable journey! There’s a lot in store waiting for you! “Drama, lies, tears Cheers to the teenage years!”
