Finishing up my first year of college has made me come to the realization that no one can be trusted, and that the amount of work you dedicate yourself in is all up to you.Clearly these are two different points, so I’ll elaborately explain each one.
The First realization,”No one can be trusted.”
This sentence speaks for itself, because no matter what you tell anyone, they will tell someone else and the pattern will repeat. There’s a reason why a person confides in only one person, and for them to break that trust is despicable. This is just a general broad idea I have realized.
The second realization, “The amount of work you dedicate yourself in is all up to you.”
Whoever told you that college would be smooth sailing is a liar. The professors don’t care if they fail you, unlike high school when teachers were concerned if you were failing because they wanted you to graduate. This is why it’s very important to study and dedicate yourself to your classes. It’s possible to receive straight a’s instead of straight b’s or c’s. It all depends on how much work you put in, with the addition of your studying habits and what not. Remember to always be dedicated and believe that you can accomplish anything.
Overall my college experience has been overwhelming. I’ve taken interesting classes and met some unique individuals, but still feel as if I’m missing something in my life. I don’t know what it is, but I’m determined to make that feeling disappear or find “it.” I’m generally content with everything in my life, but know that there’s so much in store for me. I’m bound for something special, I just know it.
