Everything is about to change. Everything you wanted for your future is actually not what you want. Your mind is going to change so many times, so buckle down during those existential crises (there will be many). Be more present in all of your relationships or people will mistake you being busy for you ignoring them. DO NOT get so caught up in trying to control everything because it will not work. Never underestimate the power of a really good soft tissue when you’re sick because those thin cheap ones you bought will not suffice. Call mom more often than you originally plan to, she needs to know you’re doing okay. Make sure you save every picture you take of Tyson when you’re home because you will miss that little pup more than you planned to. Pay attention to those who pay attention to you, they’re worthy of your time. On that note, quit putting so much energy into those who don’t pay attention to you. No matter how hard you try you just won’t be it for them (that is okay). Most of all, be aware of all the greatness around you and look for ways to utilize it. You’ll survive your first year, just don’t forget to pray!
