If there was one thing that I could go back in time to tell myself at the beginning of freshman year it would, “relax.” You are not going to go all year without doing bad on an exam or class. You will miss an assignment. You will make A LOT of mistake this year. It is important to relax and handle life one problem at a time and learn from your mistakes. Freshman year will not go exactly as planned, and that is fine. College is not the same thing as high school and things will be harder than they were in high school, but you can’t be hard on yourself every time you are not happy with a grade. Also, go out and have fun! School is important but so is your mental health! This year taught me a lot of lesson that I will definitely keep with myself for the rest of undergrad and probably the rest of my life.
