If we were all aware of that statement, life would be so much easier. I went through college without appreciating all the fun that can be had in college. I mean, it was fun, but I did spend a lot of weekends pent up in my single dorm room isolated and depressed. Feeling lonely, though there was absolutely no reason to be. My friends were right down the hall, and be called on Instant Messaging anytime to go to the dining hall and break up the momotony of schoolwork. I studied very much, which would make my parents happy and paid attention in all of my classes. I had friends, very fun friends that I would go to different meetings like InterVarsity (a Christian club at Longwood) and I got really involved in my building’s Hall Council, advocating for Wellness through the Health center and in TRO (Therapeutic Recreation Organization) Fraternity. Through TRO we helped with Special Olympics held at our school, Longwood University.
But it’s having boyfriends, and other meaningless relationships that are dwelt so much upon at the time that makes it hard to see what is right in front of you. Good friendships, time better spent doing THE FUN activities that are supposed to be participated in when one is actually in college. There is no magical time machine that allows to go backwards for a redo
IF I KNEW NOW WHAT I DIDN’T KNOW THEN…
But that’s kinda sounding like a country song.
