Hey, hey, hey to all of the college students out there!
If you are in school right now or have been previously, you may understand the dreaded time during the end of the year. Honestly, finals in college are different than they were in high school, and the grades count so much more- plus in certain cases the grade is cumulative.
I haven’t been posting in about a month, and as much as I hate essays and exams, I’m glad I finally found time to post about some topics that matter to me. I’ll hopefully be posting more on politics, and the current situation in the US, as well as globally over break. Which brings me to my main point: doing what you love is the most important thing in the world. It’s obvious that I wouldn’t major in Math if I hate it- and while I do come up with some pretty mean solutions to slope/ equation problems, I’d miss writing too much! You have to find time to do what you love- even if you don’t have any time at all. There’s a quote out there, and while I am not sure who said it, the message remains:
“If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.” Some great advice- that’s why I majored in writing.
So find a way to connect what you’re doing now to the future! Even if you are a Chemistry student slaving away in the lab…your future career revolves around science. Are all of those hours spent in front of microscopes, complicated textbooks, and your dimly lit desk lamp worth it? Will it make you happy?
You don’t deserve anything less than what you love. That’s why you should try to be curious, and even if it is a long exam, look at the end goal. For me, it’s a journalist. For you? The world is your oyster.
Go get em’ tiger!
