Ohhhhhh we’re living on a prayer!
Well thank you for that intro Bon Jovi. But really, we’re halfway done with college? It is still hitting me. Right now, my high school is still in session and so being home from college, it’s amusing to look back and be like, “What? AP tests are going on right now? I remember those…”
Reminiscing. Probably my most positive and negative trait. Because if you know me, you’d know that I cherish every memory. Sometimes too much. Me and nostalgia are best friends by now. That is indeed why I take so many pictures.
But seriously, I just remember being a sophomore in high school, which is now FOUR YEARS AGO (what the hell…) and thinking to myself, “Oh, I got two more years of high school. That’s a long time.” And it flew by. And I remember on my high school graduation thinking about how it had gone by so quickly.
I don’t expect anything different with these last two years of college except for that maybe it’ll go even faster. I feel like I still have a lot to accomplish these next few years. And I do. And I always think to myself, “Do I really have time to do it?”
But then I think about how if I keep worrying about not having enough time…that time will fly by as I worry. And I’ll regret trying to fit everything in by force instead of just…letting it happen.
I’m excited for these next two years. I’m nervous. I’m skeptical. I’m stressed. I’m thrilled. I’m amused. I’m every adjective you can possibly think of. But I think that just means that I care. I care about my education. I care about my experience at Michigan. I care about the friends I make here. I care about the mistakes I make. I care about the failures I have. And I care about the successes I’ll have with the combination of all of what is listed above.
And so with that, all I can say is that these next two years? Let’s all make the most of it and keep caring. Because no one wants to live with regrets.
