Independence: Every College Kid’s Dream
Woah, that’s intense.
Getting ready to leave for college all I could think about was, “I can do whatever I want and no one can stop me.” But even with that thought, I knew that could also be a dangerous thought to be thinking.
After gaining that independence, most kids tend to go wild when they get to college but I knew that I couldn’t; so I learned how to manage. At first I procrastinated a lot and didn’t really worry about much but after the first few weeks I got more on top of my game and I studied more and was better at trying to finish my work as quick as I could. Once, I got into the swing of things college got easier, but was still challenging at times. I find that it is hard to balance a life, school, friends, a boyfriend back home, and family. But, in the end of this journey that I am on I know I will be happy with my life; but that’s not to say I’m not happy now, just stressed because of this new found independence. I can handle it though because I know I am responsible enough to mature and learn to be a full fledged adult without a parent watching over me. I know this because I have made it this far in life and I’m still alive so that has to count for something in my book.
