Yay, it's Friday! It sounds odd to say this, but do you find that as you get older, time goes by much quicker? I used to die wishing it was Friday on Monday, and now I'm wishing it was Monday on Friday since I don't feel like I got enough work done during the week!
2015 has flown by, maybe that's simply because I'm officially 18 and that means time starts flying by at this point. Can you believe it's almost 2016? A new year means new goals and a fresh start. I'm not one for making fitness goals like a lot of people seem to, so I try and stick to career goals. I've had some friends lately who have approached me about advice for being in college and not knowing the path they want to go down. I've known what I wanted to do with my life since I was 12 years old, which makes my position a little different, especially since I decided not to go to college.
The best advice I can give is to find your passion. Make 3, 6, and 10-month goals for yourself. Jot them down in a notebook. For me, the quality of my notebook has a tendency to determine my happiness and level of effectiveness: find an insanely dope notebook. Write down when you're feeling sad, when you're feeling happy, and when you've got an idea. Even if the idea is simply what you want to make for lunch, any idea can turn into one of your dreams.
When it comes to school: don't be afraid to try new things. Try a class out that's totally random just for the sake of randomness. College is meant for experimenting, so you might as well force yourself to feel uncomfortable to truly find what you love. Work hard, but don't forget to have fun. And if you're a gal, don't give as much attention to boys who aren't worth your attention. They should be chasing you: never chase them. Being young and single gives you the ability to wait for the right person who understands you, and gives you equal time to pursue your dreams.
"It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both." Machiavelli
