Freshman Year: In Review
I made some friends, I lost some friends. I learned that best friends will be friends from miles and worlds away. I learned that it is important to speak what you feel lest you never forget that you do, indeed, feel. I learned that the most important weapon in my arsenal are my words, and as with all weapons, I should be careful, because sometimes weapons do more harm than good. I have learned that true confidence is not loud and mean, but quiet, because when you are sure of something, you don’t have to scream it. I have learned that I am a treasure, not someone’s target, and a pearl never dulls its own shine, so neither should I. I have learned that class is defined by how we handle our mistakes, not by which mistakes we make. I have learned that there are some things we cannot control, that sometimes bad things happen to wonderful and beautiful people, that sometimes people are confused and angry so they are cruel. But most importantly, I’ve learned that in these times,if you are willing to allow it, you’ll always find people willing to help. The most important thing I’ve learned my freshman year of college is to look to those who love you, and ask for help, because it’s OKAY to not be okay, and it’s okay to need help.
