6 Reasons Why You Should Graduate Early

From Preschool to Elementary School to Middle School to High School then college, our whole life is filled with school. Basically, five days out of the week everything is about school. Heck, sometimes even the weekends are about school. For instance, when you have to do extra homework or you have to study, sometimes it might be on the weekends. School can be draining and exhausting and sometimes you feel over it and just want to be done with it already. Although you don't have to go to college, you might want a better education so you pursue it even though you might want to be done as quick as you came in. So why not take more credits than you need each semester, heck even take some in the summer, so you can graduate a semester early? Then you could finally be done. Or maybe you want more school, but you could have time to think about that if you finish early. Who wants to finish on time when you can be ahead of the game.

Here are 6 reasons why you should graduate early from college.

1. You're finally FREE

Did I mean to say free? Yes, yes I did! Because you're finally free from school! You no longer have to attend anymore! It's exciting, but also scary at the same time because it will be new for you. Ever since you were three years old you went to school. It's basically your whole life minus two years.


2. You get to spend more time on what you want to do

Being able to graduate early, you can think about what you truly want to know. Even though you worked hard on your major, maybe you are still trying to figure out what path to take and this is where you can have that extra semester to think about and really dedicate this time to work on yourself.


3. You can get started early on a graduate program

Maybe you do know what you want to do and after you graduate early, you can go right into a graduate program so you can get through that early as well.

4.You can travel

Getting out of college, you want to be able to see the world. Especially since you have been cooped up in studying forever. Once you graduate you are ready to set sail and if you graduate early you can pursue traveling even earlier.


5. You can get a job more easily

Usually, there are fewer people who graduate early because they usually graduate on time or late. Since there are fewer people graduating there is less competition for jobs.


6. Discover Yourself

It is finally your time to discover who you are, on your own. You have done everything that was expected from you from your parents, but now it is your turn. It is your turn to find things that you want to expect from yourself.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
