10 Things To Remember As You Enter Your Last Year Of College

I'm heading into my last year of college, and I can't believe it! Four years later, and I'm one more year left of getting my degrees. It's crazy. I know I'm not the only one that is in the same boat as I am. Here are 10 things to remember as you enter your last year of college.

1. Enjoy your last year


This is your last year of college. Enjoy it. Don't take it for granted. When you are older, and look back at your time in college, what do you want to look back at?

2. Don't stress about grades


Yes, grades are important, but they aren't that important. Just try your best. College is not just about the grades. It's so much more than that.

3. Just be yourself


I know this sounds cliche, but it is so true. Just be yourself because everyone else is already taken. Yes, there will be people who won't like you, but the right people will like you. And you will be so much more happier if you just stop pretending.

4. Go to sporting events


Try to go to at least one sporting game even if it's a little bit. In my opinion, they are a lot of fun,and even more fun with some friends by your side.

5. Go to some events on campus


Whether it's a musical, art show, homecoming, and so on. Attend something. Find something that interest you.

6. Join something


It's never too late to join something. There is so much that is offered on campus between clubs and orgs. There is something for everyone.

7. Enjoy the time that you spend with your friends


Because once you all graduate, you won't be able hang out every day or almost every day like you did during college. You won't get to see them often as you would like post-graduation. So, take advantage of the late night hangouts, studying the university center or library, going to get something eat, and so on. Your friends won't be in a three mile radius of you. So, enjoy it while you can.

8. Try new things


This is your time to try new things. Yes, you might get the chance after graduation, but it won't be the same. During college, you can go do things on a whim, or at least most of the time unlike in post-graduation where you will have a job along with other things and you won't get a chance to do as much as you want to.

9. You may or may not find the love of your life in college


Some find their love of their lives in college. Some don't. That's okay. You are in your early twenties. There is still a lot of time left. Trust me.

10. When you do graduate, remember to take a step back, and look at all you have accomplished


You graduated! Whether it took four, five, six, or eight. Who cares? You got that degree still. That is a major accomplishment. If you were in a sport, band, musical, club, etc... Look at all you accomplishment these past few years. Doesn't it feel good? You got through all the ups and downs of college and life. And you made it!

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.

Soccer, Spain and Racism
