Hi, Lifestyle Speakers! I would have you know that not only pregnant women receive various advice when they are expecting, college students do, too. As this exciting time in my life is coming up, I have received various (mostly solicited) advice in which I’m so excited to implement in my life.
1). Choice:- This has being a recurring theme from my father to my former youth leader to anyone who actually cares. I’ve being told that as a college student, or as college students in general, we’ll be exposed to various circumstances that are abberations to us and with each situation comes a decision to always choose; to choose what is good and what is bad. To choose to stick to our morals, to choose to not forget our righteous roots, to choose to do the right thing at the right time; God has simply given us the right to choose-our freewill and we should exercise that right.
“This above all, to thine own self be true”- William Shakespeare
2). Upperclassmen Boys:- Yeah! If more than one college female student is warning me about this, I’d bet it’s true. A recurring theme is to be very careful of senior male college and male college students generally who want to “prey” on the innocent and naive freshmen girls. You guys! If you knew how recurring this was, you bet I’m about to take this advice.3). Time management:- As college students, we are given a lot of free time and even though I had a lot of people say this to me, I particularly remember my doctor give me this advice (Yup! I asked my doctor for college advice, lol!). With a lot of free time in college, it is easy to get distracted, hence, comes the choice; time-management is going to be very important especially without my father breathing down my neck to study, I have to learn to breathe down my own neck in order to encourage and motivate myself to study.
4). Join clubs and organizations :- All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Socializing is part of the college experience and just joining organizations, I’ve being told, helps students meet people who they share the same interests with outside of the classroom.
5). Don’t Do Anything You Know You Wouldn’t Do In Front Of Your Parents :- I think this also ties in with choice and I think having that mentality will help keep us grounded.
6). Study hard:- This seems such a cliché but college, I’ve being told, is much more different than high school with it’s rigorous level of education and studying hard and using as many resources as I find available to me is what I’ve being often advised to do. I will be paying tons of money for this sole purpose though, right?
7). Have fun :- Yes!!! Having fun, I’ve being told, is almost as much the college experience as attending classes, and remembering to do this is very important.

8). God:- “Hold on to God, and never let anyone convince you that he’s not real” A very special person told me very recently. Stay in God, keep reading God’s word and for me, despite the fact that I’ll be going to a public university, I should not forget to read God’s word daily, find a church, pray and stand firm in God and in my belief.
I absolutely love this advice and I am looking forward to strengthening my relationship with God despite unpopular belief.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and don’t forget to follow my blog to be the first to know when I upload again this Saturday. Have any college advice for me? I am absolutely willing and ready to hear your college experience and whatever advice you have for me; please comment down. Thank you so much and till Saturday, please have a great couple of days because I know I will!
