Hi everyone! My name is Sarah, and I run my own college lifestyle website called
www.acollegegirl.com! I cover a range of topics from college advice, to fashion, to wellness! Brynne and I linked up through Instagram, and I’m so stoked that we are writing a guest post for each others site. After reading this post, don’t forget to check out what Brynne wrote over on my site & follow us both on social media to stay in the loop with our day-to-day lives!
Today I wanted to share some bits of wisdom & advice I’ve received from my last two years of being in college. I’m lucky to be surrounded by a group of amazing girls who have helped me grow and strive to be the best I can be. One thing that I have learned is that it’s important to find balance in your daily routine and that you don’t need to do everything at once. I often find myself overloading my schedule & not creating enough time to take a step back and take some time for myself. Take a step back and prioritize what you need to do today, and what can wait until tomorrow.
I was talking to my best friend Lauren who I’ve lived with on campus for the last two years, and one important piece of advice she’s learned is to never do anything that you don’t feel 100% comfortable doing. Whether it’s going to a party or hanging with a particular group of people, reflect on how something makes you feel before proceeding. Also, on a different note, go to office hours! They can only benefit you and will help create a healthy relationship with your professor.
Furthermore, my friend Zoey said that the start of college is the perfect time to step outside your comfort zone and try something new! Club week is the ideal time to sign up for something new, and it’s an awesome way to meet new people. College is a whirlwind experience, and you won’t regret trying something new.
I hope these three little pieces of advice can help guide you through the start, middle, or final years in college. Do you have any advice for college students? Leave a comment and let us know.
P.S. Thanks again to Brynne for letting me write this post for your site, you’re the best!
