Taking a spontaneous trip to SD tomorrow, even though I’m not mentally prepared to leave my family yet, because I don’t know when the next time an opportunity like this will come for me to be driven there, housed, and have my best friends show me around. And I’ve been wanting to go for a while, so I’m excited but bittersweet too.
"Don’t play games with people, because you’re essentially setting yourself up for failure. You’re seeking for answers when you never gave them a chance to know what the question is in the first place."
Definitely an interesting read, and a testament to how the cookie-cutter way of achieving success may not always be optimal for everyone. While I have been lucky enough to be a Psychology major and learn things I consider valuable and relevant to my everyday life, I agree that when I walk away from college, it won’t be the coursework but the experiences and the opportunities that my university presented that will have changed me the most.
