What should every freshman at your school know before they start?


If I could go back in time and speak with my high school self, I would give this advice: “Don’t let people control you. Not your family or your church. If you do, you will be misled. You will become unhappy and lose confidence in yourself.Don’t think you will never make mistakes. You will. So don’t bet everything on a single choice. Hold back; Keep your options open.Save your pennies. Eat right. Live as you want to live, where you want to live. Get plenty of exercise and pick up a sport like boxing or karate. It can help you dispel some of the negativity you’ve suffered in your life.Don’t let rage and sadness consume you; pick up the phone and just call the suicide hotline. Tell them you are hurting yourself. Tell them you really need help… even if it’s just someone to talk to.Finally, pick the path you want. Pick a job you will genuinely enjoy. Life will not be easy, but you can take comfort in having a job and hobby that satisfies you.”
