    I would tell myself that I should go to New York for college. The first college I went to wasn't for me, and it may have been tough, but it would have been great to start out in New York. I was afraid since I hadn't lived anywhere but Kalispell, but it really would have been a great experience. I'm going there next year, however, it would have been nice to have been there all for years. I would tell myself not to be afraid and that I could do well whether I was at home or across the country.
