Dear Holly, It's your future self and I expect you to listen. First off, get your butt into gear. As soon as you hit college and the idea of being in college your going to be behind mentally and emotionally. Things will be different for you but you'll adjust. As you grow through the next year or so, you'll understand what it means to not only be a college student but also an independent adult. Don't be afraid to steal chairs from a table so you can sit and attend class, haha. Stick to your studies because once you get into that groove you'll feel so much better about yourself when it comes down to getting on the grind. Remember to hold your head up as you walk the halls and do what you need to. Success is going to get you to bigger and better things in life and never forget that you have the Lord to watch your back. Don't procastinate, it'll get you into a bit of trouble with the homework you recieve. But most of all, have fun and enjoy these precious moments before your done.
