Is there anything worse than a reminiscent blog post that starts with a huge cliché? Like “hindsight is 20/20” or “carpe diem” perhaps? The answer is probably yes, which is why I’m going to talk about having “no regrets” about my college career.
Everything. Yes, everything has shaped me to be proud of who I am. Every decision, every experience, and every mistake molded me to be a better person. The thing is in order for you to learn something you have to do something. Becoming involved in Greek life, holding positions on exec boards, and participating in events like PhilADthropy were all chances for me to learn something about myself. These are the times where you become self-aware and understand how to conduct yourself. One of my biggest takeaways from college is that it’s not all about what you know—sometimes it’s who you know.
I feel my Senioritis coming on so I will leave you with the following. Keep the big picture in mind and you’ll be fine. Making mistakes is something we all do, but it’s only valuable if you learn from it. Use this time to grow, understand who you are, and chase some dreams. #NoRegrets
