Congratulations, you're a college student! For the first time you have free will to spread your wings and lead the life you want... even though you're probably not sure all that entails or exactly what's headed your way.
Think it's too short to waste on repetitive thoughts and actions? Tired of the treadmill? If you're driven to distraction with the same old stuff, want to be a doer not a viewer, earn rather than only yearn excitement... here's your chance!
Don't give up because life is different or harder than you expected. Just alter your expectations and plans as needed and expect that to be part of the process. After all, it's not so much about reaching the finish line as it is a matter of developing your skills and abilities and doing your best.
