During my summer internship, I can’t even remember the number of calls, meetings, and appointments that my coworkers had with others. Everyone who called or came into the office always seemed to need someone—except me.
My freshman year was not long ago, and I can relate to your worry. However, I believe it’s possible to worry less about starting college if you don’t put so much pressure on yourself to succeed.
I sometimes wonder if I’ll ever do something important with my life. Will I ever get to achieve something valuable or attain true success in my career? Or will I be stuck at a desk, doing filing and answering phones for the rest of my life?
Last week, we discussed three of the greatest fears of future college students. But most incoming college students have more than three big college fears, so I’m going to discuss a couple more today...
To be honest, I feel like soon-to-be college students have more than three fears. I had lots of fears about college. (But if I wrote about all of those, this post would be way too long!) I think we should focus on the top five fears that future college students have. Maybe you have some of the same fears I did...
As I write this post, I am preparing to go back to college. I had a lovely break of doing absolutely no homework. I spent time with my family, attended my church, and hung out with my friends. I cooked meals in my own kitchen, showered in my own shower, and slept in my own bed. I enjoyed being home. But now I must return to my home away from home—the far-away land called College. And I’m not ready.
