What I want from college

The first week of college is over and it's not all everyone makes it out to be. I'm not really into the partying or "finding myself" college experience. I want to gain knowledge but I do not want to change who I am. I like who I am and I like the way I see the world. I like the things I strive for in life, even if they are different or old fashioned for someone my age.

I want college to show me what subjects I enjoy learning more about. So far I only know, from high school, what I don't like: not what I do like. I think I want to, eventually, major in something in the arts but I'm not sure what. I want to minor in business so I can understand how to run my own business someday, but I don't think I want a major in it. 

Overall I want to gain knowledge, meet interesting people, and become the person I want to be. A knowledgeable, loving, artsy young woman that strives to be happy in her own way.

Love and Turtledoves,


  1. It takes a lot longer than a week to figure out your 'place' in university. I think you need to be open to the fact that, whether you like or not, you WILL change, even if you don't particularly want to 'find yourself'. College is an amazing experience, and learning is just a part of it. Let go and embrace the whole thing and you'll have such a good time, I know it!

  2. I felt almost the exact same way about college going in and in the beginning. I hated partying and I already felt that I knew who I was. College is awesome. It might take a little longer (it totally did for me) but I left my first year feeling SO satisfied studying fashion design and having the best friends I have ever had. Just enjoy it and don't worry too much about knowing exactly what your doing!


I'd love to hear what you think!
