I’m fixing to go to college. What’s something important to remember about getting out there in the world on your own for the first time? Also, good luck with your job applications!
I’m so excited for you! Going off to college is such a magical and special time. For many people it’s the first time they are away from their family and friends, the first time they get to make all their own decisions. Want cookies for dinner? YOU HAVE THOSE COOKIES!
But college is also a lot of really hard work. It’s long hours both in and out of the classroom and there’s a lot of pressure to succeed… and I want you to succeed… I want you to work hard and get the skills and education necessary to make your dream come true, but if there’s ONE piece of advice I can give you, one thing I’d want you to remember, one thing I wish I’d done differently… it’s make sure you have fun. I worked tirelessly to get “straight A’s” but let me tell you, no one cares if you got an ‘A’ on that math test or a ‘B’ they just care that you have the diploma. I missed out on a lot of fun by staying in my room to study for test that have zero barring on my life right now. I missed out on making memories so I could make an ‘A+’ instead of an ‘A’ and I don’t even remember what class it was for. As I said, My Darling, I’m not telling you to slack off. It’s important to work hard in school and get good grades or you’re just wasting your time, but if all you do is work you’re also wasting your life. Have a wonderful time, Brittany, I’m always just an email away if you have any problems.
Till next time My Darlings!
P.S. Beware those student loans! They’re like signing your soul away!
There is a guy I really really like, we went out a couple of time, and I enjoy being with him. I think he enjoys being with me. But nothing happened. He told me he was focusing on his work. I really think I am the one for him and he is the one for me.
What can I do to make it happen?
I am so afraid of what could happen if he rejects me and that it breaks our friendship.
Can you help me, Wendy?
-BLEU IN NEVERLAND
If only we could make love happen! Life would be so much easier then. If we could just point a magic wand and yell, “ACCIO LOVE!”
But unfortunately that’s just not how life works…and to be honest, love wouldn’t be as magical and special if it did. All you can do is respect his wishes, stay friends, and see if things change naturally…BUT don’t put your own life and heart on pause waiting for him! Keep both open, you never know where or when love will suddenly appear…just like magic.
Till next time My Darlings!
I can’t seem to get over a guy that I really like. I know he doesn’t like me, but he only knows of the over-achieving nerd everyone makes me out to be. I just wish a.) he let me have an honest conversation with him, or b.) I’d get over him.
It sounds to me like the way to get over him is to have that honest conversation with him. Right now you’ve got all these feelings and thoughts inside you, and they are going to stay there until you let them out. It won’t be easy to tell him these things, I know, and if you feel like you can’t do it in person you could always write him a letter…but in the end you’ve got to do what is best for you and your heart and that’s letting these feelings out. Please let me know how it goes!
Till next time, My Darlings!
