Okay, so today and in my car, I have my phone and we're going to be having a little college chat. So today's video is gonna be all about advice that I would give my freshman self or give you buzz if you guys really Frenchmen in college. It was How did you know that your school is the right school for you. So the story is I didn't know that my school is right over me until three weeks before school started. I don't even know I wanted to go to college until, like senior year. It was also complicated cause I just didn't know what I was looking for in a school. Then I started to, like, narrow things down about what I liked about certain schools, why I did it. I like schools that are involved in extracurricular activities like I like when they have, like, a football team or they have like athletics, and they have a lot of clubs, and I like that They have Christian organizations on some campuses, so that was just like some things I thought about to narrow down my choices. Then when it came to, like, find out the right fit for school for me, Ultimately, the way that I made my decision was God, because I also chose this one school for just not the best reasons. The reason why I shouldn't have chosen at school and I did it for the wrong reasons was it wasn't cause I like the school comfortable there or like I could really see myself there was because I was too scared to go to any other school because I thought it was my best chance to succeed. Right before I left for that school, I just got really anxious and I was like, I literally cannot go to that school. I was looking at three a Christian schools and Liberty was one of them, and I didn't think it was an option for me to go to liberty. This is your will for me to go to look pretty, make it really know, like, allow me to go to this semester because it's not like I'm gonna look other schools and I don't think liberty will be the Christians will end up. Then I spent an email asking if I could still, like, go to their school. Even the school's about to start in three weeks, and I'm sure all the crosses and the housing and everything was closed. There's housing and classes open and then literally within the next hours, off for school. So it was so easy that I just kind of knew that I was the right school for me and then being there on campus, too, and like no other people I know having experiences I've had, I definitely see that it is the right school for me because I feel like it is my home away from home. It is because a lot of people will find out that the school is not how I thought itwas or it's not a good match or they won't teach the major. So this one is really funny because I honestly need to hear this before I went to school. Ah, lot of people expect just because you're in a college campus and everyone is an adult that the boys were 70 like, 10 times better than like marriage material. A lot of the boys that you knew in high school are so going to your school and just like you, they really haven't changed yet. You only haven't seen them for a few months and they might not be the same boy that you went to high school with. They're still the same maturity level, emotional awareness and sensibility as high school boys. I'm not saying that there aren't really great guys on campus, but I'm just saying that especially as a freshman, the freshmen boys were still very similar to high school boys. My days here was not making any friends or not feeling like I fit, and I have like a preconceived notion of how my school was before I went there. Also I was like, I don't have just not used to making friends in high school special. In college it's just a complete fresh new star. I didn't really know anyone at my school that, like I was friends with the new people. Especially a college people are so like welcoming to friendships. So that was something that definitely went away when I went to school. Even though you attended Christian University, do you still feel any social pressures of college? Oh my gosh, Yes, people have this misconception that just because of the pretty is a Christian college doesn't mean that we don't have college issues is called stressful. Why? Because your bosses move really fast but is really fun. You all have, like the freedom to do a lot because you're not like working full time jobs and you're in school. I know a lot of schools don't have the best moving process. You can always read the rules, understand what you're signing and agreeing to by going to that school. Like so many other great colleges you could be interested in. So I got a few questions on how to stay motivated, workout and also how to eat healthy on a college campus to answer your questions. That was something that was an adjustment for me, because before school I was begin and then I stopped being begin when he came on to college campus because it is very hard to be begin. It is definitely possible it may be challenging if you're not gonna time management or if you have other extracurricular activities and things that you want to do outside of work in school, I do recommend, though your first year released her first master. Incoming freshman has given you some peace of mind and answered a lot of the questions that you have about college.
