What's up, Haley? I have no idea how I'm gonna go out the studio. You're not mad about it? Because I feel like, you know, if I do ramble, it's completely okay. It will probably be things that you know or were the rambling about, like, be around. So I'm gonna kind of go off with my little sticky notes for friends. So we should do that and I'll get back to you guys directors with each little piece of advice I give you guys, it's gonna kind of be abroad under standing like what I'm going to say after that, somebody is about balance. That is a lot of one of the one that's really the one thing that most people going into college are afraid of is are they gonna make friends And you know, how are they gonna make friends? And I know that some people you know, when you're in college and you get here until exciting and then you get in this lonely slum where you're like, I feel so lonely and even when you're surrounding yourself with people, it could be so lonely. Then you're even lonelier whenever you're with people. I think I know that opening up to people and becoming completely vulnerable in transparent with someone is what's going to create a strong friendship and what's gonna actually make you connect with people and feel loved and have a nice community here. I even like, you know how to find friends in general could be an issue. You know, I went the recruitment even though literally not until a month before I went to schooI. I was not gonna do recruitment at all. I I was like, Why not? Why not at least just go through it? And then I ended up making my three best friends Margaret, Olivia, Bella And then I also went to like his club, this political club thing meeting just so many clubs that you could like get to know and all that. I did meet people through that, and I was just like, you know, you just at least know about the campus and what's going on and just you know how you can get involved in, like you can obviously find some that you may like. So I did that get people's numbers for my classes and I would actually reach out those people and be like, Hey, do you want to study for this? And they made so many friends like I have a whole group with Coco Ivy and all of them where I met through my classes and then I casting throughout who is now one of my very best friends, where I am inseparable from. So by getting out of your comfort zone, and I know that's easier said than done for a lot of people. Yeah, definitely my first semester, because I even though I've had an amazing experience so far with this school of oil and like with these people here who I love so deeply, so deeply, I had like, a rough part, I think, like a rough patch. I think it was in October where I was so lonely and I felt so by myself, and I just was so disconnected and, you know, during those times it is, it's important to step back and not force yourself to do certain things to also not let yourself delve into this hole for too long that and you're, like in your room and you're cooped up all day. I mean, yes, you can taken advice, and you could you could remember that for whenever you're going through this stuff, but you're going to go through it, you know, and you're gonna come back to these cities and you're gonna You have to learn for yourself because we all think differently all different brains, well structured differently, and we're all very complex and the way we think, and so you cannot go off with other person what another person did and think that's how that's gonna work for you because I mean, yes, maybe some parts of it will. You know, I understand how, like eye right now and still undecided. I am taking I'm exploring classes, but I used to I get in these freak outs where I'm just like I don't know what I'm gonna do with my life, but I want to be its actress. I'm also in YouTube, and I know I'm also I love I love psychology, sociology. You know, I'm not in school too, just like you know what I mean. I'm gonna take it in the appreciative of this opportunity and, you know, explore what I can and, like all of this other son, learned when I can take in all that, I can just use this time tonight absolute advantage. So it's not just in my head and I'll listen to these people. Then also after I'll have I'll take self care, you know, I'll take care of myself. How do these things? Because I've learned over time that this is what helps me and I know it will help you guys. I mean, unless you have it, you know, moved out of the house. Unless it's, you know, this is like, just like the normal, um, the norm. You are You're having to adjust to a new place if you're moving out of state out of the city or just anything, you're having to adjust to the location around you to new people and seeing people every day and also having to adjust to living in the same place of where you go to school and having to find balance and realize how much you could you spend with your people and how much you spend by yourself and where you work. You know, you bring up that type of when you do work and play time and all that you were having to change so much in your life already that you cannot expect yourself personally to not change. You're gonna grow from these things and learn from these things and take it. If you go with it and you let that take over you and think of it as a positive thing, then that's what's gonna bit of vehicular. That's where you're gonna go places because you throughout your life you're gonna be changing. If you're not keeping up with this and you're not being okay with it and what I think most people get confused about is when we change as people, which is always a good thing, because I'm sorry. Um then you people think that everything the people in your life change and that's when the problem comes. Let me just say one thing I invest runs the same people are best friends with back home. Maddie does remind those air Still my people, you know what I mean. You know what I mean? Like that's going to continue toe hat and then also with content, not No one said anything negative about it. I also love this because if you're positive energy, positive friends and like that's why I love to see because I know my constant changing. I think that's what's so important, because I was, you know, back in high school I was like freshmen software, maybe even a little bit.
