The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
Why you, um I just completed my freshman year, so I wanted you a reflection about my first year at N Y. U. Um, I really like watching these videos from other people who make you two videos who are also in college. I have, like, probably ever in my life, which is really fun. Basically, ever since I know this sounds like really like dumb, but ever since I watched Gossip Girl in sixth grade, I had this, like, infatuation with New York City, and I knew I really, really, really want to go to college in New York City. You just have to say that you're fine when you're not really fine, but you just can't get into it because they would never understand During the first week was welcome week, which is a really fun and awesome because they have hundreds of events. Really cool fun events for the first coming for the incoming students. I you know, I met Darren, who turned out to be, like, really one of my closest friends here. So thankful we met and a lot of people I met just from my residence hall, which is Reuben like, I really love Ruben because that is how I that's how I became friends with, like, so many people, who I'm friends with her, who I was friends with, or even acquaintances with first month, like friendships like you don't have to be friends with, Like literally everyone. I mean, even still, there were points rise like, Oh, I don't have a friend group Which that was something I was really concerned about having like a friend group because I think it's really common for people in high school, too. I think college is a lot different that people are really willing to like step outside of their, you know, typical zone, especially in a school with N Y U that has, like so, so many different kinds of people. Yeah, I just want to say that really coming into Mou, One of my biggest concern was the social aspect, because I knew it wasn't like such traditional school. I also knew I didn't really want to go to, like, a super traditional like Rob like football games, like parties like type of school. So I obviously I really don't regret coming here, so But I definitely you know, it is a little bit more of a different social scene, I would say, but I think it's, you know, really the most You what am I think the vest, you make the best of it or you put the best. I do feel like in the first few months, I was like, really? Like I was trying to be friends live like anything with a pulse. I have, like met honestly from most incredible and inspiring and kind people who have just, like, really connected with and like I don't know, I'm just so thankful. It's like, really, really so thankful for my friends and acquaintances. I went from being a very sad being toe have just having a really amazing, supportive people and friends in my life. So as a film, major academics aren't really thing. Second semester took calculus, but yeah, those were the classes that, like had tests had that were, like, really worth agreed. Like I didn't really hate any classes, but in general, I'd like to my classes like professors. If you guys, I want Green also really happy because I got all A's this semester, so that's kind of cute. I want to talk about spirituality, religion really quickly. I believed in just my parents told me to, and in college I really wanted my religion to be something that was for me and something that I actually wanted to do, and I want to take control of. Yeah, I started going to church in, like September because they're invited me, invited me to this really awesome church that we will go to butt out of going to church and Bible City. I did meet a lot of really amazing people, became runs with a lot of awesome people. Um, and this year I really just learned to like, you know, praise God and go to God. Like I just learned that I've really really value time to myself. So I really I love being around people in the daytime. After a full day of like, socializing and doing work or whatever just being around people, I when I come back to my room, I just really wanted to be a space where I could be alone by myself, which I honestly didn't really have that. That was just an aspect I didn't really love about college, but I was kind of like well, you know what? You signed up for this, and I was kind of looks like I just have to push through it. It was kind of something that I was like, I can't really do anything about this. I want to talk about that out about college life in general, and it's like, kind of work slash time management slash like outside projects, going to school in New York City in and you there are really, first of all, really talented and really driven people here, and especially in a major where it's like, honestly, not very focused on academics. A lot of people are like crewing on like really exciting sets, or they're like directing their own thing or being the director of photography of their own thing, or they're like writing their show. It's like people are doing really amazing, really, really awesome things. So I think for a little bit at the beginning, I kind of let that compare something, get me especially being in a school where people are just doing really awesome things, like I yeah, like my fellow classmates are the pill in it, They really are. Honestly, the compared comparison is really the thief of all joy. Yeah, I just had a lot of like blessings and opportunities this year outside of school, which didn't really really lovely, But yeah, this is basically my reflection on my first year of college. You know, I feel like I've changed in a lot of different ways and matured a lot and really for the better. Is will be kind of funny to look back on in a few years from now, But yeah, I hope that you guys with this video and this summer, I honestly have, like, a pretty free summer, and I'm gonna be in New York, say, this summer, which I'm so so happy about and I really wanted just, like, create or content on here and really gave you guys and have, like, a relationship with my viewers. I think that's really pool and an awesome thing that you can do it. I really want to be making videos like crazy that someone like I just really wanted to be like a silver where I'm just like, creating a lot like those summers that I have, like super creative are just always the most fun for me.
