So the first time I have for you is Thio take care of your mental health and can get really stressful having multiple classes being in a new environment, trying to make friends Make sure you put your mental health first. That means knowing your limits, knowing what you can and can't handle. If four classes end up being a little bit too much for you, maybe try not taking four classes the next semester. Don't force yourself to do too much just to graduate. My mental health was really bad for the past year, and I did. I mean, as a freshman, it's gonna be kind of hard making friends if you're not there with people from high school. Go there, see if you find people that you want to talk to you like, say hi to someone asked A. Is a seat taking? Can I sit next to you? Hey, what's your major stuff like that? Just like icebreakers, I guess. Like, even if you didn't join the club, you still met somebody at the meeting and definitely try toe like exchange Social Media's because you can meet a lot of people from your school on social media and that, like that's really helpful. Like a lot of people will use their school hashtag with the year that they're graduating. That's a good way to meet people in your claws. So definitely get involved somehow, whether it be all social media on campus in class, just try toe, try to talk to someone, try to reach out to other people so that you don't feel so alone because, believe it or not, social health is really important. Social health and mental health are probably the two of the most underestimated parts of your college experience, and I learned that the hard way this past year because I was not very social, and I'm until help was really bad. So I'm telling you, Please take some time to have fun and to chill and to have friends because it is important that my third tip for you is to remember that college is not a race. Um, it's not like high school where you got four years to get your stuff done. It depends on who you are like Don't feel bad if your friends graduate early, or if your friend to graduate in four years and you're still a little bit behind. If some people don't graduate in May, some people graduate in December. It's not really like sentence don't like you have to graduate in four years. I'm saw post to graduate in 2019 but that's probably not gonna happen. I'm just saying most guys are ready to go there. Are the ready to settle down? Do they have a lot of stuff going on in life? Do they want to be locked down with a girl? One girl for X amount of time? Probably not, especially in college when there's so much to do. Um and you really fill in that guy, Um, don't rush. Just ride the wave, okay? Especially if you're really, like physically attractive uppers in Let me tell you something. Lust on Lee last so long So think about it this way when the lust is gone and I'm no longer physically attracted to you What's left? What's left for me to like about you one day you're not gonna be, you know, like a snack no more. What? What is it about you that's gonna make me pick you up instead of the fresh broccoli in the front row? OK, what is it about you that makes me want to stay here and continue to give you my time? Don't let lust get the best of you. Stay sharp up here, okay? Because a lot of guys just tell you right now, they're not ready for he know a serious relationship at 2021. Take that time to mingle and, um, talked to multiple people. I'm not saying a flirt with, like, hello people you know, get to know what multiple guys get to know what you do and don't like in a guy. Get to know yourself before you know, you really jump into a serious relationship. I'm until quite a few parties with my sister and I realize that they're not really my scene. I just can't I don't like parties, but I went out and I was able to, you know, get that experience. So now I know will step out of your comfort zone, try new things. Um, don't let people push you around and try to get you to do something that you're not comfortable with. If you don't want to drink, then don't drink. I don't recommend drinking around people you just met, because if you don't know how they act when they're drinking, you might end up in a situation that you don't want to be in, so make sure you know the person. Really? Well, if you do end up drinking around them sex, don't let anyone pressure you into sex. If you're not ready, if that's not something you want to do. If you ever wash me mean girls, you already know what I'm about to say. All your friends are not dead. Okay, so that's it for this video. If you want academic advice, that video goes for anyone. Um, it's on my Twitter asked me questions, guys, that's anonymous. If you have any comment down anything below that you want to say about college about if you're nervous or not, If you're about to be a freshman in college, good luck.
