If you ever wonder why I take so many pictures its bc I make videos like this when I procrastinate. I wanted to upload this video this morning while I was being sentimental, but it took two hours to compress on Youtube. Anyway, these last two semesters have been crazy fast and entertaining. I have learned so much about myself, and others, while studying at Criswell and I would never trade any of these memories.
Some of the many lessons I have learned are as follow:
You must study three hours for every one hour you are in class.
Living in an apartment means that when you leave dishes in the sink, you get roaches.
Loving and caring about and for others is a choice, and a risk willing to take.
It is okay, and necessary, to let go of friendships with those who drag you down.
Bible College has way more guys than a state school will.
It is important to have girl friends, especially when the guy/girl ratio is 8:1 (see above).
Just because everyone is getting married, doesn’t mean you need to be in a relationship, Paul didn’t get married so you don’t have to either.
Don’t burn yourself out.
Find out what you enjoy doing most, and do it when you think you are getting burnt out.
Always remember why you are doing what you are doing.
It’s not about getting a degree, it’s about learning the material and gaining life experience.
Your teachers care about you, and will help you if you fall behind.
Don’t do something you don’t want your professor to find out about.
Any small dirt that might be found on you will be found, if this is a youtube video of you dancing delete it… It will be found.
Don’t pull pranks, chances are the other person will retaliate, and they probable have the resources to steal your tires.
It’s okay to cry.
It’s not okay to cry all the time.
Finding others that will keep you accountable is a must.
Friends will come and go, but God will always be there to listen.
Don’t procrastinate, it will give you chest pains and you will have to go to the hospital.
You will have a hard time falling asleep some nights, and a hard time staying awake some days.
You don’t have to go to a states school and party to have fun.
Buy the warranty on your computer.
Don’t dye your hair purple.
If you do, get your hair fix professionally after.
Don’t dye over the purple hair.
Go see your teachers after you graduate.
Talk to your parents at least once a week.
Your younger siblings are still growing up, thus they still need you to be a role model and a key player in their life.
I am allergic to raw beef.
I love cooking for friends and family.
I work best under pressure.
Sunny days with a cool breeze should be taken advantage, when it comes to studying and writing papers.
It is okay to study with friends, but don’t distract each other, hold each other accountable.
Studying at other college’s libraries is useful if you don’t want to run into classmates.
Tattoos are expensive and require lots of upkeep
Lastly, take advantage the days of freedom that is college because it is the best time of your life.
