If you’re anything like eager ol’ me, you are probably starting to contemplate your next big step in life: What University will I go to? What will my major be? Do I want to live away from home or will I commute?
I know, overwhelming. So let’s take it one step at a time.
First of all, take a deep breath. Have faith in the famous saying, “Everything will be ok. And if it’s not, then it’s not the end.” It’s famous for a reason!
Educate yourself!! I cannot stress this enough. Listen and ask questions when University representatives visit your high school. Take the initiative to go to events like Fall Preview Day (Brock’s is November 2, 2014!). Talk to friends who are already in University to get their perspective. Book campus tours to determine whether the school in question is the right fit for you. Read blogs (like this one!) to hear from the student perspective…
Keeping an open dialogue is what will help you reach the decisions that you seek. As long as you are doing that, you will see that the rest comes easily. So keep calm and carry on, my friends!
