As you probably know (I’ve talked about it a lot on this blog and on all my social media channels), I’m currently abroad for a semester in England. I can hardly believe that I’ve been here for a week already! I feel like the week has flown by.

I know studying abroad can be a scary experience, especially the first week. Studying abroad can be scary. You’re thrown into a brand new environment where you know no one. You will be disoriented.

I can’t believe that in less than a week (5 days to be exact!), I’ll be leaving for my semester abroad in England (!!!!!). Yes, I am completely freaking out.

I have to admit that I was afraid of hitting publish on this post. Why? Because while I enjoy chit chat posts (they’re actually my faves!) and they seem to have turned into a thing in the college blogging world lately, I feel like they are sort of filler posts. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s awesome that some bloggers are turning it into weekly series, but in my case, I just seem to resort to those posts whenever I don’t have anything to write about, which has been the case lately. My life just isn’t that interesting!

But, I also realized that it had been nearly a month since I had last written a life update (my study abroad one doesn’t count), so I thought it wouldn’t hurt to update you guys on what has been going on in my life lately.  View Post

It’s crazy how time flies. It just hit me that I’m leaving for my semester abroad in the UK in 28 days. That’s 4 weeks! It’s all a little crazy.

I was talking to my friends the other day about college and being completely out of inspiration when it comes to blogging content when one of them suggested that I write a post about things that I wish I had known before starting college, now that I was a senior. Then, it hit me. I am going to be a senior. My years at university have been such a blur! It feels like just yesterday that I was embarking upon this great journey that is college. I can’t believe that in less than a year now, I will be a college graduate. I feel like I still have so much to learn and definitely don’t feel ready to get into the workforce.

But still, I have learned quite a few things during my college years, and I thought it would be a great idea to share my wisdom with you. 😉 Also, I remembered that my friends Gabby and Hannah over at The Swirl wrote a similar post two years ago and they inspired the format of this post.
