Past and Present

By Sydney Faison
On September 14, 2018

 
As I interviewed incoming freshmen, I reflected on my own freshman year. 
 
Now that I am a senior, I know a couple of things I wish I had known earlier.
 
I would go back in time and tell myself to not stress over every obstacle.
 
Avoid 8 a.m. classes. Freshman year, I should have started classes around 9 a.m. The extra hour makes a huge difference. 
 
I wish I could go back to freshman year and understand that it is okay to grow and reinvent myself. Now, I have adventures and try new things.
 
Now that I am a senior, I make it my goal to tell everyone to have an amazing day because I now realize how kind words and a smile can make someone feel better about themselves.
