Sometimes you get lost on Instagram, clicking on links, stalking strangers... and most of the time it leads to nothing... but last night it lead me to this girl Addie's post for college freshmen. There's something about the way she wrote it that to me, is perfect. Just trust us on the Sunscreen. [throwback reference for us old folk]
Hey college kid going back (or to) school, I can only imagine the slew of emotions you're feeling today. I don't know which category you fall into- excited, nervous, scared, worried, elated, happy, anxious, joyful or a mixture of all of the above + more. But I do know this: you need to enjoy every damn emotion you feel and every experience you have- today and for the rest of your days as a student. Because, before you know it you're going to have a picture just like the one I have here- wearing a cap, gown and the biggest smile you've got. And from that moment on, your life is going to be different. It's still going to be great, rewarding, hard, and sometimes ugly- but most importantly, it's going to be different in ways you won't anticipate So, enjoy every damn second you've got. The good, the bad and even the ugly. Enjoy this time in your life for the single fact that it's never going to be like this again. .
