Time man.... it's a crazy thing. To think that just four short years ago I was graduating high school and venturing out to college, aka the great unknown. And now, here I am, a Bachelor's degree holder, absolutely done with my education. I could honestly sit here and write about these crazy yet unforgettable four years for hours but I'll make it short for you guys. If you're ever in a position where you're weighing out the positives and negatives about attending college my advice to you is DO IT! You will learn a tremendous amount of things and trust me when I tell you, it won't be only in the classrooms, the biggest lesson will be about YOU. This is the time where you face yourself, you're pushed to find out who you are when no one is telling you who to be, what you stand for and what you truly believe in. And yes, at times it will be stressful and exasperating but in the end, it's a beautiful thing.

Personally I made the decision to stay in the city for college and it was certainly one of the best I've ever made. Something about juggling school with "real world duties" such as a part-time (sometimes full-time) job helped me grow-up quickly and prepared me for everyone's favorite term post-graduation, the real world. I honestly wouldn't have had it any other way, and I definitely don't feel like I missed out on anything. I even had the opportunity to study abroad with my school, which is definitely one of those memories I will forever hold onto from my college years. 

All in all, what I want to say here is that whether you go half-way across the country or three train stops away for college, the important thing is to DO IT, I promise you, you will never regret it. And don't forget to enjoy the ride.
