Summer classes are officially over *insert a hallelujah here. * Although that does mean the fall semester is just around the corner!! If you’re like me, you like to make a good first impression, so you want an outfit you can dress up or down with understated chicness. This outfit is a great example of just that!
This top has been one of my favorites this summer because it’s super comfy and affordable. I love versatile pieces that I can get my money’s worth from. I wear this to work, to class, date night, church, you name it, put on some jeans or a simple skirt and it’s day to night with ease.
One of the many things I’ve learned in college is to avoid procrastination. I know all teachers say in high school, “You can’t do your work/study all in the last second and still get a good grade in your college classes,” and it sounds like a broken record. At the end of the day, they are so right. In most cases, all procrastination gets you is a mediocre grade and high stress. Especially if you have a job, you want to make sure you get your work done ahead of time so on your days off you’re not stuck doing assignments all day!
Another reason I’m really excited to begin USF is the opportunity to get involved! If you’re just starting college, this is really something to consider. Whether it’s at your college, church, philanthropic organization of your choice, do something fun! We all need something to balance out all the work we do in our everyday life for some stress relief. Since my community college didn’t have a whole lot of extra curricular options, I am super excited to finally start expanding my horizons in this area!
Finally, the best tip I can offer for back to school is to study your Bible. I’ve grown so much spiritually in this year more than any other. If you’re a Christ follower, I feel like it is essential if you’re not already serious in your study, to start. You meet so many people from so many different backgrounds and world views, it’s important to have a firm grasp on your own, so when and if you’re challenged on your beliefs, you can speak intelligently and with conviction. Also, when you have questions (or even doubts, that is okay!) to dive into the Truth and Godly council to seek your answers. It’s always better to seek wisdom from what we know to be eternal than any theories of man.
Those are the tips that have really been beneficial to me this past year and I’m so excited for the years ahead. This has been a really big year for me in my personal growth and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store. Stay organized, stay healthy, and stay in the Word! Don’t forget to get involved so you can get the full college experience! I hope you all have a great school year no matter what grade/semester you’re entering! How did your last school year go? If you are starting college in the fall, what are you most excited about?
