Have you heard someone say, "it's too late for me to go back to college, I'm too old now?" I've heard this plenty of times, usually accompanied by, "which is why I want you to go back to school." Trust me, I get it. It's scary watching someone do something you did that you now regret and wish you could change, so naturally you want to help that person not make your same mistakes. But, here's the thing: we're not the same people. Who's to say that if I never set foot in another college I'd end up as a nobody at a dead-end job? Who's to say that if I never went back to college I wouldn't be able to run my own company and create something amazing? Who's to say that if I never went back to college I wouldn't have a good life?
I've been trying to eat a lot healthier lately to just get generally healthy and lose some extra weight. With that means trying to make healthier options for my boyfriend and I and this has been our favorite quick, easy, on-the-go breakfast! It’s a healthier (and just as easy) version of the instant oatmeal packs you can buy from the store. The difference here is you know exactly what’s going into it and you know that the ingredients are things you can feel good feeding to yourself and family!
So, what's the deal with girls trying to rival other girls? I don't mean that question to be entirely rhetorical, I'm genuinely curious. I've never understood the whole "I don't like you, so I'm going to be passive aggressive towards you and give you backhanded remarks, but still act like I'm nice so when you call me out I can act confused and say 'I've been nothing but nice to you!'" logic.
I regret going back to college. There! I said it! I think I've just figured out in the last month that college isn't for me. Being in an overly structured environment where I can't think freely or be free just isn't for me. And I know that sounds like whiny millennial privilege, but it's true!
