Last Year’s Advice

Katie Wick

GREELEY ” When I look back at my graduation and the party, I remember all the cards I got that day.

They all said wonderfully encouraging things, but I don’t think any of them said the two words that would have probably been the most appropriate: Good luck!

College has been wonderful, but there are some things I could have prepared for better. For instance, laundry is not easy! I don’t own a pair of socks that aren’t pink now.

I wish someone told me that saving my quarters would come in handy around the end of the month. And if you feel like a change, $4 hair dye isn’t the way to go, especially if you can’t afford to get it professionally fixed.

But like it or not, you learn as you go, and that’s what I needed to be told a year ago.

Two things that need to be said out loud are: Don’t be afraid to mess up. It’s going to happen and more than likely you will laugh about it in the years to come, unless there were already people laughing at you when it happened.

Don’t be afraid of change, either. That is one piece of advice I have reflected on a lot as I face new decisions every day.

So I guess I would just like to say to the new grads, good luck, save your quarters and love your mothers!
