"Go make friends, do things you enjoy, and it's okay to stay in sometimes."
At the beginning of my D1 year, I was always worried I wasn’t studying enough because I felt like everyone was rushing to go study for something. I had to give myself permission to take breaks and separate from my school work. Sometimes that’s hard when a majority of my friends are stressed about the same things. I can tell you for sure that imposter syndrome is real and I was confused how or why I got here. Just took me a little bit to reconnect with the rest of my life again and get into a rhythm. I think that’s important, I couldn’t wait to start living when I’d be less busy. So my advice is take some time for yourself. Go make friends, do things you enjoy, and it’s ok to stay in sometimes. Also, don't be afraid to butcher your plastic teeth. I've ruined more than I can count.
