12 Things I Wish I Would’ve Known Before College

Freshman year of college is fun and exciting. You’re finally away from home and completely on your own. It might seem like a scary thought at first to some while thrilling to others. I was a mixture of both when I went away for college. I went several states away where I didn’t actually have cell service my entire time being there but I loved it as I was on my own having the adventure I always wanted.

So four months ago, I went back to college after four months off to continue on with my Bachelor track. But during that time, I got promoted at work and took on more responsibility.
