Some Serious Advice & An Update

 Written by    January 8, 2014

This may come as a surprise, seeing as I love Ohio State more than anything, but I am leaving.

Now, now, now. Before you cry “blasphemy!” hear me out, okay?

This wasn’t an easy or expected decision, let me tell you, but it was one that had to be made. A lot of things jumped up in my life all at once, and moving back home seemed like a good option. Don’t worry, though. I am still attending school at the local college (starts on January 13th!), but Ohio State had to be put off for right now.

Luckily, I have an AMAZING blog director who is allowing me to stay with the Buckeyes Blog team, mainly for one reason:

This is normal.

Like the title said, I have some serious advice, and that is this: taking a break, switching colleges, or going home for a semester is normal.

I’ll be the first to admit that college is not always the bee’s knees. It isn’t easy, it isn’t all fun and games, no matter how much the stereotypes tell you that colleges are partying, partying, and more partying.

College is a huge skip from high school; no matter how prepared you think you are – you’re not! And, as I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, it’s an adjustment period that really does take some time to get used to – sometimes you never do!

Now, I’m not trying to scare you. College can be a GREAT time of your life! I just want you to know that you may have an ideal, a plan, or goals, and it’s okay if those don’t work out exactly the way you want them to.

You should know that sometimes, unexpected paths may lead you to unexpected places, but it’s those places that can change your life for the better! Trust me!

    Thank you for reading, Mike! You’re right. While planning is always a good thing, it’s also beneficial to remind yourself that plans are not always set in stone!

    It is really difficult to stick with the plan all the way while in college. I wish you good luck in your new beginnings!
