Writing Prompt 25: College taught me . . .

Prompt: College taught me . . .

College taught me that I'm still not grown up. There are many ways to write an essay, with the creative way being only one option. People will change, and you can't really do anything about it. Support isn't necessarily a bad thing. Some teachers care about their class, and some don't. Time is precious. Life is writing. Life is learning. Some things aren't always what they seem. A budget is a good thing. Some people grow up, and some don't. Some things can only be learned through experience. You have to find balance between who you are and what is expected of you. You can't make everyone happy. In order to stand on your own, you have to believe in yourself. Presentations in front of people are not really optional. If you get a meal under 10 dollars, it's a good day. You should enjoy your major and be proud of it. Getting involved in clubs are not required, but they do have lessons of their own. Studying is done best with chocolate and music ;). You do need to make time for yourself, even if it is only five minutes. Teachers take classes too. You can learn a lot about yourself, just by reading and exploring a story. The more entertaining you make your day, the easier it is to get your work done. Patience is very important during your last semester. Everyone has to find balance between educational and personal life. There will be classes that will challenge you, more than academically. The older you get, the more you reflect on memories. The choices you make determine how useful your education is to you. There are a variety of people out there. Each person has a fear, goal and dream. It's okay to take things at your own pace, you don't have to be like everyone else. Do what you love, apply what you've learned and do your best. You must find your own definition for who you are. College taught me how to manage my time, take value in what I read and work hard towards my dream.


  1. Being grown up is optional. You have grown by leaps and bounds Sarah. You are still learning and so am I. You never stop learning or growing. You have become very wise where others will never achieve wisdom. I am very proud of you. You would never have written this if you did not grow, learn and become wiser than before you entered college.
