Part of being a 20 something, I find, is realizing how quickly your values and thoughts can change. Every few months, I end up reflecting on where I was six months ago and can’t believe the kinds of thoughts or fears I used to have. If I look back even further to the things I believed at 16, it’s almost laughable.
Ever since high school, my dad has always told me that high school teaches you how to learn, but college teaches you how to think. Once you know how to think, learning continues no matter what. From my first day of class all the way up to graduation, I soaked in every bit of knowledge thrown at me. Sometimes, I think I could’ve kept going for years.
