Don't be afraid to explore new opportunities. If your path looks like it’s laid out perfectly for you, it’s not your path! You’re meant to forge your own!
Do EVERYTHING, try anything — healthy, legal, moral! Great time to do different things. Jump in, join activities. Assume all are new friends.
Never take Chicken Finger Wednesdays for granted.
… everyone trips on the horseshoe bricks, don't feel embarrassed when you do.
Go after a seemingly unobtainable goal. You never know - you just might get to graduate with big yellow feet. ;)
