College Life struggles

If you have decided to upgrade the quality of your life, you need to invest in yourself and your capabilities, college is ideal thing for you. It is not easy to choose the collage, because college is more different and difficult compared to High school. You have to prepare for more intense learning, you have to be strong and determined.

Expect to experience many ups and downs, but that is part of life, also you will need a strong motivation, support and desire to get you succeeded. I write this article because recently i complete my graduation and during my graduation i always follow Greg Prescott’s blog and that blog contain inspirational articles about college life and struggles, i think college students get some article here according to their interest. One of the best article i read is “How To Balance College And A Social Life”

Don’t loose motivation during struggle

I’m sure that you heard the stories of your older friends or parents who are glad to talk about their college life experience, memories and stories, often you can hear something like – i would be happy to return to the time when i was in college, surrounded by good roommates and professors, college is part of life! The hardest year in college is certainly the first year or freshman year, you don’t know anybody yet, you need to adapt to the way of college life and things about college.



You’ll be your own boss, you have to well organise a day to finish all obligations on time, that is the biggest problem because if you do not organise day well, you will remain awake until late at night and that is not good at all. Try to meet a few friends so you can constantly hang out with them, so you will not fall into depression, it is very important to have great motivation to get things going well.

Balance between money and time during struggle

You must become independent, because you will not have day/night control of your parents, also you need to know that you will need a lot of money to pay your bills, food and books, so you have to figure out how to earn extra money and ensure your needs well. If you have a laptop or PC, try out your luck on the popular internet earning, beware of scams! Choose a job that suits you best and start to look for offers, you can’t become rich, but sure that you will make extra pocket money.

If you find a full time job, it can be good on the one hand and on the other hand it can be loose. The good side of this story is that you will provide money for your needs, and bad thing is – time problem, you will lose almost whole day and your studies are not going to wait, you need good organization. If you decide on a job like this, you will need to figure out how to get all obligations done on time, so it is necessary to have an additional motivation and organization of learning.



A large number of people due to lack of motivation and money decide to leave college, but this is not good at all, you must invest in yourself if you want success in your life, let it be the main motivation for success. The first few months are critical for all students, you make critical decisions that will affect the rest of your life. It is important to provide yourself rest period, you should be well rested for future challenges, the good thing is to connect with other students to help each other. Try to eat healthy food and sleep well, try to learn basic culinary stuff, because you will not have the help of your parents, if you become too depressed and isolated feel free to look for professional help.


Finish college is an incredibly good decision, so do not be afraid, When all this is over, you will be proud of yourself, and you will be happy thinking up all the days in college, think about your future, it is best for you!
