something i’m not proud of

I’m not proud of the fact that I did the bare minimum to get by. It’s not something I like to talk about – it’s honestly embarrassing to me. But prior to that, I honestly didn’t realize someone could make their way through the system with learning virtually nothing. I draw from my experience and mistakes to try to offer insightful advice that will help you get the most out of your time spent in college. (Continued).

I am by no means saying degrees are pointless. If you are fortunate enough to go to college like I was I think it’s important that you get the most out of it you possibly can. Seeing people I know approach graduation that seem to have taken nothing from college makes me nervous. College will suck tons of money and time out of your life – get the most out of it you possibly can and it will 100% be worth it.
I understand that this may not be possible at all schools or in all majors (yours might be really prestigious or have super high standards), but I feel like generally speaking the vast majority of us can relate to this situation (we’re not all becoming doctors and engineers).
