I know I am not the only one (probably just about all freshman have this realization), but about the second or third week of school, I started to realize that I do not know anything. I don’t know about anyone else, but this was a hard realization for me because I am the kind of person who has always succeeded in my classes, in sports, and in other activities. When my first grades were posted in Jupiter Grades, two things hit me; one, college is much harder, and two, I don’t know as much as I thought I did. For example, I grew up in church and thought I knew a good amount about the Bible, but I was very wrong. Just a few classes in Old Testament showed me that fact. There is a whole world out there to discover. This is one thing I have learned since I have been here at OBU.
My point for all of this is that you are not alone if you are feeling like this. I am sure every freshman here has or is learning this right now, plus every upperclassman has been through this, as well. So that being said, do not let this get you down just because you either feel alone or feel like you don’t know anything. As humans, we are constantly learning and growing throughout life, so it is perfectly normal to feel this way. All this means is that we can all learn so much more here at OBU and in life afterwards. Life would be boring if we already knew everything, don’t you think?
Hang in there and keep your head high. Success is coming your way if you just keep working hard.
