    This is really good advice and though-provoking too. Thank you for sharing. It’s dope you lived in Japan too.

    I am a university student too and I really enjoyed reading your experience and that little bits of advice. I surely wanna read the part 2. Can’t wait for it. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜Š

        Your welcome. Actually I am in my second year of my course currently but it’s been quite amazing and I feel university is a place where you get to learn the real things of life. (what you should hold on or what you should let go) ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿฅฐ

        Lol yup it really is! Gosh I miss that time, but I think I like life a whole lot more now because obviously I was a lot more immature and didnโ€™t know what the heck I was doing! Iโ€™m glad youโ€™re enjoying ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I am one of those university students that you follow haha! I love your point about responsibility, a lot of university students do partly live out of parents money!

    Why were you living in Tokyo? I love the point you raised on just because you do not like something does not mean you should not learn it. I cannot relate harder. Haha! And I told my sister about work – to take it easy because once it really starts, it is all she would get. Awesome advice in all, and you do not sound like a boring lady at all. More like mature lady who has figured it out, at least most of it.

      Aww thanks Micah ๐Ÿ˜Š Iโ€™ll take the compliment! Good advice you gave your sister … I dunno what it is about earning money that makes sacrificing our free time so enticing! Do you have regrets besides not learning some stuff?

      • Markus + Micah says

        I suppose it is the unreal promise that we can do all the things we want later once we have the money. But that never happens actually. I do not have regrets, sure I could have done some things differently, but I am not a fan of regret as an emotion. It is something you carry but it does not serve you moving forward. Better to use whatever it was that did not go right as inspiration to be better than regret it. What do you think?

    • Shelly DS says

      Forgot to answer your question lol! My dad was working there and I was a minor so I went with him. By the time he left Id started university and decided to stay

    Totally agree about taking math!!! If I could do it over I would take those โ€œhardโ€ classes I spent so much time avoiding. I would also try out other majors…see what else seems interesting!

    • Shelly DS says

      I see we both have regrets ๐Ÿ˜… Just remember that all the blessings in your life Most likely wouldnโ€™t be here if you chose a different path ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wow it’s really cool that you lived in Japan- I’ve always wanted to go there even if it’s just for a few weeks to visit! As a university student I totally agree on all of these especially about saving for something special. I always try to save wherever I can so that in the end I can use that money on something I really need/want.

    • Shelly DS says

      Thatโ€™s great! Iโ€™m so glad you are way more mature than I ever was ๐Ÿ˜… you def have proven that so many times. Thanks for reading ๐Ÿ’–
