After graduating high school, the majority of teenagers nowadays choose to continue their studies in college to attain a bachelor’s degree. There is no question that education is essential for our future careers.

During this letter, I will talk about the first mistake I have made as a freshman, ways I manage stress through a busy college schedule, and how my viewpoint of nursing has changed.

Imagine when I was a child I wanted to ride a bike,but I was afraid of falling so my parents added training wheels then when I was older they took them off I got on it without the trading wheels and I fell I hurt myself pretty bad I didn 't ever want to go back on that bike again but my brother encouraged me to do it so one day I grabbed the bike and I got on it and forgot all about the fact that the training wheels were off I rode it and I didn 't fall from that day on I rode my bike and I 'd fall here and there but I kept on doing it till I didn 't anymore if I 'd never gotten the courage to
I admit it, college is a scary place. It can be intimidating and even overwhelming at times, especially to those freshmen with bright eyes and a lack of coffee addiction. I get it, I was there once.
