B, let me tell ya.
If you’re motivated, focused, organized, and you keep your shit together, you can literally do whatever the fuck you want. You can take that passion you have and make it a career. You’ve just got to be ready to work really hard.
On the other side of this, you will be able to drink/party/have sex/do all the things that were taboo in high school with (mostly) complete freedom and autonomy. Be wise about it though.
You will also learn so much about yourself, your body, who you are, your limits, and probably question where you fit in the world x28028 times.
High school feels SOOOO insignificant to me now. I barely even think about it. And I fucking HATED high school.
The fact that I can say all those things in confidence and I’m only 20 years old is a good sign. Get good grades in high school and be good!
i’m going to be such a cut-throat student this year
i’m going to sit first or second row, right near the prof so i can hear everything clearly,
i’m going to read my textbook and readings religiously (or try anyways)
and get super into the material because that’s the #1 way of being successful in a class tbh
i already know i have profs that slay a bit so i’m excited
i’m gonna always look 100% sharp and everyone will think i’m a masters student bc i’ll act like i own the classroom tbh
I think it really depends on which program you’re looking to go into. That being said, in terms of overall experience, I would most DEEEEFINITELY recommend UVic. I think Victoria is a really good city to do your undergrad in, and it’s one of the best schools in the country for sure (especially according to Maclean’s).
VIU though…like if you’ve ever visited Nanaimo you would understand. It’s a very small city, there’s not much to do. I went to visit during a festival and didn’t particularly enjoy anything in the downtown area.. like the beer garden for the festival was 3 tables HHAHA I could never live in a city like that.
But I mean, if you find a program that just really DOES it for you at VIU or UVic, I would follow your educational instinct, if that makes sense.
I’ve attended both Carleton U. and UVic and between the two, UVic is so much more ahead of its time.
I hope whatever I had to say helps a bit!
