The Mirandable

I've have always believed that life has so much to offer, so why not do the things you love and the things that scare you? I love to create and I am also terrified of putting myself out there, but it's the little things that make life memorable. This is my outlet to simply be me, put to also use my outlet to bring knowledge and awareness to the things that matter most to me. Please, follow along my journey of self-exploration, travel, college life, mental health awareness, and so much more. 

Transitioning Into College

If you are reading this, I assume you have either graduated high school or are about to soon! Firstly, welcome and congratulations! Graduating high school is a HUGE milestone that everyone should be proud of. However, there are challenges with transitioning into college, especially if you didn’t have guidance from your high school… like me. But don’t worry, I am here to help and give you the best advice that I can!


Some Tips to Help You Out:

  1. First things first… take a second to breathe and take it all in! You have started a new chapter of your life and you deserve a second to sit back and feel excited, nervous, happy, or whatever emotion you may be feeling.

  2. Don’t overload yourself with credits!! A lot of new college students overestimate how much work they can manage during the first semester, so I wouldn’t recommend overloading yourself with credits, especially if you stress easily.

  3. Don’t be afraid to ask for help!! When you get into college, a lot of the time you lose the personal relationship between teacher and student. If you are falling behind and are struggling, don’t be afraid to as for help. There are many resources available to you, such as tutoring and academic advising, don’t be afraid to use them.

  4. Talk to classmates & get their numbers! One thing that helped me get through my semester was talking to my classmates and getting their numbers. Once you build at least one relationship, you immediately have a study buddy and someone to ask for help. Remember, they most likely need the help too!


My Advice to You:

  1. Make time for yourself! It is so easy to lose yourself when you are starting something new, so make sure to make time for yourself every once in a while. Do things that you love and don’t forget that your mental health is essential!

  2. Join a club! Something I didn’t do in my first year of college was join a club, and I kind of regret it. If you join a club, not only do you get to meet new friends in a new setting, but you also get to do something you may be passionate about.

  3. Don’t forget about your loved ones! Your loved ones are the people who are going to keep you sane, make time for them when you can. Go out with friends and relieve some stress. Call your family and talk about plans to see each other again (if possible).

  4. It is okay to not know what to major in! Sometimes we don’t know what we want to do or what we want to be, and that is okay! Figure things out slowly and don’t stress about it too much. Remember that everyone has a different timeline.


I hope these tips and pieces of advice help you transition into college a little better! If I could I would do things differently, but I can’t, and that’s okay. I am glad to have learned things the hard way, and share my information with you!
