"You need to choose between social life, academics or sleep" These were the very first words our high school college counselor told me and my peers in senior year as she described the incredible college experience. All of us were instantly taken aback. Having to choose between academics, friends and a natural bodily function seemed absurd to us. Until that moment our young brains had not been able to comprehend the idea of being under a copious amount of stress and responsibility. Although in the height of the moment our grade tried to shrug such an idea away by laughing at it as a joke, I couldn't help but wonder how I would be able to handle such stress in a country so far from home. The idea of a university being another stress factor to the stress of traveling across the continent, to a different nation with a different culture, language and people was terrifying. That day, I went home and indulged in a deep dive of youtube's "self-care" section where I took down notes and decided to meditate, journal, and exercise every day throughout my college years To this very day, I am so grateful for the past me for making that self-care plan which has helped me survive in times where I would lose the balance between intense academic curriculum and the need to be a social butterfly to make friends everywhere I go. In addition to my self-care routine, I am able to defy my counselor's words of choosing between one aspect of college life through making a copious amount of pro and cons list, discussing and sharing my concerns with my loved ones, and choosing to do what makes me truly happy instead of what society expects me to do.
