Despite all the tests, quizzes, labs, papers, and final preparations that you are going through right now, there will not be another time in your life like this. You will not live so close to so many friends, sharing such a unique living space again. You will not change and grow so much as an individual in such a short space of time again. You will not find new interests, or have the time to pursue them, in the same way you do now.
You will not be this young again.
You will not have health, the future, youth, and time all on your side (at least simultaneously) again. Future self, you have the entire everything at your fingertips. You are so blessed for this; so, do not sqaunder your Time. (“The stuff life is made of” as Benjamin Franklin said.) When you work hard, work hard; it will come to fruition sooner or later. And when you play hard, play hard. Ignore the messages outside of yourself saying “value life”; find your own inner truth - the reasons you want to make so much of all that you have.
That said, and returning to my present self, I would like to point out that I am single-handedly bringing back the peace sign. The previous phrase has significant mileage in nostalgia and puns. Furthermore in the next week, I will be performing experiments on guppies, and then analyzing the results using some statistical test. The fact that applying stats to this inane study is supposed to make it valid disturbs me.
One more thing: there will never be another time in my life that I have to pay 2 dollars per load of laundry - ever.
