I made the biggest mistake of my life when I saw that line dividing ‘casual’ and ‘falling for you’ and decided to cross it. I saw you and loving you and threw myself into a game where I didn’t know the rules and was ultimately destined to come in last.

I want you to remember: Change is hard, but it not a bad thing. College is meant to change you, you are not going to come out the same person.
You’re going to have to fix shit. Yourself. You’re going to be elbow deep in a toilet tank thinking … ‘this is my life now’

Own up to your mistakes so that you can own your successes.
Living a life of worry and nervousness because you are concerned about what others think of you rather than knowing that only you can be in the best position to look after yourself.
