The problem I had was prioritizing. You have a lot more free time in college than in high school. But you think you have more free time
than you actually have. And by November of freshman year, you’re behind. I don’t know anyone who wasn’t behind. You tend to forget to study when you first get here. You have parties, freedom from parents—you almost forget that
you’re in school. Freshman year, people would go to 60 to 70 percent of classes, at best, because you would stay up late and then miss morning classes. You almost forget how important education is. You worked for 12 years to get here, but just because you’re here, the work doesn’t stop.
