Making the most of Your Life

May's just around the corner and you got to make your decision before that. You have family, location, cost, education, fun, but most of all your future to factor in.

Where do you want to go from here? It all depends on you actually. Your actual school won't make a difference in letting you reach your dreams. If you're diligent enough, you'll be able to find opportunities in the emptiest of places. So what kind of person are you?

At Berkeley, we have all the opportunities you could ever desire. Med school? Pharmacy school? Environmental something? Or you don't know? Then you better come here, because you'll have all the opportunities you need here to decide if the future path you want to be on the the one that is actually right for you.

I'm not saying that it won't be hard. It will be hard. Count on it. There's 5000 other people in your class, and a lot of them have the same dreams you have. A lot of them will be putting in 1000x more effort than you. If you thought you were good in high school, think again. Yet, what's the purpose of going to an "easier" school and misleading yourself into thinking that you're actually good. It's better to come here, find out that you aren't the best, in order to work with the best in getting better.

Sleep. Study. Social Life. As they say, pick two of the three, but I think you can actually get all three if you just learn to time manage. The first semester, do as much as you can, cuz that'll be your easiest semester to have "excused."

Berkeley's not for the people who want things handed to them. We make things easy for you, but the problem is, we have so much going on everywhere, that you'll need to sift though our plethora of opportunities to get to what you want.

Anyways. For me. It's my last semester here. I'm finishing up my four years. I spent my third year abroad in Japan. This August, I'll be going to medical school in Missouri.

I reached my dreams through Berkeley. I'm sure that you'll be able to, too.

Best Wishes to you Class of 2013. =) Too bad I won't see you around. I'm sure you'll do fine.
