How Time Flies and What Lies Ahead


Brandi Ortiz, Fiction Editor

Many students across campus leave things to the last minute. The future should not be one of those things.

Jobs applications do have deadlines, since stores aren’t always in need of new employees, and colleges expect applications on time or not at all.

Time is everything because we don’t have all the time in the world. There are always deadlines, places to be, and people to see. That is reality.

Don’t wait until papers stack on your desk to begin your work, and don’t leave it to others either. There is no problem in asking for help from a parent, teacher or friend, but do not expect them to do all the work for you.

Learn how to manage your time before it’s too late. Avoid the dreadful tear flood of stress and mental meltdowns. Start looking into what the future offers, what jobs are available, what courses colleges provide and how each choice will affect you in the coming years.

Don’t spend hours on the couch or on the phone when your time could be put to better use. Time yourself, set an alarm, whatever helps you achieve maximum levels of time management. Create a rhythm that suits your needs and daily lifestyle.

Everyone has their own style. Everyone has a dream. So it is our job to seek it whenever we can. Our future is what we make it.

We’ve all made mistakes in the past, but those mistakes should not define who we are or who we choose to become. Any mistakes made should be seen as life lessons, what to do and what not to do. Life is a journey full of flaws, turns, twists and opportunity.

Don’t ever expect life to be handed to you on a silver platter. You’ve got to work for what you want in life. Use your time wisely and prepare yourself. It’s never a true dream unless you’re willing to fight for it.

Whatever happens in the past stays in the past because it is the future that is ahead.
