One thing you wished you would have known as a freshman: I wish I would have known to prioritize my happiness because it is just as significant as other aspects of life such as academics or work. It's okay to focus on self-care and fun sometimes. Life doesn't have to be all work and all academics. Balance is key and the balance between the two varies from person to person.
