# MARKETINGAnother skill that comes very handy in college is marketing. As brutal as it sounds, even though you were the topper in your high school (admired and respected quite a bit), you will just be one among the many in college. You will find that there is nothing great about what you’ve achieved (and everyone has already reached that level).
# SLEEPYou can never say “sleep” and “college student” in the same sentence (unless you’re talking about the lack of the former in the latter’s life). Especially for those who are determined to make every assignment perfect, there will be times when you will have to choose between one extra hour of sleep and a perfectly done assignment. In the beginning, you might have some problems adjusting, but very soon you will be used to the perpetual situation of not enough sleep.
# MARKSScores are something you will have to stop caring about after you enter college. Of course, do not expect the excellent marks that you used to get in school (or else you will be disappointed). As you get your way around, you will realize that marks do not matter. There are numerous cases of people who were not the toppers of their batch but are now successful in their respective fields. Also, there will be times when one of your friends, who did not even care to know which class was going on most of the time, will get more marks than you (I know it’s unfair, but this is the way it is and you can not do anything about it).
So go ahead, live a bit more, laugh a bit more, dream a bit more cause college is the best time to start actually living your life.
