Take action and spend time doing things that YOU enjoy. 

Ask yourself- What could I do with my life? 

Failure is a huge part of life. It's ok to fail, and you will. Accept it. 

If you go for your dreams, it might not work. But what is it does? 

This is bigger than college - this is about your life.
