The time is finally here–the second wave of midterms. As a freshman, studying for these exams has probably been the hardest thing so far. I can’t seem to concentrate because all I’m thinking about is the next time I’m going to see my friends. A lot of upperclassmen advised me to work on my time management, but I still can’t seem to get my priorities straight…yet.
Taking exams in college is the most different aspect for me. In high school, so many college students told me about how amazing college was and how much fun it is. While I have experienced the “fun” part of college, I didn’t expect it to be this stressful either, mostly because it actually matters now. I know..”you’re only a freshman, you have time.” I’ve heard that countless times in the three months that I’ve been here, but what people don’t understand is that I actually want to work hard and do something amazing with my life. I’m not saying that people who don’t study can’t do anything amazing, but this is just from my personal experience.
So, I just wanted to say good luck to those who are studying for any exams! Study hard, don’t stay up too late, and stay positive!
