As a high school student, I was always in love with the idea of being a college student. I was ready to live the college life to its fullest potential. The idea of getting more freedom, making new friends, and maybe even meeting my future husband always excited me, but I realized that college was not all fun and games. It’s a huge responsibility. Thinking that my whole life depends on one degree freaks me out so much. The transition to college has been so hard. There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t second guess my choices. “Is this degree for me? Can I make it out?”
The transition to college has been so hard. There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t second guess my choices. “Is this degree for me? Can I make it out?” I am lucky to have my family with me to support me through everything. For the first time in a long time, I finally broke down crying.
Having to read more than 100 pages daily for my classes is not easy, plus I’m taking 18 hours and I’m a double major in Early Childhood Education and Biology. They are two completely different majors which are hard to balance out. Biology is kicking my butt. Tuesdays and Wednesdays I at school from 9 AM to 9 PM. I am not even going to lie I sometimes forget to eat because of how stressed out I am or because I have too much work to do. It’s not healthy at all, but I have to do what I have to do. My whole life I got A’s, and I thought I knew how to study, but I had figure out the hard way that what I did in high was not working out for college.
Being the oldest child, the pressure is intense. Hearing my family brag about me everywhere we go tears me apart because I don’t know if I can do. I know I have to be the example for my little sisters and that’s the motivation that keeps making me push myself through all the tears and stress.
No youtube video, blog post, or person will help you make college easier for you. College is all about balance. Everyone has different experiences and it is up to YOU to make it work out. Just remember you get out what you put it.
I’m still trying to find out what will work out for me, but I am not giving up anytime soon. On the bright side, I am back to blogging full time (every Monday and Friday), and I have so many fun posts coming up!!!
