No, we’re not calling anyone a failure, but I am going to let you know that we all hit rock bottom at times (it’s natural). Well… This week has been my moment to hit it and just stay laying down on it.
Thing is that in this beautiful week, I’ve had 4 tests and I have three more next week. So yes, I’m tired and I feel so stressed out that I can’t even handle it (hence the Sponge Bob gif).
This is me in college right now:
So this is how I’m dealing with it… I try to finish what I got, no matter what I have to do to get there.
Tell me how’s it going for you, maybe we can all just talk about it and find common sense.
Do you have siblings? If you do, wait for them to be in college with you (if they go to the same one you’re in). You’ll regret the fact that you have them.
You see… when you have a sibling and they end up in the same college as you, they might take the 7 AM classes and you have a 9 AM class so you’ll have to wake up at 5 AM for them because no one will take you at 8 since they went by 6.
If you think you hate your siblings… you don’t know hate until you get to that point. I mean, let’s be realistic… who loves when you’re sleep deprived? No one because if they don’t sleep… they hate. Why do you think vampires kill so much? They can’t sleep the night. (It’s a far-fetched idea, but an idea nonetheless.)
So please, if you have a sibling that does this, push him/her into reason (and try to save a trip to the hospital, they’re not fun).
This is super easy and I’ve tried it, making me feel like Clark Kent becoming Superman.
You see… I’m the type of girl that is a total good girl, but you know what they say about good girls. 😉 Moving on, I love piercings and tattoos, but I don’t have any of them on my body so I made a few fake piercings. I decided to wear one today and all of a sudden… I was Clark Kent, disguised to all of those who know me; just because of a piercing.
Guess what’s my super power? 😉 Studying at the last minute looking like a responsible student. I know, I know… it’s an epic power, but it’s very tricky. My Kryptonite is actually so stupid… it’s food. ;-; Just kidding! It’s procrastination. I know that it sounds stupid, but all of us, students, have the same weakness.
It’s our downfall, people! We literally stop doing work to watch a series or go look in the fridge for the twentieth time, admit it… it hasn’t changed in the last five minutes. So why don’t we do our work? Why don’t we finish it? Easy… we don’t actually care, and in those moments… We don’t pretend, we just let ourselves enjoy it (then we regret it and scold our past lazy self, but it felt right at the moment).
So let’s admit it! I definitely ended up changing topics and that’s my new power, also… we all have a piece of Superman inside us. All you have to do is discover it!
Don’t take this title literally because it’s not. You see, my university went into a strike that lasted two months, at least in my enclosure; I write it this way because Bing, who I’m not a big fan of, said that it was the correct translation and no, my first language isn’t English, despite your most probable belief… my main language is Spanish. Shocker, well… Not really, but I like to imagine you shocked; don’t ask why. Anyway, so it has been two months and all my academic motivation has withered up and died. Fun, right?
So now, we are finishing this whole semester in a month and a quarter. Talk about pressure, right? I’m sure I’ll be fine, but I just really don’t want to go and no, I can’t skip it. Why? Because I’m not paying for it so I have to keep my grades high and my attendance, sky high.
(Oh yes I did.)
Today was my “first” day of class and it sucked. You know those moments where you have studied so much that your mind will explode and you take a test and swear you’ve aced it, but you didn’t? That’s exactly what happened to me today. They gave me a grade of a test I did in April, want to know what I got? A C, the world sure is funny, but that professor is an asshole. He expects you to memorize so much stuff that you could go bonkers in a minute! I mean, he expects you to memorize thirty definitions that you have to write fully because if not, you get points taken away. I can honestly say that I dislike him with a burning passion. Thank goodness my other class was better than that one because I would’ve just thrown so many Legos at them and I’m not even kidding.
Moral of the story? If you found it easy and you think you’ll ace it… You’ll most likely fail so hard that you’ll forget your name and where you live. Good luck.
This is the post excerpt.
Yes, college is cool and full of new people. Yes, you learn a lot. No, drama doesn’t die. No, it’s not all getting drunk and partying. It’s super stressful, no matter how much weed you smoke or how much you do yoga. If you don’t think it is… just wait till you meet the b/a professors and your stuck up classmate; you think they don’t exist, but they do. College isn’t like High School… HS is like a purgatory whereas college is hell.
Remember… survive the wilderness and fight against all odds.
