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.
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.
