Since it’s been a while, I guess it’s time for an update on how stressful school really is. No matter how many years you’ve dealt with it, it certainly doesn’t get any easier. But then again, it’s not supposed to, is it?
Here we are in week four of the spring semester and I can almost see the finish line. But looking at what’s ahead, I feel like the finish line might as well be in the middle of the ocean and I have no boat. This (academic) year has gone by so fast, but there are still twelve weeks left. My motivation is: Spring Break is in a month, then when I get back from that, finals are only about a month after. I’m so close to being done with this year, but what lies ahead may end up being an even bigger feat.
When classes end in May, summer classes will be right around the corner. Then the fall semester will start again. But then, when classes are all done and the degree is in the mail, what do I do? I can’t live at home forever. What if I don’t get a job? Do I just bum it up and live off of my parents until I’m thirty? Yes, this is all very drastic and yes, I know there is still plenty of time before I have to cross these bridges, but I’d like to be prepared.
Until then, all of us college students will still be chugging away and working hard towards a degree that will hopefully turn into a job offer someday.
