Level complete

Incoming freshman think they know how to survive college and how to pass every class without a challenge.

Please! I can promise you that no one knows what stress is waiting for you.

Yes, at freshman orientation they tell you that you have to set aside like 30 hours to study and you are just thinking ARE THEY CRAZY?

Yes, I remember thinking that and thinking of how I would balance my time. Of course, I came up this genius plan. I would study the week before the test and start brainstorming the day the essay was assigned.

I thought this was enough and I had already mastered the challenge of college. Man was I wrong.

Finding time to study for exams was crazy, especially when all your professors decided to have their exams on the same day!

Also, trying to brainstorm for essays was not that easy when I had up to three essays that all had to be three pages long, sometimes even longer!

My freshman year, I spent most of my time trying to motivate myself just trying to get the first page done and writing them a couple of hours before they were due.

As for exams, let’s just say for the spring semester, I had no sleep at all. But, I survived.

I learned that college is a whole different world than high school, but it is a world that I would not change.

One thing that they are right about at orientation is that in college, you find where you belong.

I found my own little perfect place behind a screen writing about new clubs, student issues and just ranting about crazy drivers.

Also it is okay to procrastinate, watch Netflix and ignore all responsibilities because that is what keeps us sane!
