A reflection of the semester
Students discuss different areas to search. Pam Belcher
It is hard to believe that the end of the semester is only two weeks away. It seems that everyone was just returning back from winter break to begin the spring semester.
The semesters always seem to go by faster than first anticipated. Once everyone gets comfortable with classes and gets in a routine, time flies by.
But time is not moving any faster than before. As students, we get wrapped up in school work, jobs and our social lives. Like many others, my semester seemed to fly by, but I wouldn't trade it for anything different.
I was fortunate to continue my work at Ram Page. I enjoyed creating a paper each week for our readers.
I was really stressed out at times with trying to juggle school and work. It is a lot to do for anyone who is in a similar situation.
Now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and know that I'll make it out in one piece. As college students, we know how easily stress can come. We are only students; we can't juggle a hundred things at once.
This is what I had to remind myself whenever I thought I couldn't handle the stress. This goes for anyone who might feel overwhelmed when it comes to school and/or work.
As students, we are here to learn, and we shouldn't beat ourselves up if we are not getting everything done in one day.
It is hard to not be worried about things that are going on. This is a normal feeling. I know that I worry about classes and upcoming tests. What student doesn't?
Aside from all of the stress that I've personally dealt with this semester, I am happy with how everything worked out.
I am so happy with the opportunities I received through my job. I will carry the experience with me to new jobs and even media classes.
In two weeks, summer vacation will start, and everyone's worries will float away. This is the positive to time flying by.
Breaks seem to get here faster than expected, and there is time to recuperate before heading back to school.
At the end of each semester, we should take time to reflect on and reminisce about the good times and the bad times.
This has been a semester for the books, and I hope that those who return in the fall are able to remind themselves to not stress and to only worry about the most important things.
