I have a dilemma. You see, I’ma a transfer student from unnamed school A to unnamed school B. My freshman year at school A was a piece of cake! I barely needed to study and all my assignments were pretty simple. All that changed when I transferred to school B. You see, I realized something. School A was a party school. We partied Thursday – Saturday and I still came out on the Dean’s List. Not that I didn’t work for it; the school just simply was a party school. I thought that was normal. Turns out it’s not.
School B still has lots of parties, but I find myself having study waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more. For instance, today I have not socialized at all. I have yet another Chemistry quiz tomorrow and since I failed the first one, I have locked myself in my room to study (except for to go to class). My room is a mess yet again because I am super dee duper stressed!
I am only allowing myself a few 15 minute breaks to check my facebook and write this blog. My brain hurts!
I think I would be much less stressed if I had been more challenged last year, but in a way I am grateful for the stress. It lets me know that I am at a great school that is actually teaching me something and I will be prepared for grad school. My teachers are wonderful (except for one but that’s another post for another day) and I really feel like they are helping me to understand things even my high school teachers couldn’t get through my head.
But alas, my 15 minutes are up and I must stick my face back into my Chemistry book and pray that I actually remember all of this.
