School is stressful for every student. There is always a pressure of getting a good GPA so that you can get into your desired major. To keep your GPA up you have to have good study skills, and a really good work ethic. One thing that I lacked when I first started college was study skills. In high school I never really had to study for good grades on test but in college it is automatic that you study to get good grades. I think college has helped me grow as a better student but it has made my stress levels very high.
In the next couple weeks, I will find out if I got into my major or not. I am extremely nervous because I am a person that always has doubts about things when dealing with such a big decision in my life. I just hope my experiences and grades will show the ability I have to be a good student in my field. It is stressful knowing that if I do not get into my major, that I have wanted since I was little, that I will have to choose something I am not as aspired by.
Taking 19 credit hours this quarter is rough, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays I feel like I am at school forever. My first class starts at 8:00 a.m. and I do not get to go home until 3:50 p.m. I just hope I can keep my sanity and not go crazy knowing I’m at school all day long. It is stressful knowing that with 19 credit hours means a lot of homework and a lot of reading that I have got to do, just to make sure I get a good grade in the class.
