I have truly learned how to prioritize in college. It took a while, but eventually I figured out how I work best, how I plan best, and how I can get the most out of a week’s worth of homework and studying.
When taking upwards of 14 units per quarter, life can get pretty busy and studying can be very daunting. It is so much easier to forget about work and even stress about it than to actually buckle down and get it done. But I know that by focusing, making to-do lists constantly, and refusing to stay down on myself for too long, I can always end up doing well in school.
I am going to miss college…but I am definitely not going to miss the stress of it all. Still, there is something so rewarding about checking off things on my list one by one until the quarter is over and I finally have a real break—one where I don’t have to worry about any homework whatsoever. Life is already good, always, but it will be even better in a few weeks.
