As of today being a college student isn’t so bad. It’s now a new quarter and its time to start fresh, and leave all the stress from last quarter behind me. Most of my classes this quarter aren’t too bad, and besides being broke life’s not to bad either. All my friends went back to school also so now I’m not as distracted to go out with them instead of doing my homework or studying, which is good. Sometimes its hard to do the right thing when you have no one there to tell you what to do, I still live at home but my parents pretty much let me do what I want. They don’t get on me about doing my homework because I’m a adult now I need to make my own choices.
It’s not so bad having to make my own choices I learn a lot about myself, and I have really grown up a lot since I’ve started college. In high school I would of chose going out with my friends without even thinking about if I had homework, or needed to study. Last quarter I struggled a little just trying to get use to everything and adjusting to the college life. I think I have a handle on things now, and I like I’m going to make it through, even though there were times when I thought I was never going to be able to do that.
I’ve met some new friends at Newark, which also makes my life a little easier. I’m from Grove City which is about an hour away so I don’t know anyone. I also commute which makes it harder to meet new people because I’m only at school for classes then I go home. Making new friends have helped me get to know Newark a lot more and have taught me some things about college that I should know, this makes my life a lot easier.
This is all I have to say about my life as a college student and my struggles that I encounter every day. So ill will let you know a little more next week!
