Second Semester Classes

It's been less than a week and this semester is already kicking my butt! I didn't just hit the ground running, I hit the ground sprinting - but I'm really out of shape so I'm just sweating and trying to keep up!

Okay... That may be a tiny bit dramatic...

Every semester, I always feel really overwhelmed right from the get-go. I think it's because the professors all go over the entire semester's worth of work that we're going to go through so we know what we're getting into. I always feel like it's too much - that I couldn't possibly be able to do it all.

One of the main things that I've learned while being in school is that there are a whole bunch of people who are willing to help. Professors, Teaching Assistants, Tutors, Advisers (they're not just for finding the right classes), as well as other students. Some of the best help I've gotten has been from people sitting near me during a lecture.

At this point, the weather has also been playing a big role in everything... I didn't like snow before, and I really don't like snow now! On my very first day of classes, I fell twice going downhill because the snow whisked my feet out from under me. Now, if that wasn't embarrassing enough, after hitting the ground I slid the rest of the way down the hills on my butt! Seriously! Later when I walked back past one of the hills I fell on and slid down my big butt mark was still there. It's a good thing no one can tell who you are based on a skid mark from your butt in the snow.

My roommate is still the same... Still as crazy as last semester. You can click HERE if you want to read up on all of that drama!

Even though this semester has me feeling really stressed and exhausted already, I'm really happy. I'm happy to be here, and to be studying what I love, and to be able to work hard to achieve something worthwhile. Although, it would be nice not to worry about money so much - but such is the life of a college student!

Have you gone back to school yet? What have your classes been like so far? Let me know in the comments! I'll see you on Tuesday.


  1. I hope you didn't hurt yourself skidding down a hill. I have gone back to school, things are a bit different in England, we don't use the word semester, I think semester is what we call a term. I hope your classes continue to go well and you don't feel too stressed!

  2. I didn't get hurt, but my clothes were soaked because of the snow! I hope your schooling goes well too :) Stress and school seem to go hand in hand, but I think I've been doing well with it so far.
