Life as a college student can be very overwhelming but yet very exciting. Everyday I am constantly worrying about making the grades, turning in papers, and getting my dates straight. For someone with short term memory, that is the overwhelming part. So here I am. I am a sophomore in the Fall 2012 semester here at Western Connecticut State University.
I am writing this post from the "fish bowl" which is a lounge right in the middle of the West Side Campus on Mill Plain Road. My class, Introduction to Criminal Justice starts in just 35 minutes. I'm nervous because we are going to start to review for the final exam which is at the beginning of next week.
I'm cringing, and screaming inside, anxious and helplessly hoping that I do my best and pass all my exams. There is the pressure at home, Mom wants me to get all A's and B's this semester. No C'd, D's, or F's. I have taken a year off from college, because I transfered from Norwalk Community College. I'm glad I took that break in between but, yet it is still hard to get back into that routine.
But luckily for this writing, it helps me clear my head. I am excited to go to class but nervous for the review for finals.
College is bittersweet.
