    I'm a freshman in college

    and I'm on my second semester. During my first semester I was super motivated and determined! I got wonderful grades and passed all my finals. However, this semester I'm doing horrible. I'm failing most of my classes and I'm beginning to panic. I have slacked on my schoolwork...

    the Title Says It All...

    I will be a sophmore this year, and I'm a math major.  I have to admit, I'm not sure if I like it that much or not. I've met amazing people, I love the university itself, and the teachers are great, but I feel like something's missing. Other than that, to me it often seems...

    It's back to college

    after a short summer and I'm already having a terrible introduction week. They make you think you've paid for everything already and then hand out bills with extra expenses! They also decide we all have lunch at school, but we all need to bring, make, pay it our selfs. At first...

    and I'm just now hearing that my two year program might take longer!!!!!! I'm so mad! I feel like I was lied to. I might take an extra semester to finish. I'm not okay with that. I wanted to save money by going to community college then transfer !

    This college work is no joke.

    When I was in high school a teachers syllabus was like 2 pages. Now I have teachers in college who have syllabi 13 pages long. Ughhhhhh I can feel the procrastination starting to kick in.

    I hate the community college

    that I am attending. I took two semesters off just to figure out if I want to return or find somewhere else. If I leave I would have to move to another area. The community college doesn't care about their students, helpless, judgmental, and unorganized.

    Almost everyone goes to college

    because it's necessary for them to get a good job. I go for the same reason but at the same time I go for myself because I genuinely love learning. I love doing anything that's mind stimulating and going to school fulfills that need for me.
