Any of you been feeling very exhausted lately? Not enough sleep? Well don’t feel like you’re the only one! Lately, well today, I really noticed myself becoming extremely exhausted with classes and the work to do all in one day in order to save free time later on. To me, however, it’s due to having an 8 a.m. class and going to sleep at 1 a.m. so I didn’t actually have enough sleep. Even writing this blog down, I am very tired, but I want to share how a normal college student feels throughout the semester. I especially feel this way when I know I have so much time in the day to get through so much work solely due to the fact that I wake up for an 8 a.m., so I try not to nap since it feels like wasting perfect time for later.
I know that this is how I have to expect to do my work and handle my schedule since this is how I built it. I wouldn’t argue about it, although some college students complain to the extreme and wonder why. We all are learning how to build our time management. I have had friends who flunked because they did not handle their time wisely, especially in the end of their semester last year. Now this makes me feel good and bad to be quite honest. It means I am working hard on my time management but also realizing that messing up would feel like a tragedy for me. I would dislike being behind and missing due dates as much as anyone else. Being a business major, I know I can’t be missing any due dates in the real world. The struggle is real.
I encourage everyone to really go take your classes seriously and find out what is going on in your classes. Due dates mean do now and don’t wait. You won’t regret it if you try and make time for yourself and have time for others later with no work to worry about. There’s nothing like the feeling of having no homework and papers due for longer than a day, until your professor decides otherwise.
