Waiting

large

“The longer you have to wait for something, the more you will appreciate it when it finally arrives. The harder you have to fight for something, the more priceless it will become once you achieve it. And the more pain you have to endure on your journey, the sweeter the arrival at your destination. All good things are worth waiting for and worth fighting for.”

The Truth Is

large

“I think you have to understand that just because there are prettier people, you are not ugly. And maybe there are skinnier people but you are not fat. And yes, maybe there are smarter people, but you are not dumb. And the truth is that somebody’s going to love you just the way you are, and it’s not going to matter that there are prettier, skinnier or smarter people. Because to at least one person, you’re going to be absolute perfection, and they’re going to fall in love with you. But before that happens, don’t be afraid to fall in love with yourself.”

Happiness In a Nutshell

“There are endless reasons to be happy like when you discover your new favorite song, when you stick your head out the window when you’re driving downhill and the wind is hitting your face, when you’re cuddled in blankets watching The Breakfast Club on a Saturday morning while it’s pouring down rain outside, when you’re simply breathing this very second. People tend to forget everything they have and focus on what they don’t.”

Routinely Frustrating

Routines….

Organization….

Time Schedule….

Each of these topics have zero relevance if you are a full time student in college. Your scheduled classes are the same but the amount of work your professors decide to provide you with changes about every .5 seconds.

One milli second you’re free to do whatever you need to get done, write, paint, watch netflix, go shopping, go get food, and the next, you have 8 papers, 3 speeches, 4 presentations, and a discussion post due by midnight.

I have tried so hard to keep a routine going and have as much organization as possible but when I have so much work come out of the blue in a class when I still have another project to worry about, your routine is about as relevant as cat leashes.

So unnecessary.

I’m still on the verge of creating the perfect schedule that will allow me to get everything done while working around my random events that come up.

And by random events I mean work, and if a friend wants me to go get food with them cause you obviously don’t pass that up.

I wish this article was an advice post on how to get better at organizing and working around a schedule that is very unpredictable but it’s almost a cry for help hahaha.

I need to start using my planner more and understanding that deadlines are not optional..

Also, need suggestions for an indestructible alarm clock that is literally going to shake my entire apartment building to get me to wake up and stay up. I’m a freaking rock in the morning, there’s no life there.

As much as I love the unpredictability when it comes to life, school, is a different story. It’s frustrating having these deadlines that creep up so quickly when you’re working on a project for another class. These professors need to realize we have like 5 other courses to worry about that are trying to compete for the most attention as well.

It only puts more pressure on us and only allows us to work with what is to get done right this very second. Don’t even try to think ahead at your future cause you’ll miss 5 assignments that were due yesterday.

I do get that when some people have more time on their hands they don’t spend it the way they should but that’s their choice. There are plenty others (me) who need that time to figure out what they want to do with their life in the upcoming years and realize what I need to do now to guarantee that that goal becomes a reality.

Chasing your dream doesn’t happen overnight and for sure doesn’t come easy. It takes time, effort, and motivation. All of which college takes away from you.

Most of us only have time to think about calculus, what time we work, and what we need to get done thats due tomorrow morning.

I. NEED. TIME.

Once the time passes and it’s wasted on us doing pointless busy work for our classes to keep our grades up, we’re only getting older and getting closer to the day we are off on our own, making our own decisions and going to a job everyday we want to love going to.

What if we get out of all this busy work mess and we realize it was all for nothing?

We didn’t understand the consequence of not taking the time to sit down and think of our future and what we really want it to be like. This is why so many of us graduate in a degree we don’t even want to be in.

So dear professors,

          Please give us more time to find ourselves and help us to understand who we are so that we can take classes that our relevant to our interests. You don’t really want to grade those 1000 word papers about the industrial revolution anyways.

Sincerely,

         Indebted college kids who don’t have time to learn about the quadratic formula
