This is probably the first week I’ve really felt the weight of college classes. It seems like everyone is having a hard week, full of tests, quizzes, papers, and outside stresses. The library seems more than crowded these days (I should know I’ve been there almost everyday!) My week has been pretty stressful—here’s just an insight of a typical college week.
My week has consisted of freaking out about my major, which I think for now I am sticking with History. I went to see my advisor, and she told me that I was “just a baby” and shouldn’t be thinking so far in the future. This just made me realize that I have the freedom to choose my classes for next semester! I went through the UD Catalog and chose breadth requirements that I want to take in Spring, there are so many amazing classes here.
But the main part of my week has been my research paper! I’ve been sifting through these five books for the past week and a half to write my 10 page argumentative paper on why standardized testing is detrimental to education. I went to the library again today with my friend Caroline for 3 hours and took a picture (seen below) from the third floor, East Campus is so pretty! (looks even more beautiful when you’re walking around)
I’ve just been trying to not freak out about all my upcoming projects, quizzes, and books I have to read, which is usually achieved by me giving myself “me” time at night—I only do homework during the day, which makes for a long day, but that’s alright because time in college flies by!!!
I’m so excited for Thanksgiving to go home to Chicago and see my friends and family! But until then I’m going to enjoy UD’s campus during the fall!
