As a student who just did her last semester exam and completed her first year university, I am over the moon with excitement. Summer vacation has officially begun. Looking back, I still can remember how confused and shocked I was during the first week. Even though I was happy to meet new friends in a new environment, I was struggling to get used to the system, and after months, I slowly started to adjust to the university life.
Studying at the university has taught me so much, and I am sharing with you some of the things that I have learned.
The advantage of being an organized person means less stress. Using a planner and making a to-do list has helped in keeping track of things and staying on top of my heavy schedule and running things smoothly.
Studying in bed is a bad idea, at least to me. Before I started at the university, I could spend a Sunday afternoon or evening studying in my comfy and warm bed. Truth is, I was not productive at all. Being in an environment that encourages me to study helps in avoiding distractions and be more focused.
Learn to cope with failure
Failing an exam or things that we do in life to many of us is not something that may not come naturally. Thing is, we all strive to be good in everything that we do, but when we fail, life seems unfair especially when people around us are happy enjoying their success. Talking with people who truly can support us through such moments and finding out where it all went wrong is very helpful rather than keeping a distance from everyone. It’s okay to feel devastated and ashamed but it’s important to pick yourself up, learn from the mistakes that you made and try it one more time.
I have met so many sweet friends and despite everyone having a different personality, I love spending time with each of them. University life can be stressful. Being social is not only a stress reliever but also a great way to learn people.
Thank you so much for reading and talk to you super soon, again.
