My second to last quarter in college… I can’t believe how fast my school year is going!! This is crazy; I am literally still trying to settle into things; I haven’t even fully unpacked everything in my room!
I am currently in the midst of midterms and papers and I have been so exhausted. I miss summer! I’m doing well in some of my classes, and not so well in the others. I find it difficult to get motivated in the classes that I am not interested in. However, I have several that I do like and they have my full attention! I don’t think I have senioritis yet; at least I hope not!
On the bright side, I’m so glad that I finally turned 21! I’ve been able to do so many more fun activities this school year, especially because most of my friends are over 21. I hated being the youngest out of all my friends last year because it limited my ability to go to the same places they could. Hopefully I survive this week because once Friday hits, I can finally relax!!

We are more than halfway through the quarter. Boy, time is flying by fast! I am finished with my first wave of midterms and I must admit that I completely forgot how stressful and exhausting studying can truly be. I also realized that I have a hard time functioning with less than six hours of sleep!
This wave of midterms really emphasized the importance of effective studying habits. What I have learned is that I need to continually stay on top of my school work so I can avoid cramming. Also, I have come to realize that the famous quote, "You can sleep when you are dead!" may well be true, but getting a good 7-8 hours of sleep at night is great if you want to maintain your health, sanity, and good grades! And finally, a healthy breakfast truly does wonders before a test and helps me to better focus. Skipping breakfast before an exam only makes me think of food!
Even though I am a senior, I find that I am still learning and refining my study habits. College life can be tough, but it is all about time management and maintaining your health.
Now I look forward to relaxing and watching my favorite TV show tonight, to be followed up with a full eight hours of sleep!
