Second Year

Alexandra Tuttosi | Contributor

You might think I’m Free or The hard part is over! Well, I’m here to tell you, your journey has only just begun. This is the year when all the chaos that is university begins. You’ve over the hill that is first year. It’s too late to turn back now, you think to yourself as you walk into your first class. Seeing your fellow students and the teacher suddenly doesn’t seem as scary. As you take your seat you feel a sense of relaxation. But then comes the syllabus and all that relaxation goes away. You think to yourself, This is the year I’ll get good grades. This is the year I’ll try new things, maybe even a club or two. This is the year that I’m going to be me.

As the semester goes on you realize that maybe having a fun university experience is more important than grades. So you go to parties and go dancing with friends every weekend, but when the finals start reality hits. As you sit down to study you think to yourself What have I done? Even though the semester was full of fun memories, stories and new friends maybe school is more important. Thankfully there is still time to raise that GPA.
