I’m so relieved to be finished with midterm exams for this semester. I’m certain I will not achieve results to rival my microeconomics exam, but I’ve survived—and more importantly—learned a lot about university life. Today, in the heat of the moment, I just found it so difficult to release all my newfound knowledge of classic liberalism, which may have cut into a class I enjoy and am normally very comfortable with. The results shouldn’t be devestating, or anything like that, but it’s a constant reminder of the intensity of university classes.
Class after class is like a ton of new material to aquaint yourself with. Of course, that also means if you don’t fully grasp just a single concept before the next class, you’ll be spending extra energy catching up, or giving up hope. Tomorrow is the deadline for students to withdraw from classes without damaging your GPA, and this fact is not lost on my fellow students; I know at least 3 people who have dropped a class to focus on their other, better subjects. It’s not hard to understand why, and I must admit that it’s somewhat comforting to know I’m not the only one suffering from stress.
So I’m pleased to have survived the right of passage known as ‘midterms’ and I think I’ll have a better sense of myself, and my studies, when final exams come around in about a month. Yay!
