Yesss! Finally I am done with my first sem, and I am so proud of myself for this kind of accomplishment. All those sleepless nights were all worth it! And now currently my sembreak so I have all the time to take a rest (and do some blog posts too) yaaaass! *happy dance*
And ofcourse like from the title I just want to share on this blogpost some of my learnings from my first sem, and as a college student also. So let’s start?
- It was absolutely normal that your sleep was only 2-5 hours a day, you’re lucky enough if you still complete the 8 hours.
- You don’t have to be serious all the time, sometimes it is okay to chill and hang-out with your friends.
- Study your lessons very well, memorize + internalize + trust your instincts.
- Manage your time very well. Do not procrastinate. Know your priorities in order for you to breath properly during deadlines.
- Have focus. If it is serious time to study, then focus is the way to go.
- Expect that your messenger has a lot of Group Chats. Group chat for the whole class, with your subject teacher, with your close friends, with your group mates, with your close close friends and etc.
- Have a group of friends that will surely help you in everything you need about acads (plus the one who’ll BULLY you all the way)
- Also expect that there are times wherein your classmates will invite you to drink (alcohol, milktea and WATER) and that’s normal, for stress reliever, for a celebration, for a break. Give it a try but don’t drink too much! Drink moderately.
- Don’t ever try to skip meals and sleep for the sake of studying. If you feel that you’re already tired, rest. Then continue after.
- Coffee or Hot Choco is a must! Especially during morning classes! For energy boost.
- Patience is a virtue. There were profs that really knows how to use their power — deal with it.
- If you have enough time, use them wisely — advance study if ever.
I guess that’s all for now. I’ll try to update as much as I can. Hehe. But if I were to describe my first sem — UNEXPECTED. You’ll know eventually in the next blogpost.
