My College Experience...So Far
Catching up on homework, watching Netflix and finally getting a temporary break from the constant bombardment of assignments.
Falling into the blackhole that is Netflix, YouTube, or the News, usually happens during the week and then regret it soon after.
Working all hours of the day to finish an assignment and I don't go to bed until 3 am with a class at 8 am.
Being away from my family has made me feel like I don't remember who I was before I left. I feel almost like a different person coming back, which makes me uncomfortable. Sometimes, it feels as though I'm not comfortable with being myself anymore.
Like what I said in the confusing category, I don't know how to act around my relatives when I come back from college. It feels like I was in another world and coming back is a massive adjustment. Sometimes, I can't have those close conversations when I am standing in front of them. On the phone, I can say whatever is on my mind without worry of judgement, but I don't know what's so different.
When I'm back with my family, we still have a great time together with no issues. I remember then that being home was always fun to me because I should be comfortable and laughter is a common theme within our house.
My family and I went to go apple-picking before we went home and it reminded me of all the times we went to the same apple picking places in the mountains. I had a huge sense of nostalgia after that.
Going camping every year was another thing I did before college, but I'm glad my family is still getting us to go even with my busy schedule. The time spent away from college and with family is always a nice break.
An exciting experience that was well worth it because I met a lot of cool people within the program. Eventually, the major didn't feel as daunting as I thought it would after going to the camp.
Professor uses different book than the entire department. Makes up her own questions that don't apply to the reading the night before. Condescending to students who ask questions.
Stressful, but necessary. Instructors are very informative but sometimes misleading. Don't know what to expect.
Stressful as well, depending on the time restrictions. I do love talking with experts and other people for information, but it can feel overwhelming at times.
Beyond tedious. A lot of busy work that if you don't get a head start on, it won't get done. Most of it makes sense, but it feels like a lot for an incoming freshman.
Tedious at times, necessary at most. Depends on the group of people.

The professor is funny and always open to questions. Allows for a large period of study before any of the tests that he administers.
SWE is the only club that I have been to so far, I haven't had time to do other clubs with the modules and homework taking up that time.
Making appointments is fairly difficult to manage with a busy schedule already and I hope it gets easier over time because it can get pretty tight now. Some appointments have to be scheduled 15 minutes apart from another class or workshop.
MadLab is a fun way to get all the knowledge you need to know to be successful with the more confusing computer programs and if you want to do personal projects, you have the knowledge to do them.
CAP Workshops are helpful for when you graduate and are looking into jobs or even setting your profile up to make yourself more profitable.
The people I talk to, but don't know the name of after having an hour long conversation.
The people I have ongoing conversations with everyday and enjoy spending time with outside of the classroom.
The people I know the name of, but only say hi to in the hallways.
