I absolutely cannot live without having spare time. As a commuter, it is very important for me to manage my time wisely. Since I’m at Fontbonne 8 hours a day , it is a good idea for me to get my homework done when I am not in class so that when I get home I have lots of free time. At home I started watching Scream Queens and I’m really excited for American Horror Story to start next week! That’s the other thing — every student should find a TV show that they really like to watch in their spare time. I don’t live in a dorm because everything that I could not live without is at home!
I think my biggest challenge in college is really my time management of how I can balance my study, work, and my leisure time nicely. Having an opportunity to study abroad, I always feel that I have to study very hard in order to best utilize my time studying in the United States. Thus, I often give myself so much pressure on studying. Sometimes, I felt so overwhelmed that I couldn’t handle my stress and felt suffocated. One of the best ways for me to relieve my stress is chatting with my friends since I can distract a bit from my heavy workload and just being express my emotion helps me a lot (refresh my mind). Also, now I find a good idea to just go run at forest park to relieve my stress.
I know studying is sometimes very boring and stressful, but I always keep reminding myself that after getting through this time, I will have a better future and pursue the dream job that I like. That’s my Motivation to Move On!!!!Cheers to you all!!!!
