It’s December, you’re in college, the last thing you want to think about is celebrating Christmas. There are exams to study for, papers to write, group projects to suffer through… who has time to think about the holidays?
Look, as much as I hate to say it, but the busy end-of-semester rush doesn’t delay the passing of time. Christmas will continue to get closer, and if you happen to have a late semester (like I did this year), it’ll be upon you almost as soon as you’re home for the holidays.
It’s hard to celebrate Christmas in college, but fortunately there are some ways you can still have holiday cheer while passing all of your exams.
We’ve all been there: You have a paper due tomorrow and you haven’t even started the book yet, you have a thousand things to get done over the weekend, or you didn’t write your blog post ahead of time and you have no idea what to do.
Everyone struggles with managing their time (anyone who says they don’t is probably lying and playing Candy Crush in class). And look, I’m no angel either (re: writing blog posts), but I have learned a few things over the years, especially after starting college. Today, I want to take a few minutes and talk about time management and a few ways I’ve gotten better at it.
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of year again! The time when the temperature starts to go down and textbook prices go way, way up. That’s right, it’s college season once again!
Now let’s get one thing straight here: college is rough for everyone in some way. Especially when you’re going in as a freshman, you’ll likely have some hard days, whether you’re an introvert or extrovert – and that’s okay! In my own experience as a freshman-year introvert though, I noticed that I faced some challenges that were different from those of my extroverted peers.
That’s where this post comes in. I know that college is a hard transition for many, and at least for the introverts, I want to help you out if I can. (Sorry I can’t speak to your own challenges, extroverts – but perhaps I can convince one of my friends to blog about it…)
