The beginning of every semester can be a little rough. You’re used to sleeping in and not wearing pants or a bra and then suddenly you have assignments and readings and long commutes. Let’s work out those feelings, gif-style.
At the beginning of the semester you jump in with a renewed energy, telling yourself that this time around you’ll be the most responsible student that has ever lived.
Then the alarm wakes you up at 7:00 on your first day back.
And your professors jump right in with 300 pages of reading, article reviews, and paper topic selection.
Which means you stay in to read on the weekend.
But you keep making up reasons to take breaks.
Then you realize what you really need to get through it.
And that totally helps your academic juices flow.
And you finish your work.
No, wait…there’s more to do. There’s always more.
Which means you kind of hate everything.
But despite the excessive work…
…and utter lack of social interaction
…and difficult professors
…and sky-high expectations
…you can’t imagine NOT doing this.
