When I first arrived at ODU I was excited; excited to start someplace new. I can’t really say I was nervous because I wasn’t. College is just more schooling, just like high school. Compared to my first few weeks my stress level is the same. I don’t tend to get too flustered about anything. Also, my class load is pretty light so there isn’t really anything to get stressed about. It’s a good and a bad thing I guess.
I am not too sure about my midterm grades. I think they are going to be split. Math and Politics are going to be okay but English and Philosophy are bad. What has hurt my grades has been skipping class. I would skip and then not turn something in as well as not knowing what was due the next class. With that being said the thing that has helped me the most is attending class. What a concept. You go to class and you pass. You skip class and you fail.
The best thing that I could do to improve my grades between now and the final exams in my other classes is to go to every class and completing and turning in every assignment. However, that is what I need the most help with. I feel like something is mentally wrong with me because I know that there is a problem but I don’t do anything to fix it. I can’t get motivated. I need to work on all of that.
What I have learned is that I have absolutely no clue about what I want to do. That regards to everything. What I want to major in, what I want to do for a job, everything. What I haven’t learned is what to do about it. I will just have to figure that out as the year progresses.
