First off, I’m a senior at Northern Illinois University, graduating May 2014. Woot! Woot! But before I get too excited, I need to pass these 5 classes i’m currently enrolled in
I major in Communications Media Studies and minor in Journalism Public Relations (try saying this every time someone asks you, “what are you studying,” it’s a mouthful. I’m taking my last 5 classes as an undergrad and they are all upper level classes; which means they require so much effort in and out of the class. Apparently, professors do not care that you have other classes, work and extra-curricular activities, naps, play time when they pile you up with homework and projects.
It seems like everyday I’m pulled in every direction, one thing right after another right after another. I barely have time to get 5 hours of sleep in, sometimes i’m so caught up I have to schedule in my lunch break. In the mean time, it’s getting hard to keep up with the new trends, social medias and even sometimes replying friends text messages/calls.
Oh! did i mention I also have to make time to work out at the rec at least 3-4 times a week? If you saw my daily schedule, you would think I was insane.
At this point, complaining about my workload would just make me more frustrated so i’m just going to take it one day at a time. BUT, if you hear me scream or have a mental breakdown, it’ll eventually be worth it. Right?
