It’s the third week of my senior year at college.
Everyone has settled in by the third week of college. We all know just how tough our professors are in each class, and most of us can remember where we’re supposed to be at a class, job, or internship. But! That’s just the time when the rut of the semester starts to sink in.
Remember how every semester seems to breeze past once you’re at the end of it? Week three is when that running-on-autopilot feeling starts to sink in. Sure, you think it’s practically the start of the semester, but that’s the trap! It’s practically the beginning, but it’s not really, and you’ll spend a few weeks in mindless appreciation of this thought before it’s the middle of the semester, and then it’s practically the middle right up until it’s practically the end!
The only answer is to live in each week while remaining alert to your own collegiate mortality. Soon another semester will have slipped through your fingers, leaving you another day older, but with little to show for it! The only solution: you need to shake things up right now.
Volunteer for something! Research something to impress a teacher! Pile on a side project, like making a movie, playing a little tennis, working out, or running a blog! Carpe that diem!
