Well would you look at that. It’s mid-October already. Seems like only yesterday I was moving into residence, freaking out about making friends. Now I’m only freaking out about all the essays and assignments I have due! Yes, yes, I know… why am I writing this when I could be doing homework? Do you even need to ask that question?
Let me just give you a piece of advice: you are going to go into university thinking “yeah, I’ve got this. I’m going to be totally focused and work my ass off! I’m gonna start everything early!”
I thought the same thing! Heck, I started out doing just that! But this is university, this is a whole new world. There are distractions (examples: Supernatural, How I Met Your Mother, movies, friends, a social life) and these distractions are focus killers. Trust me, I’ve gone through almost two and half seasons of Supernatural in like three weeks. My roommate is no help either.
Anyway, I guess what I’m trying to say is: you will get distracted, it’s almost guaranteed. But that doesn’t mean you aren’t going to do well. A little distraction is okay, as long as you get your work done and try your best (totally cliche right?). Keep your goals in mind, but remember to have fun!
Now let’s see if I can take my own advice…
