I feel my first week of college was very successful. I was very alert in all my classes and I feel I can get very comfortable around my peers already. I like that I have to figure out things that I don’t know on my own because I feel that I learn better that way. Every day I come to school I come with an open mind so that I gain as much knowledge as I can. However, I am beginning to feel a little bit overwhelmed because I’m not sure how to use certain websites that we have to submit out work on. I like the fact that everyone is in their own world and concerned about themselves and what they have to do.
In my first week I also found out the major I intended on taking is something that I’m going to have to reconsider or I’m going to have to consider transferring schools. I am worried about that because my intentions were to graduate from City Tech and if I have to transfer schools or change my major I am going to have to change a lot of the plans that I had for my future. Although I am having a few minor setbacks I am grateful for it because it has allowed me to think about other career paths that I hadn’t considered before and whatever it may be it might be more suitable for me and I might be able to make more money than I intended.
I’m beginning to see that as these days go on things are getting more complicated and you have to have self motivation so that you stay consistent with your work and attendance. No one is responsible for what you do but you and you have to always advocate for yourself because if you don’t no one will.
In my classes that have similar names to the ones that I took in High School I compare the work content and the way the professors teach to the teachers in high school, by me doing this it helps me put things into perspective. This also helps me to make the best decisions for myself which I’ve also been trying to practice a lot lately because that’s what I’m going to have to do for the rest of my life .
