I know it may be hard to believe, but the semester is not young anymore. As a matter of fact, it is already 1/8th of the way done. That’s 12.5% of the semester gone just like that! Of course, with that being said, the other 87.5% of the semester will feel long because of impending homework, class time, and extracurricular activities, which will certainly heat up.
In college, 16-week long semesters might seem daunting, but take it from me: Those weeks fly by! As you busy yourself with extracurricular activities and your studies, you will find that a rhythm develops. You will stop consciously measuring time at all. Being super busy is a great thing.
For me, I realized that this rapid passage of time makes it even more important to soak up every moment of my time in college. This year I am a senior and that means that my remaining time in college is limited. I am trying my best to cross every single item off my list of things I want to accomplish before the end of college. I’m visiting with old friends, taking outside-of-the-box classes, and trying to make as many memories as possible.
If you are still in high school or are now a freshman in college, try to take in your college years as much as possible. Try to take a break from planning out the future and experience the here and now. You’ll never get it back.
