Baruch, the best CUNY school in New York City. I’m finally here, after four years of hardworking in high school. I suddenly feel I have grown a lot and have become more mature. I am a college student now, not one of those high school kids who have nothing better to do but hang out on the street after school.
The first day of classes was easy. Everyone in the class is cool. They are all friendly and only mind their own business. Most of my professors are old, as I expected.
“Shit, so much work to do for this semester. So much reading. I hate reading, and I am too lazy to read anything. I didn’t even do my summer reading Brooklyn.” I said to myself as I was looking through all the syllabus papers. Well, it’s just like high school that we have to read this and read that. But, did I ever read? Maybe sometimes when I was in the mood. I guess I will just figure something out. Hopefully i will read as I told myself before, at least something.
College professors are so fancy that we do our homework online. My Micro-Economics homework is due today; I guess I will do it at night then. The night time is always the best time to do homework because I get all these ideas to answer my questions which it doesn’t happen at the day time, mostly. “What the hell? I got a zero on the homework that I didn’t even start?” I said to myself after I decided to do my homework at 10 p.m. The homework was due at 5 p.m. Wow. Do students do their homework at 5 p.m. anymore?
Tomorrow is the midterm, I will spend the night and tomorrow morning on the train study the material. I think it’s more than enough of study as I always do. Last minute study always works the best in high school. Perhaps for college too. Unfortunately, I got a D, the very first D in my life. I learned my lesson, never wait till the last minute to study for any test in college, unless you know everything. But still, it won’t hurt to get an A.
Essays, research papers, essays, book reports, essays, and more essays. Why do we have to write so many essays? I have already gotten my second essay question when I still haven’t gotten my first essay back. Indeed, we will be super well prepared to write anything in the future, hopefully. One thing that I enjoyed writing essays is that I got to print them out in the school library for free within $100 budget. I feel accomplished when my papers come out fresh from the printers.
Three more weeks until the end of my first semester in college. I’m planning on moving into the library during finals week so I can get those As. I’m looking forward to the winter recession.
