Roberto–Busy Week (1.29.10)Posted February 5th, 2010 by Allyson
I had a busy week this time, and even overwhelming. But I think it’s good because that means that I’m working and maintaining myself busy.
I had my first midterm on Monday for my chemistry class. The test was pretty intense but I felt confident doing the test.
Even though I felt confident about that test, when the result came out, they were different than my expectations. Because of that I was questioning myself of why did that happen? I felt ready for that test, and I felt that I did well. But it turns out to be the opposite.
Fortunately, it wasn’t a really bad grade but I was expecting a higher grade. When I was eating lunch at McNary dining with a friend of mine she was talking to me about how she was facing the same problem as me.
She got a poor grade on her midterm even though she wasn’t expecting it. She studied a lot, and at the end it happen all the opposite. In my opinion, it happens, and sometimes the things aren’t always the way we expected; sometimes we win and sometimes we lose.
But I think the key is to never stop trying, and that what will help us to prevail here at College.
I remember every time went to bed, I was exhausted, and the good thing was that my bed in Callahan was soft and comfortable to sleep.
That’s the good thing about living in dorms. I like my room, and I think it’s a good option to live in dorms.
Also, during this week I had to write my first paper which was very frustrating because I didn’t know how to start my paper, and I was confused. When I realize that I didn’t know what to write about I just start to watch some episodes of Dragon ball GT, my favorite cartoon, on YouTube. That might sound funny but I got kind of relaxed after watching that program and I then I felt less frustrated when writing my paper. That’s my way to get relaxed, and everyone has their own ways too.
