Last semester my grades went down the hill followed by my little moment and breakdown on IG crying my eyes out. Unfortunately, crying does not solve problems (it helps in preventing one from putting a chock hold over your neck though). Instead, I have resolved to brace up this semester, with less smiles, really unapologetic and gain the knowledge I can and need.
I am under pressure to please my parents and also myself (I set really high standards) and unfortunately I compare myself to people doing well and wonder why I am not meeting up to their standards (I don’t know if I am to consider this a flaw).
Research papers seem to be my downfall and I know in my head that it doesn’t seem like I am making any headway. I really don’t know how to argue points in research papers (do y’all have recommendations)? People have suggested I read in groups (I am not proud, but that isn’t something I am good at and I am fine knowing that). I ask questions when in doubt but I don’t like to seek help, I really love to task myself out of a hard situation, but I think this method of growth is failing me. Do y’all have any suggestions? School starts in a few days Y’all wish me luck. One last thing, as if to make matters worse, finding a job to keep up with bills is proving difficult, plus I miss home a lot, maybe that is me missing my comfort Zone… its 2018 we move (Wavy Level)
