Things I Learned in Entering University

I have been studying for a quiet period of time. Actually I am a grade conscious snail who wanted to have a good grades and that doesn't disappoint my parents. I wanna have something to look up every semester and quarter ends. I have been studying for more than a decades. And I am going to become a second year college in the upcoming next School Year as a Industrial Engineer student. However, I am studying for already 2 years in university where I should be an upcoming 3rd year but I'm becoming a 2nd year student as I said. The reason is that I shifted course last year, where I choose to become an engineer instead of continuing my electrical course. Well, this topic is not about how long I studied, but about the things and lessons I have obtained in the past 2 years in university.

Be with the right circle of friends.

This applied even in my highschool life. Choosing the right circle of friends to be with is the best decision a student must firstly acquire. For what reason? Well it is because a mistake of choosing a wrong friends will lead you to failure. They will just gonna be a toxic distraction to your student life. Telling you to go to the party or mall instead of studying. Will do more gossip and chitchat but not about the lesson. Instead, look for a friend who's willing to lend a hand if you need a help, a friend that will motivate you to push your limit in studying. A friend that will not gonna be jealous when you have better grades than them.a friend that will ask you if you're okay, and will remind you of the things need to be done.

Time management

Time is Gold! But for me it is a diamond. In college, we will going to face a bunch of activities, homeworks, performance etc that will gonna be needed to submit in a short period of time. I really don't know, buy I think is that these professor of mine are having a meeting or a gc and they maybe talking about to have a same due date, kidding. But seriously, they all have same date that needed to be submit. That's why managing your time is very important. We need to organize what are the things most needed to be done, and do it instantly. We must identity what is important and what is urgent. Well, having a time to rest is also a time management, that's why don't forget to rest.

Avoid procrastination

It is a must!! I remember I procrastinated for a whole weeks and more one time in my first year in college. I didn't do anything but to lay in my bed and watching anything that pass my gadgets. And then, my professors told us that they must have the output as soon as possible. Yupp, they have shortened the deadline. And that's me cramming to finish all the activities, I thing I lost the quality of some of my output that time. That's why it is important to have time management. In order to avoid procrastination, we must eradicate things that distract us the most like gadgets and focus on our goal.

Do not compete

It is like the first tips of having right circle of friends but it is not eof not looking at classmates as other runners where we need to be in the first place. Instead look at them as an oarsman where all of us are rowing the same boat to the finish line. Anypne can lend a help to anyone and so we can too. Become over competitive just adds heavy pressure to our shoulder which we must eradicate. To lighten things, we must help each others. As for me, I am only competing with no other than but myself alone. I am aiming to surpass my limit everytime. Like I am challenging myself to have more than 90 score in each examination. In that it will boost myself to be better student.

Don't forget to enjoy

Do the things that makes you happy. Just like my professors ask told us, "why are you taking engineering course?, Is it because your parents told you to do?, Your friends are taking engineering too?, A famous person said it to his/her vlogs?, If that's the case then you must think again if you really wanted to be on this course. Because, following other's decisions for our own path of life is the worst thing to do." We are the one who's gonna walk to this path, we are not scared to fail but scared to disappoint others when we failed. It will be better if you're in stress while enjoying the course than just stressing because we don't want them to disappoint us.

Don't forget to enjoy also adds that, we must not always go for studying all the time. We must have a me time, a time with friends, love ones and families. Have a time to breath and forget about the school. In that we can have a rest, an another jump start, a cool down. So that the next time we will face the school we have full energy to do so.
