Hello, good day readers and writers, before I start sharing my first week of college life, I wanna say sorry first for being inactive the whole month. I don't know but I don't have the courage to atleast type a word for an article. I just decided to enjoy the vacation since I only have one month to enjoy my life before college. Thank you also for those subscriber who stayed and didn't unsubscribe me though I'm not publishing any article.
Now, I wanna share to you guys my first week in college online class. I actually didn't enjoyed the first week and I was just nervous every morning and every meeting especially when we are told by the professor to open our camera and introduced ourselves. As posted on my noise.cash account, I never liked the idea of introducing myself, asking my talent or hobbies and asking my views about the subject lol. But yeah, I can't say no to the professor so I ended up introducing myself to everyone.
“I'm Carol (with my surname), 18, from Batangas and I do portrait drawings”. That's the only thing I usually say haha. It's just one sentence but bruh I'm really nervous to say those words. And after I introduced myself, my classmate chatted something like I was like a rapper because I spoke too fast haha. When I'm nervous, I'm literally saying words fastly. That's also my way for the professor not to ask more about myself and for him/her to just say “okay, thank you, next” haha.
Aside from introducing ourselves, we also had our orientation which I don't understand because I focused on facebook messenger, sorry professors hihi. I only heard some class policies and the grading system which made me more nervous because of the percentage of final examination and midterm examination. Honestly speaking, I hate examinations, that always affect my grades. I already studied the lessons but the moment I take the exams, everything I learned and studied just lost in my mind, maybe I should try other study techniques.
Moving forward, my first week was also full of hates. Yes, hates, why? it's because of my blockmates. I really don't like some of their attitudes. You know “pabibo”? I have a pabibo blockmates and I don't like that. I'm not a person who'll easily hate another person for no reason. It's just I don't like how they act when there's a professor, it's obvious that they just want the attention of everyone. Even before, in our group chat, they were an immature people who never stopped chitchatting nonsense topics. I'm immature but not as immature as them. They are annoying honestly. Like, they always ruin my day, actually not only mine but my other blockmates' day too.
I think that's how was my first week, just being nervous, introducing myself, hearing orientations, (yes just hearing cause hearing is different from listening. When you're listening, you understand what the person is saying, so I don't understand what my professor discussed so I ony heard it. ) and hating my blockmates haha sorry. But I also had a realization.
REALIZATION on my First week of college life.
I've realized that college is indeed far different from being a high school student. In college you'll be forced to study every lessons in advance and listen to the professor especially in math subjects because if you try not to do it, you'll literally get failing grades. Unlike in high school that even if you didn't listen to your teacher you can still have a time to study the previous lessons and I think in high school, teachers are not giving a failing grades, I think 75 is the lowest. I'm not sure though.
One thing I also realized is online class is not easy especially when you only have your phone. I think using a laptop is way better than using a phone but I'm not sure cause I never tried to attend classes using a laptop cause I don't have one. It's not only about the classes, laptop would also help a lot especially in creating PowerPoint presentations, typing answers in word document, reviewing the lessons and doing research project. I joined twitter giveaways that have a prize of laptop and I do really hope to win. Pray for me guys haha. My phone has a low storage also so I think I'll be needing a laptop for real. But don't worry guys I'm also starting to save money for the laptop, well I hope that I can buy a laptop before this semester end.
And for those college students who non-stop say “laptop cutie” haha let's keep on saying it LAPTOP CUTIE!!!! Who knows, maybe tomorrow we already have it. But while saying it, let's also try to save money or bch maybe for us to have it.
And I think that's all for this article, don't be like me who hates my blockmates haha.
Hoping for a high grades and good mental health for this semester! Goodluck to all college students and God Bless us all!!!
