It is the dreaded part of the semester where most students motivations hits a low and we want nothing more than to sleep all day and avoid our responsibilities. This week, being the first back from spring break, has already been jam packed, stressful and very draining both emotionally and physically.
Over spring break I pretty much ate, slept and visited friends and family, which to me is just as good as going somewhere warm and peaceful. The week flew by and before I knew it I was in the car making the hour and a half journey back up to college.
As this week begun I found it hard to get back into the routine of working and going to class, instead of waking up at noon I had to get up at 8 or 9 which that in itself was a huge struggle. Another big struggle was going to the gym and working out after taking a week long break from my normal routine of going 6 times a week. I could tell I had not done heavy cardio in a while and soon found workouts that were previously easy came challenging to me as I struggled to complete them.
Another thing that was weird about coming back was the lasting eeriness about the events that took place the week prior. If you did not already know I attend Central Michigan University, and if that doesn’t ring a bell then google the school and see read about the tragic event that took place just before spring break began.
It is chilling to watch such tragedies, like school shootings, on TV, and I never imagined that something like this would hit so close to home and would be talked about all across the country. If you want to hear more about how this impacted me personally I can write a separate post talking about that subject.
Though something so tragic happened we are more united than ever as a campus and encouraging posters saying ‘We are CMU’ are located all around campus. Being such a sensitive subject my professors were sure to direct us to the counseling center if we were having issues coping with what happened and needed further help as to how to cope healthily with it all.
On a lighter note I have a upcoming Spectrum Health visit this Friday in which we are going to visit the hospital, get a tour and speak to representatives and health administrators involved with the hospital. I am very excited for this opportunity and for sure will be writing a post about my experience and what it involved!
This is another reason why I cannot stress how important it is to get involved with different clubs, whether they are academic like mine is or simply just for fun, they provide you with opportunities and networking opportunities you would not have otherwise.
As of right now I only have 7 weeks left in the semester which is absolutely crazy to think about, i’m almost done with my first semester of college! I came into the process to intimidated but now that I am almost done I can say it is not as hard as I thought it would be but it was for sure a big adjustment, now to kick these mid-semester blues to the side and build up enough motivation to make it through these next 7 weeks!
