Ive been studying almost non-stop for the past few days since I seriously falling behind on my math courses. Probably end up dropping it before the deadline and retaking it. During the breaks I started considering what lies ahead...
Since Im not a A student, more of a B+ or something around there, theres nothing really to brag about. Although, Im starting to really perceive that I dont seem to have the dedication or grasped that mindset of being a college student. I havent adapted to push myself into really studying and going over my course material, instead I would just be satisfied with that B or B+. Im not saying that programming is not enjoyable its great, but again its that mindset that comes back to roundhouse kick me in the face.
My first semester really wasnt part of my major curriculum I only got the electives out of the way, now Im stuck with all Physics and Math courses. My friends and classmates tell me often that I am too hard myself, for me in a way its to counter-balance my lack of commitment.
Still its only been the last few days where Ive started to really get serious about this situation. Most likely not last long before I go astray again. Its the same situation with the devil and angel on my shoulders having a brawl.
How do you guys do it?
I just hope next semester I come to realize it or end up staying here for a long time.
edit: I didnt want to say engineering requires more dedication than other courses, buts its ridiculously stale in a way. Im sure many of you have said that. D:
When I said I was being hard on myself, its towards when I am in class... Once class ends, majority of the times the effort gets thrown out the window.
