Week 9 Post

For this weeks assignment I chose to describe a picture. I was exploring my options on Flickr when I came across a photo that read, “Anxiety.” The definition of Anxiety is, “a feeling of worry, nervous-ness, or un-ease; typically about something with an uncertain outcome.” Could this not be a more accurate state of mind for a college student?

At 17 we are asked what we want to do with our lives. How could we possibly know? The pressure to decide what you want in life is exhausting. Our journey begins our freshmen year of college. As students we are faced with several responsibilities. These responsibilities consist of work, school, housing, book costs, tuition, and extra-curricular activities. Juggling these tasks is hard, but we do it. Students don’t give themselves the credit they should. Working 20+ hours weekly, and also attending 5 classes a week. Managing your work and school schedule is difficult, but we create a balance. It may lead us to exhaustion, but as students we know that hard work will pay off. We are faced with so many responsibilities all at once, and it can be overwhelming. There are plenty of times I’ve been overwhelmed with work, school, and creating a balance. Beginning our adult lives is terrifying, yet exciting all the same.

At the age of 19 I can openly admit that I frequently struggle with Anxiety. I can also admit that as a student, I know I am a hard worker.

My sophomore year is now coming to an end and I have declared a major, and I couldn’t be more excited about that. I believe the college experience is about finding yourself. I started my freshmen year of college a completely  different person than I am now. College is a lot of hard work and late nights; I guarantee its worth it.

That is the link to my cool tool. I chose this cool tool because it looked really different. This cool tool has a-lot of animated features you can add to your site, which I thought was pretty cool. This website allows you create a different type of blog, and add silly features.

This is the link to my Google Site. I chose this theme for my site because it looked clean. I want my blog to be about fitness, and certain tips. I’m not positive on how I want to organize everything on my page but I think it’d be really interesting to create a fitness blog. It would not only give me motivation but people around me.

Through this weeks activity I discovered how close to graduation we are. As sophomores we still have a-lot to accomplish, but we are closer to our goals. We will soon graduate with our Bachelor’s degree and begin our lives. The future is a scary thing to think about because we don’t know where we will be in the next few years. I have several things that I want to accomplish before I graduate. The Police Academy is a huge goal of mine to complete in the near future. I believe we all have the ability to achieve our goals if we work hard! The video A conversation with my 12-year-old self is really cool. It gave me the idea to do the same thing! It would be really interesting to talk about where I am right now, what I worry about, who I hangout with, and what my job is in a video and look back on it in 20 years. I wonder how different my life will be. It’s a crazy thought!
