School is about a month in, and for myself and nearly everybody I know, it hit us this past week like a brick wall. One we should’ve seen coming, but which threw us to the ground anyway. Classes finally hit their stride, free time is dwindling, and focus is now necessary to get through the hours of homework.
To illustrate. The year started off with a care-free attitude, much like the attitude of The Double Dream Hands guy. He’s out there, getting “jiggy” with it (as the young kids today would say). I was an SOG for welcome week, and loved every minute of it. Attitudes were positive, spirit was great, and the whole year stretched before us with optimism.
Now it’s time for business. We have our goals for the semester lined out before us. Our class objectives are clear; it’s only a matter of accomplishing them. Now that I’ve realized it, I’m calm. But I’ll admit that when I first hit the wall o’ work, my face probably gave away that I was a little shocked.
