This Semester Will Be The Death of Me

School Rambling up ahead. You have been warned.

So school started this week, woohoo! (sarcasm)

I'm usually happy to be back (well I never technically left since I work part-time on campus haha..) but I'm usually excited about a new schedule and courses. Welp, not this time around.

Why this semester is going to be tough:

marathon training + Full Time student  + part-time job + in charge of the UIC Run Club + trying to raise my GPA + Trying to graduate on time = hectic

I'm so glad I quit job #2 a few weeks ago, or else I would've probably ended up dead. Or close to dead.

my poor brain...
I can't afford to fail a class, or else my GPA will go south and it will put me back a whole semester (and delay graduation). 3 of the courses I'm taking are going towards my major, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them

psych geek ♥
 But the other two.. are going to be tough.

Nutrition... is not as simple as people think. Rather, we look at food at a very very very microscopic level.. and how it reacts with our body, how the body uses it as energy, glycolysis, lactic acid cycle, Acetal CoA, blahh blahh blah. Chemistry is not my favorite subject, so of course I'm going to struggle. ALOT. And I'm even tempted to just drop my minor if it's going to jeopardize my graduation and GPA. But I'm soooooooo close to finishing it up. One more tough course next semester, and I'm done with my minor. Ah. :( decisions, decisions...

Can I do it? Well... running has taught me that the hard work you put it, will pay off.

So I'm biting the bullet. I'm going to try my hardest. Study long hours... and hope for the best. My finish line this time is not going to be around the corner, with a timing mat on the ground, or a FINISH banner on top, rather it will be crossing the stage, in my gown with a fake diploma in hand :)

Cross your fingers for me!
This is going to be a verryyy longggg semester.

57 Days until the Marathon
and 1 year and 4 months until graduation.


  1. School is also the death of me this quarter! I am taking 5 classes 3 relate to my major and I am reading over 100+ pages a week. I also graduate in 1 year and 4 months. Scary stuff! We can get through this! :)

  2. I totally feel you :) Just take it one day at a time - there is life after school, i promise!
