I was never one to believe in college stereotypes like the “sophomore slump.” I always figured that as long as you worked hard everything would be alright and everything would get done. I may have avoided the frightening sophomore slump, but I must admit that junior year is brutal; you’re past all introductory level courses, you’re way involved with officer positions in all of your clubs, and there’s a little thing called an internship/job search that is ever-ominously looming. Junior year is a lot of work!! I’ve never had to pull an all-nighter in my life (thank goodness!), but this term has seen some pretty ridiculous nap-length nights of sleep… far too many to be healthy! And it’s not like I’m goofing around either! Even working straight from dawn to dusk, sometimes I fear that there will literally not be enough hours in the day to complete certain tasks. This term has been insane with school work, club work, and work work and I really hope that spring can bring some ray of relaxation… even an hour of TV a week would be nice! Anyone else feeling the stress?
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
