The Trials of College Life

Yesterday I was really bothered by a teacher after I said that my brain was fried. She’s an amazing person who juggles tons of work stuff and her kids, but I just don’t think it’s ok for a person to judge someone else based on what they think their mental capacity is. Although I don’t have children, I still have 5 classes, which is a little like having 5 part-time jobs, an executive board position on a club, another executive board position for PRSSA, a dj spot on our college radio, and a job. Having that much on your plate would make most people go insane, but I think I handle it pretty well.

Another thing is that this same professor tells people that they are spread too thin while she’s doing the same thing. I wish I wasn’t spread too thin, I wish my professors didn’t like me and didn’t want me to be involved in a thousand different things, but I feel like I can’t be involved in only one organization or club and take the minimum amount of credits. It’s not possible in my life.

I wish my professors would remember that being in limbo with adulthood and childhood is a stressful time of life. It’s hard to figure out the kind of person you are while you are getting crushed with work, responsibilities and obligations that go along with being an adult. How am I supposed to know that this is the average amount of stress for an adult when I’ve been an adult for like a year? It’s not fair that I have to play a juggling game every day between everything when most people have one or two jobs and maybe have kids. ALSO THEY DIDN’T HAVE TO HAVE KIDS. THEY CHOSE THAT.

I’m just really sick of being pushed too far and spread too thin.
