What I Learned After Starting School Again

by - Saturday, August 04, 2018

I have been in school for two semesters now, after 2 years away from any educational institution, and I've learned a lot during my two semesters in school.

It's possible if you work hard
I knew I would have to work hard, but when you're in school, you definitely have to put a lot of hard work into getting a decent grade that isn't failing.

Balance is key
I hope by the time this post goes up I'll have found a work-study job at school, but being in school means that this blog has been put on the backburner. The only reason why I have posts going up every day is thanks to creating a lot of pre-planned posts.

It's tiring
I'm really surprised how draining school is, but it might be because I'm an introvert. Nevertheless, having one five hour class once a week is draining because we have to eat our lunch in class, but also, I might have to purchase some energy drinks if I want to keep up.

Study channels help
I've unsubscribed from practically every Youtube beauty channel I was following and substituted them for educational channels and study channels. My favorite study channels are tbhstudying, Mariana's Study Corner, and Study With Maggie. If I need help with a subject, I usually go to Crash Course.

People of all ages
It's not embarrassing to start school again at a later age or start school for the first time if you're 25. There are some working professionals much older than you who are in school to further their career or to change their career paths, and some even do it for other reasons, such as getting out of the house. Some are even grad students, working for either a Master's or Ph.D.

Use as many available resources as possible
Your tuition money pays for everything in the school-use your resources! Get a work-study job, use the library, use online tutoring or in-person tutoring, and they even have a career center if you're not sure what you want to do when you graduate.

Work study jobs are hard to find in summer
In the summer, I didn't even get a call back when I applied for work-study, so I figured opportunities might be available in the fall. If you don't have a work-study job in the summer, don't worry!

  1. I've been thinking about going back to school again as well but can't decide what to get a Master's (or diploma) in, lol. I agree with your point that at school, there's a mixture of age clusters on campus which is refreshing! I loved interacting with the young and older to get different perspectives in life.
