I’ll admit it doesn’t sound easy. Midterms and assignments can suck. But there are certain things, I find, that can help keep you happy even when you’re sleeping four hours a night. Truthfully, I wish I had recognized what makes me happy and brought more of it into my life earlier on.
Believe me when I tell you that those days that seem so frustrating are just one of the many chapters of our university life. Getting lost trying to find the tutorial rooms in the basement of Davis was only one of the struggles I faced as a first-year with ambitious dreams. September 2014 was the year I learned that we need to embrace change and that things always have a way of working out.
