Ticking Time

We’ve all heard of the saying “April showers bring May flowers” and how we can’t enjoy the good things in life without experiencing hardships. However, April is hitting us with heavy showers. March went by fast in a blink of an eye and now we’re nearing the end of a brutal semester. Since most days all blend together, time seems irrelevant. 

Some days I feel like there isn’t enough time in a day. How does a day seem to go by so fast yet slow at the same time? All these assignments are piling up as we near the end and it feels like I won’t finish them all in time. The pressure to produce quality work in time to meet deadlines is exhausting. The ticking time clock in my head makes it harder to want to start or finish an assignment.  

My weekends blur together and I begin to question if I am truly living. It can be hard to manage your school and personal life. If you aren’t careful, you can end up letting school work take over. College is important, but we can’t let this ticking time clock bring pessimism. We should use it as a reminder that we only experience college life once. We need to take time to walk away from the burden of being a college student. Even taking an afternoon off or a few hours can help us mentally. 

We don’t want to remember our college life revolving around just schoolwork. I would like to look back on the times I spent with my friends or doing things I enjoyed. There should be a balance, but it is hard to find it. All we can do is focus on how these moments are fleeting. They are important to use so we can graduate and make it to the next stage of our life. Though we need to remember to take a deep breath and truly enjoy this journey. We can all make the most out of the little time we have.
