One of these days, you will wake up and feel so behind in life.
You will go into discussion and realize that everyone knows everything that you don’t and that you have a test in three weeks and you feel like you are drowning in a sea of unforgiveness. You will look at that list of unfinished tasks and unfinished apps and you will loathe yourself.
When this happens, and I guarantee that it will at some point in your undergraduate career at Berkeley, breathe. Take two steps back.
Instead of the self-deprecation that we often go through, take the time and re-evaluate. What is it that you can do better? What is it that you may not understand yet? How are your studying habits not benefiting you? Is there anything that you need to let go extracurricular-wise that will give you enough time to study?
Breathe. Look at your circumstances and then evaluate yourself and make the changes where you deem necessary.
You are beyond capable.
