As college students we experience a lot of emotions that we didn’t know we had. For example, I never knew that school work could piss me off until I got to college. I am a much laid back person and it takes a lot to get me legitimately angry. Or so I thought. It wasn’t until I got to college did I realize how stressful it was, and after realizing this I also came to notice how terrible I am at dealing with stress. And after I am stressed I just get aggravated with myself and in the end I accomplished nothing.
My first experience with this was a Biology assignment I had to do last semester. As I’ve mentioned before Biology is my worst subject. So for this project I had to come up with a model of something. The problem was I had no idea what to do or what to even make. Which lead to me putting it off until the last minute, which stressed me out even more. Me being stressed lead to me panicking that then lead to me procrastination. Then I started to get mad at myself for being stupid and not being smart enough for my class. Another thing to know about me was that I was always to scared to e-mail my professors because I always thought they would think I was dumb. Well I broke down that night an e-mailed my professor and asked him questions. He replied back instantly and I was able to finish my project on time. After this I learned that instead of just getting mad at yourself try to find ways for help and never be afraid to ask questions.
