September: Remember how pumped you were to be back at school in September? New courses, new books, new professors – your past is behind you and you’re ready to kick some butt. Prepped with new stationary, you’re going to all your classes and pretending like you’re super-interested. 4.0? Piece of cake.
October: And so the real fun begins. The positivity is slowly waning, especially with the onset of midterms, but you’re still prodding along and not too behind on your readings. Things are slowly piling up, but you’re making colour-coded schedules to help you get through it.
