Sometimes I Add a Teaspoon of Sand...

You’ll come to find out soon enough that the titles of my blogs will either be cheesy song lyrics from the 1990s or quotes from Glee & Disney movies. This week’s title comes from Glee’s Brittany S. Pierce. Why this quote, I hear you ask? To be honest, there is no specific reason for this particular quote, as it has absolutely nothing to do with what I’m going to be blogging about, but at least it got your attention...

I’ve been trying to think of something that I can blog about since my inaugural blog, but to be honest, I’ve been so busy with my many jobs and university work, that I haven’t had the time to put much thought into it. Now that I have some time to sit and write, I figured I’d tell you about how my second year of Business Management is going. I’m only three weeks into the second year, and I already want to rip my hair out! (Sure, it’s now shorter than it was when I blogged last, but that’s beside the point.) The leap between the first and second year is greater than I thought it would be and if I am going to be as truthful as possible, I think I underestimated the leap. 

This year, I feel the pressure. I didn’t last year because I was a “fresher”, but now that I’ve been in the system for over a year, I feel as if I’m taking things more seriously. I’m sure that there are many other second year students who feel the same way I feel, but at times (especially in my course), the complacent attitude from last year has carried onto this year with a large number of students. I am trying my best to do what’s right for me, especially since all of my work is individual for this year, which is why I’m doing work at a time where I feel comfortable doing it rather than waiting for someone to say “Oh you can start it...in a few weeks”. With my schedule, waiting a few weeks is practically impossible. You’ll find out soon enough that starting earlier leads to less stress.

I’ll end this blog in the same way I started- with a random quote:






 

“There is no more Sheldon, I am the Sword Master!”
