If you're anything like me, reality has hit a little harder than usual this week. It's the sixth week of classes and you feel like all the cards are turned against you. Between 18 credits, clubs, part-time jobs, trying to maintain a social life and regular sleep schedule - you just feel defeated. But in the midst of it all, there are still small positives in everyday!
