The Struggle is Real

College is a struggle. It is hard to balance time because of all of the things that need to happen within 24 hours. There are just not enough hours in a day to do every little thing that needs to be done. I want to nap, but I feel guilty because I have homework to do, but I did not get enough sleep the night before.

The number one struggle, for me anyway, is finding time to do laundry. My basket gets so full sometimes, that I can barely even carry it. I never have time to do it any earlier than a week long. Usually Thursday to Saturday. So...a week and a few days.

The number two struggle is not dressing up. I can not remember the last day that I dressed up because I just do not have time for it. I like sticking to my leggings or sweatpants and hoodies or long sleeve shirts. I always have my hair in a ponytail or bun because who has time to do their hair if they cannot even get dressed?

Number three will have to be my eating schedule. My class schedule is a little hectic. Some days I may or may not be able to eat. It also depends on homework. Sometimes I will not be able to eat because of the amount of homework I have. That usually leads to me eating super late or not at all.

Number four struggle is balancing my time with everything else that is going on with my life. I have classes Monday, Wednesday and Friday 9:15 a.m.-3:00 p.m.. I have work at 4:30-7:30. afterwards, I try to make the most of my time. I want to hangout with friends. I want to go the sporting events. I want to go to fun events. I want to go take a nap. I want to do homework so I do not fail my classes. I really do not have the time to do everything that I want.

I really think that college puts me through more than usual. I never had the pressure to be my best. Yes, high school pushed me but nothing like the push I get in college. I am completely on my own. I have a great support system and I am very appreciative for everything that my support system does for me but sometimes, I just wish that I had more... Like more time in a day to do everything that needs to be done.
