The Month Of April For A College Student

It Can Be Such A Wild Ride

The Month Of April For A College Student

April is the month between transition. It can be a very confusing time for college students. It is the time where assignments are ending, but more importantly the semester is ending.

The month in particular is when all the big, never ending assignments hit you at once and you are left with no time for anything else. Besides the famous word, stressed, there are many other emotions that come with the month of April and some of those emotions are hard to fit in words.

April is when you start feeling accomplished with all the time you have put into the semester, but also the time when you realize it all is coming to the end. To put it in simpler terms, it's a time when you want everything to be over, but want nothing to be over at the same time. You want the work to be done, but you want life with your friends to continue. It is a constant battle of happiness and sadness.

Yes, you will see your friends in the summer, but after living together for around 8 months these emotions are normal to have. Counting down the days can be satisfying, yet terrifying at the same time. The whole year has been a struggle, but in April especially you have been struggling together and when summer hits you can't wait to come back and have that again. It's a weird thing to want, but somehow doing nothing starts to feel boring when you actually are doing nothing.

When April does hit, you want the days to be over, real quick, but you wish the nights could last forever. It is during the night time you finally get peace and are wishing for the next day to hold out.

It is the time when you are sick of the food, but do not want to spend any more money either.

Even in this daily battle of wanting things and then not wanting certain things, May will come around and things will balance out. You will adjust to being with your family again and switching into a whole new routine. You will see your friends during the summer and have much needed catch up time. You will find your routine again it just takes time. Then, when you finally get used to your life at home, you will move back in and it will start again.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
