Going back to school in the winter is just as bad as going back to school in the fall. You had a long break and once you got used to sleeping in and doing minimal work, class starts again.
But here are the worst things about going back to school in the winter.
1. It's freezing cold
I mean, I hate it when it's hot, but when it is too cold.... Don't get me started. Why is it so cold? Why am I still cold when I am wearing three sweaters?!
2. Packing up layers
When you have classes from 10 am to 7 pm, you got to pack up layers in case it gets cold later. Suddenly, you are wearing all three sweaters you brought and still feel cold at 7 pm.
The worst! The thing no one looks forward when going back to school! The fear of midterms and finals approaching! The lack of sleep! The long readings! The homework! It is just terrible!
4. Possible starvation
Unless you buy food or cook, chances are you are trying to make a roll of bread last the rest of the week. The struggle is real. The weight you might have gained during winter break is going to come in handy when you return to a food-less apartment.
5. Roommate conflicts
No more bedroom for yourself or alone time. Now you have to return to the dorms and share a room. If you don't like your roommate, then this must not be a happy time for you, especially when they don't wash their dishes.
6. No more 9+ hours of sleep
Remember when you could sleep in until 1 am? Or when you got 10 hours of sleep? Yeah, that feels like a distant memory now. Now, we have to go back to the sleepless nights, especially when midterms and finals begin approaching....
In all honesty, it's only a few weeks since classes began. As the days pass, you will start finding your pace. These first weeks will look scary, but as long as you pace yourself and believe in yourself and all that cheesy stuff, winter quarter will end in no time.
