Adventures in College: Sophomore Surprise

So, much to my amazement, I am coming close to the midway point in the first semester of my sophomore year in college.

I guess Nationwide was right when it said “life comes at you fast.”

Now, at first, I was a bit apprehensive about my second year. I’d seen memes and stuff like this before:

But I’ve actually been rather surprised by how my own sophomore year is turning out thus far. Overall, I’d say it’s shaping up to be even better than my freshman year. I feel significantly less on edge this semester, and I’m finding more time to myself and to be with my friends on campus than I did last year.

I think part of it has to do with the fact that two of my classes this semester are online, which allows me to work at a steadier pace — I don’t even have to be on campus for class on Fridays! I’m also sure it has to do with the classes I’m taking; I haven’t written a single research paper yet, and to my knowledge, I won’t be writing very many at all (although I will have other big writing assignments, like scripts).

This is most definitely a welcome change of pace. But . . .

. . .

Wait a minute . . .

. . .

. . . did I just jinx it?

. . .

I just jinxed it, didn’t I?

. . .

. . . Darn.

Now wouldn’t it be hilarious if I wrote another post in a few weeks complaining about how complacent I had gotten?

. . .

To be continued. Possibly.



  1. I’ve always heard that Junior year is the tough one … if you make it through that, you’re basically good. Hopefully you’ll be able to keep enjoying this one, though! I don’t think I’ve had to write a proper paper since Sophomore year, so life has been good to me there at least!
