Year 2 IS difficult

-rant in English starts-

October 18th. I am already exhausted.

Even if proper university life have only resumed for about two weeks. On Fridays, I am just so, so excited that everything is finished, at least for now.

Year 2 IS difficult, and I am only beginning to get that.

(Although in relative terms, anything is difficult to my year 1 though lol)

The biggest difference for me this compared to the last was the sense that you really should be getting on with something. When you were in year one, it sounded -certainly to me- that procrastinating on Facebook is the perfect activity on Friday nights. Of course is it. (Substitute Facebook to any other things you like to do yourself)

But at Year 2, that’s just time wasting. Now that I am actually doing (trying to) the reading properly, the week fills up fairly quickly. And if there’s time that I don’t have to study academic texts, the so-called free time, you feel like you ought to be getting on with more things in life.

It’s not just for getting a job or enriching the CV either. (I mean, of course these are good things) I just suddenly felt that the bliss times of not having to worry about too much in life would come to its inevitable end, and really these are the times to experience as many thing while I still can.

I don’t know whether how long I can cope with doing things that I want to do, but hey this is uni, results+social life= no sleep… We’ll just have to see how it goes!

大學重開至今才不到兩個星期,我已經累透了。

在星期五,所有課都結束了以後,心裡只有一個想法:事情終於完結了。當然,兩天以後,所有事情又再來。

大學第二年果然很難。

(其實和我的Year 1比較,什麼也很難…)

對我來說,今年最大的分別,就是很有「我應該要做點事」的感覺。老實說吧,上年我在Facebook上有事無事的點來點去,一看就是一整個晚上…

可到了今年,當我有認真的在上課的時候,所謂的自由時間已經不多。然後,在剩下來的時間,好像應要做些有意義的事。

填滿CV固然是這樣做的理由之一。但最重要的是,大學已是我最有空,最應該做點其他事情的時間。我不知道我何時才會真正沒氣力再做什麼,但還是要繼續的享受大學的生活!

ps.這其實是本博的第200篇文章,以一篇牢騷文來紀念實在是適合不過。
How fitting that the 200th blogpost is a random rant on how ‘tough’ life is lol
