Little to say, I’m an elementary education major and am currently taking an educational psychology course. In high school, I was one of the most motivated students in that school. I involved myself in clubs, activities, leadership positions, and extra-curriculars. When I got to college, I realized that you could get by without trying too hard.
C’s get degrees, right?
As I’m studying last night, for this specific education course, I literally read a section that stated something along the lines of “students self-handicap themselves by getting away with doing what has to be done, but not giving their full effort.” I started laughing because from there on, I was reading descriptions of my life. “Procrastination often exists in these students.” Line after line, sentence after sentence, my life was being described in definition of educational psychology.
Maybe it’s a good thing I took this course because now I understand the psychology of why I don’t try? But the best part about studying was that this morning during the final I actually did really well. I mean, it’s not that hard to take a test about your life? hahaha.
I’m thinking I will try a little more next semester. Because knowing I’m a student that can be defined from a professor as a “self-handicapping student” kinda, maybe freaks me out.
As much as I want to say it helped me out with this semester, I honestly still just want to watch Netflix and eat cookies all day.
So maybe, I’ll just become a college dropout. I can find a cool place in LA and live in a world of dreams and unicorns. Maybe I’ll even find a rich husband?! Wow. Jk. But really.
If ANYONE still needs to buy me a Christmas present. Here’s a cute tank top. K thx.
Good luck with finals y’all. May the odds be ever in your favor.
Peace and blessings. xoxo.
