10 Emotional Struggles You Face As You Approach The End of 2nd Year
Time really does fly. The end of second year is soon approaching, third year will be upon you after summer and you’re still yet to get out of that first year mindset.
1. You come to the realisation that uni doesn’t last forever.
You spent your first two years thinking, “third year is ages away!” except now it’s not. Who wants to juggle a dissertation and all the pressures of final year? No thanks.
2. The thought of writing a dissertation makes you want to shudder.
Especially when you still can’t find your way around the library. Awkward.
3. You constantly break down every time someone asks what your plans are for after uni.
I DON’T KNOW!
4. You worry that this is the last time you’ll be going out on week nights.
All you hear is that there’s so much work. Do third years even go out!?
5. You thought you were still immune from responsibility yet people keep telling you to get work experience for summer.
And you’re just like, help me please.
6. Suddenly you’re worrying about your emotional stability and maturity.
In your head you’re still a fresher.
7. Talking to third years makes you want to cry.
You thought they’d ease your concerns – they didn’t. You’re just not ready for that commitment.
8. You doubt whether a year is long enough to prepare you for the big bad world.
Oh well, you can always do a masters.
9. And cry every time you think about looking for graduate jobs.
10. But the biggest challenge is getting out of the ‘I can leave it to a week before’ mentality regarding essays.
Because you know that won’t fly in third year.
At least you have one whole summer between then and now.
