At times I have that hunger for knowledge, where I crave to
know something new, something interesting, to push and challenge my brain. I
consume knowledge like a homeless scholar and become full with the satisfaction
of knowing I'm furthering the development of my mind.
Well now I’m past that point. I’m exhausted and I have to
finish what’s on my plate although clearly I'm full, bloated, and my stomach is
vocally protesting. I love learning, but quite frankly at this point I’m
struggling. Spring break seems like a mere figment of my imagination. I have
friends in other schools that have experienced this phenomenon, but not I—not
yet. Things aren’t bad, but I’ve noticed after a certain point the sponge that
is my brain stops soaking up information like it used to. That tends to make
midterms a bit more difficult. It's at this point that I start realizing that I
need to develop my concentration and determination. I need to try harder, of
this I am aware. It’s hard, but you have to at least try. Things are okay. This
is college. This is Centre College for goodness sake, and nothing is going to be easy. Everyone here is
simply trying to push through the final stretch.
At some point in my life, I believe that’s one of the
reasons I wanted to come here, because I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, and I
wanted a challenge.
What in the world was I thinking…wish me luck!
