What I’ve Learned So Far in Uni

I still hate studying

It’s currently 6:18 pm. Ask me how much studying I wanted to get done today, versus the amount I actually got done. Let’s just say the whole concept of studying makes me a very very sad girl.

Just because a course is a “lab” instead of a “lecture”, doesn’t mean it is any easier

Even though they usually don’t have a final exam, there is still struggle of having to complete a million assignments throughout the entire semester.

It’s important to exercise 

Broken escalators--or, "temporary stairs"--are no fun, but at least you get a good 15-30 seconds of cardio in for the day!!!!!

And by “exercise”, I mean running from the subway station to catch your train, or being forced to take the stairs against your will when the escalators at the Ted Rogers Building or Cineplex theatre are not working.  But if you want to go above and beyond and actually go to a gym or something, that’s cool too!

Sometimes one hour and two hour classes seem 10 times longer than a full three hour lecture

Food is much more attractive when you can’t afford it

Getting involved and immersing yourself in the campus culture (and the city) really enriches your university and social life

There are so many opportunities on campus to get experience doing what you want to do

I never thought I’d be writing blog posts (something I really enjoy doing in my spare time), or seeing advertisements around campus for job/volunteer opportunities for students interested in a variety of fields or wanting to develop a variety of skills

Being stressed is normal, inevitable, and ultimately pointless

Stress happens, and it sucks, but we should all try and do our best to minimize this unwanted emotion.  I feel like being stressed just creates more stress, and then that turns into a panic attack and no one wants that, trust me.

Nothing compares to having Fridays off

Having a four day week is great, and having a three day weekend is even better…if you get what I’m sayin’.

I will never regret my choice in universities

I love my school, and attending Ryerson is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.  I hope you all feel the same come next September!
