This week has not been great. I am not 100% sure why but I feel like all the pressure has been getting to me. Picking classes for next semester, trying to get jobs, not getting my work done, all of it has really been weighing on me. Unfortunately, this is part of college and especially part of college during a pandemic. The “fun” parts really seem to have gone away and all I am left with is remembering how great it used to be and how I am frustrated with myself for not being more on top of things. Making big choices is tough! All I want to do is go back to freshman year when I was still figuring things out and reaching out to professors and meeting new people. Now it’s making sure I have a good GPA and a job offer. This point in my life, a point of “transition”, is when I need support and besides my mom sending me laundry detergent I don’t feel like I have any. Zoom class makes me feel so detached and like nothing matters really. I want to be normal again, I want to run into my friends in the E-quad. I want to laugh walking away from KAP. I want my friends back. I want to hand in a homework assignment on paper. I want to not be nervous walking around. I want my life back. I love USC, I want my school back.
