Then I start my second year at college, two out of three years. This winter I’m half finished with the bachelor! I have understood more of being a student and learned from my mistakes. I can not exactly say that the first year has gone painless, because I’ve had challenges throughout the year, but I’m not good either when it’s going to be able to sit down and just learn.
As you know, I have hypothyroidism, which means that I can not get the results I want in a simple way. I have symptoms where the concentration is easily absent or that I only manage small sessions. I’m really struggling to just start doing a session and stay out for 1 hour. Another symptom I’ve annoyed is that I have not so much memory anymore, as I would have liked. I struggle to remember a few sentences just after I read them. So I do not understand how to learn to learn, because I see no improvement.
But as I said, I’m going to get better and to do that I have to get more organized. I will have small sessions in 1 hour each day, where I work on a subject whether it is what I have reviewed from today’s lecture or whether it is an improvement to tomorrow’s lecture. I will have pennies where all the notes are going into, for more overview of everything. And not least, be better off asking for help. In the first year, I have taken it all too easily thinking that this is easy and thus easy to learn by myself. Thus, I can either ask the lecturer or send mail. As mentioned, they are the ones who have answered and it is the ones who make the exam. It’s not always advisable to look for the answer online and just think that’s the right one. Most often they can overcomplicate the terms and you still remain empty.
Thus I will be more organized, take small sessions every day and ask for help. I hope it can bring me better results than it has done this year. But it’s like being a student, you’re learning on the road and we’re lucky enough to fix those mistakes!
