Reflecting on Your Life at UniversityOctober 27, 2015

You'll get varied responses from freshman students, and it will hardly change a few years later. It may be the fickleness of youth. It can also be the coursework. There are many items on the table, which leave little time to ponder the question. And older doesn't mean wiser.

If you have another deadline to beat, then you need a break. This might be the moment to think about your life at the university. Answer the following:

How do you want to spend your time at university? It's supposed to be your studies, but it's a given. And catching up on your sleep is not one of the answers. You have the time to tidy up your place, which you don't mind. You want to lie on the bed after hours of reading and writing. Then again, you don't want to miss the outdoors. It's arguably the best time for a stroll, and the colours inspire you. You don't mind spending some time with your housemates (or coursemates). These what make a satisfying time at university. There are other options, traveling being one of those things. Your choices will determine how your time (at university) will turn out.

What do you value the most? Earning your degree is the right response, without losing sight of other matters. How about friendship? You might want to keep in touch with your mates. They can help you along the way. Nothing wrong about lofty goals, but better watch out. You'll get too tired, and you might get sick.

Do you want to be exceptional in one skill? If you're aspiring to be a professional athlete, then you don't need to think long and hard about it. But you're a student at the university. You'll learn different skills. The market favours those who have many skills. The Jack of all trade, which sounds more appealing. You can't be good enough in writing, though. Always keep an open mind.

How do you see your course? Literature can be daunting, with all the reading list and assignments. Older students will attest they lose track of the time at some point. But it can be a rewarding experience. As long as your enthusiasm won't falter, then you have nothing to worry about.

What do you really want to do? This might be the hardest question. Don't be disheartened if you don't have an answer during your final year. It's natural to consider an academic career, while looking for other options. (Assuming you want a literary career.) If you're thinking of something else, then it doesn't mean you don't want to be a novelist. (The Internet is another option, but there's no guarantee.) As long as you keep a positive mind.
