This past Tuesday I completed another semester, and I was glad. Glad that it was over. These past couple of months have been really tough, both academically and emotionally (deadly combination). I’m still struggling with the math classes, which are the classes that I have left for me to get my degree. It can be disheartening, and it makes me feel like a failure when I can’t pass those classes. I’m good at everything else: history, psychology, science, programming, you name it. When it comes to math, it’s a different story, especially with my anxiety mixed in with all of it.

I’ve been learning to reduce those thoughts I get about failure through therapy, but it’s a work in progress. Even though I still have some time to go before I get my degree, I’m trying to make the best of it by taking different classes, even if they’re not related to my field. Another motivation is finally getting my portfolio up, along with some other projects, which will keep me busy and with a more optimistic outlook.

It’s all about picking yourself up, trying your best, and seeing a positive, even when it’s a ‘negative’ situation. I’m trying, and I will get better with stopping those negative thoughts.

  1. It really isn’t easy! I had one class – statistics – between me and my associates in science, but I ended up dropping it after the first week because of anxiety, and just got my associates in arts (which I needed more classes for, but none of them were math) to transfer to get my bachelor’s. I’m glad you’re getting better with handling those negative emotions – it’s a struggle! <3
