Cons of studying from home: i feel like I’m doing SO much and I’m big exhausted.

My current set up for my online classes
Since the whole semester got postponed until the end of april, we students weren’t able to meet until now & started a big a s s group chat now? They all seem hella nice & we helped each other out with our schedules - we need to chose our classes at monday & didn’t know how many classes we need or which classes might be important etc.
Hella glad that I joined this chat - actually thought about not joining it due my social anxiety. I’m still hella scared to post something, but it’s getting better :))
By now, you’re sick of hearing that you just need to apply yourself, or you aren’t trying hard enough. Nobody seems to believe that what you’re doing now is truly your best effort, and your below average grades aren’t enough for everyone around you.
Your friends think they “failed” a test when they got an 80% but your absolute best is a 75%, which they make fun of you for. Trying to keep your head above the water takes up all of the energy you have, and sometimes you want to give up.
I know this feeling so well.
My entire life I’ve struggled. I’ve always been the person who’s three steps behind everyone else, who just didn’t get it no matter how hard I tried. When my teachers, parents, and friends tried to help it just became more confusing for me.
I thought that I was dumb or broken, that I would never make it through school. I’ve had to repeat classes, have special education, and developed anxiety due to my teachers making me feel terrible about my grades. What my friends learn in a week I learn in a month, and what they learn in a month I learn in a year.
I was trying my hardest and no matter what, I still failed, but that’s okay.
It’s not about being smart or dumb, and your grades don’t define your worth as a person. The college you get into doesn’t make you worse than somebody else, and it’s okay if you need more help than others. You are putting in so much time, effort, and energy into doing your best and I wish everyone could see it.
You are intelligent, capable, and strong. You are going to succeed and find something that you’re good at; It’s okay if school isn’t something you’re good at. You are going to graduate on time with everyone else, go to college, and have a future that you’re happy with. You should be so, so proud of yourself for how far you’ve come.
I know the world is scary right now and the shift to online schooling might be taking a toll, but you got this. Wherever you are, I’m cheering for you!
03.28.20 Final exam grades came out and I got 99% on the animal physiology final. I ended up with a 3.9 this quarter which is great! I have not studied a whole lot over the break (which feels way shorter than last year), mostly because the only thing I have to work from is an old syllabus and a list of textbooks that were on reserve in the library which is obviously closed due to COVID. The genetics course I am taking in spring quarter (online) doesn’t have an assigned textbook, and canvas hasn’t been published yet. I start on Monday (9:00am), so hopefully the professor is tech literate and will publish canvas before then. Wish me luck!

Guys, if you’re out walking or running and you cross paths with someone (at 2m or more, stay safe everyone), please call out a greeting or respond to one. For us living on our own, that is THE ONLY interaction with have with an actual human being and it’s nice to exchange pleasantries with someone 🐛
