Despite its chemistry connotations, the title is actually a reference to that Grimes and Bleachers song. It’s one of my happy-ing traxxx. (The actual song is called Entropy, and you can listen to it below:)
Almost two months into uni and I think I can finally give an accurate assessment of the whole sitch. Some Real Observations From a Real and Sometimes-Flummoxed University Student:
- Study smart, yo. Not necessarily harder or longer, but smarter. This is a skill I’ve defs gotta nail in the upcoming weeks before finals rear their ugly visages before my shocked and unprepared figure.
- Pack food. You will get hungry/get the munchies studying and it will suck to find yourself stuck without a lunch on a campus full o’ overpriced dishes from the Mystery Food Group. I’m currently living off of lentil soup (of course), yakitori fried rice (heavenly), bananas, raspberries, and those little SnacKit tuna-and-rice-cracker packages you can buy in bulk from Costco. It’s more satisfying than you might think.
- Get enough sleep. It’s hard and it won’t happen every night, but try to get at least enough z’s to guarantee you fall asleep during lecture/lab/catch stuff on fire in said lab/etc etc etc.
I’ll add more tips as I think of them in future posts, but for now I’m going to 1) do some exercise and 2) hit the hay. Why? Because sleep. Sleep is why. Zzzzz.
