The week from dare I say it… hell is over. Come on, all you college students out there know what I am talking about, and all the ex-college students and even high school goers who have finals week, you can imagine how my week was. It was a week filled with constant studying, or should I say cramming, and trying to accomplish a never ending to-do list. But, I managed to get through it in one piece, and now I write this blog post victoriously. About 5 minutes ago I logged onto Blackboard just to make sure I had actually completed the correct homework assignment, and to check that there were not any surprise assignments due tomorrow, and there it was… my CIS midterm was posted. I immediately shut my eyes, I guess I thought if I pretended not to see it then I could pretend reality was not knocking at my door. I had been waiting all week to see this grade in particular because for this midterm, I do not think I have ever made a study guide that long before (15 pages… sometimes I overdue it, just a little) and I do not believe I have ever studied so diligently for anything in my life. And now, in front of me was the result of all my efforts, all my hard work. However, after finally gaining the strength to open my eyes and face the screen, I could not be happier. This whole first semester of college I have said Computer Information Systems is not my thing, but hey, maybe I am its’ thing because the results do not lie. Just kidding, it’s definitely a love/hate relationship, where hate mostly prevails.
To sum everything up, you have got to work for it. In better terms, in the words of Marlon Wayans, “Success is not a destination, but the road that you’re on. Being successful means that you’re working hard and walking your walk every day. You can only live your dream by working hard towards it. That’s living your dream.” So be patient, work hard, and know that your time will come.
