Backstory: I applied to a higher up type of university back in early 2020. Got through phase 1. They liked my application. Made it to phase 2: the interview. Of course due to covid, it’s over zoom. There’s about 5 of us and one interviewer(not the advisor, different person). I feel confident, blah blah. Anyways. I went over with my advisor how it’d go, and to not get too personal and the types of questions we’d be asked. I’m so open so I’m feeling good. We get into the questions. He says “Megan: biggest life lesson; GO” I’m like........ can I have a moment to think???? He’s like uh ok. And I’m spewing out random things I’ve been told in therapy (it’s an interview for psych grad school). He says “...uh alright we’ll come back to you”. Needless to say I didn’t get in 🙃 Now: I’ve applied to two local universities and I’m waiting to hear back for interviews. I’m effing terrified the same thing will happen. I thought I did the right thing by asking if I could have a moment to think, because I treated that as a professional interview. But with the interviewers confusion, I felt obligated to answer right away. I know I should tell the two schools about my worries. I am confident. I know I have it in me to succeed- I know that. I just feel as though the first school handled the situation poorly. Am I wrong?

I start classes on February 1. I am going to be sad when I finish. I love school. I was debating going for a second certificate which is only one extra class. What I really want to do is an associates but I can’t afford it ☹️

I’m deeply frustrated about the fact that WE DO NOT HAVE A SEMESTER BREAK. Are we meant to work till we can’t work anymore during our semester?

I’m frustrated at the fact that some of my exams have little clarity so far. I’m angry at the lack of clear and timely announcements that we all require as students at all times. It’s essential to get updates as often as we can

With distance learning being online does anyone deal with “digital eye strain” or “computer eye”? With midterms starting tomorrow my eyes burn so badly from having class online, reading and studying online so much. How do you deal with this?

My roommate reported my dog to the animal shelter for a bite. She told me two weeks ago that he bit her but when she showed me it looked like a hickey on her upper thigh and I thought she was laying because she doesn’t like me. I love my dog, he is not agressive, and is a small cocker spaniel. Now there’s a chance he’ll get impounded and a citation, but he might get euthanized. She won’t answer her phone and hasn’t been to the apartment in a week, which is normal for her. I’m so scared and anxious and honestly I can’t focus on anything. I can’t even talk to the shelter because they’re closed.

I’ve taken a break from university since March 2020, however I’m really curious as to what it’s like for those that have continued or started again. How have things changed? Do you feel like your learning experience is similar?

I’m in the middle of final exams. My stress levels are through the roof and I have spent time worrying about things intensely without being able to predict what to do. It’s the lack of understanding of my outcome which triggers my anxiety heavily and makes me worry about failing my semester on an overall and lacking the performance which I need to be able to pass.

So I graduate with my BS in Psych this semester and I honestly feel like I never got the time to really enjoy myself and figure out who I am. I’ve been in school since I graduated highschool never took a real break . Will it be a bad thing if I take a break educationally after I graduating like I have a well paying job (not in my field of degree but eh I like it) so I would like to do some traveling or a nice vacation and finding myself after I graduate instead of going straight into my field of work or deciding to bck to school to obtain my masters 😓😓

I’m finding myself tired out but worried that taking a break before my next exam will take away my chances to do well. Do you think that this is true? Will I really be losing out on doing well? Or do my chances improve if I take time to rest before completing another exam?

I honestly really want to cry right now. I took a class last fall and barely passed it but didn't learn anything so I'm retaking it now. But i can't wrap my head around one of the most fundamental concepts and I think my brain is fighting itself - obviously I want to learn it, but I think part of me is refusing because of subconscious associations with issues from last semester

So I’m a mature student at 43 and I’m doing a masters with students mostly half my age. I’m pretty bummed today as I’ve just had my first mark back and it’s a pass but less than I wanted. I know I shouldn’t compare myself to others but can’t shake this funk

Being on academic warning has be trying to be a perfect patty so I don’t mess up this semester. But I can say that I am maintaining 2 B’s & a C in my classes. I Pray I can keep this up and end the semester on a good note. Don’t know what I’d do if I was to get suspended

I begin studying for a crisis worker certification with American association of suicidology in about a month. Super nervous! But Im really excited too, Im hoping thiers online webinar is a bit easier for me seeing its not as structured as an entire organized course that feeds information in a more appealing way for me to understand its content. Fingers crossed 🤞🏽 has anyone ever gone through webinars and can you tell me what it was like for you? Ive never done one before.
