    I went through hardships when I was younger that has manifested into mild depression and anxiety as an adult. I believe the anger and helplessness I have from my father leaving when I was a child, have manifested into what I am experiencing now. It is controllable, but writing this paper, doing homework, and writing exams sometimes cause me anxiety, where I dread having to do them. I believe I am making a good decision in staying in university and finishing my degree, as I only have one year left to complete. My grades have suffered, but my family did not go through what they did, for me to drop out with one measly year left.…

    I was still a naïve high school student who thought getting through college would be just as easy as high school. With that being said I had a little more trouble trying to be a successful student since I’m also an athlete. I admit my fall semester was terrible and not acceptable. After finding out my GPA was a 1.76 for the fall I had thought my time at Our Lady of The Lake was done. I didn’t think my coach would bring me back for the spring but over winter break we spoke and he allowed me to receive a waiver that would make me eligible to compete in the spring.…

    I did succeed in making my grades but by the last months of the semester I realize that the stress that came with procrastination wasn’t worth in ad I started working on time management. In high school the words time management are repeated but never really explains. I grew up hating the simple idea of time management, but I have since learned that is means balance. It is easy to think of staying in and doing nothing but studies, but true time management is the balancing the responsibilities you must complete and the things you want to do. This realization has taught me that I can have a “fun” college experience without forgetting the reason I am at a university.…

    In the beginning of this semester, I remember what a nervous wreck I was and how much pressure was put on me. Attending my second semester at UNC Charlotte on academic probation was not my first intention whenever I moved to the city of Charlotte and made the new commitment of attending a four year university. Whenever I was told that I needed to attend a class two times a week so I wouldn’t be kicked out of school, I felt nothing but shame and frustration. I was certain whenever I mentioned to my parents and my girlfriend that I was on academic probation, they would be ashamed of me. I was wrong.…

    I stopped wanting to deal with the consequences of my actions. It would only get worse from there. I met the guy who would be the father of my children my junior year which progressed to me giving up homework completely. He was two years older than me and he was always wanting me with him rather than at school. So when the boy you supposedly love, tells you to go hang out with him if you are anything like me, you blindly go even though you know it's not the best option.…

    It resulted in me being so far behind in school that I was taking a few lower-classmen classes as an upper-classman. My dream of going to college was deferred and I had my mind set on enlisting into the Marines right out of high school.
