    Its my second semester of college now first one was a battle in of itself! One of the things that helped me get thorugh was creating this account and listening to music watching funny vids etc. took me at least middle of October end of October to finally know what I was doing wrong and how to fix my study routine so I can get better grades. As time went on I was able to slowly turn things around and pass first semester but ended up failing math. so glad most of my professors were understanding and caring. growing up is really tough when its your first time but itll slowly improve and fall into place just give it some time I call my parents everyday to tell them how Im doing. Im hoping to start this semester with a good start

    @bastiq14: The key to your second semester success, in my opinion, is that you have established a routine.

    A healthy routine should help to prioritize your needs & commitments, thereby focusing much less on what you think should be one's college experience.

    This is the best thing that I have read on CC, possibly *ever*. Yes @basitq14, it is. Those of us who have had to grow up more than once know the truth of it: it's never easy, but it is hardest the first time. You go, kid!
