What aspects of college do you find particularly stressful? Please write about a few of them. Looking back on what you’ve written, do you see any patterns or common threads about what stresses you?

Looking back 10 weeks at Union, I think the most stressful aspect of being in college for me is time management. For the first fews week, I experienced a lot of stress as I constantly felt like I don't have enough time to do homework. I literally spent most of my time in the library. As the result, I did not spend much time hanging out with friends and enjoying various activities Union offer. The third week approached and I realized that was the dumbest thing I had ever done. I stopped focusing solely on my academic aspect and started to pay attention to other aspects, too.

You have five minutes to tell someone as much as you can to enable them to really “get” you, really know who you are. What are the most important things to tell him or her?

I love living! In this life, I want to live it to the max! No limit to what can be learned, no limit to what can be experienced. With this approach to life, I am repulsed by boredom, and complacency is ignorance to how much there is for a human to experience. Even with this mindset, Netflix binges and sleeping in is acceptable. You can't be too crazy about doing everything or you will burn out. But seize the day!

What extra-curricular activities have been most enjoyable/meaningful/important to you so far in college? Where do you put most of your time and energy outside of classes and studying? Are there activities that you do because they “look good,” apart from enjoying them? What do your choices of extra-curricular activities say about you?
I think that what makes extra-curricular activities meaningful is not necessarily what the activity is, but more who you're doing the activity with. I can say with 100% certainty that I originally joined a Minerva council in Freshman year because it was something my friends and I wanted to be involved in. I've participated in the council tirelessly over my time here, but as I grew further apart from my Freshman year friends, the council quickly became more of a chore than an activity I wanted to participate in.
