Who am I? That is indeed a good question. Can a person even be defined in words? Well instead of just avoiding this question I might as well take a crack at it. I’m a son, a brother, a friend, an enemy, a student, etc. Is that enough for someone to know who I am? Probably not. Allow me to expand, my name is Intesar (yes, it is practically impossible to pronounce correctly the first time around) I”m 18 and I’ve lived in Brooklyn my whole life. I’m a good friend (or I like to think so) and an attentive listener (that is if you have anything of value to say). I’m a usually quiet person and kind of moody. If you try to talk to me in the early morning you probably won’t get a verbal response from me, just hand gestures and nods (I don’t mean to be rude, I’m just not a morning person). I guess the solution to this predicament would be that I should drink coffee, or at least some intake of caffeine. As shocking as this may sound I don’t drink coffee. One might ask as a response to that, how do you plan on surviving college? How can you go through a day of class after a sleepless night working on a paper? To answer your question those questions is that I’ve managed to get through sleepless nights in high school with out caffeine, so it shouldn’t be to difficult in college right? Who knows maybe this will be one of the changes I’ll go through in college, I might have to start relying on coffee.
College is definitely different from high school. Many of my high school teachers would say over and over that college professors won’t spoon feed you, they were right. In College students are more independent, we are given more responsibility and freedom. There is an intense amount of reading but less writing assignments, we are given the due dates of all of our assignments in advance. In high school we were given the dates of assignments a month ahead at best. I think College will definitely challenge me more than high school, I’m definitely going to have to study more instead of fooling around during my breaks, it seems to me that playtime (high school) is over, its time to get serious and act like responsible adults.
