Now that my first semester at Baruch College is nearly complete. It was very stressful and tough. I expected my college life would be really tough, and it was true. When I was in high school, I talked to my friends who took AP classes. Everybody said that you cannot compare AP classes with main stream courses. So I was nervous about going to college, worrying about getting good grades and meeting new people. This semester was not the best semester. I felt like I should have worked harder. I always compare college life and high school life. Getting grades like B in main stream classes in high school never satisfied me even though English as my third language because I aimed higher and wanted to reach AP classes level. But once I took classes in Baruch, the reality was different. AP level classes are way harder than regular classes. I wished I could get out of high school early and take college classes, but now I actually wish to go back. Since this was not my best semester, I would work harder doing things deducting my leisure times to do better in second semester.
