In my opinion the question “Who Do You Think You Are?” is really meaningless, because the person who is sitting here and writing this blog is just me. Whatever I think shows how I interpret different things, whatever I do shows how I solve problems, and whatever I perform decides how people look at me.
I think I am just the person I am.
Now, as a college student, there are three top concerns about my freshman year at Baruch College.
Firstly, I have to develop self-study skill. When I was in high school, teachers usually taught us everything we supposed to know and summarized it for us, which made me spend just a little time to study at home. However at college, it’s on the opposite side. For every class, teacher assigns homework for us to read the next chapter on the text book. And then, on the next day, he just goes over the main idea with us and leaves everything else for us to figure out by ourselves instead of covering all of them. It forces me to spend a lot of time at home learning it by myself, which I would never have to do in high school. Therefore a self-study skill is very necessary at college, and I have to develop it as soon as possible.
Secondly, I have to develop my own social network. As a business student, although I need to study hard on my courses, it doesn’t mean I have to be a nerd. I should participate in many clubs and act energetically to make a lot of friends using my free time. Because when I graduate from college, get into the society and start my business, I need friends to help me in many different ways. For work, we can either share some information or corporate to do a project; for private, we can either hang out to relax ourselves or solve some personal problems if we need. Therefore I need to figure out the way of making friends and develop my own network.
Thirdly, I have to develop my time management skills. I am the kind of person who really knows how to waste time. I can spend whole day watching movies, chatting with my friends, or just lying on my bed without thinking anything. Then at the end of that day when I am ready to sleep, I feel so sorry about losing another day and hope I can get tomorrow fully used. But guess what? The same thing happens again on the next day. Therefore I always feel so stress out when there comes the deadline of some homework or project that is really important for the class. I have to change this situation right now, because if I keep doing this, I will definitely fail all my classes and harm my future plans.
I, a freshman at Baruch college, with three top concerns in mind, hope to change myself into a better way for my future.
