Stu-dying

Since I am a college student and have been for awhile the concept of studying is ingrained in my brain. All I talk about is how I need to study or how I should be studying and so on. The feeling of needing to be studying is never ending and I just feel guilty if I’m not.

The thing is though is that I hate studying. I love to learn, I love learning new things but the concept of attempting to memorize and practice the same thing over and over just seems so tedious.

When do you stop studying? When do you no longer feel like its taking over your life?

In school I lost who I am as a person because all I would do is study. What do I like to do for fun? What are my hobbies?

I understand school is important and I love learning, but I hate studying. I hate the idea that I’m going to be tested and quizzed on what I can memorize. Studying has taken the fun out of learning and I hate that.

I want to become a teacher to show kids that learning new things can be fun, it doesn’t have to be painful and unenjoyable. I want to show kids there are so many different ways to learn things and grow rather than doing homework and just repeating problem after problem.

Really, I just can’t wait for the day when I can stop studying, when I can stop being tested, and when I can go back to loving learning.

  1. I can relate! Spent many years under grad & post grad. Always hated tests! I longed for the days, where I’d no longer have to be tested, too….but I don’t think those day will ever come. Recently started studying “on line” German …and there it was, another test! 😦 Enjoyed your post!!! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  2. I hate studying too! Although I took a few college classes years ago, that I wanted to take, I did not get a degree. I have no regrets. I learned on the job, and in recent years have done my own learning through experiences, coaching from others, and books (to name a few). On my terms. I can’t image the challenges young folks deal with today. Don’t give up on your dream!!

    1. I really appreciate your comment! That means a lot and I won’t give up! I just can’t wait until I’m in the real world where exams don’t mean as much and aren’t as frequent.
