THIS JUST IN: I'm Actually Not That Smart
Community College was too easy for me. I never studied, never went to class, and never bought my textbooks, but I still got a 3.88 cumulative GPA. I was at the top 4% of the entire college! The only reason why I didn't get a 4.0 was because I skipped classes and sometimes missed my exams. I even joined the honors program and even then the classes were still a joke. Inevitably, I lost all my studying skills. I became less disciplined and more lazy. I can honestly say that community college didn't prepare me at all for UCLA. In fact, I feel that high school was more challenging than community college. I was lulled into a false sense of security. I thought I was a genius and that studying was for noobs. Now, I'm fucked. Today, I decided to be a good student, and I opened up my Microeconomic Theory book to get a head start for the week. I'm on the second chapter, and I'm already starting to feel overwhelmed. I understand most of the the concepts and theories so far, however, I'm already having trouble on some stuff, and it's only the second chapter! Envelope theory? Young theorem? What the fuck does this shit mean? I guess I underestimated UCLA. Any transfers out there have any advice for me on how to stay on top this quarter? I don't want to fuck up.
