okay. I am very active today… many topics from me
now, that I am at university (first weeks) I started noticing I am not as intelligent as others.
Some people has this very broad terminology, are creative, fast and their presentations looks waaay better and are way more detailed.
Well, I hope you know what I mean.
I know my intelligence is average. I just thought I will have 0 problems at university, but… now I see that I do have them.
now I have this existencial crysis and I think - what will I do if I won’t graduate. Will I find a normal job.
maybe I am in a hurry. Maybe everything will be alright… just sharing thoughts.
When I started taking online classes at community college I was intimidated by the other students work. I thought their writing was superior to mine and that they were more intelligent. Then I looked at their writing closer and discovered I wrote as good as any of them. Maybe the perceived superiority of your fellow students intelligence is just an illusion. A lot of my peers wrote their papers to sound good but most of their work was not better than mine.
this gives me hope…
I don’t know if it’s just an illusion, but I will try my best to graduate from this course. Even if I don’t succeed- I have this idea now that I already did enough. Somehow I graduated from college. Maybe I’ll be not the most sucesfull person ever, but I will try to do my best…
Just I started thinking that masters degree is actually to high for me. I fear the whole paper writing thing.
And thanks for hope!
As you progress through academia you will be confronted with people who know more than you or are just flat out smarter than you. This can be a humbling experience, but also a stimulatimg experience. It is up to you if the glass is half full or half empty.
