At first, starting University didn't seem as such a big deal to me. I really just thought of it as going back to school. What's the big difference, I thought. Well, it turns out there is a big difference. The first week of university sure made me see just how much I was wrong. Leaving aside the incredible amount of people who were everywhere (200 people in each lecture!), the amount of studying material was what really got me. It just felt like in the first two hours of university we covered the entire high school material, proved how much is infinite and what derivative actually means. None of that saying-your-name-and-your-favorite-animal introducing games. Straight to business. Yes, it was a bit intimidating at first, but I got used to it quite fast and I started enjoying the fact that I am taught the deep meaning of things. And I even got to know new people, without any silly party games.
Volunteering once a week tutoring English and math has also been challenging. In order for the student to understand me, I had to be very precise and very clear in my explanations and speaking. Nonetheless, I enjoyed this time very much, because it was a refreshing break and because I was glad to see the fast progress that the student was making.
This is it for this semester. See you soon!
