Trouble for a First Year Student

I am currently in my first year of college, and so far I’ve been enjoying it. I’ve met a lot of new people, have had some pretty interesting classes with some fun professors, and have been loving the fact that I’m living away from home. There is one thing that has been getting to me, and that’s my computer science class. Aside from the first assignment, that class has been hard, and it’s only getting harder. Whenever I look at the assignments, it feels like I’m reading Greek. I’ve been using a computer hw website to make it through the assignments.

If I’m able to pass the midterm and final exam of this course, it will be a miracle. Our teacher is a nice guy and all and he tries his best, but his teaching style leaves us with a lot more questions than answers. Even when you go to him after hours and ask for help, it’s like every response is some kind of riddle meant to confuse our brains. Luckily the website has been able to help me and the other students, because without it, I think we would be failing, and that’s not a good thing to have happen in freshman year.

Even though the class is hard, I’m not going to give up. I could have dropped the class at a certain point, but I decided not to, because I know that I can make it to the end. Besides, I need to get to the end if I’m ever going to complete my major. The good thing about having a website that can help me with the tough assignments is that I can get through them much faster than doing them alone, so I can dedicate more time to reviewing the notes that I’ve been taking in the class.
