Hard Decisions You Make Every Single Day As A Student

Written by Christine Rees

You’re probably wondering what these hard decisions could be. After all, you’re a student.

Your responsibilities consist of going to class, getting work done, eating, sleeping, and socializing before doing it all again the next day. Am I right? Well, there are hard decisions hidden there.

What about the small choices you make that impact the rest of your day? These decisions can lead you down a path of productivity or procrastination, and sometimes doing the right thing can be HARD.

For example:

Go to that 8AM class or hit snooze?

Sometimes we get to that class with an inability to stay awake. It happens to the best of us. 

Snack on an apple or go on a coffee date with friends?

Obviously, that’s enough. 

Sit next to the cute guy or be content living your lonely life?

Okay, you won’t be alone FOREVER, but when you can’t gain the courage to talk to the person you’re crushing on… it can feel that way.

Go to a party or stay in?

This literally sounds like my dream job. 

Start studying or watch the countdown until the next Netflix episode plays?

It’s too late, it’s playing. Might as well keep watching… 

Take a shower or hide that greasy hair in a messy bun?

Whatever you’re feeling, just go with it. Unless your friends are giving you real judgy looks this morning.

Order take-out or create a concoction with whatever food you have at home?

I guess that’s settled then. 

Go to the gym or just… no?

It’s the thought that counts, right? 

Put off laundry another day or actually have clean clothes?

It’s not a myth! There’s a washing machine inside the house!

Buy another coffee to stay awake or just sleep already?

That assignment isn’t going to write itself.

We get it. Student living can be tough when you have these hard decisions to make, but you’ve got this. Additionally, if you need some encouragement, read A Guide to Time Management for the Post-Secondary Student and make good choices!
