Life is Too Short, Be Happy
Spring time when you’re in school can mean a lot of different things. It’s getting warmer, and maybe your motivation to study is waning. You might be counting down the days until your last final is over and you finally have free time. Most likely, you’re also scrambling to fill out applications and rehearsing your interview answers to land that perfect summer internship. Internships are extremely valuable for getting real life experience before you actually work. They’ll likely give you a leg up when you’re looking for careers after graduation. However, sometimes the stress that comes with an internship or the stress of failing to get an internship, can outweigh the benefits.
Summer breaks don’t exist once you’re in the “real world.” As a rising senior, I’m hyper aware that this is likely the last year I’ll be spending my summer days driving around with my high school friends and curling up by my window with a pile of library books and a cup of tea. As important as it is to push yourself to do work, these summer break moments are something that you won’t get forever, and it’s entirely possible to get a job without having a million internships.
It can be easy to fall into the trap of feeling like a failure when all of your friends have internships every semester. It’s hard not to compare yourself to pictures of friends working at huge companies. After a constant barrage of work and exams and clubs it’s hard not to feel like you should be doing something. But taking care of yourself, and taking time to relax is doing something. It prevents burnout, and sets you up for a better school year. So the next time you see photos of your friends at their exciting job, know that staying at home and focusing on you is just as important.
