Don’t stress

My first week of my sophomore year was a stressful one. Luckily, it wasn’t as stressful as my previous college year. I’ve learned some techniques to overcome stress and how to manage my time better. As a freshman, I was scared during my first couple of weeks. When I got my first class syllabus, I…
