You’re Having Breakdowns Too?

You’re Having Breakdowns Too?

Welcome to post secondary, where the workload has tripled along with the expectations. Bunch of deadlines all coming up at the same time? Great. Exams, papers, assignments due within one-week span? No problem. Isn’t getting a higher education fun? *Insert eye roll here*

We all joke about having routine “mental breakdowns” throughout college. It is completely normal to experience periods in which you feel utterly exhausted emotionally, mentally and physically. This is not a cake walk, but if you’re moving forward, be proud of yourself. I still don’t understand why I feel surprised when someone tells me they too, have recently lost their mind due to the stressors of school. It happens to all of us, and you should not perceive yourself as weak or incapable of handling it due to that. Finding a way to balance all other aspects of life with school can be difficult, but be easy on yourself and have faith you will eventually find that balance. Take the time to recharge, go grab that coffee, hang out with friends, watch some Netflix and waste some time, you are only human. Taking some time to participate in self care is the best way to get through those periodic states where you want to cry forever and become a burrito.

Yet if you are finding it’s getting harder and harder to surface from those slumps, one of my favorite things about GPRC is the resources available to students. One of those resources is Peer Counselling. Never underestimate how good it feels to go see someone you don’t know well and ugly cry in front of them for an hour. I speak from experience. Channel that inner Kim K and bawl your head off.

Essentially all I am trying to get at, is that you are not alone. Every other student is experiencing or has experienced what you are feeling, it’s okay to talk about it, laugh about it, but as long as you know it’s normal and that you will get through it. Utilize the support systems at hand and believe in your ability to manage this. I like to think of my breakdowns as signs I’m doing well, because otherwise I wouldn’t care so much.

GPRC Wolves Athletes of the Week: February 12, 2018

GPRC Wolves Athletes of the Week: February 12, 2018

Ethan Nashim

Hailing from Lac La Biche, AB, hitter Ethan Nashim is enrolled in Open Studies at GPRC and has had an exciting rookie season with the Wolves. As a left-handed attacker with a good jump and a whippy arm-swing, Ethan has grown to be a solid offensive weapon in the Wolves’ arsenal.

He is hungry to learn and improve every day which shows in his dedication to weight training, and excitement to compete on the court, exemplifying the effort put in daily with his teammates.

 

 

Tristan Moon

Second-year Business Administration student Tristan Moon is a very versatile athlete, as he has shown this season through playing both as a middle blocker, and outside hitter. His ability to make both offensive and defensive plays is an asset to the team.

Tristan’s leadership qualities are seen on and off of the court, and as a Co-Captain he brings composure and competitiveness to matches and training, setting a high standard for our team.
