Spectating University of Texas at Austin

It's about that time I spectate this Austin, the most liberal city in the state of Texas.

1. Academics
Hard as hell. No question about it. Time management here is already so tight if you live off-campus. The most important thing about academics here at UT is concentration. The homework assignments themselves are not very hard at all, but the tests are almost unbareable compared to the homework assignments. This means that you are expected to go above and beyond the easy assignments, explore new ideas and challenge yourself with harder problems in order to receive an A or a high-B (uncertainty still exists depending on your luck). UT is truly a school that demands a student's interest in higher education.

2. Living
I'd have to say, compared to UT San Antonio, living is a bit hectic. Everyday, time passes by really fast and you're wondering where all the time went at the end of the day. You just want maybe a little time for relaxation, but no time to relax, only time to panic and start working on what's due next.

3. Social
There are several advantages of being at UT than other schools for this category here, because there is so much room to meet people. 50,000 people in this school. This means that I know less than .1 percent of the students in this school. This is a bit ridiculous, but it's also a challenge to keep up the social life without messing up your grades.

Going further into this social life here, it sometimes gets annoying to see parties and everything on weekends. You'd figure that people would grow out of these things by the time they're 20, but, I guess not. *shrug* I hate being older than the rest.

4. Leasure
Leasure here absolutely sucks. This is probably due to the fact that UT is located in Downtown, but at least show a little decency in letting people do what they want. The only decent place I can go to practice some martial arts I learned in Korea is either the parking lot of my apartment or the public golf field right in front of the apartment. Also note that you are so deeply into this social and academic life that you don't have time to just sit down and focus on yourself or anything else for that matter. All you get to focus on is having fun and work; no God, no meditation, no thinking, no relaxing, no random sleeping, etc.

5. Involvement in Society
Involvement in society here at UT is great. You can join so many associations, groups, and programs and all you have to do is go to their meetings and act remotely like you care about the things they talk about and bam, you got another thing to put into your resume. The better way to look at it is to see that these are all good opportunites that anyone could pick up.



Conclusion:

You can definitely go to places from here. There are so many opportunities to take up but just as it is good (yes, I'm going into concept of duality) there's definitely room to mess up completely and screw up what you came to do. Keyword here is focus. Focus on what you need to get done and don't let anything get in the way. If something gets in the way, open up the arsenal and kill it. If you can't, then persevere and show everyone that you are tolerable and that you are tough.
