Hey, so i'm going into my soph year of uni, and i'm a bit really horribly nervous. i didn't do so hot last year, and i definetly never did well in highschool either. i know i'm smart and all, but i have some serious difficulty with motivation and getting work done. i've kinda been hoping that i could get some sort of advisor or mentor or something, but i don't know how. i mean, i don't want to just advertise for a mentor, but i'd like to find someone who'd be one without blatantly and delibrately assigning them that title. i feel like, i'll need a lot of support this year, because i've been through a real emotional time, and i just need the help to get me through things. my parents aren't the most supportive and motivational, and my academic advisors aren't really too personable. my dean seems really nice, but awful busy. i haven't met any profs yet, but i'll try to get to know them a bit better. i'll try joining clubs and things, but i'm just afraid i'll get frustrated trying so hard to meet good influences and not finding someone i can relate to and work hard for. so, any advice about what to do? i just need to find someone to help motivate me. i do really really well when i care about someone and i'll work hard for them. but i just can't do it myself very well, or at least not for very long. so. help?
