Well, this semester has finally come to a close! My last class of the year is tonight and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m really looking forward to a month of recuperation – I definitely need it. Grad school is even more mentally taxing than my undergraduate was, and there was a time when I never thought I’d say those words!
Over break I’m going to Orlando (of course) and to Pennsylvania to visit my family. I’m hoping to get in a lot of Disney World, sunshine, and then, on the flip side – snow on Christmas! It hasn’t snowed in PA for the past few Christmases, so I’m hoping Jack Frost will be visiting this year…
I learned how tough I was this semester. There was a lot of frustration, a lot of sleepless nights, and a lot of anxiety. But guess what – we all made it! I can guarantee you only learn to be stronger as college – and life – goes on.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL break. Eat lots of Christmas cookies and don’t forget to save some for Santa and his reindeer 😉
Keep moving forward.
Well, well, well, this semester came and went! This is my second semester so I still have a little while to go, but I can definitely say that this semester has taught me a lot. I’ve learned to be patient with myself and technology, and the online courses I had took me outside of my shell a bit. I know the IDT program will only continue to do this as I progress along.
I am happy that break is here though and the main reason is because my trip to California is drawing near (Dec. 27th). That day is also my son’s 18th birthday, and so I’m excited for him as well.
I am very elated to be apart of this blog group and have enjoyed reading others’ blogs when I had time & found them to be interesting. I found blogging to be very comfortable and yet I hope you found some interest within my blogs too.
See you guys next semester!
Next week is Finals week. My Junior year so far has been filled with many highpoints and some low points. But overall, I would have to say that it was pretty successful! Academically, I am doing well; and organizationally I am excited to see what 2nd semester brings! We will be traveling to Chicago again for the 2017 Enactus Regional Conference and presenting our efforts with the Criminal Justice Ministry (CJM). Hopefully, we will advance to Kansas City for the 2017 National Conference! Even though I am practically half way done with my Junior year, I still cannot believe that I am HALF WAY done with JUNIOR year! It is crazy! Second semester will fly by!
As for what my plans are for Winter Break: Regain lost hours of sleep, visit family, & work on a project that is currently in development with a Fortune 500 company. I cannot disclose anything beyond that just yet. Until next year guys, stay classy!
For those of you who live in the dorms, you probably thought you could live off Ramen noodles and Mac N Cheese. However, you may realize after Thanksgiving break, that you are getting tired of that food. Who would have thought?? Right? Well if you want to mix it up and try something different, try these recipes all that can be made in your dorm room!
Some of the recipes include southwestern stuffed sweet potato, vanilla yogurt and berry parfaits, and mason jar Greek salad. Give these healthy recipes a try and tell me what you think!
