Crazy to see how time flies! I can’t believe this semester is almost over, it went really fast for me, and I am sure for a lot of other people too. Even though these last three weeks will be stressful, I want to recall that this semester has been great. It has been a semester of learning and good experiences. I really have enjoyed my major classes, I started doing observations practices at different schools and it has been a great way to get involved in the field of education. I have met very nice people, and I have explored new places in this beautiful city. So glad of completing this year, and so ready for the next one! Good luck to everyone with all the final assignments and exams!
Summer is around the corner!
When you’re a college student April is probably the worst month of the whole year. April is the last month before you’re released from summer, meaning that at this point you have multiple papers to finish, exams to study for, trying to maneuver your next year schedule, housing applications, and applying to every summer job/internship available in your area, while everyone keeps asking about your summer plans. At this point, you can’t even find time to go for a run or a quick coffee at your favorite spot. You thought last year senioritis was bad, well springitis is even worse!
Here are some questions that will most likely recognize if you have springitis:
- Should I do my homework? Or should I lay out in the 80 degree weather?
- Did the teacher say group project?
- How am I supposed to gather a group of several people, who only want to think about summer. HOW!
- How many days left until I can leave?
- How many miles away is the beach?
- 20 Days. (5 minutes later) is it still 20 days?
- Excuse me, professor, what is your attendance policy?
Springitis is a real issue. Repeat: REAL ISSUE. If you haven’t been affected by springitis I advise you to remain in the library, focused, and with a mask on. Unfortunately, I have come down with springitis, and my doctor prescribed ice cream, enjoying the weather, and the occasional study session. For those who haven’t felt the effect of summer being right around the corner, save yourself before it’s too late, and find a cure for the rest of us.
I am ready for this semester to be over. This time I had 3 group projects and 2 papers to write. On top of all that I have to study for 3 exams! Fortunately I do not have class this Friday and I am completely finished by next Friday. There is a raffle on Monday and I think that I have a good chance of winning. It is based on the number of seminars that I completed. I figured that most people would blow it off, since you have to commit to it every week. If I win, I will get $500. I deliberately did not make plans for this money because if I don’t win, I’ll just be more disappointed.
Then I have a week off to have fun! On May 12 is when I start my job at Nordstrom. I am going to be a sales associate. I hope that I can do well. I will be making $10 an hour plus commission! That is a lot of money for me since I used to work at McDonalds and get paid $8.75 an hour. I plan on saving a lot of the money that I make this summer and not spending it all.
As this semester is coming to an end, and I am stressing out because as much as exams have snuck up on me, they have clearly snuck up on my professors even more! All of my teachers are throwing multiple projects or papers at me right now, trying to make sure they cover all the material they said we would and sometimes I just want to be like “THIS IS NOT MY ONLY CLASS!” But alas, I don’t, and each semester I survive and over break wonder why I stressed so much during the school year!
I cannot believe that come May 13 I will have officially completed half of my college career! It really is crazy how fast time flies! I’ve been thinking about the last two years a lot the past couple of days, and I look back at the friends I had the first week of college compared to the smaller amount I have now, and I am really happy with the good friends I have! College has been great so far, and I cannot wait to see what this second half has in store for me!
But first…I need to finish this semester!
