I hope your last week of classes is going well!! I wish you all luck and motivation to finish strongly!
It’s the end of the semester and academic year, so I’d like to recap a bit of my year to you guys (if you’ll let me)..
A few of the exciting things that happened to me this semester were:
- I was able to go to NACA (National Association of Campus Activities) Convention in Baltimore back in February for FAB and ODK so that we would be able to bring back performers for campus!
- At the End of the Year Banquet for ODK this past weekend, I was sworn in as Secretary of ODK for the next school year!
- I also received the Exceptional Transition Leader at the Leadership and Service Awards Ceremony this past Saturday!
I don’t entirely remember many cons of this semester, so we’re not even going to acknowledge them 🙂
Next fall. So close, and yet so far away from where we are now. We don’t want spring to end because then summer comes around, and then we don’t want summer to end because then fall is here. But we can all agree that we don’t want to leave our friends for summer, but we won’t be able to wait until we get back for fall to see them all again! I am excited for the Fall Semester because I am finally starting to take a lot of speech-language pathology classes, and I have an art class to take as well. Oddly enough, all of my classes fall on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, I am a free woman!!
peace out everyone,
Hello, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful, relaxing Easter break — maybe with friends and family and/or doing something you enjoy. I (as usual) had tons of homework to do, but I did enjoy an Easter lunch with my dad’s family (got to see my two young cousins, always adorable and entertaining!) and an Easter egg hunt with my horses! They each found six eggs filled with clover, carrots, or marshmallows, and of course they loved it immensely. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, my horses are spoiled. 🙂
If you’ve read my past blogs, you’ll know this semester has been quite a bit different than last semester. At 18 hours, commuting, working, and just trying to stay afloat, it’s been stressful to say the least. The upcoming two weeks probably aren’t going to be much different, but I do feel better going into these final weeks than I thought I would at the beginning of the semester. I have three labs to wrap up, a presentation/report to give, lots of homework, and studying galore for finals, but then before I know it, it will all be over! Fortunately, I don’t have more than one final on any given day, so it won’t be too unbearable (I hope), and by May 6 at 11:59 p.m., I must have completed everything with my online class and will be done with my second semester of college. It’s hard to believe that when I return in August, I’ll be a sophomore. Note to self: time flies by much faster than you think!
Good luck to everyone with finals…hang in there, you’re just a hop, skip, and a jump away!
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.
