5 Life Lessons from 5 Years

AHHHHH!! Finally, I am officially a graduate! The journey to my bachelor’s has been a rocky five years. No, I did not take a semester off but rather was screwed by the counselors, again and again. This weekend has been filled with stress, anxiety, and joy in preparation and celebration of my class’es accomplishments. I’ll admit I almost walked out of my own graduation as it was extremely difficult for me to get through with my anxiety, the thousands of people and tight spaces.

Things I wish I knew before college…

College Language: Upper vs lower division courses

During my university transfer orientation, each of us sat with an instructor from our program. I was proud and prepared with a list of all the courses I took only to find out that some of them did not count. Yes, I had a couple of counselors that did not know that these courses would not count either, both courses had the same name. I went into those courses with the belief that they would be more in-depth, however, the opposite was true.

OOTW: First week of Spring 2018 College

This week was full of all kinds of emotions; excitement, anxiety, stress, disappointment, and fear. While this is my last semester of college figuring out what to wear was still a challenge. From the first semester of transferring to university from J.C. I was excited about the possibility to take ballet classes. However, these classes never fit into my schedule of required courses until this semester. Spring 2018 has been deemed the semester of new experiences.
