While you are in university it is an extremely overwhelming time. A balancing act of responsibilities, learning, relationships and more. Although I am thrilled to be done with university, I am sad to leave behind the student discounts. Often times students overlook these pros of being a student which they regret later on.
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.
This weeks has been hectic as most finals weeks are. Although, this is my very last day of the semester, it feels surreal. No more tests, quizzes or group project slackers. It’s crazy to think that it’s over.
Prior to the release of spring semester’s stress, fall semester creeps out from around the corner to commit to which halls you will walk in. Don’t stress out or blow off prep to creating next semester’s class schedule.
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.
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.
Every semester I think it’s going to get easier but the first day jitters always get me. Over the years I have realized that there are a few things that help make the first day a little easier.
