While I am not a summer person, the best part of this time of year is back to school season. I love stationery, organizing and planing. This is the one time a year where supplies are at their lowest price with all the crazy back to school sales. Not to mention it is when supplies get a facelift from the usual dull office supplies section. Why is that?
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.
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.
Before each semester starts, I nerd out on school supplies to see if anything is “needed”. One of my favorite times of the year is honestly back to school shopping. The spring semester for college is not as exciting as there are no hyped up deals or ads. However, I do still enjoy going through all my supplies and organize what I may need based on each course.
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.
