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?
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.
As an artist, sketching, doodling and so on are a huge part of my creative expression outlet. Since tablets came into existence, I have always been a more paper and #2 pencil kind of person. The first tablet I tried was a Samsung that came with a stylist specifically for drawing, I fell in love. However, after a couple years it starts to lag due to upgrades past it’s capabilities. Long story short, I decided to try the iPad for the first time when they came out with the Apple Pencil, specifically for university and sketching.
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.
