I made it through my First Semester!
Happy Sunday to you all!
Tis the Season…for Winter Break! That magical period with no school, no homework, just relaxation, and recharging. I for one am counting down the days until my family, and I go on a cruise to the Caribbean! I haven’t been on a cruise since my trip to Alaska 5 years ago!
Finishing my first semester of college is a pretty big deal. Some weeks were better than others, but I made it to the other side.
Looking back this first semester, there were a lot of things I wished I’d done differently. For example, I wish I ate a bit healthier (damn you freshman 15), and got a bit more sleep. I wish I had joined more clubs and studied a bit harder for some of my classes.
While I could spend a lot more time going over things I regret, but its all done and I’d rather look at the positives. I passed all of my classes, I found a group of friends that make me happy, and I didn’t go completely insane during finals.
I had a lot of firsts as well. First Time:
- Living with no adults
- Going out to a party
- Cheering on MY team at a football game
- Studying for 3 hours straight
- Going to Homecoming
- Really managing my money
- Stealing a brick (#elonuniversity)
It has been incredible and I am so excited for what the rest of the year will bring.
