Planning My Life

Believe it or not scheduling is just right around the corner for next semester. My adviser sent me an email on what I should have prepared for our advising meeting and to say the least I feel like I am getting extremely old.

It’s weird to think that after this year I will be half done with my college career, and seeing questions that ask what do you plan on doing after college freak me out. In the past two weeks, I’ve been to meetings about internships and learning about the professional field of what I want to do in Public Relations. Needless to say I am a little freaked out but mostly excited, but as many of you know I am trying to perfect my college plan.

I never thought I would say this but I actually do not want to leave school. There is so much left that I want to learn and not enough time. If I have any advice for those of you still in high school pick a foreign language and stick with it, because not coming in with any credit toward a language is causing me so much stress at this point. Every one tells me it’s not a huge deal, but when I’m trying to study abroad in Spain and still am in Spanish 101 at this point, it’s kind of a big deal.

I will try not to rip my hair out at my adviser meeting, and at this point I’m just trying to stay positive even though it may not seem like it! Other than that I’m extremely excited about all the Strategic Communication classes that I get to take next semester! Wish me luck!

Here’s a video from Google Chrome, which I just had to do an analysis on their ad campaign. I think this one is so cute!

My First Semester

Being a freshman I cannot believe my first semester is already done. It’s so weird to think that just a short amount of time ago I was moving into my dorm on the first day to now preparing for finals.

College is a LOT more difficult than high school. I have never studied this much in life, but from studying so much I feel so accomplished with myself. I have no regrets in anything this past semester and I can see how I have improved already. I thought in high school I would definitely have a C in a class, but I can proudly say that is not the case. I’m sure my parents are thrilled I thought I would be getting C’s, but I was definitely afraid of college classes at first!

In my writing I can see how I have already improved. Looking at my first papers compared to now my grades have continued to increase and I continue to receive better comments from professors on every paper.

My first semester has not been all studying though, as many of you know by reading my blogs I had so much fun this past semester. I was able to attend three concerts during the school year, visit other colleges to see friends, see my sister get married, and so many other events. I have also met so many people and I am thankful for everyone in my life! I am so grateful to be able to attend a school of talented, intelligent, and awesome people.

I still have finals to get through, but second semester here I come.
