Okay, school is back and it is in full effect. I remember last year on the first day of school and how prepared I was. This year it seems to have crept up on me. I was ready with my books and syllabi, but the first day of class still came out of nowhere. The first week was a little hectic for me, to say the least. I was actually looking forward to the first day of class and was very excited. As each new term starts, I am one term closer to obtaining my degree. I am taking two classes: one online and one on-ground.
After the second week I was back in my groove. Everything is going smoothly and as well as can be expected at this point. I am pleased with the fact that my classes complement one another. What I mean by that is that the topics covered in the two courses actually relate. I really enjoy when this happens because it broadens my insight into the subject. This helps when studying and with discussion. I cannot believe that the first fall term is almost over.
In two weeks the second fall term starts, and we will all embark on the next step in our journey. The first week back was rough, but it did not discourage me. It encouraged me to get it together and remember all of those study habits I developed and worked on last year. It was like turning the heat on for the first time on a cold night. It takes a minute to warm up, but once it heats up, you can put it on automatic.
I am excited about the upcoming term. I have been pondering changing my major again, but I am not totally sure about it yet. I do not want to change and change and change. Well, at least for right now, all I have to think about are the two classes I have going on and finishing them strong.
One thing I have decided is that I will not take the summer off again. I plan on going until I have reached my goal. I am glad to see some of my old classmates from last year and the new classmates as well. It is good to be back in class, and I would like to tell all of my fellow Billikens “Welcome Back!”
