Christmas break ended and BAM. Hello last half of junior year!
The last few days have been an adjustment after a month long break. All of a sudden more seems to be expected of me in my classes than ever before. Assignments were given before the first day of class. Papers are due a week from the first day of class. Teams were assigned. Quizzes taken. Participation expected. Books to be read.
Whew. And we’re only three days in.
Looking at my class schedule, I expected this semester to be hard. And it certainly will be. There’s not much wiggle room for messing around or procrastinating. My classes demand the best of my effort. And I cannot fathom how all the reading and group work is going to happen. But happen it will. So I better get my game face on.
My Great Catholic Thinkers class on Fulton Sheen is my favorite right now. He is such a BOSS. And did you know his real name wasn’t Fulton? Mind blown! It was actually Peter. Though there’s a lot of reading for that class, I am immensely enjoying it as we plow through his autobiography before getting into 6 other books.
Our discussion in Ethics was interesting, and I’m sure will bring up many fascinating topics. Business classes haven’t introduced anything new yet, but involve some psychology this semester which I enjoy! And then there’s Hip Hop. Why I am taking that class, I am still not sure. I feel like a dork in there, and it pushes me beyond my comfort zone, but that’s a good thing. Oh and we have to perform in a showcase in May. It’s been a long time since my feet have seen the stage, and I’m not sure how I feel about that yet.
We’re taking 300+ students to the March for Life in D.C. this week! It will be my third time going, and being a “bus captain” will be fun. Life has been going non-stop since getting back to campus, but the sun is out (seriously over 50 degree today – WHAT?!) and it’s been so nice to see people again. I’m realizing what a short time is left before graduating, so I plan to make the most of my last three semesters.
So many opportunities. So much to do. But I’m loving it.
I’ve been here long enough to know my way around and know what I’m doing. I know what classes require of me. I know what I am capable of. And I know that I’m up for a challenge.
Bring it, last semester of junior year!
