1 week down – x amount to go.


The first week of school came and has flown by quickly and I really can’t complain, besides walking from the dome all the way to the back of campus where my department is, but I digress. I’ve scheduled 19 hours, and I was able to attend all of my classes last week without being totally wiped out. Unfortunately, I’ll have to drop a class because it conflicts with another, but I was up for the challenge to take the maximum amount of hours. A few weeks from now, I know that this is going to be the best decision to make. Hindsight is always 20/20.

I want this semester to be fun. I’ve noticed some much needed changes around the university that I am definitely impressed with, especially in my department. As I’m nearing the end of my undergraduate career, I want to make sure that I’ve had a fulfilling experience overall. I plan to be more active within my department as well as the university. I’ve reactivated my membership with ACM, which is an organization within our Computer Science department, and I’m planning on attending a few of the volleyball and football games this year. I guess I can blame my need to be more involved on all the extra time I have.

As far as my plans for this semester, I want to manage my time even better and of course, make the Dean’s List as I have with the previous semesters. I’ve also been thinking about my post-graduate plans and whether or not I want to attend grad school at Southern University. Before, this worried me because of financial reasons; but now, I no longer have certain financial obligations that I have to deal with and my schedule has a lot more flexibility. Everything just seems to be falling into place and I’m extremely grateful for that.

    I’m glad that everything is falling into place for you, you deserve it! I think it’s amazing that you can manage school, work and being a mother. We need more women like you in our world!

    Just reading about your first week of school is making me really excited. I also want to say that I’m happy that everything is falling into place for you. It is a great feeling to know that something good is happening to a friend. I’m very happy for you :)

    I’m happy that things are falling into place for you. Yes you’re right, hindsight is 20/20. I remember a friend taking 20 plus credit hours and almost having to drop half of the classes. Can’t wait to hear more as time goes on in regards to your classes. Glad that the worry of graduate school is no longer there. I’m really happy for you! You’ve worked so hard.
