Semester’s End

Howdy, spring semester’s over, it’s summer time! I made it!  My first year of college in the books. I’m proud of myself. I remember there was a time last summer where I was profusely debating on whether or not I really wanted to go to school. It was tough. Now though, after finishing my first year, I’m happy with the choice I made.

This semester was the fastest fifteen weeks of my life. Midterms were a piece of cake and finals weren’t that big of an opponent, they were so insignificant that I passed them using my high school study skills. No studying. There’s a lot to say about this spring though. I met this pretty, super rad girl, I wrote more, I read more, I learned more, but most importantly I bettered myself. The results were easy to see, I passed this semester with A’s and B’s; one of my goals for the year. That part earlier about not studying is partially true, I took on new habits like going back over my notes at least once after I write them, I bought a journal to keep me organized for the week, and I also started writing daily summaries of what my day was and how I felt throughout. I changed up my routine because I want to see different results with the things I do. The $20 statement credit for good grades from Discover motivated me a little bit to do better in school. Twenty dollars is twenty dollars and these bills are not going to pay themselves. 

I don’t have any big plans for the summer yet other than taking Chemistry at my local community college; I want to get ahead and not have to do it in the fall since I heard that Chemistry at GCU is stupid and a pain to take. I have a list of books that I want to read and discern to improve my own writing, that’s one of the main things I want to focus on this summer, being a better writer and possibly writing some articles for another blog or site. There’s also a week or two that I want to take to go on a trip somewhere, I have a couple places in mind, but nothing’s certain right now. The homies and I also have a lot to catch up on so that’s on the list too. 

Before summer officially starts though, I get to see my little sister, the ice queen, graduate from high school. It’s an awesome achievement for her and my family and I can’t wait to see her walk on that stage and receive her diploma. She was there for my graduation so I’ll be there for hers too, I’ll be the first one to get down there and hug her when it’s all said and done. She makes me smile when I hear her tell me about the scholarships she’s gotten and the discussions she’s had with admissions counselors. I’m proud of her and I want to see her do well, she shines in places that I could never. 

Thank you guys for reading. If you’re taking finals soon good luck!! If you’ve already taken them I hope you did well and have a fantastic summer!! Love you guys, catch you in the next one.
