After five very long years I am officially done with my undergraduate degree. It doesn't feel real yet, and it probably won't kick in until I have walked across the stage and I am holding my diploma with my own two hands.
I never thought that I would see the end when I started college, and as I would pray that the semester would fly by and I could complete another year of college. Back then I would say how I wanted time to pass and things that like, and you always here people say "don't wish your time away" and it is true. Now that I am moving on to a different chapter in life it literally seems like a dream that I was sitting in freshman seminar waiting for the weekend so that I could go have fun with my friends. I don't think you realize how much time changes people. I have different priorities now and a new outlook on life.
College has taught me that I can do anything I want to if I put my mind too it.
College gave me the three most amazing best friends that I have ever had, I know that those three friendships will last a lifetime.
College gave me a chance to be someone who helps others.
College made me appreciate how important family is. And I must say that I never would have made it through without the support and sometimes tough love of my family.
College let me continue to participate in the sport I love for four years and make history as being Indiana University Easts first four year track athlete.
I could go on and on about how college has changed my life, but what I need to say most is I owe Indiana University East a huge thank you. This place was like a home and the people are like family. I have had the privilege of getting to know, meet and work with amazing people. I also have never set foot on a campus that was so willing to go the extra mile for any student who needed a hand. It is astonishing to see how much Indiana University has grown even since I was admitted and we were still the pioneers.
It has been an honor to be given the opportunity to write blogs for the university and work for the amazing Admissions staff. They deserve a special thank you for putting up with me and my crazy schedules all these years. The admissions staff really go above and beyond.
So in closing, I am sad to say that this will be the last blog that I write for Indiana University East and I am excited more than ever for the next chapter in my life. I wish every single one of you the best and want to end by saying......
Today marks the start of the last week of classes!
If you are a senior like me you probably have found it harder and harder each week to continue to pay attention, especially if the sun is shining outside. That being said we need to stay focused and finish up this year with a bang! (I know it's hard lol)
I often find myself day dreaming of walking across the stage, accepting my diploma and going to celebrate later that night! Needless to say I absolutely can't wait, the feeling is almost surreal.
^^That brings me to this quote. As my fellow seniors and I get ready to take on the real world I believe we should take this in. With an education we have the opportunity to change the world, even in the smallest way. I think if you believe in something you should go after it whole heartily. And who knows, an IUE grad could be the next person to discover a cure or make a research discovery!
And I will leave you all with this. With a new beginning, starts a new life.
Have an amazing week!
Study hard for finals and finish strong!
When I saw the news this week and that they were calling for 4-8 inches of snow I wanted to cry . I am so beyond ready for spring, this snow has got to go!!!!!!!!! Not to mention we are one week away from spring break...spring break is suppose to be sunny and warm. Anyways, on to other things that are more important than me complaining about the snow.
I think this may be some of the realest advice I have ever read. I am trying to practice this on a daily basis.
We have 62 more days until graduation...how crazy is that????? I mean when we were back in the 100's it didn't really feel like graduation was ever going to get here but now that it is so close I am starting to get more and more excited....while also becoming more and more of a senior, which means senioritis. Senioritis is a real thing and it can drown you. At this point after spring break we will have five weeks left, and those five weeks are going to fly by. We gotta dot our I's and cross our T's, because we are way to close to the end to mess it up!
To add to the excitement I just completed my application for license in Indiana and that feeling was surreal. My capstone is also winding down, I only have two more rotations to go. Each capstone rotation I have learned something new and the experience has really made me feel like I am going to be a nurse.
Kind of a bunch of scattered thoughts Lol? I apologize.
Have a good week peeps
So what, I missed my first serve. Point is theirs and the game goes on. I still have plenty of time to finish the game strong and make a difference in the game.
How was your last semester? Did you finish out great! Did you get the grades you working towards? Or did something come up; did life hit you hard? Regardless of how semester went, you got a chance to start over and try again! Use this new year as a starting over point. Make good choices, complete your assignments, stay on top, stay ahead, and most importantly, give 100% EFFORT.
No one can promise perfection. However, we can promise perfect effort!!
How was your break? Mine was crazy! So much snow, so much food, and so much family. I needed the break to get caught up in my social life as well as plan for my future. I hope you used your time wisely!
Because now it is back to the grind.
I’m a senior; therefore, it’s all about how I finish up this semester.
Wish me luck!
Yes, we are back again. Back with the Pack. Back to school. Back to class. And back to homework. But it’s not all bad. Being back in school this year is pretty exciting. Why? Because I am a SENIOR BABY! It’s a little bitter-sweet, but I am enjoying every minute of it. Ladies and Gentleman, DO NOT let college escape you. The past 4 years have flown by and now I’m the big dog on campus. Now I am thinking about
“the real world” aka life after college. Actually, let’s leave that talk for next semester.
How was everyone’s first week of classes? I have to admit, not taking any summer classes really made my summer a piece of cake. Not to mention, I felt out of practice having to look on OnCourse and get back into a school routine. I nearly missed some of my due dates for assignments!! I’m back on track now, though. So nobody worry. Make sure you get into a school routine, too! It will help you with your organization. And it will keep you sane!
VOLLEYBALL: You know I had to talk about volleyball! It will be my senior season this year, and I am hoping our best season yet! We’ve (I) got so much to prove this year. We are taking no one lightly and plan to remain undefeated all season. I don’t want to fall to anyone and my team is on board with me!! But, we couldn’t be anywhere without the people who champion our cause. THANKS TO YOU ALL!!2 Comments
