Ringing in a New Year and a New Semester

Happy New Year everyone! I’m about to enter my fourth (and final!) semester at USG and my schedule will be even more hectic than usual. I’ll be a full-time student and have a part-time job, an internship, and extracurricular activities to balance. Despite feeling slightly overwhelmed at just the thought of that, I’m also incredibly excited. Here are five things I’m looking forward to for Spring 2015.

1) Seeing all of my friends

There’s something about taking five 3 hour classes together every single week that really brings you closer with your classmates, especially after three semesters together. My classmates have become some of my closest friends and it’s been weird having a few weeks where I’m not seeing them almost every day. I’m counting down the days until classes to start and I get to see everyone again.

2) New school supplies

I know I’m in college, but I still love buying school supplies for the first day of school. Having supplies ready to go before the semester starts makes me feel prepared and on top of things. I especially like buying planners to help me stay on schedule and sticky notes so I can post reminders and to-do lists all over.

3) New Experiences

I’ve already started my spring internship, and I absolutely love it. I’m one week into working there and I have learned so many new things already. In my final semester of college I’m hoping to soak up as much knowledge and experience as possible. I still haven’t decided if I want to go to graduate school or look for a job after graduation, but no matter what, I know I want to be prepared.

4) Warm Weather

Even though its only January, I’m looking forward to spring. Winter may have some perks (like snow days) but to me it’s just way too cold. It was only 7 degrees out recently, but by the end of the semester it should be 70 degrees and sunny! USG has a outdoor tables that I love to study at when it’s nice out, so I can’t wait for that.

5) Graduation!!!

In five months, I’ll walk across the stage at College Park and become a college graduate. It will definitely be a bittersweet moment for me. I’ll be sad to leave USG, but I will be forever grateful to everyone who helped make my time at USG productive, worthwhile, and most importantly, enjoyable!
