Introducing Susanna

Hey guys!

So, if you’ve been on this blog before, you know that you have no idea who I am. So, I guess I’ll introduce myself. My name is Susanna, and I am currently in NTID’s interpreting program here at RIT. When it comes to talking about myself, I feel so awkward and egocentric. However, I think I can do it for you guys. My life pretty much centers around school and work, both of which I adore. This semester is coming to a close, and it’s all happening so fast. Understand, this was my first semester at RIT and it went better than I thought it would. I didn’t feel so clumsy like I did when I first started college. I feel very comfortable and at home here. Having the semester end is almost a bad thing, ALMOST. When this semester ends, I’ll finally have the chance to breathe and not worry that I’m missing something for my next class. While RIT is large and scary, it somehow manages to feel like a second home. However, not the “I’m always here I might as well live here” second home, but the “I couldn’t imagine my life without RIT” second home.

Now, about work. I love my job so much! It’s so much fun to see prospective students come to open houses or personalized visits. Coming here can be a bit intimidating and I try my best to make it as welcoming as possible. Everyone that comes has a good time and they get everything they need, and that’s what makes me happiest.

I should probably be studying for a test that I probably have. Which test you may ask? Honestly, I’m not even completely sure, but when I can weed out which test I have next from the mess that is my planner, I’ll get to it. I hope your year is going great just like mine!
