Kissing Good-bye to Sleeping in, Saying Hello to a New Semester

Hi everyone!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted something on here! I’m fresh off a nice long five-week winter break, where sleeping in and gorging on mama’s home-cooking was a staple in my daily routine. As a college student, we are deprived of sleep and home-cooked food at times, and I was taking advantage of the opportunity to unwind back at home! I had a great break, caught up with my family, some friends, and old baseball teammates…but five weeks? It was too long for me. Back when we had the quarter system, our longest breaks were around three weeks and it was just right because we had just enough to relax, but not get bored of hanging around.

So, I shipped back out here to start my new semester! My first co-op is in the rearview mirror, and I’m extremely excited to be taking classes again. I’m taking it easy on the academic load right now, two classes for my major, and two for my minor. I usually take a light academic load when I’m playing sports. Baseball season is in full bloom spring semester, and I learned my lesson the hard way when I took on 17 credits on top of playing baseball everyday my freshman year. So, I’m looking forward to having a great time in and out of the classroom this semester!

As for the course content, we haven’t really gotten to anything yet. I think it’s because of the class times, we used to have two-hour classes but now we only have class for 50 minutes. That doesn’t give our professors a lot of time to mold our brains through lectures, so they’re taking an alternative route….homework! Don’t get me wrong, homework is very helpful in our learning process, but remembering that you have to do an assignment around midnight before it’s due….no bueno! 🙂

I’m gonna hop off the laptop and head to the hot tub to end my weekend on a great note!

Onward and upward!
