The semester is practically over! I am very grateful to not be bogged down under a mountain of work; I really only have finals to worry about at this point. I literally just got back from Thanksgiving four days ago, and I only have three more days of classes until finals start. Then it’s back to New York for me. But first, finals. I don’t know whether to be worried about them or not. I only have four to begin with, and only one of them covers material from the whole semester. So I can enjoy the holiday season in Nashville!
A one-stop flight from Nashville to my home state of Wisconsin departs on Tuesday, December 12th. I cannot believe that there are only fifteen more days left of the semester! In the next few weeks, I expect myself to be remarkably absorbed in the overabundance of homework I still need to complete. With that said, I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving!
It’s about that time of year when everyone has a smile of their face, including myself. Just think about it for a second. First, you have Thanksgiving with family and all the food you can imagine. Then, the long break from the hustle and bustle of school. And last but not least there is Christmas, which is always a blast. Maybe this year it will snow down here in Nashville, because I am the snowball king. Yes sir! Yeah, there is a lot to worry about being a college student from homework and grades to living “on your own” and becoming an adult. But at the end of the day all you can do is just smile, life is just too short to worry all the time. Seize this great opportunity and make better for yourself. Oh, and by the way, hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you enjoy your family and all the food, because I know I will.
So, these past few weeks have been extremely tough and I’m not quite sure how I’m getting through them right now, but I’m trying hard. I have to say though, as the year winds down and the weather gets cooler and basketball is in season I’m looking forward to the men’s and women’s teams. Here’s a link for more about Belmont Athletics, BU Athletics.Hopefully, we can improve on last season. But this is going to have to be a short entry because I’m on my way to a regional flag-football competition at Western Kentucky University. But I hope everyone reading this stays safe.
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Ok, so I know that most of our posts lately have seemed really busy and I’m sure that I seem stressed. So I’ve decided to let you in on some of the type of work I’ve been up to inside the classroom. I’m in an accounting class that I hated at the beginning of the semester, but I’m getting the hang of it. One major component of that class is a project and in my class, it’s a monopoly project. I’m sure you’re wondering why a bunch of college students are playing monopoly in class, but I promise it has been really helpful and is actually, experiential learning is really refreshing.
The holidays are almost here! I am proud to admit that my roommate and I (ok, well mostly my roommate because she is awesome) have already decorated our room for Christmas!! Yeah, we are insane and are quite aware that Christmas is more than a month away, but coming inside out of the ever present Nashville rain is just so much better when you have a festive room to be in!
Since fall break, things have been going by so quickly. This will be my first weekend without a debate tournament in about three weeks, and as much as I love debating, some sleep will be much appreciated. That is so long as I get my research paper for my seminar class done during daylight hours. I can never seem to work during the day, perhaps from years of being in school until about 4 and not starting my homework until 8 at night.
An anonymous author once stated, “There are two ways to look at life. One is as though nothing is a miracle; the other is as though everything is.” On Tues., November 6, I attended the 40th annual Country Music Awards (CMAs). With a spark of luck, I was selected to work the CMAs with Belmont’s Service Corps organization.
Wow, these weeks are going by so FAST. What Happened? It feels like I go to sleep one night and it’s Sunday, and when I wake up it’s already college football time. The only days I seem to feel somewhat are Sunday, Monday, Friday, and Saturday. The other days seem to be non-existent. I’m serious, classes feel like about 10 minutes long and about 20 for my TuesdayThursday classes. I call it the “College Focus”, because every college student either is really stressed, has a lot of work to do, or just needs some GOOD sleep.
As I was pondering what to write about this week, it dawned on me that an element very necessary to any human being,s existence is none other than FOOD. I know when I was trapped in the college search process, it was something that I looked over even though it should’ve been important in choosing a school. Luckily for me, Belmont’s food service has been surprisingly good and the only problem I run into with it is that I eat too much rather than there not being enough to eat.
I shouldn’t have such a tough time writing about the fun times I’m experiencing here at Belmont, but I have to say, staying on top of everything with school and my social life is tougher than I thought. But I’m making it work. So in today’s news, I’m really excited for Thanksgiving Break. I know I could use a few days to recoup.
