My first semester of college is officially over! Winter break started Thursday afternoon, once I got out of my last final. Since then, I've seen many of my friends and celebrated surviving our first semester of college a bit. Not sure what I'm gonna do for the next two weeks, besides seeing more people and working.
College is different. Nothing any older student had or could have told me would have been enough preparation for college. It's absolutely nothing like high school, which is both a good and bad thing. This fall, however, juggling a job and full-time college was not easy, especially on top of community service and a few other things. I learned a lot this semester—outside of an academic context—and hopefully the knowledge will help me be successful in the spring.
Happy holidays (to whoever reads this)! I still have no clue what I'm doing on New Year's, but I definitely want to have fun, and so do my friends.
P.S. National Treasure: Book of Secrets was a waste of $9.
