Wow, where in the world did October go? There were point where it felt like it was going so slow, and here we are already into November. Halloween was fun, it was a bit chilly, but over all, it was a great time! The week before Halloween I watched some scary movies, to get into the spirit (pun intended) but didnt actually pick out a costume until Halloween (oops). Though, I didnt go trick or treating, but I did manage to get some candy from my brother (dont worry, I asked first).
Something that I want to share is that I withdrew from my math class, which was a challenge. In a previous blog, I wrote a bit about how my math class was just ok and I was thinking I could do it if I kept trying. But I ended up meeting with an academic advisor and talking about getting out of that class and what my options were. He said I didn’t need it, and that I could take a different math class next semester and I would be totally fine! So I got out of that math class! Yay!! A part of me really wanted to keep at it and try harder to understand the material, but I was just not getting it! The concepts were to abstract and I just wanted to do formulas.
The end of the semester is coming up and I am getting really excited. Not only am I excited to say that I got through my first semester of college (yay!!) but I am excited for whats next. I have had my eye on a psychology class called ‘abnormal psychology’ since I registered for fall classes and really want to take it next semester. I am planning on registering for classes some time this week, and hopefully I get it!
A bit of a side note: I get excited about tests and exams which has never happened to me before. I get excited to take them and be done with them. This might be because I am more confident in my test taking abilities or it might be because I want to be done with a unit. Whatever the case may be, I just wanted to share my new weird excitement for tests.
Though I will admit, I have had a bit of a rough patch the last month. I just didnt feel as motivated or excited about things. I could feel my time slip away from me as due dates came and went. But I am working on getting better. I am setting (manageable) goals for myself and have tried walking outside more. I am getting there and I hope my optimism will carry me through this dark and lonely winter!
One more fun thing before I end this blog, is I am getting very excited about thanksgiving and my winter break. Thanksgiving means good food, but it also means my friends are coming back for a few days! And boy have I missed them! My winter break, though it is a month away, will be very exciting because my family and I are going to Arizona for my Grandmas birthday! Im not sure the details on the trip yet, but I will be very excited to share what Arizona was like. I will be sure to take some pictures and put them on my December or January blog.
Thats all for now! I will talk to you more on December 1st! Unless something really exciting happens before then.
Talk to you soon!
