Sorry I haven’t posted in awhile, life has been very busy!
Today I had my Philosophy exam, the first of my three exams. I used all three hours. I’ve never took a test that long in my LIFE. But after closing my FULL bluebook, I was overcome with a sense of accomplishment. Not only did I write over 12 pages on a philosophy test, I feel like I learned even more than that. I’m not quite sure how philosophy will fit into my career path, but I’m sure I will retain at least part of what I learned from my professor for the rest of my life. Here’s to a liberal arts education!
Other exciting news- HANSELMAN WON THE DECORATING COMPETITION between residence halls, after hours and hours of making snowflakes and making the common room into an ice castle! (Plus about 30 of us “frozen” in coats and hats for an interactive component) Also, my snowboard was shipped here over Thanksgiving break so now I can go to Wachusett any time I want!
The semester is winding down. I’m looking forward to being finished with exams and going home, but I think I will miss this place and the people I’ve met here so far. I’m really glad that I chose to get involved with S.P.U.D, House Council, and participating in things like the ESCAPE retreat. They’ve really helped me to meet a lot of people. I think that I’m going to apply to be an Orientation Leader to help other college freshmen feel as home here as I do.
Back to studying…
