Senior Year is finally here!
I’m in the final stretch of making my childhood dream come true. It hasn’t always been an easy journey, but with a full force drive of dedication anything is possible. When I entered college, I never pictured making it to senior year. It’s somewhat mindboggling, but being the first person to attend college in my family made it appear to be impossible. As the years went on, my experiences taught me that I can accomplish anything. I mean, hey, I finally passed chemistry.
This new coming year will be the best possible college year of my life and I am planning on setting up a couple of goals I would like to achieve prior to the end of my college career. My mission is to set up three challenging goals for to complete my time at UHCL.
My main goal for the upcoming year is to join as many clubs possible. I always imagined graduating with my robe all pimped out. I have to be looking fly for all my family members. I have slacked off a bit in this department of the last few semester and would love to pick up new hobbies to keep myself busy; getting cords from organizations would just be a plus.
Secondly, I would love to make a new friend each and every time I’m on campus at UHCL. MY first year at UHCL I was able to make friends even in bathrooms. I know I was a weird child. As the years went on, and classes got more difficult It was harder to accomplish this. This is a new year and tough homework assignments won’t stop me from improving my social skills.
My final goal is to find an internship in the field in which I am majoring in. I’m not sure how I’m going to achieve this, but I know that the Career and Services Office will offer guidance. My mind has been screaming, “What were you thinking Eric! You should have started looking for internships last semester!”
However, a side goal of mine is to overcome this fear, and face life right in the eye, and the truth is I am in the phase where I’m not sure how life after college is going to be. I’m scared of the future after school is over.
Well that’s all for this week Hawks! Tune in next week to read about my summer experiences and first week of school! Hope you all stayed dry during the hurricane. Have a great second week of classes!
