I hope your week is going great, because mine seems to never stop! Thankfully, next week will be super chill in comparison.
I forgot how hectic things got around midterms. I’m only taking three lecture classes, but somehow I’ve already had four exams. They just keep on coming. I’ve been surprised at myself by how fast I’ve been able to switch gears from Human Physiology to Genetics to Organic Chemistry… It’s like I drown myself in all things organic chemistry for 24 consecutive hours and then move on to do the same for the next subject. That’s probably not how college was meant to work.
As far as extracurriculars, things have gone okay. I became the Co-Chair of the Membership Committee for Campus Activites Board, so that’s exciting. Our first orientation will hopefully be this upcoming week. Plus, CAB has been really cool about letting me develop my photoshop skills by letting me do some of their flyers. I’m sure they appreciate it too, but I’m mostly glad I can take some time off schoolwork to do something I really enjoy.
Speaking of taking time off, y’all know I love Study Paws! I was able to go and relax for about an hour right after a really big test. It was the perfect de-stressor. I’m already looking forward to the next time they’re on campus, even though that means I’ll be rushing to cram information into my brain before exams.
Being a part of Hawk Leadership Institute this year has also been super exciting. I got to do my first one-on-ones with my mentees this week! It was really different, but fun, being on the other side of a one-on-one. I’m also blessed with two amazing mentees, so that definitely helps. Speaking of leadership, I was accepted as a facilitator for the Leadership Retreat coming up later this month! I’m really excited because this retreat meant a lot to me last year, when I went as a participant. Plus, a lot of my friends, Flor, Izuh and Diveanne, are going to be there too!
I’m really excited for all these new things to come to life!
Until next time Hawks!
