Well, turkey break is over and it’s time to go back to reality. Time to face our finals and start studying hardcore. That turkey break wasn’t enough for me mostly because I procrastinated the whole week. Just when I thought I had gotten better at avoiding procrastinating too. Even though I didn’t get any work done during the break, I did get to reunite with my family. Family that I have not seen in many years showed up on Thanksgiving Day. It was amazing to see how happy everyone was. I did not get a full week of vacation like I used to in high school, but I don’t really mind since the semester is almost over. I still cannot believe that in one week classes are done.
This will be my last blog for the semester, Hawks. It’s a sad day, USA. It’s pretty insane how fast time flies. I have noticed that as I grow older time starts to go by faster. I hate time. I wish I could savor each moment of my life longer. I feel as if the semester has just started and now it’s almost over. I can still remember being in fifth grade. That was one of the best years of my life because I got my first girlfriend. Well, if you count sharing fruit snacks and holding hands for two days. Sounds like kindergarten love. I don’t want to grow up anymore.
College is hard and it’s only going to get harder, which is why I have to strive for the best. Being a first generation college student is really hard, and unfortunately my family hardly shows support. They don’t know how big of a deal it is to be a college student. They showed support the first couple of days when I got accepted into college but other than that not much. I really do need encouragement to keep going. Family is what keeps us fueled. Other than that my semester at UHCL has been outstanding. All the new people I met and all the wonderful activities I enjoyed were wonderful. Being a Hawk is the best thing I could have done right in life. I will never forget all the experiences I am experiencing at UHCL. They are some of the best in my life. I’m kept busy all the time and that’s a good thing. It keeps me from watching TV shows on Netflix. Finals are around the corner and I should stop distracting myself from studying.
Well, that’s it for this week, Hawks. Hope you all are studying because finals are coming up and they really know how to throw a punch. So get your gloves ready to challenge finals. Study, study, study! And don’t forget to catch up on sleep!
