It’s finally here! Finals are here, and they’re ready to eat me! I’m usually the one that eats things. I have been studying like crazy for them. They are consuming my whole weekend. Not a fun experience, but I’m sure many of you Hawks are dealing with the same situation.
My eye bags are worse than they ever have been. Hey, at least after all the studying and cramming we will be on break with one whole month of freedom. I know that during the break I am going to miss school. All the memories that I have gathered this semester are priceless. Never did I expect to even meet any new friends. I know that this sounds cheesy, but I love my school and the all the wonderful Hawks that come with it! From the Hunter Hawk Games to orientation and many more, these are the memories that I will retain when I’m old. I can’t help but to smile when I think about the memories.
Aside from all the memories, I will have some bad ones. You can’t have good ones without some bad ones thrown in there. I will have to say my worst experience this semester was adjusting to my new habitat. As they say in science, it takes a while before one can adapt to a new environment. I felt like a frog in pool of lava. They do not really go well together. I know that next semester I will have even more fun, and I can’t wait for it. Scratch that, I can wait a whole month before I start school again.
Papers and math are my main concern this semester. I hate math with a passion. Studying for it is a struggle because I forgot about half the material I learned. I have to reteach myself the weekend before the exam. Not a very fun experience. Although I know I’m going to do fine on the exam, I really want an A. After my exams, I’m going to have a party and eat my happiness out. I know that this winter break I will also be helping new students adjust to UHCL, and I can’t wait to be part of that experience. I want to see how they react to all the greatness we have as Hawks. I can relate to how they will be feeling as I was in their shoes not too long ago. My goal is to make them feel at home because UHCL is home. I’m glad I got to share my freshman experience this semester with all you guys. I hope it was enjoyable. Until next semester! Good luck with finals!
