Registration Stress

Thursday, October 19th, 2017

I remember in high school when I would look through a sheet of paper with a short list of classes that were offered for the 2 electives I had space for in my already-determined academic schedule, and I would always get excited to choose which electives I wanted to take. Then, all I had to do was make a check mark next to the classes and turn in the piece of paper to my teacher, and a few days later–bam–there was my schedule for the next semester.

Test day!!!

Friday, February 10th, 2017

Today is my first physics test. I am kind of freaking out to be honest, but it is only the first test so I have plenty of time to make up points if it goes not the best. But the bright side of it is that this weekend I won’t have anything physics related to be worried about!

Stress Relief!

Saturday, January 21st, 2017

The first semester of college is a big one. There are a lot of new experiences and things going on which can bring on a lot of stress. Thankfully I learned some wonderful tips and tricks for stress relief last semester that I have carried over to this semester! First: coloring/drawing. I am not a very artistic person, but I LOVE to color. Coloring has been proven to help with stress relief and calming anxiety! The best part about this trick is that it’s easily found (in stores and then easy to put away), pretty cheap, and it stimulates your imagination! Second: jigsaw puzzles. I was never a puzzle doing person before last semester, and I found that I loved doing puzzles as something to relax (or just for fun). I downloaded  jigsaw puzzles on my phone and asked for them for Christmas! I now have a total of 12 puzzles and 6 of them are at school with me; my roommates and I can’t wait to start! Third: essential oils or aroma therapy. There are a lot of essential oils that can be put on the hands or feet that are used for stress relief, better sleep, concentration, relaxation, and much more. Aroma therapy also comes in many forms such as: lotions, soaps, shower gels, and air fresheners. Bath and Body Works has the BEST aroma therapy collection; a few deep breathes and I am relaxed and sleeping! The fourth and final tip: anything you are passionate about. Doing something that we love is a natural stress relief. Whether that be reading, writing, watching netflix, hanging out with friends, watching a movie, going for walks and so much more; whatever inspires you and that you are passionate about will naturally relax you and make you happy.

My First Second Semeser

Friday, January 20th, 2017

This is my second semester of college total; my first spring semester, and I am very excited! This semester I am taking Dignitas, French 2, Development Through the Lifespan Psychology, Chemistry 2, and Biology of the Cell. I lucked out this semester when it comes to my schedule. One 8am class but then the rest start at 10am or later!! I’ve never had a better night’s sleep then I do now, knowing that the classes that I was advised to take and chose, allow for MORE SLEEP! Sleep is so important (and let’s be honest, it’s great!) especially when you’re involved with other things going on! For example, I participate in InterVarsity Christian Fellowship on campus, along with the Yoga Sculpt fitness class! Working out my brain, my spirit, and my body requires a lot of energy, but I know that I will get it! I’m so thankful to my advisor for helping me make the decisions I needed to when it came to classes.

Hejdå

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Hejdå, means goodbye in Swedish, the language I am currently learning. My time has come to say hejdå to my blog, in this space at least, and to undergraduate college life. It has been an honor writing here and attending this college. I chose The College of St. Scholastica to become a nurse, but I ended up following a much different path, becoming a kayaking guide, a writer, a blogger, a photographer, a friend, a volunteer, and a happy hearted human. I would not have done anything differently. My decision to attend The College of St. Scholastica might have been the best of my life. There, I was given the opportunities needed to realize my true self and become the best version of me. Much of my personal growth and progress arrived while I studied here in the UK, but it was The College of St. Scholastica that enabled me to come here, to be here, and to study here. Tack så mycket, thank you so much, for everything. My love of learning will live on forever, and a part of my heart will always belong to The College of St. Scholastica.
