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.

What am I Doing for Spring Break?

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

But what spring break do you speak of? The one that almost all other CSS students are participating in and doing cool things during? Oh that one. Yeah, I’ll be student teaching. So when you are student teaching, you follow your elementary school’s schedule, not your college’s. I’m definitely bummed because for the past 2 years I’ve spent my spring break on the PIFT, doing community service across the country with a bunch of people. Going on the PIFT had become annual way of pausing and enjoying life and reflecting. It’s definitely a mindful week. It feels weird not being with all my friends. Last year, we all added each other on Snap Chat, so I have been watching everyone’s stories as they road tripped to Boulder, Colorado. It’s definitely a senior-moment, because it’s one of the first things I won’t be doing anymore as I graduate. I won’t be a “college kid” anymore. Putting a disclaimer out there though; my elementary schools actually has two, 1-week breaks, so I can’t be completely sad. I have one extra week off than my friends and I’ll get to take advantage of it to job hunt!

First Week Over

Thursday, January 19th, 2017


Celebrated the last first week as an undergrad with some Olive Garden! This semester I am taking just 15 credits, the lowest I have had so far. Although I have less classes than usual, they will still be challenging. Photography is a skill I have no background in. It will be a challenge to keep up with other students as some of them clearly have taken previous photography courses and are very familiar with their cameras. British Literature two will be challenging as it will be reading and writing heavy and I’ve heard the professor is a fairly tough grader. I am confident in myself, however, as I did fairly well in British Literature one and the professor teaching the class seems genuinely enthusiastic about the subject matter. Pre-Raphaelites will be challenging, too, as I have little background in the subjects we will cover. Bella Voce is always a great time but even that will pose some challenges as I learn new music, perform often, and complete new assignments that weren’t required in the past. It was good to get together with some friends and celebrate our accomplishments thus far and prepare for our graduation. Class of 2017! 

Spring Classes

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Now that the semester has come to a close I am already thinking about Spring Classes! Next semester I am signed up for Digital Photography, British Literature II, Bella Voce, The Pre-Raphaelites, and the London Theater & Culture Study Abroad Trip. I am most excited for the London trip but I am pretty jazzed about my other classes as well. Pre-Raphaelites is the last class I need to complete the Honors Program and British Literature II is my last required class for my English major. Digital Photography I am taking just for me! I love scrapbooking and blogging about my Theme Parties (https://themepartycentral.wordpress.com/) so this photography class will be great. I also plan to use the skills I gain for my London trip. Then I will have tons of amazing photos to share with my friends and family when I return. As always, I love being a part of Bella Voce. This year, my favorite concert, Still I Rise, will be held at St. Scholastica which will be an amazing way to finish off my senior year.
