Better Late Then Never....sometimes
What's up everybody?! Sorry it took me so long to get blogging, but don't worry I'm ok and I'll make sure I'm top of it from here on out. I seem to have an issue with time. You'd think I'd get a hang of the whole time management thing by now, but I still have a little work to do with that ( I was up until 4 again last night). It really isn't that bad though. I need to keep myself busy all the time.
I should probably let you guys know who I am before I start going on about my lack of sleep. I was born and raised right here in the northside of Minneapolis. I went to Patrick Henry high school and I'm in my 3rd year here at the U. At first, the U of M wasn't my initial choice for a school, but I am really glad I decided to come here. In spite of the time issues, I have had a great experience here so far. I love it here.
I work in a mentoring office through CLA called Access to Success. I have a great time working with freshmen and prospective students so I take every opportunity I can to do so. After I get off here, I have to head to a meeting with one of my professors. She is goiong to help me with a paper that I am working on for her class. Usually I don't get too excited about homework, but this class is actually really interesting and I'm even looking forward to this paper. The course is American Race Relations 3211W. If you think that'd be interesting or want to take a cool class, I would definitely keep that in mind. I really like when you can find a course that genuinely interests you. It makes the work so much easier and that takes away from all of the stress of your other courses.
Even though I am looking forward to this paper, I can't say that I'm not stressing at this moment. Right after I leave my meeting with my professor, I'm on to my final midterm in my Journalism class. This is another class I really enjoy, but I can't say that I have ever really looked forward to an exam. The professor, Brian Southwell is really cool though. I would keep his name in mind for the future if I were you too. I'm feeling pretty good about the exam even though I didn't get to study as much as I would have liked to, but I think it'll go alright.
After this week is over I think I will finally be able to have a social life again and get back involved with my extracurricular activities and student organizations. For me it was my participation in these that really helped make my experience here at the U what it has become. I am a part of a student organization here at the U of M called Voices Merging. It is one of the many groups I work with. Voices Merging organizes and host a number of events throughout the year. We are especially known for our open mics that we have every other Monday. Our next open mic will be this Monday. I really excited too because it's our Halloween open mic. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. The open mics are always lot of fun and we usually have a great turn out. Anyone is welcom to come and watch, but they can also perform if they want. We have poets, dancers, singers, rappers, comedians and anything else you can think of.
Well, my shift is getting to close to ending and I think I should try and get back to studying for this midterm that coming up. I don't want to have these time issues anymore. Thankfully I have some friends that help me keep my life on track. Anyway, I hope everyone has a great weekend. Enjoy the weather we have now, because it seems like its only gonna get colder....I'm outty. stay warm. talk to you soon.
