So...not gonna lie, sometimes college is hard, and even the best of students can procrastinate too long. In the movies, they show the parties and the fun, but somehow the scenes where you stay up all night studying and writing a paper don't make the cut haha.
This semester has been more difficult than any other for me. There is a lot more pressure than there was before. While I do like the things I am doing, I don't feel that I am fully enjoying my senior year as I had hoped. It has been more stress than smiles, more early mornings than restful nights. Graduation is quite near and it looks like more of the same for my last semester
However, that is what makes this upcoming Thanksgiving and Winter Breaks all the more exciting to think about. This week alone (M,T, W), I had 2 exams and 3 papers due. Needless, to say I need to catch up on some sleep. It is exciting that I get to see my family and old friends on Thanks giving. My best friend is coming up from Florida, and another friend is coming back from Texas. I will only have a very small window of time to see them because....fellow ambassador Thomas Toley, our other 2 friends and I are travelling to New Orleans on Friday morning for the Annual Bayou Classic- which is a big deal. There is a big rivalry between Southern University and Grambling University and this weekend is when they square off on the football field. Also, on Friday night, there is a Battle of the Bands and a Greek stepshow, which is going to be super exciting. Bands and Greek life in the south are much different from here. We are going with our friend, Mosun, who particpated in the National Student Exchange and went to Louisiana State University last year. She was able to go there and experience a different side of life for about the same cost as she would pay here. She loved it and is so excited to be going back to visit all of here friends. I think it's very cool that the U allows you to visit other schools in different parts of the country, and even the world with the Learning Abroad Center.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all and until next time, Be EZ!
(pics of the trip will be posted next week!
