The past semester was certainly not the norm for me. I’m used to having a lot of free time on my hands and this semester I juggled 16 hours plus an internship. I had zero free time and for the most part, it wasn’t too bad. I definitely learned a lot about time management and prioritizing my workload.
This semester started off kind of crappy with a lot of personal drama but it ended up being one of my favorite semesters ever. I got to really concentrate on myself and I had the best time. I made so many new friends and I really cherished my weekends since I got no sleep during the week.
I also stayed really busy. I was constantly doing a work function and twice this semester, I had three tests in one day followed by a major work event. I learned a lot at my internship about becoming more detail-oriented and how to be a better writer. I also learned a lot about what I want out of a first job when I leave this place.
This semester has been wonderful and I’ve enjoyed getting to hang out with my best friends for a few more months before we all go off into the real world. It’s hard to believe I’m graduating. I feel like just yesterday my parents were helping me move into Eagle Village. It seems so surreal that a week from tomorrow, I’ll be wearing a cap and gown. I’ve loved my time here at Georgia Southern but I’m excited, anxious, and nervous about the next chapter. I hope it’s as much fun as this one has been!
