In addition to the new year starting and making resolutions for the year ahead, college students all around have started new classes to advance their education in pursuit of their degrees.
Personally, I hit the jackpot this semester. My classes (for the most part) are in my understanding and I anticipate (for the most part) that they will be used in my life. It's exciting to see this semester shaping up to be the best one yet.
This is the ranking of my classes top to bottom (at least for now...it's only syllabus week)
This one is interesting mostly because I really like learning about the economy and how it works. In addition, there are a few people that are known to be supporting the #FeelTheBern movement and I have to hold myself back not to say, "Hey, this is important and there is no such thing as a free lunch." But I don't want to get too far into politics so here's a gif of a malamute puppy.
#4 News Writing for Media
This class is probably going to be fun, but for now, I'm a little unimpressed. So far, we took a tour of the library and learned how to google things... I am going to give it a real chance, but for now it is at #4 in the ranks.
#3 Religions of the World
Not too bad actually. The prof is really good and we have had a few enjoyable classes so far! Unfortunately, I don't need to take this class for my major, but it is required to graduate. On the other hand, I don't mind it because of the interesting discussions we have had so far. I am excited to get into the content of the class and learn a lot.
#2 PR Writing
I am always looking to improve my writing. "CLEAR and CONCISE," Professor Johnson says. I am hoping to gain not only the ability to write more professionally, but improve my word choice for this media and gain some new readers!
Last but not least,
#1 Art History
Since this class isn't a requirement for my major, you would think that I would hate it. On the contrary. I found myself ACTUALLY paying attention during the lecture because I genuinely like the subject. I couldn't help but notice recently that as a PR major, I stick out like a sore thumb in this class. I don't mind at all. I enjoy this subject and am very pumped to be taking it.
I am planning on succeeding this semester by being like Leslie Knope and inspiring myself every day.
Until next time,
