The first day of classes is over and I feel DRAINED. Right now I just want to eat and sleep. I need to shower, and I will, but I don’t necessarily feel like it.
Classes started at 9:00 a.m. and I’m just getting home at 9:00 p.m. I’m not complaining, I definitely enjoy school, but I am definitely tired.
It’s been confirmed that I don’t necessarily like technical courses. I’d much rather have a professor lecture and inform me. The key thing though is that I prefer them to stay on task, don’t bounce all over the place, and I need them to teach on things that I’m interested in.
The good thing now is that I’m a senior so all of my courses tend to interest me. There are no more silly electives, right now it’s all meat and potatoes. I’m getting the core of what I really need- communication and public administration courses. My major is communications with a radio-tv emphasis and I’m minoring in public administration.
Don’t ask me what I plan to do. Shoot, who knows that tomorrow will hold? I just know that I love communicating and I love learning how the government functions. Maybe I will be a journalist that covers governmental activities? Or, maybe I will be a public official with excellent communication skills? Honestly, I think I’d be happy either way.
I don’t know and I’m quite alright with that. Maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised? 🙂
As I was saying, though, I care less about technical stuff. I’m not even looking forward to operating the camera. Ok, ok I don’t even care to have to hold it. I’d much rather sit and learn about communication theories or discuss social issues affecting the communications world. I’d even prefer to write a paper than have to shoot video footage!
Let’s see if my attitude changes as the semester progresses. I have a nice balance of technical courses, communication courses, and public administration courses. I guess variety is a good thing.
It’ll definitely all work out and I must say that I am extremely thankful to God for allowing me to make it this far. I’m also thankful to live in a country that supports and encourages education. I’m also thankful for a wonderful, personable school that really cares. I’m just one thankful girl.
I’m thankful and I’m looking forward to having a wonderful semester. I’m a senior in college now. Thank you God.
