Autumn was an absolute ride, y’all.

September – November have been both the most fun and most stressful months of my life. Starting college has allowed me to figure out a little better what I want to do with my life, how to do life independently, and what is worth my time. From visits home to days out with friends to nights shutting down the library, here are a few words to describe my first semester.

Fun

The independence of college = 2 a.m. taco runs and friends around 24/7. I’m so not used to living a 3 minute walk away from all my friends and hanging out way too late talking, eating too much, or studying when we actually get the discipline to focus. The spontaneity and freedom of college has been a lotta fun, all while having home less than an hour away. I’ve even been enjoying classes (or at least some of them lol).

Challenging

With more studying, more homework, and more responsibility than ever, I can’t deny that the first semester was a challenging one. While it was definitely overwhelming at times, I’ve learned a lot about time management and prioritization. My organization skills have grown and procrastination has lessened, so I’m gonna say this semester has been a win no matter what my grades come to (but it’s looking pretty good rn, nbd :P).

Enlightening

Finally, studying public relations and journalism has helped me see exactly what it is I’d be doing in each career path, and has solidified my thoughts on each. While I originally anticipated focusing primarily on journalism, my decision to change my major to public relations is now proven to be the right one for me. I’ll always love writing, but I realize I want to gear my focus on more relational skills offered in PR. I’ve even been able to use this blog to explore the PR industry in one of my classes.  Plus, dabbling in social media and taking an event planning position on campus has made me excited to turn these interests into a career.

May the next semester be as fulfilling as the last. ❈

    Great pix! Looks like you had a very cool fall. I’m a college freshman, too, but I go part time and I’m almost 40 so my first semester at school has been a *little* different than yours… 😉 But I had a fun semester, too. Thanks for sharing this. 🙂
