This week made me realize how lucky the students were that live on Newark campus or near the campus itself. I just had to make sure that I was prepared for the drive. I gave myself plenty of time, leaving about 45 minutes earlier than usual. I also made sure that I had a full tank of gas, since the weather was so bad. Never knowing what could happen. Though I made it to school on time and had no complications! Thanks to the car my parents gave me… commuting is a lot easier. I have a nice Tahoe with four-wheel drive. It makes me feel really safe while driving in the snow.
I realize that winter basically just started, but I am thinking spring! I want spring to come soon so I won’t have to go through all the trouble with commuting in the snowy and icy conditions. But I do believe with having all of the snow, it will make me appreciate the good and bright sunny weather in the spring! So even though it is hard right now commuting back and forth from school, I will just keep being prepared and not let the snow get me down! Thinking spring is the way to go!!!

My classes don’t seem as hard as last quarter which is good, because after this there just going to continue to get more difficult. I still haven’t figured out how to balance going out with my friends and studying yet. I don’t think I ever will!! But hopefully soon I do. I hate studying and I’ve never liked to do it. Now that I don’t have my parents there to tell me what to do it. I seem to make the wrong choices every once in a while. But hey they say you learn from your mistakes and I think I learn a little bit every time I make the wrong decision.
These are going to be some of the best years of my life, and I’m going to figure out a way to make them the best. Not only by going out and having fun with my friends but by studying and working hard at the things that I want most in life, and making my dreams come true.
I’ve had a very busy week so this is all I’m going to write for now.. See you next week!

It’s not so bad having to make my own choices I learn a lot about myself, and I have really grown up a lot since I’ve started college. In high school I would of chose going out with my friends without even thinking about if I had homework, or needed to study. Last quarter I struggled a little just trying to get use to everything and adjusting to the college life. I think I have a handle on things now, and I like I’m going to make it through, even though there were times when I thought I was never going to be able to do that.
I’ve met some new friends at Newark, which also makes my life a little easier. I’m from Grove City which is about an hour away so I don’t know anyone. I also commute which makes it harder to meet new people because I’m only at school for classes then I go home. Making new friends have helped me get to know Newark a lot more and have taught me some things about college that I should know, this makes my life a lot easier.
This is all I have to say about my life as a college student and my struggles that I encounter every day. So ill will let you know a little more next week!

I'm writing this blog to tell you about my experience as a college student. I started attending the Ohio State university in the fall of 2008.where I planed on majoring in nursing. I just graduated from high school and was very scared and not so sure about the whole college thing but excited at the same time.i knew that I wasn’t ready to go to a big college so I decided to go to the Newark branch which was a lot smaller and I knew I could get the help I needed easier. As I started college I couldn’t be more excited. It was something new so of course I couldn’t wait. My first week went well even though I was very stressed and was ready to quit.
I'm not a quitter and I knew I wasn’t going to give up. Throughout high school I loved hanging out with my friends and going out and having a good time. I never really took school so seriously when I was in high school but, once I came to OSU I decided that I couldn’t just do what I had to to get by I knew that I had to buckle down and get my priorities straight.
My first quarter wasn’t what I expected at all it wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be but, I knew that I still had to study and make sure I met the deadlines that were giving to me. College takes up a lot of my time. I know that I can reach my goal by being a student at OSU if I take everything one step at a time.
