It’s almost march and I can’t believe it. This quarter has flown by and I feel like I don’t even know where it went. At least spring break is only a couple weeks away, but you know what that means. Finals are only a couple weeks away. Since finals are coming up that means I won’t be able to think about spring break for a while. So until then I guess I’ll study.

Its time to schedule classes also. I’m getting excited to schedule because that means its spring quarter and it’s almost summer, but I’m also starting to stress because I have no idea what classes I want to take. Stressing out can sometimes make the situation a lot harder but as I look at the classes that are offered and look at the ones that go good with my major it will be a lot easier to schedule and take a lot of the stress off.
Scheduling is only a week away so after that is all over with and finals are done with, then it will be time for spring break and the stress will be gone
Needless to say things are looking up and it looks like I’m going to end the year off right and bring the summer in on a good note.

This week I am going to be responding to one of my classmate’s blogs. The blog was about the top 3 things that make a relationship successful. The top three things that were mentioned were trust, forget the past, and sense of humor. I think that all of these things are very important in a relationship and that you need these to make a good relationship.

These were very good points to bring up. Trust is a very good thing to have it shows that both or you are committed to one another and care for each other. Forgetting the past is a big thing in a relationship. If you can’t forget the past then it’s going to be hard for you to have a relationship. By forgetting the past you are showing your partner that you are ready to move on and that you are ready to make a commitment with them.

Having a sense of humor shows that you are fun to be around and that you love having a good time. Its always good to have a sense of humor but then again you should know when it’s time to have fun and time to be serious. Everyone needs a partner with a sense of humor.

I think that this blog shows some very good points in a relationship and I agree with all of these points and I think that everyone should take these in consideration when they want to have a good relationship

I know that this blog is off topic but it had some very good points in it. Next week I’ll be back to talking about college life.

So it’s more than half way through the quarter, it has flown by in my opinion. I haven’t really found myself being stressed out about school lately. I’ve actually been having a lot of fun, which isn’t really hard for me to do. Don’t get me wrong school is always my first priority.
Even though school hasn’t been very stressful I feel like my life has. Since the New Year not one thing has went right. I’ve been having so many car troubles and many other things that seem to break my bank account; needless to say all I’ve been doing is working. I don’t mind working but when I know that it’s going to something that I have to pay then I don’t like it as much.
Of course everything happens for a reason so maybe this is year just isn’t my year, things will get better eventually, the past couple of days things have been starting to look up. But of course right when things get good something else will go wrong because that’s how it always works.
Being a college student I’ve realized that going to school and keeping good grades isn’t the only stressful thing. Life in general starts to become stressful. This is the real world and just like my parents have always told me since I was a little girl try and have as much fun as you can as a kid because when you grow up that’s when reality hits.

I think it’s safe to say that this is reality, this is the real world!

September 24, 2008, a day I’ll never forget.

I rolled over and hit snooze to my alarm clock blaring Britney Spears and fell back to sleep. Next thing I know my dad is standing over top of me with a confused look on his face “Brittney today is the big day, it’s your first day of college and you’re going to be late if you don’t wake up” jumping out of bed as if I just had a bad dream I ran down the hall and jumped in the shower.

This is where it all began; the morning of September 24, 2008 was a day that I will never forget. It was a beautiful day the sun was shining and it was so warm, and I was ready to go lay by the pool. All my friends were gone off to college and on this day that’s exactly where I was going.

It was my first day of college and I had been stressing out about this day for the past two weeks and was ready to quit before I even started. I had so many mixed emotions and so many unanswered questions. Snapping at my parents if they even mentioned the word college for the past two weeks, “This is real”; I thought to myself I was really going a student at OSU-Newark.

I live about an hour away from Newark, so I made sure that I left my house in plenty of time to be on time to my classes the first day, I hate being late and I wasn’t going to start off the year being late. After the long drive I finally arrived and had about a half hour to spare. It was a good thing I left early, the parking lot was crazy I didn’t think I was ever going to find somewhere to park. Finally about 10 minutes later I found the last parking spot in the whole parking lot it seemed like.

Because the campus was so beautiful I decided to take a tour, students’ everywhere finding their way to class.It was also very small which I liked a lot. This was much better than I expected. When I got to my class the first day, I sat down and waited for the teacher to get there. I was very nervous, therefore I didn’t know what to expect. This wasn’t like high school after all.

My teacher was so nice, and all the kids in my class seemed so cool. After my first class was over I realized it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going be and I actually thought I might be able to stick it out for the next 10 weeks. I met up with one of my friends from high school who was also going to Newark I wanted to see how her day was going and if she liked it so far. We had so much to talk about and not enough time. She seemed like she was having a great day and I was to, things were starting to look up. I started to get excited for my next class and wasn’t as nervous anymore. I ended up loving my last two classes, I even made new friends. I couldn’t wait to get home and tell my parents how my day went. On my long drive home I kept taking in everything that had went on that day.

I still had many mixed emotions but I wouldn’t say that I was scared anymore; they were more of happy emotions. I realized that this was reality there wasn’t any more time to play around waste time. I knew that I was going to have to study more and pay attention and actually go to class. This wasn’t high school and I wasn’t being babysat. When I got home my parents couldn’t wait to hear how my day went. I told them how my classes were, that I was meeting new friends, how much I liked it. They were so excited to see I wasn’t as stressed as I had been and that I was beginning to realize that it wasn’t what I had made it look to be.

After my first quarter I now understand that college is hard and it’s not going to get any easier. I love college and all the new friends that I’m making, but I don’t like to study and to do all the homework, that’s just not me. That doesn’t mean that I don’t do it, because I do and I know that after all the stress I go through and when I think I ready to give up, everything will get better. This is only my first year as a college student I can’t give up because its hard or I don’t like it because I don’t know that I haven’t been through the hardest parts yet. Achieve your goals and follow your dreams, make them reality. Show everyone that doesn’t think that you can do it that you can, and that you’re going to.
So the weather is starting to get warmer..This is a plus! I was getting sick of the snow and driving all the way to Newark in it for school. The past couple of weeks haven’t been too bad, I haven’t been as stressed out as I was the previous quarter. My classes aren’t as hard as last quarter, I find myself slacking off more often because of that.

I find myself wanting to go out and have fun with my friends a lot lately instead of studying like I should, since I had midterm’s last week. Since most of my friends have been coming home a lot lately and since I don’t get to see them as much as I’d like it’s hard to resist the invitation. I knew there would be consequences and I knew that I still had to manage to make it to class on time the next day no matter how tired I was.

Well when I got a sucky grade was when I realized that there was no time for play and I had to get serious. I should of known that there was no way that I could of stayed out late with my friends and then wake up a go take my midterm I didn’t even really study.

It’s hard since my parents don’t really care what I do. But I know that I need to get my priorities straight, I should study always study first before going out.
