I am definitely ready for classes to start. I miss the campus atmosphere and meeting new people in class. I miss walking into class and learning new things along with other people. This Fall I am taking five classes instead of four like the previous semesters. I will be attending two classes on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s and I have three online classes.

Wow what a weekend it has been! I try to make the best of every weekend I have off from work and try to do something fun. Until Monday, I did not have anything planned for this past weekend.

Some of the hard ones may include, #20 Study abroad for a semester, #60 Add to your Co-Curricular Transcript by completing Leadership 101, 102, and 103 and, #94 Partner with a faculty member in an Undergraduate Research project and present your work at a conference. Some of them are ongoing tasks that I can not say I completed until the end of school, such as meeting with a professor at least once each semester and collect as many free t-shirts as you can. I am thinking about doing as many of these items as I can. I will live by the “pictures or it didn’t happen” rule for all of these as best as I can! I think that would be really awesome!
