Woah. People really don't mess around when they say summer goes by fast!
As the August humidity permeates the air around me, all I can hear and talk about lately is the anticipation of a new school year starting. After a pretty successful, yet busy, freshman year at Longwood University, I am mentally steady and all packed for my sophomore year as a college student.
My goals for this year not only involve my school work but staying active in the social aspect as well!
Thankfully the attitude of Lancers is contagious in the sense that everyone is quick to miss our ever-growing campus during summer break. While some may be the type to drag their feet back to a fresh school year, I am glad to say that I find myself somewhere in between now.
Now for those who don't know me, I am far more of a summer-loving gal than one who jumps at the idea of the pumpkin haze of fall. With that in mind, I prefer to focus on the college campus I have come to know as my real home away from home.
Throughout my first year, I worried so much about how my grades would turn out, so I made sure I figured out how, where, and when I did my best studying. Now that I am comfortable with my own studying habits (for the most part), I want to be more involved with campus life and maybe join another club or two.
What I want to gain from this next school year at Longwood goes beyond maintaining good grades. I also want to continue with general self-improvements that I have started this summer such as exercising and staying fairly organized with everything I have to keep up with.
