Sophomore Year Is A Lot Better Than Freshman Year

How sophomore year is already better than freshman year.

Abbygale Watkins

Don't get me wrong, I loved freshman year and had a lot of fun. Sophomore year is definitely already off to a better start than freshman year. Freshman year wasn't very hard academic wise, but meeting new people was kind of tough. I joined a sorority because I had a hard time meeting new people. Not that I am antisocial or anything, I am just a shy person. After I have met you I will talk your head off, there is just something about putting myself out there that makes me uncomfortable.

I knew who my roommate was so I was not really worried about that. I was scared that she would be my only friend. Turns out I actually made a lot of friends and I did not even realize that I was making friends. I was in a chemistry class of only thirty people. Being with those thirty people we all became really close. We had a Monday, Wednesday, Friday class together and then some of us had lab together. All of us would at least be with each other for nine hours of the week just counting in class time.

At the sorority house, I was a little afraid to go because I knew only three people. So first semester I was not at the house very much and did not meet a lot of people. Second semester, I was living my best life. I made myself go to the house every time I had any free time. I would come for lunch, dinner, to study, even just to talk to people. I had met so many new faces and made many new friends.

Sophomore year honestly has already been a whole lot better than freshman year and it is only the second week of school. I have gotten a lot closer to the girl that I had met second semester. I have even gotten close to girls that I meant this school year.

At the beginning of this week, I was going throw a lot of things. It felt like my life was falling apart. These girls literally sat there listened to me, comforted me when I was sad and did everything they could to make me smile. I am so thankful for my friends and I have no clue what I would do without them.

Life lesson: Put yourself out there and get involved with whatever organization you can. In the end, it will be the best decision you've made!

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
