The Best Semester Ever

A little blurb on my final fall semester

The Best Semester Ever
Sydney Jameson

I just completed my last fall semester as an undergraduate student. It was a semester of transition in many ways, but it ended up being a laid back, fulfilling, and incredible semester. I was able to focus on relationships and extracurriculars in a more intensive manner than I had been able to before, and I realized the blessings that came with backing off on academics and focusing on the others aspects of life. I had one of my best semesters ever, and I wouldn't change it for the world.

I never realized how deeply affectionate and caring my friends could be. I knew they were incredible, but I broke a barrier this semester that allowed for deeper relationships and in turn, new relationships that have brought color and warmth to my life. I was able to see just how unique and special my college really is and just how wonderful the people are that inhabit it. I made strides in figuring out who I was as a person, I took risks in things I never thought I would, and I got to experience sides of life I never thought quite possible. This all sounds dreamy and fun, but that didn't mean there weren't challenges on the offset, and I had to deal with finding a sense of independence and self-worth I hadn't quite tapped into. It's been a ride, but overall, I feel incredibly privileged and grateful for the semester I was able to lead and to experience what I did. It was the semester that I needed and because of that, it was the best semester ever.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
