Bringing It Home – The Saint Rose Blog

My Last First Day of Fall Semester at Strose

You want to know how good my first day was? It was so good that it took me at least 5 minutes to write the title of this blog… I kept typing My First Last Day… Go me!

Anyway guys, Welcome back to Saint Rose!!!! 😀 I know I’m glad to be back! It’s so weird, however, because it’s my senior year. My.Senior.Year. Where has the time gone?! I remember when I was a freshman and I was so nervous and excited and new… Now I’m old, but what can you do?

Today was definitely a day that I was very mentally unprepared for. I think it’s because I’m in denial about being a senior still.. Once again, it’s so weird! Just wait ’till you’re here, and if you are here… then maybe you agree with me? I don’t want to leave. 🙁

My first day started at 6 a.m. when I groggily rolled out of bed for my 7:35 a.m. class. I’m actually really excited for this class, so I’m not even mad that I have to wake up so early. The class I’m taking is called Learning! It’s all about memory and the brain. I love this stuff so much that I was tempted to read the textbook over summer vacation. I just think it’s going to be a really exciting class regardless that I will be half asleep while attending lectures. It’ll hopefully wake me up and make me more of a morning person so I can get more done and procrastinate less.

As I start this year, I’ve set out some goals for myself that I really hope to follow! These are:

  1. Do AWESOME in all of my classes (AKA: Get an A in everything). I’ll let you know if I accomplish this by the end of the semester. I desperately want to.
  2. Do not cry over class stress. This happens. I get so stressed that I cry and think I’m not doing well, and then BAM. I’m doing well. I can’t do that anymore.
  3. Live Strose life to the fullest!
  4. See EVERYTHING Albany has to offer! It’s my senior year and I know for a fact there are still things in Albany that I do not know about! If anyone knows of anything cool and exciting coming up, let me know! Maybe we can go together! 🙂
  5. Not procrastinate. If you’ve read my blogs before you all know this is a problem I’ve slowly been overcoming. I need to conquer it and step all over it this year… I just have to.

I hope everyone had a great first day of classes! Regardless of the fact that most of my professors read their syllabus to us word for word, it was a really swell day filled with friends, planner organizing, and goal setting!

What are some of your goals this year? 🙂
