When I graduated from high school, the last thing I thought about was approaching senior year in college. Now that the time has come, I’m surprised to see that it's not as scary as I thought it would be. I thought I would be going crazy in my first few weeks of being a senior, but to be honest, it’s nice coming back to being busy, meeting deadlines, taking notes, and filling up my empty planner. I am finally at ease and staying on top of my classes and my job. It’s good to be back in school-mode!

Having stayed at PUC all summer, I knew they were renovating around the campus, and so far they’ve done a great job. The new look of the dining commons is very impressive and has a nice modern look to it. It looks like they’ve taken on more projects with landscaping, too. I thought the campus was beautiful before, but it’s beginning to look pretty gorgeous, just in time for Parents Weekend.

I’m really looking forward to this Parents Weekend in particular because I haven’t been home since Christmas break. Even though home is just an hour away in Oakland, I haven’t had the chance to visit my mom so I’m seriously happy to see her. I’ll probably take her on a tour to show her all the things they’ve done to the campus in the past few months. She’s going to love it! 

While I have that to look forward to, I just hope I can continue to stay on top of my class work and adjust to catching up on some sleep so I can get everything I need done and get started on my senior thesis project. All in all, it’s been a great year so far, and I can’t wait to see what the rest of it will bring!
