The sound of birds chirping, flowers blooming, the breeze, the sunshine, and seeing new and familiar faces—all these things mean spring quarter to me. I am back to the beautiful campus of PUC. It is another opportunity for a fresh start. Even though it is only the first week back, I am already reading, organizing, and preparing for all of my classes. I feel motivated to get ahead and am prepared for what is to come.

I am so excited for this quarter because I get to take some classes that I have been waiting to take. One of the classes I am excited for is a class called Observation and Evaluation of the Young Child. I am an early childhood education major and one of the most important things in this major is being able to evaluate little children. We want to help set up a foundation for their future and give them the tools to be successful throughout their lives. I am looking forward to interacting with them.

As the first week is winding down, I am really looking forward to Friday night vespers. It is a time where we close a busy week and open the Sabbath with God. It is a time to relax and communicate with Him. We are here to achieve our goals and be successful. It is a part of growing up and being independent. We cannot go through this journey alone—with God anything is possible. Prayer is key. I wish for everyone to stay motivated and be successful throughout this quarter.
