"Keep going!" My mind keeps on telling me this day in and day out when things get tough or I start to feel overwhelmed up here at PUC. I didn't think it would take so much out of me working twenty-plus hours a week with a full course schedule. But it's what I like to do. I’ve found I need to keep busy and find something to challenge myself in life.

PUC has given me a great outlet in which to challenge myself this year. I'm running for video yearbook editor for the 2012-2013 school year, and my campaign seems to be going well. I really am excited about it, and it's keeping me busy. There's actually more than one person running this year—the first time this has happened in four years or so! Usually only one person wants the job. So I'm excited to see the outcome.

Being a film/fine art major, people would suspect that I have the easiest studies in the world. I must admit it's pretty enjoyable—but still as intensive as some of the other majors. We just use a different side of our brain for our learning. And in this field, finding a job that pays the bills is difficult. At least that's what my parents keep telling me. But PUC has a wonderful art program and offers me a great variety of ways to pursue my career choice, as well as keeping me busy.

Amongst all the stresses of this year, I still find much-needed time to spend with my friends. That's what keeps me going. I have met some amazing friends up here and they've given me the motivation to keep fighting for my dream.

My life overall: challenging but still fulfilling.
