I can’t believe that Christmas break is over already! I’ve been so spoiled being home and enjoying the amazing home-cooked meals that my mom and grandma make and being able to sleep in as long as I wanted. As I was driving up, I felt as if I was in for a rough transition from the mindset of break to having to wake up early for classes, getting assignments done, and working toward deadlines. However, once I got back to PUC and was able to see all of my friends, I realized that the transition would not be as hard as I initially thought.

It was nice spending a lot of quality time catching up with everyone, hearing about each other’s Christmases and sharing our New Year’s resolutions. When it comes to school, I have resolved that I will do my best to avoid my horrible tendency to procrastinate and to try and actually remain organized throughout the entire quarter. I aim to make these resolutions habits that will persist through the rest of my college career, however, I also could see myself abandoning these goals midway through the second week.

The first day of class was full of interesting developments. The most pleasant one in my opinion was the weather. I was thrilled to see that the temperature was in the mid 60s and has persisted through the rest of the week. The first week is always interesting because it’s the week where everyone is trying to find those classes that contribute to their idea of a perfect schedule, such as your earliest class being at 12 p.m., while still having a full load of 17 credits (yes, it is possible). We students also get to enjoy a relatively stress-free week and look forward to all the exciting possibilities the quarter holds for each and every one of us.
