Journal #6 – My Semester So Far

I am already halfway through my first semester of college and it has been so much more than what I was expecting. I thought I would be in a sorority, continuing on with yearbook and sports photography, and living it up in PLC. Only one of those things have come true and I am loving PLC! I also decided that I did not want to continue with yearbook because my experience in high school and I wanted to devote my time doing something I enjoy, which in this case is RUF/NEK Lil’ Sis. Joining Lil’ Sis was the best decision I have made thus far. As far as classes go, I am still not any closer to choosing a major and am still trying to figure that out. My classes have not been super stressful, although US History and Italian are looking to be my hardest classes. I’ve really enjoyed the GEF program because it also gives me an opportunity to explore and get involved with the international side of campus. I have had some trouble getting involved with an international organization but I think the International Film Club is a really great option for me because it is more enjoyable and would not be a super big time commitment because I am generally busy in the evenings. I am really looking forward to see how the rest of the semester pans out.

  1. Hi Alex!
    I appreciate how in this post you reflect on what you thought this semester would be like versus what it actually turned out to be and how something that wasn’t in your original plan ended up being your favorite activity. I thought I was going to be involved in as many things as I could when I came to OU, but then I realized that putting more time and effort into a few groups I really love and enjoy would be more fulfilling than putting minimum effort into as many clubs as possible.
