Wow it was one Amazing week!
I decided that I would move to
Judson on my own without the help of my parents. So, Tuesday I loaded up my car
and made the three hour drive to Judson College. When I was about thirty miles
away from the school, I became very excited. I kept thinking over and over
again, “I’m a senior in college. I am almost finished with my time at Judson. I
can’t believe that this is my fourth year of college.” Even though it is only
my second year at Judson, I have grown extremely attached to this school. The excitement built until I reached JC. Once
I arrived on campus, I began the list of things that are necessary to validate
my enrollment and to move into my room. After an hour, I was ready to unload my
car. I could not wait to be done with that and to begin looking for my friends.
I had not seen some of them since April. Judson is such a small school; the
women that attend here all become extremely close. Last year I heard the
phrase, “Who needs sorority when you have sisterhood,” over and over again. I
missed my Judson sisters over the summer. It was so wonderful to catch up with
them Tuesday night!
Classes began on Wednesday. I was a
little nervous, but ready to see my instructors. I have many of the same teachers that I had
last year. One of the best parts about going to a small school is that students
can get to know their teachers. I know that if I ever need anything, I can ask
them for help. At other colleges and universities it is more difficult to form the
relationships that we can build at Judson. On Mondays and Wednesdays, I have
two education classes and a writing class.
It was good to get back into the swing of things.
Thursday, I began my morning with
Spanish at Marion Military Institute. If Judson does not offer a course,
students can often take the course at MMI. I also attended a Mythology and
British Literature classes on Thursday. I absolutely love being an Education/Language
Arts Major. I love to learn about literature!
On Friday, I did not have any
classes. In the morning, I had an education meeting concerning the upcoming
year. Normally, I will do field observation on Fridays in a local high school.
I believe that I will enjoy each
and every one of my classes this semester! I know that they will be hard, but I
can not wait to dive into them and get busy! That is all for now! I have
Homework to reckon with!
Love of Mother Judson, Anne Kirtley, and Sandra Fowler!
