Freshman Year

After several long nights, either for studying, watching Game Show Network, or countless other reasons, I am proud to say I survived my freshman year of college! There were highs and lows, my grades were by no means perfect but they are fixable. I made friends that I can not wait to see in three short months, I would say that’s pretty great as a former homeschooler who stayed in her room all the time.

All in all freshmen year was pretty great. I wanted to talk about some stuff I did this school year and what I plan on doing over the summer.
Over fall break I was able to go on a mission trip with my school to a town called Nederland. We helped clear out houses that had been affected by the hurricane that swept through earlier that year. It was a lot of work and at times it was incredibly heartbreaking but I am glad I went.
Sometime after Halloween but before Thanksgiving, I cut my hair the shortest it has ever been. My best friend just graduated from cosmetology so I had her cut my almost elbow length hair to resting right above my ears. I’m very excited to not do anything to my hair and just see what happens.
I joined a sorority. I’m officially a part of Delta Pi Theta. I love it!
My future roommates and I got THE LAST dorm room that has a kitchen which is just a blessing.
I did a lot of things, met a lot of people, it was super fun and I cannot wait to see what sophomore year holds but alas, summer has come and with it, my new friends have gone.
I only have a couple plans for the summer, I think that’s okay though.
First, my school’s library is doing this reading challenge where they want the whole school to read a million minutes and I plan on contributing to that quite a bit.
I want to make a quilt out of a bunch of old T-Shirts that I have laying around but will never wear.
I want to help at my church whenever I can, I want to try to blog more regularly, and I want to just relax and get ready to rock this upcoming semester.

I’m so happy that I have had the opportunity that a lot of people don’t get in going to college and I am happy that I am still excited about school. It has been great and I can’t wait to go back.

Sincerely,
Tayler

Life Update (College is Busy)

So, it’s been a while. While I understand that I’m the only person that has ever seen this blog I still feel bad for not posting. I made those two posts over spring break and haven’t really touched this since. I feel like I haven’t been posting for two reasons, the first being I don’t know how to fit blogging into my schedule so I haven’t tried. The second reason is that I just don’t know what to post about. I’m not really feeling the format of the first two posts I made even though that’s what every “how to blog” Pin said to do. It feels fake, that’s not how I talk at all. I would feel weird telling people about it because it just doesn’t sound like me. I’m going to post to this blog when I can but I can’t promise a consistent format or theme at all. It’s finals season here and grades are way more important to me than this blog currently is. I’m working on a post that I think will be good, maybe I can have it up by Sunday (no promises though). For now, I figured I would just talk about what I’ve been up to lately.

This semester has gone by so fast, it’s pretty bittersweet. On one hand, I’m happy that I’ll be home and won’t have to do any homework for three months but on the other hand, I won’t get to hang out or see all my friends for THREE MONTHS!
I joined a sorority this semester and am very excited about what that has in store. Everyone is so nice in the sorority and some of my friends are also in it which is always a plus.
Through the sorority, I met the people I will be rooming with next year. We were able to get the last dorm room that had a kitchen and I am so happy about that!
I have decided to try out for the school’s dance team even though I have no formal training. Tryouts are this weekend and I feel very unprepared but I’ll do the best I can and hope for the best!
I have planned on writing a children’s bible study for my church to use over the summer and I’m very excited about that.
Since I made this blog to talk about getting better grades, I’m going to talk about those.
Overall I am doing better than last semester! I have B’s in most of my classes and am close to getting an A in biology which is great! Turns out, I forgot to send on of my transcripts from my dual enrollment courses over. It was a class that I got an A in so once we finally got that sent over it brought my GPA up to a 3.0. I am so happy with that! Let that be a lesson to make sure you get everything transferred that needs to be transferred.

I think that’s enough updating for now. I’ll post again soon (hopefully).

Have a great day,
Tayler
