Back to School

Tomorrow marks the first day of my last semester as a college student!!!! It's weird to look back over the last four years and think, at this point my senior year if high school I had never even heard of the university I ended up attending. And even after I applied, I didn't really want to go here. And here I am, about to start my last semester at an institution I have grown to love immensely, and that has shaped me in ways I couldn't have imagined four years ago. I'm so excited to have made it this far, and I'm super excited for all if the amazing opportunities I'm getting this upcoming semester!

First off, I'd just like to say I've worked so hard and have finally achieved my life's ambition: I'm getting to have a 12 hour semester!!!!!! Yes! You wouldn't think one class either way would make much of a difference, but it does. No more 18 hour course loads for me, thank you very much! Aaaaaand, two of my four classes are relatively easy: Classical Mythology (so fun), Advanced Grammar and Rhetoric (may be jumping the gun on this one)! My Independent Study and Medieval Lit classes won't be easy, but I love the professors who teach them, so I'm really execited! 

I'm also getting to do some amazing non-academic (still kind of academic things). I'm getting to do teaching observation at a private school in the area, I get to be the first ever TA at my university (and I even get to teach two classes!!!), i get to be literarure editor for the school paper, and I still get to do tutoring, which I love. 

In all there's a lot to look forward to in my last semester of undergrad. I've had a wonderful collegiate experience, and I'm grateful for all the people who helped make it that way. I can't wait to finish out this chapter in my life and start on the next one (which will hopefully involve employment and cats).
