It’s the first of January and I’m sitting in a hammock under the sun. Weird, right? I can’t imagine how hard it’s going to be to go back to rainy and cold Vancouver in a few days.
I’m happy though, because going back also means going back to the great friends I made this term, to my dear [small and messy] double room and well… to UBC.
I can’t believe how fast this term went by – one eighth of my university education. I laugh remembering how scared I was a few months ago about UBC and all the changes that it meant. Now I see those changes and I want them to keep coming at me, because I’ve loved all of them.
Someone asked me if I thought I had made the right decision by choosing UBC and all I could say was that I really can’t imagine myself somewhere else. If I had to chose again it would take less than a second.
I’m excited about going back and keep exploring the huge campus and finding friends among the 44,900 people that I don’t know yet.
Thinking about a new year and a new beginning made me want to make a list of the things I want to do again and the things I need to work on to make next term even better than this one. Here are some of the things I came up with:
- doing the readings when they’re due
- going to every event I can fit in my schedule
- taking courses that have almost nothing to do with my major (as long as they’re in Arts)
NEED TO WORK ON [bad]
- exploring Vancouver
- taking advantage of office hours
- writing essays before the night they’re due
- avoiding the cookie section of the cafeteria
- facebook addiction
