An event that changed my life was deciding to go to college.  At first i didn’t want to go.  I signed up late, slacked on my SAT’s and all throughout high school and still made it here last minute.  I guess that was a sign that i should pursue a higher education.  It changed my life because I’m sure i would be doing different things and such if i had not gone to college such as nothing.

I did not want to be a part of voices.  Like Anthony i wanted to sign in and leave.  I do not really appreciate acting nor do I want to hear the other voices of Baruch.  Just kidding.  It was pretty decent and the Asian guy had the funniest interpretation of everyone.  He reminds me of Harold from Harold and Kumar.

My first semester was not everything i thought it would be because it was better.  It was better because i expected classes to be harder but i still found time to slack and do well.  I hate all the reading and attendance rules.  I like playing basketball and how short the semester felt.  I did not join any clubs/sports/activities.  My commute was decent.  I am staying in Baruch.

I hear them in my head, ya know? No, but I didn’t like Voices. My monologue and Sam’s weren’t performed. Ours were pretty freaking cool. Everyone else performed was so generic and about entering college. Ugh. UGGGH. We would have been infinitely cooler. Anyways, I only really enjoy the Asian guy because he makes me laugh and he’s pretty good. The other people were drab. I would read better than them.

Now think back to August, tell me your thoughts, was your 1st semester everything you thought it would be? Better? Worse? What did you hate? What did you like? Did you join any clubs/sports/activities? Hows your commute? Are you staying here? etc…

 

My first semester was lame. I kid, it was nice, actually. Everything from getting up early to studying for tests has given me discipline. I lacked that before. I didn’t join any clubs, though I hope to. I hated only these breaks, which I kept unfortunately. I also loved the LC system. We all bonded so well. It really made this transition something of a fun one. I will be staying at Baruch for the next four years of my life. Well, three and a half anyway.

An event that changed my life was visiting Colombia last year in February. I had always gone back to Colombia when I was younger, sometimes even traveling back 2 or three times. It wasn’t until this past February that I took my trip as a growing experience. I didn’t focus on myself as much, but instead viewed how everyone else lived. I could tell that people felt lucky to have dinner that day. This year we traveled away from the city, to visit smaller surrounding towns. This made me realize how fortunate I was for the things I have. I always keep this in perspective.

My first semester went a lot better then I had expected. I made really great friends that really helped me adjust to being in college. I hated, I don’t really feel that I hated anything. I liked meeting new people and sharing laughs. I enjoyed being able to find a family relationship with my friends. My commute always went pretty smoothly. It only takes me 40-45 minutes to get to school when the express is running. I only have to take two trains, so I really cannot complain. I think I will be staying at Baruch. I am definitely more career oriented at the end of this semester and I am eager to take my spring classes.

I am pretty happy about my first semester here at Baruch. I’ve accomplished my dream of moving to the city. I’m living away from my family, I have so much freedom. I’ve experienced a lot of change this semester but I love it. I have made many friends, some that I can see I will remain close to for years to come. I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone and succeeded. The schoolwork can seem like a lot at times but I can keep it under control. I’ve enjoyed some classes more than others but they have been pretty good. I’ve learned I have a lot of trouble getting up in time for an 8:15 class even though I had to get up earlier for high school. So I am looking forward to next semester when my earliest class is 9:30. I am looking forward to taking some supposedly great professors and meeting even more people. I’m pretty optimistic about my future at Baruch and I cant wait for the next 3 and 1/2 years!

I did not think that voices was going to be good. I wanted to sign in and leave instantly, but I found that it was so interesting I almost stayed there instead of registering for classes (which I eventually did leave to do). The asian actor is the most intriguing of them all, I looked forward to every time he spoke, but all the rest were good as well.

I found the presentation by the STARR Center representative very informative. I did not know that getting an internship was that easy! All that has to be done is to go to the STARR Career Center and check the listings for internships in a particular field. The man was very coherent and enthusiastic about teaching us this important information. Even though doing interviews is a little nerve-racking, I’ll have to check into STARR during my next semesters at Baruch. Another good part of the meeting was that he made sure that we felt comfortable going to STARR by describing the staff to be very amiable and caring. Overall it was a nice experience that was definitely helpful for me, especially at a commuter school like Baruch.
