Journal #1 – Where Have You Been and Where Are You Going?

My name is Johanna and the first thing you should know about me is I like turtles and don’t like sweets. I wouldn’t mind a sweet turtle though. I grew up in Flushing, Queens with an older sister who is currently in Paris doing a study abroad. I hope to also be able to study abroad and go different places in the world so I can meet new people and have new experiences. This past summer I traveled to Taipei, Taiwan to study Chinese. It was a new experience living on my own. I learned how to take care of myself and really be independent. Before I went to Taiwan I used to be very closed person, but overseas I made a few good friends and learned how to let others in. I also did some self-discovery and soul searching. I came to realize some things about myself and I guess you could say I got to know myself better. I hope to adjust to college life faster because I think my brain is still thinking about the past summer and traveling around the world. As a college student I expect to be challenged but also to manage my time. I expect that I will push myself to be a better person academically and physically (going to the gym every week). I am worried about my grades because as an Honor’s student I have to maintain a certain GPA. I hope to meet new people and establish connections because I hear college is the best time for doing that. Above all, I wish to have a good college experience because everyone tells me how fun college is.

  1. I hear Taiwan is a really pretty country and clean too. It’s nice to hear that you’ve learned about yourself in your experience there. But now we’re in college to learn about more stuff!

    I’m sure you’ll be able to make college super duper fun. Hope to see you at the gym some time.

  2. (lol) Turtles…

    Honor’s GPA requirement… I am worried about that too.

    Hope your college experience will be a fun one.

  3. Johanna,

    I hope you study abroad as well! I am currently in the process of trying to figure that out. Junior year is the most ideal time so think about where you would like to go.

    Try not to stress about your grades. Focus on doing the work for each class. Don’t get caught up in having a good gpa because you are just going to torture yourself. You will do well and if you are having issues with that then just ask for help. We are here to help you succeed! Remember that =)


  4. We will have a countdown for our website to drop make sure you stay tune for the date
