Blog 3: Experience

In high school, I dreamed of leaving the city for college. I wanted the full “college experience” and the aspect of dorming was really appealing. When I ultimately made the decision to attend Baruch, I didn’t know what to expect. Fortunately, my experience at Baruch has lived and exceeded my expectations. I’ve met a lot of awesome people and made new friends. The teachers are great. Commuting is a horror as I’d expected, but nothing unbearable.

In my first semester, I ended up dropping my calculus class. I ended up making more commitments than I could handle. I didn’t do as well as I could’ve, but I’ll work harder next semester. Even if I could turn back time and start the semester over, there isn’t much I could change. I can only keep pushing forward and hope that I’ll be able to prioritize better next semester.

Since I started school at Baruch, I’ve learned to have better time management. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always been a great procrastinator and still am, but I’ve also learned how to manage my time more efficiently. I’ve learned a lot academically and that college is a great experience if you actively pursue it.

Klutzy

Blog 2: Monologue

I am a klutz, there’s just no other way to describe it. I’ll trip over anything and nothing – from cracks in the street or even over my own two feet. I’ll slip in the rain and on the stairs. Perhaps there’s something I’m doing wrong that I don’t realize, but I always find myself in the clumsiest situations.

I have three humiliating and painful memories that I remember most:

Once when I was around seven, I was speeding down my stairs with all the energy of a typical kid. Back then, I lived on the fifth floor of a building in which there were no elevators. As I nearly reached the last flight of stairs, I suddenly missed a step and rolled all the way down. Luckily, I didn’t hurt anything significant and simply stood up and walked out the door.

Then when I was about 13, there was a time when I was hurrying to get home in the snow and rain. I had my hood up and my scarf covering half my face. I was facing the ground so that the wet coldness wouldn’t seep into my eyes. I was walking so fast that I suddenly walked straight into a lamppost! It was like a scene straight out of a movie, except much more painful!

My third klutzy memory was just last year when I was sitting on an airbed during a vacation in the Poconos. To start off, I should mention that I’m a tiny Asian girl, weighing approximately 100 lbs. My male friend (who was much heavier than I was) decided to jump on the other end. As a result, the bed acted like a trampoline and I literally bounced off headfirst into a nearby table stand. Can you even imagine that? Well it happened, and it hurt!

Perhaps I’m just destined to bump (pun intended) to bump into these klutzy situations! Haha.

Hello world, this is me.

Blog 1:

It’s hard to define a person entirely. Although there’s nobody who knows me better than myself, even I’m constantly surprised by my actions and reactions. Simply put, I’m a mess of contradictions – I’m a master procrastinator, but I work well under time constraints. I love meeting new people, but I’m a horrible at public speaking. I like chocolate but hate chocolate flavored snacks. But I guess that’s what makes me interesting!

As a freshman, I have the same concerns as everybody else. First, time management. The course load builds up quickly so it’s important to be on top of it. Second, keeping my grades up! I’m determined to do well academically – even if math is my weak point. And finally, finding my own social comfort zone in a school where most students commute right after their classes.

I didn’t enter Baruch with high expectations, but to my relief, Baruch has exceeded those expectations. The overall environment has been great – the down-to-earth friendly people, good professors in most subject areas, and just being in the center of a busy city. I love not having to wake up at 6AM to get to school on time and the flexible schedule. I believe my first year at Baruch will prove to bring great times and memories.
