It’s been awhile since I have posted on this lovely blog, so I thought that I’d get to it and kick off the new semester with a new post! Winter Break was absolutely wonderful and i’m thankful to have had the chance to go back home as well as visit friends and family during my super long five week break. However, it’s great to be back in the swing of things, here at Bryn Mawr. A new semester means a new schedule, and for some odd reason, it was super hard to finalize my class schedule this year. It might also be the fact that I am in the process of declaring my major and minor, but I had to think extra hard about which classes I wanted to take this semester.
I have to admit – I never really used shopping week to it’s full advantage before this semester. I’d usually have all of my classes decided upon during pre-registration period, and that would be it. However, it was really hard to find classes that I wanted to take during this semester. Not because all of the classes were really bad – there were some that sounded absolutely amazing! But because many of the classes I wanted to take were all at the same time! What a bummer. It’s the most frustrating thing when you want to take two classes, but you can only choose one. However I had to be picky, and in the end I did end up choosing one over the other.
This semester, it seems as though I will only be taking three classes. It’s the first time that i’ve ever done this, so i am quite nervous about it! I’m worried that I won’t use my time wisely, but hopefully I’ll be able to find something useful to do with my spare time. Maybe more trips into the city! I have to say, I haven’t been able to explore Philadelphia nearly to the extent that I want to. Or an externship/internship is also a possibility! It’s great that Bryn Mawr accepted my IB credits from high school though…I don’t have to worry about not having enough credits for graduation…phew! I guess this flexibility is something that comes along with attending a great liberal arts college (as rated by Washington Monthly!)
On a side note – it is absolutely bone-chilling cold these days! And to add to that, it’s been snowing so much compared to last year! I went back to Seoul this past Winter Break and it was always negative-something-degrees while I was there. It was seriously COLD. However this weather might beat it! It was less than welcoming after being in Los Angeles for the last part of my break. People were wearing shorts and t-shirts during the week that I was there! I remember it being around 80 degrees! (what?!) Anyways, hopefully this cold weather won’t stay for long…or it’ll have hell to pay! (hope that was clever…)
Cheers to the New Year and semester!
Until Next Time!
