I am updating from my second home, Tisch Library. I actually spend more time in here these days than in my dorm room. Much more time. Studying for finals has been a train wreck of procrastination, but hopefully they’ll turn out alright. I have one exam tomorrow and two on Wednesday. Not terrible.
The year’s almost over and it’s been a learning experience for sure. I’ve learned so much about myself in the academic realm, the social realm, and the extracurricular realm. I’ve figured out a lot of my goals for the next few years and a lot more (cliche coming up) about who I am as a person and who I want to be. This, to me, has been the most valuable lesson, and I’m going to work as hard as I can to keep learning about these things.
But of course, the end of the year means that nice weather and summertime are here! I’m waiting to hear back from two jobs (one summer camp job, one internship at Tufts). I’m spending the summer working and taking two classes – an EMT class (takes up a lot of the summer) and a bartending class (just two weekends). I’m very excited. I’m hoping to spend some time with the Jumbos I’ve met at Tufts who also live in my area at home and travel a little bit (you know, drive to Canada or Maine or maybe take a train somewhere cool) for weekends occasionally. It’s going to be a nice break from schoolwork to prepare for a challenging sophomore year.
Now that all of your decisions are made – whether or not you are enrolled in the Class of 2013 at Tufts! – I hope you are at peace with them. Soon (by this I mean, July or something) you’ll receive a ton of information from Tufts. A summer reading book, roommate surveys, pre-orientation, and the tuition bill! If you have any questions, feel free to let me know. 🙂
