Back at SMC!

Sunday I finally got to move back into SMC. I don't usually like to wake up early but I was totally fine with leaving my house at 9am to start the trip back.  After checking the mail I found out that I was selected to be an O-Leader for the Class of 2017. This means that I will get to come back to campus a week early next semester! It would be an understatement to say that I'm excited about this.

I'm all moved into my suite and am already liking it much more than my housing in New Zealand. It's much better when you already know the people that you will be living with. It also just feels really good being back on campus. The first day of classes went well. We played games to get to know each other for the first half of my Marketing class. My Evolution class was interrupted by a squirrel that ran past the window and caught my professor's eye. Classic Saint Mike's!

A Whole New Year

2012 sure was a great year for me. Spending almost five months in New Zealand may have had something to do with that... But even before New Zealand it was a good year. I had my best semester grade wise, took some awesome classes, and was able to hang out with everyone before leaving for the other side of the world. I think I've actually grown a lot this past year. I did all my own grocery shopping and cooked all my own meals, traveled all by myself, and I feel like I have a better idea as to what I want to do after graduation (although there are still lots of things to decide about).

This year promises to be a good one. I'm hoping to get an internship this summer so that I can finally start getting some ecology experience outside of the classroom. It's hard to believe how quickly this past year has gone by and I really hope that time slows down a bit. I hope everyone had a great New Year's Eve and have a happy New Year!
