EDUC 1300 JournalWeek 1:This week was stressful to say the least. Although I didn’t do much of anything inany of my classes besides orientation activities and introductions, the pressure ofwhat it means to finally be a college student has definitely set in. This past week,although chaotic, has made me realize that I made the right choice when I left tradeschool. I feel like I’m being adequately challenged in class for the first time in years;which is definitely something that’s been missing from my academic life. I knowcollege will be stressful, but at least it won’t be boring. I’ve mapped out everythingfor the next four years and I’m exactly where I need to be if I decide to transfer toUNM before medical school, so I have some comfort in the knowledge that I’malready on my way to achieving my goals. Although I’m fairly organized and veryself motivated, I think this class will help me keep those attributes at the forefrontas I go deeper and deeper into these intense courses.
