My first few weeks of school have been amazing! I love college already. My classes are interesting, and my teachers are laid back. I am taking English, psychology, U.S. History, and philosophy. My English teacher gives us a lot of work, and we have already done four essays. My psychology teacher is young and full of energy. I get excited to go to her class every Monday and Wednesday. My history class is even more interesting than I imagined it would be. I’ve already learned so much that it’s hard to imagine how much I will know when the semester is over. My philosophy class is a little harder to follow along with, because instead of learning about philosophers like I thought the class was, we’re learning how to think philosophically. Our essays are difficult to write because my teacher wants it in a totally unnatural format than is typical of essays.
Overall, beginning college is how I hoped so I could get used to it. My first impression of college was that it was a lot like high school, just with more work. The work is not hard, but it is time consuming. I was expecting that college would be insanely difficult work that would be impossible to finish. I have turned in every assignment on time in my classes so far, and am feeling very proud of myself. There is no better feeling than turning in an assignment you slaved on for a while. I am looking forward to going to football games and meeting new people in class. It is harder to make friends in college because people don’t really talk to each other, but I’m sure if I join a sports team or club, I will make friends much easier. I think that these next four years really will be the best years of my life.
