19 credits

CollegeChloe Gordon

I’m back at college after a very very long winter break. Don’t get me wrong, I love a break from school, but I’m one of those people that loves learning and being around inspiring people and topics. School is where I thrive in a way.

This semester I’m taking 19 credits which is a little ridiculous and I will probably regret it once we actually start getting assignments, but for now I couldn’t be more excited. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays I’m taking my core curriculum classes (social problems, writing, and stars and galaxies). They’re cool, don’t get me wrong, but they are pretty bland. 

On the flip side, on Tuesdays and Thursdays I’m taking major based classes (concepts and creativity, branding strategies, and media, information, and technology). I can’t even begin to describe me excitement for these classes. My professors are the most inspiring people ever, in fact, my branding teacher lived in Milan for four years working on releasing Snickers. Um, hello perfection. 

I was just sitting in my classes yesterday realizing how lucky I am to be in college. This is what it’s supposed to feel like. Like I’m surrounded by people with dreams, and goals, and perspectives. Like I’m learning a ton, but also having a lot of fun. Like I’m inspired. Like I’m home.

I can’t wait to see what the future holds, but for now I’m enjoying living in the now and seeing what I can gain from all of my amazing classes, all 19 credits of them.

Thanks for reading!
