Don't let me scare you too bad, though. Sometimes finals are not as bad as they seem. This year I got really lucky. One of my finals is online, one is a take home student evaluation that I get to turn in this week, and one I get to exempt because I have an A in the class and less than two absences. So I only have to take two real, in class finals and they are both on Monday, which is the first day of finals and then I am done. I mentioned before how I did not know when I would get the chance to study and you are probably thinking I have all the time in the world because I only have to study for two exams. This week is crazy crunch week. I have two papers, a presentation, two quizzes, and 8 online assignments due this week on top of going to class. I am hosting an end of the year banquet at the BCM one night, my pastor is having us over for dinner one night, I am going out to eat with two of my friends for their birthday one night, I have one more night of work, and I have to clean and pack everything up that I am taking home this summer. So as you can see, I am stressin a little about time management. I am staying positive though because I always find time study and I know that it is the most important thing right now and that if I need to, I can step back from some of my non-academic obligations this week.

So spring is officially here!! That excites me greatly because Spring is my favorite season second to f
all. The weather is warmer, the flowers are blooming, the grass is greener, and overall the outside environment just becomes so happy. Another reason spring time excites me is because after spending most of my time indoors in efforts to stay out of the cold, I have cabin fever and I am ready to get OUTSIDE! Campus life seems to pick up a bit more as well! There are so many things to do!! This weekend one of the Sororities hosted a really fun event called Bump it like Beckham to raise money and awareness for abuse. I participated in this event and it was a really fun just spending time outside and getting to know people in other groups and organizations. We got in huge inflatable balls and played soccer. I spent most of my time rolling around on the field because people kept bumping into me and I had a hard time staying on my feet. It was definitely a blast! Intramural sports are always a fun way to get involved on campus in the Spring. I hate working out. but with all the stress that comes with college exercising is necessary to stay healthy and to relieve some of that stress. Last spring I played on an intramural softball team. We called ourselves the bench warmers. It was loads of fun and even though the further you get into your spring semester the heavy the school work load gets, I was able to use practice times and game times as a study break. Since we are only an hour away from the beach, the college group at my church likes to take short worship beach retreats. It is such a refreshing time to relax and have fun in the sun. Another fun campus event that comes every spring is Oozeball. This is a mud volley ball tournament and it is easily one of my most favorite things to do on campus in the spring. I can not wait to play again this year!!
Like I said before exercise is a necessity in college so I try to find fun ways to get moving. What is more fun than running a 5k while getting colored powder thrown all over you? You can always find a group or organization hosting a color run or some sort of 5k on campus to raise awareness and money for different charities and fundraisers. With all of the fun things offered on campus during the spring, you are sure to find something to get involved with and have fun!

For me, college has been an amazing experience! In the beginning, I thought I knew what I wanted to do with my life but when I got here I was completely wrong. Being here has shown me what I love and have a passion for and what I want to spend the rest of my life doing. Coming to college is also a really great bridge that allows you to do some growing up. It is a lot more independent than high school, but you have a chance to grow up a little before you are thrown out into the real world. I have learned so much about myself while being in college that I do not think I would have had the chance to learn had I not gone to college. I have really grown as a person and I have made what I am certain will be life long friendships. Most people have that support and love from a group of close friends, but the reality is that most of them will go their own ways after graduation so coming to college allows you to create that support group of people who value the same things, are in the same classes, and that live life along side of you that you can carry with you throughout adulthood. So if you are on the fence about whether or not to enroll in college, take my advice and really consider it. Believe me, you will not regret it and it will be worth while.
