All about me!…and UAHuntsville of course.
Can you believe that it’s already the 4th week of school? By now, everyone should be settled into their schedule and stressing over what their final grade will be. Oooops where are my manners, I’m Cassandra a junior psychology major sociology minor. I love hanging out with my friends, my family and my two dogs. I actually enjoy reading a good book over watching TV. (Yes, I’m a nerd). I’ve been stressing about Fall semester since last Spring.
Yes, I love UAHuntsville; in case you were wondering. This university has so much to offer from exciting HPE classes to challenging (but interesting) classes. If you live on campus you already know about the awesome residence halls! I live in North, the best upper-classmen residence hall on campus. If I’m late for class or a meeting I’m only about 5-10 min away depending on the location of such. I’m not a morning person whatsoever so I benefit from the extra 10-15 min snooze time I get from living on campus.
Let’s see….what am I looking forward to this semester? Glad you asked! I’m striving to make all A’s this semester (which isn’t looking to bright thanks to my Psych stats class), making it a priority to go to the gym consistently this entire semester (which is going well) and making new friends. Seems pretty legit, huh? Well we all know with hard work comes failures. I just try to roll with the punches and keep trying. Plus if we never fail, how will we know how to succeed? Think about it! Until next time…Charge On!
A Charger Newbie
I’m so excited to be writing for the Charger Nation blog, and would like to begin by sharing a little about myself.
I’m here at UAHuntsville as a Junior, but it’s been 8 years since my sophomore year, so I consider myself an “old newbie”. I’m majoring in Management, and leaning towards Information Systems. I’m a mother of 5 kiddos who inspire me to work harder than I ever have before. I have a passion for reading, though I must admit that the past few years it’s been mostly children’s books. I also feed my creative side by sewing when I have free time, which hasn’t been much, as of late. I’d love to consider myself a coffee snob, but I can’t afford it, lol. I also believe bacon is the best food group. My husband of 15 years is incredibly supportive of everything I undertake and is cheering me on as I dive back into academia.
Beginning my first semester as a Charger has been amazing. I’ve met so many great people, from faculty to students and feel like I couldn’t have made a better choice than UAHuntsville. My advisor, Cheryl Plaza, helped to spark my excitement before I even set foot on the campus. She sincerely believes in her college and passes that enthusiasm to the students she works with. My instructors have been so helpful, answering all my questions as I reacquaint myself with college life.
One of the things I’m looking forward to as the semester progresses is finding ways to become more involved in what’s going on around the campus. There are so many things to do, and ways to find them. I’m following every UAHuntsville related Twitter I could find, added all the great Facebook pages and even checked out their Maptin app online. This is definitely a college that feeds every aspect of the student’s life. Theater, music, technology, and even food…it’s all right here. I have friends that are a little jealous because they chose a different school, but I’m really happy with my choice.
I hope everyone has a great week!
“This is the post that never ends…
…yes it goes on and on my friend. Some people, started singin’ it not knowing what it was, and they’ll continue singin’ it forever just because…”
Hi there everyone! It has been 3 months since the epic trip out to Romania. I miss my classmates a lot, and reminisce on my fond memories. A few of them still keep in contact. For that, I am grateful.
So you wonder what have I been up to? Since my return, I had to write a report and take an exam to complete the Study Abroad course. Because that was my last class, in August, I officially met all of the requirements for graduation!!! So yay me [Suite Life of Zack and Cody reference there...], I’m done! At least for awhile… I need a break after all of this studying/schooling/homelife/working schedule. Then for labor day weekend, I went to DragonCon – it was a very jam-packed weekend with many, many people in Atlanta. I recommend everybody go at least once in their life.
But saying the happy part that I am done leads me to a sad part. Because I graduated, I will not be able to blog for UAH anymore (the whole “student” status goes away once you complete school). I encourage all of you to keep in contact with me for any questions, comments, or just to say hi. I will try to submit a guest blog from time to time, and of course, I will be at UAH for commencement, alumni events, and the like. If you would like to contact me, my email address will be as follows: STW0004@alumni.uah.edu
Thanks for reading, and all the best of luck to you!
