My first semester at UNT was insanely crazy. From awkward living situations to impossible 8 a.m. classes, I have learned so much about myself, college, my future, and.. really, everything.
I have made so many mistakes and can’t wait to start fresh next semester and make a lot less. I am definitely looking forward to knowing what to do and what NOT to do in order to be more successful in all of my courses. Here’s a list of some things I have learned this semester:
- 8 a.m. courses do not build character… if you’re not a morning person, you really should avoid them.
- talking to your professors is kind of important. I wish I had had relationships with all my professors like the one I have with Laura!
- jumper cables are really an important thing to keep in your car.. and if those fail, I know the number to a really good towing company
- balance is key.. in every aspect of your life.
- I will never be able to plan for EVERYTHING.. it’s not possible. Life throws waaaay too many curve balls.
- it’s okay to be undecided
And one of the most important things I feel like I learned is that it was okay for me to not know my major. Majoring in something does not lead you directly to a career. There will be a lot of different roads that’ll lead me to where I need to be but until then, I just need to take everything it as it comes.
But, I have chosen a major AND a minor… at least for now.
I am taking courses during the spring semester to help make sure that Anthropology and History are right for me. I have a good feeling that they are though. I’d really like to be a museum curator but I’m keeping my options open. Who knows what careers will have been created by the time I graduate?
UGST has been so crucial in me figuring out what I value and what I love. This has led me to start realizing what college I belong at here at UNT. Being an undecided major has been the best decision I have made.
I am really thankful for UGST because it has surrounded me with a really interesting and fantastic group of people that have taught me a lot.
