So this week is the last week of the semester and it is pretty bitter sweet. This semester started off really well, but it ended pretty terribly. I've never done this bad in school and I'm struggling to pass a class! That has definitely never happened! I'm really bitter about how I did this semester. I really did not have my priorities straight and I honestly contemplated dropping out. I was doing so well at my job and I really got ahead of myself. The sweet part is that now I realize that school is important and I have every intention of getting priorities together. I now see that school is not a party or meant to be extremely fun, but when you make the best of it, it can be really enjoyable. I'm actually really excited for next semester to start, and to get all my classes. I really want to do all my homework and do the best that I can. I really am sick of selling myself short and not living up to my full potential. On a more serious note, I have my child development final tomorrow. I really messed up in that class this semester. I really did not like the teaching style of the professor and honestly this professor would contradict the book and teach the opposite of what was on the test, so i stopped going to class all together. I lost a lot of participation points. Honestly, I know people say don't skip class because it's a waste of money and your paying to be there, but being in that class made me either fall asleep or made me want to yell because I was so frustrated that the professor taught the opposite of the book. However, this class was a huge turning point for me, and I realized that I don't want my major to be child development. I changed my major to Spanish and I went and met with a counselor and found out I'm ahead of schedule on my classes for this major! So even though this semester had its downs, I'm really excited that I learned from it and can close this chapter of my life and move on to the next.
