After weeks of hard work and fun, second semester flew by and now there is less than two weeks remaining. I just finished my last lecture in The American Presidency with Professor Ambar and that was when it all hit me. I would certainly miss these 9:20 a.m. lectures and our class’ interesting and lively discussions. We ended the class by discussing Obama’s legacy and predictions for the upcoming election cycle. Although I’m an engineer, I hope I will have time for another political science class somewhere down the road.
Furthermore, last week, we celebrated our successful frisbee season with a whole day of festivities. We had a spike ball tournament, played corn-hole, can-jam, and ended with a great meal at Asian Bistro. It was nice to spend one last day with the entire B-team before the end of the semester.
Although I will miss some things about the semester, there are also things that I won’t. Without practice, I now have an abundance of free time, which means I can get my work done much earlier. Furthermore, now that classes are basically over, I don’t have three calculus, two physics, and one computer science homework due per week. I feel a lot less stressed which is certainly refreshing. Moreover, I can now sleep in and study for finals feeling awake and focused.
There’s also next year to look forward to, which will have even more opportunities than this year. I’ll be working as a Gryphon and I’ll be starting my actual engineering courses.
When one door closes, another two open.
