It’s been awhile since I’ve posted on here. I’ve just been busy with assignments and projects for my classes. I do have a few things to update you all on. I got a new tattoo over my spring break, ended up making the President’s List for last semester, and I cut my hair.
First things first, I was happy I was able to get a new tattoo. My total count is now up to 10! I wanted to get my skull done and I’m happy the shop I went to had artists who were patient with me (I was pretty indecisive), but my artist managed to come up with a design based on some pictures I liked. I had it done on the inside of my upper right arm. The meaning behind this guy is this – I’ve been lucky enough to avoid situations that would’ve landed me in the hospital or 6 feet under. I told someone it’s kind of like the opposite of me cheating death, it’s more like death has cheated me.
I was surprised to find out that I made the President’s List for last semester. I didn’t receive any type of notification, no email or letter. One of my professors had told me he saw my name in the Honors booklet during the Honors ceremony they had here a couple weeks ago. I managed to get a copy for myself and I sent a copy of the page to my grandparents so they would know I made the list. Apparently, my gpa for last semester was a 3.8, two points off from being a 4.0. I’m hoping that I get good grades in the classes I’m taking right now so my gpa stays up there.
As for my new haircut, I did it earlier today on a whim. I finished this assignment for one of my classes and thought to myself, “I feel like cutting my hair.” Of course, it ended up shorter than I expected, but I like it. I made one piece shorter while I was cutting my hair, so I had to do the right thing and try to make the rest of my hair even. I’ll probably straighten it again in the morning, but I think I did a pretty good job on my own.
Our last week of classes here are next Thursday and I am so excited for this semester to be over with. It really flew by for me. I’m happy I was able to be a part of my college’s newspaper. I have a few articles published that I can save for when I go to make my portfolio. It was kind of challenging for me because I’m not used to writing for a newspaper. I’m not sure about whether or not I’ll write for it next semester. Guess I’ll think about that over the summer.
Speaking of summer, I’m taking two summer classes. They’re both elective classes and it’s better for me because I get to take less classes during the Fall semester. I’m still looking for an internship, so hopefully I can get one before the semester gets here. Other than that, I should be set to graduate this Fall. I just have to make sure I do well in my classes so I don’t have to make anything up. I’m also planning on staying down here at my college during the summer after I finish my summer classes. The apartments I live in don’t require the students to move out and since I already renewed my lease, I don’t have to pack up my stuff.
I just hope I get to have some fun while I’m down here. I was thinking about visiting my brother because we haven’t seen each other since I was in middle school. He lives in Nevada and he said if i do come out there, we could drive to California. That would be even better because I haven’t been to CA since 2000. So, hopefully, I can save some money up for a plane ticket so I can get a chance to actually travel this summer.
I hope everyone is having a great April. I can’t believe that May is literally right around the corner. It seems like 2013 is flying right on by!
