Hello Concord family,
Ahhhhhhh February one of my favorite months came and went by so fast. This month is meaningful to be because is black history month, even though I think black history should be celebrated every month. Not only that this was my first month back to school to start spring semester and once again is going by fast as well.
I spent the first few days of February at home spending some last quality moments with my family. Then I packed up and went back to St. Thomas. Right as I got back to UST I was thrown into classes and all the other activities going on campus. Needless to say, this month has been extremely busy, and I felt myself disconnecting from everything and just focusing on school. Just like last semester I had to find the balance of school and having fun as well. I realized even more this past few weeks that just focusing on school is great and I get my things done but at the same time I have to balance it out with other stuff.
Classes wise I think I am slowly finding my groove and handling my classes the best way I can. This semester I am taking Human Biology, Theology 394, Active non-violence and Sociology. I really like how my classes are all across the map because slowly is helping get a better idea of what I want to major in. So far, I am doing good in classes and keeping up with my work even though at times I feel backed up. As for next week, I am preparing myself for a paper that is due and two exams, but I am not too worried because I know as long as I put in the work the outcome will be good. Overall, I am enjoying my classes and looking forward to the rest of the semester.
The exciting part of this month was celebrating black history month and doing all the activities that went with it. I have enjoyed the discussions revolving around race, talking about what it means to be black, the workshops and the dinner that wrapped it all up. Even though this month is over I will continue to celebrate black history every month.
Well Concord family, this is what my month looked like. I know is all over the place but that is how chaotic it felt at times. Stay tuned for next month!
Until next time,
