Priorities

Halfway through my sophomore year I was still deciding on my major. I came to SCSU anticipating psychology, then thinking business, then maybe education. Honestly every major offered here probably crossed my mind at some point. I was still stuck on partying with friends on the weekends and wasn’t too worried about what I was going to do with the rest of my life.

It seemed unrealistic to me to figure out what I wanted to do at the age of 19. I put it off until recently when I realized I needed to finally figure it out. I decided on Mass Communications- Public Relations with a minor in Psychology. I enjoyed the basic core classes and liked how interactive a lot of them were. Designing, creating and editing media were something new to be, but something I didn’t realize how much I enjoyed.

It is important for me to find a healthy balance between school, work and my social life. Coming closer and closer to the end, I think I am getting more motivated to finish with a bang and make an effort to really try the best I can, because I know that I have the ability to do so.

Friends That Last Forever.

All through high school I had a pretty close knit group of friends. We all did everything together, we were basically inseparable. Most of those close friends left St. Cloud for college so during the first few weeks it was hard to not have them there.

Thankfully since I was living in the dorms with a lot of kids experiencing the same exact thing, making new friends wasn’t hard. I was so excited for my high school friends to come home and meet these amazing people who I’d been hanging out with. A couple of weeks into school they came to visit and I had a wonderful time with everyone that I loved.

These are my best friends from high school and a few from college. They all helped me become the person I am today, and I will forever be thankful for them.
