So I’ve gotten a comment which I feel I can’t properly reply in more comments. So here we go.
Mr. Jackson: “I’m also curious about what you took away from seeing what you could of the ‘post secondary world’ through Jamie’s sisters, as well as your own observations for the day. What are you excited about for yourself, looking a few years ahead: are there aspects of campus life (or post secondary in general) that you’re curious/excited/apprehensive about? What prompted these thoughts for you, either on the trip, or before?” -SFU Exploration
After seeing the ‘post secondary world’, I’ve taken away a lot about the life of the student, I guess you could say. I always thought that once I enter that world, my life will basically become new. I’ll stop dancing, spend all my time in the library doing work, stuff like that. Seeing how universities are run changes that idea. I’ll probably always take advantage of the outdoors or study areas over the library and also use areas like the pool and gym for exercise on campus.
Looking ahead, and realizing that this could be me in a few years, definitely provokes new emotions. As I said, I’ve always planned on stopping dance once I graduate, however I’m already on year 11 of 13 then. It makes me sad to think that in three years I won’t be dancing however I’m worried I won’t have enough time. I’m excited about all the clubs and new experiences I’ll find myself encountering. I’m curious about how much time I am going to have and how busy I’ll be. I’m going to need to have a job, get my homework done and keep fit, while still have time for myself. I’m used to having a lot on my plate with the schedule I have now, but how much stuff would be too much, how much would be too little?
These thoughts are sparked by conversations from Katie about how you can spend a whole night doing homework as well as how many people don’t take classes at my studio after graduation. It is started from my own perception of my time as well as my families. My mom already thinks I have too much on my plate; however, if I take on any less, I’ll find myself bored in the calm months.
So that’s a little more information to follow my SFU post. Thanks for the comment!
