Four Years

Four Years spent at Hofstra University, diligently working though classes, living out my college experience with friends, clubs/activities and the required horrible food. (okay Lackman wasn’t that bad, but it was pretty expensive) I started my last semester with the intention of making it my best, and getting the most out of the time I had left. I also intended to blog more, and we all know how well that turned out…

But I took 15 credits, including a thesis project for one last honors college requirement, and a journalism class to see how the “other side” wrote. Even though I was the only senior in the class, it was still a rewarding experience. I have a flair for journalism and I kind of regret not taking more classes. My GPA this semester is the highest I’ve ever gotten, with 3 A’s and two A- ‘s.

Outside of the classroom, I strove to live my life to the fullest. I worked part time, assembling a book of world records. I also worked to get a discussion group started for gay and spiritual topics  and restarted the honors college blog (huhc.wordpress.com) I also got closer to friends I had met the semester before, close enough that saying good bye was not fun. I’m glad we can stay in touch thanks to the internet… 

It turned out I saved the best for last as this was easily my best semester ever. I’m sad school is over; I really did love it.

2010 Grades.

I has them.

That History class in the last row actually counts for my English Major. It was a fun class, studying the Reformation and Counter Reformation. History of the Christian Churches, part 2. The professor wished I wasn’t graduating in the spring or I could take the part 1 next fall. Personally, I don’t know if learning about the orthodox split and the early church before that could be as interesting as learning about Luther and everyone after him. I did a presentation on the Born Again Movement where I got to research the modern mega-churches, Billy Graham and Focus on the Family. I got to show clips from Jesus Camp. Scared my class.

Next semester I’m going to take more English Classes. I have two empty spaces that are going to be filled with Intro Journalism, so I get some experience writing hard news. I don’t really enjoy that kind of writing, but I’m hoping to learn some skills in case I need to report hard news for a job. Also taking another German class. The grammar hasn’t quite stuck yet and I’m making stupid mistakes.

New Year and still directionless…

My Fall 2009 Grades came in.

At the beginning of the semester, I really wanted to get a better GPA than I had my first two years (I hadn’t achieved anything higher than a 3.66) I told Dean Donahue that I was shooting for a 3.75 and he replied that was very ambitious of me. I knew it would be a challenge because I was taking 6 classes instead of 5, but I buckled down for the most part and aimed for the stars.

The end result: My best semester yet. The GPA is a 3.78  which brings me up to a 3.63 cumaltive.
