2nd Semester Junior???

Where has the time gone?!?
It feels like just yesterday I was starting my first semester as a freshman! But, on Monday, Jan. 24th, I start my second semester as a Junior! Yikes!
Classes should be interesting. All of my classes will be for human services except for one art class that will teach me how to use art as an alternative form of communication and in a therapeutic way.
I also start my first (of three) internships that need to be completed for my degree. This semester I will be working with a social worker at a nursing home that is about half an hour away from school. I'm really excited to be working with the elderly, as I will also have the chance to work with the activities coordinator of the facility on some days. I will be spending my Wednesdays and maybe some mornings on Thursdays :-). I'm very excited about this internship and hope that I get to learn a lot!! (If any of you want to check it out, it's called Elant Nursing home, in Wappingers Falls.)
Other than that, I'm excited to get back to my job at school; I miss the people I work with a whole bunch!
Big things coming in the following months:
1)The Saratoga Dance Festival is the 2nd to last weekend in Feb. !!!!
2)My boyfriend, Joe, and I will celebrate our 1 year anniversary on March 5th :-)
3)I TURN 21 ON MARCH 9TH!! Wooooo!!!! haha
4)I'm attempting to plan my first ever spring break trip, so that should be interesting!

I'll be sure to keep everyone posted as the semester goes on, but I don't want to make any promises about how soon those updates will be!

Love you all <3

You're not quite in the home stretch, but you're getting close. Keep working hard; you're doing great so far!
