College has provided me with some of the best years of my life. All of the trials and tribulations that I have encountered as helped mold me into the person that I am today. Ten things that I have learned while in college includes how to be myself, time management, discipline, networking techniques, how to budget money, who my real friends are, who I am and who I am not, independence, how to dream, and how to live my life to the fullest. While being in college it has opened up a new world for me and allowed me to view things from a totally different perspective than what I had before. Within my first year at South Alabama I realized that not only will you learn new things inside of the classroom, but outside of class as well. Everything that I have experienced in college has shown me a piece of the real world and it was enough to teach me to dream of bigger and better possibilities for myself.

During the winter in Mobile, the weather can be quite unpredictable. Some days we will have nice warm weather with a little cool breeze and some days it can get freezing cold. Depending on the weather, I enjoy going to bonfires. A couple of my friends and I will gather together, get a fire going while enjoying movies and marshmallows. We have an enjoyable time especially when the weather is just right. On the days where it's freezing cold, I enjoy having movie night. Here at South, Jaguar Productions hosts many movie nights on campus in our Student Center ballroom. This week's movie was Scout's Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. Jaguar Productions does a great job of presenting fun, interesting movies for us! It's a great time for the Jags to gather and enjoy a great movie!

Like most people, every New Year I have at least two New Year's resolutions that I never stick with. I come up with plans to conquer these resolutions and everything goes smoothly for the first couple of weeks but after awhile everything seems to go down hill. This year, I made a promise to myself to not make any resolutions but just try my best to become an overall better person. One aspect of myself that I have plans to improve on is procrastination. There are times where I will wait until the very last minute to complete an assignment, simply because I feel as if I do my best work when I'm pressed for time. However, I know that this is a bad characteristic to possess in the real world having a real world job. As graduation approaches in May, plan " kill procrastination" is in full effect!

Finals exams are approaching fast and my first thought is, "Yes, I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!" With graduation approaching, this semester has been pretty stressful. Juggling classes, study time, and work can be a bit overwhelming at times but nothing worth having comes easy! Preparing for final exams this semester will consist of lots of coffee along with long nights and early mornings! My professors have already provided us with study guides so hopefully studying won't be too stressful. I'm willing to do whatever it takes to finish the semester out strong so I can fully enjoy Christmas Break back in my hometown!
