Term 1

As the end of my first term of CreComm approaches I think I'm starting to lose my mind.
I've overcome my daily Redbull addiction recently,
But I've sacrificed the luxery of sleep.
I've developed a nice sore back from hunching over computers for hours on end
And I've lost about 30 dollars worth of pens in the past couple months.
My diet has become coffee, bagels, chicken fingers, and the amazing hot dogs from the stand outside the college.
But this has been the most insanely busy, most difficult, and best term ever.
I've met the most amazing people in the past few months and I'll be a section twoer for life.

My first day of CreComm I put my coffee down in student services and spilled half of it... such an embarassing way to start my year.
Then I walked up to my first class in the computer lab... and spilled the rest of the coffee all over the counter and floor. Great first impression!

I've experienced things I never thought I would since I started CreComm.
I've directed a TV show - one of my biggest dreams! I would love a career in TV..
I've been throw out on the streets and had to approach random people to get interviews. Scariest day ever.
I'll have my own radio show in less than a week!
I've been to city council, an election party, and a rememberance day ceremony for the first time.
And I've had my first published article. 
CreComm has granted me so many opportunities that I wouldn't have with out it, and after not being sure when or if I would go back to school after leaving UofW last winter, I am so grateful I gave it a chance.

I feel everyone's pain from the ridiculous projects and deadlines this week but it has been hillarious seeing everyone scramble at the same time.

As soon as anyone hears the word "stressed", "test", "due", or "dropbox" people FREAK OUT. Myself included. For the first time in my life I've actually had to use my agenda and I'm still just crossing my fingers that I haven't forgotten anything important.

At the beginning of the year I bought a little half inch binder for each of my subjects and last night I ran into this problem

It doesn't all fit!!!

There are two types of students come exam time, the ones who have organized, highlighted, and dog eared important notes. They have done all assignments in advance. Then there's the rest of us. The scramblers, the all-nighters, and the panickers.

Good luck everyone in finishing up this term, I wouldn't have done it with anyone else. Try to stay calm, only one more day left.

Then sleep aaaaall day saturday. We deserve a break!

Post study cab sav... an absolute must!
