SEMESTER RECAP – A ROLLERCOASTER OF FUN, HIGH ENERGY (AND OCCASIONAL STRESS!)November 18, 2016
This semester has just been flying by over these past couple months. We have had a couple of wonderful and enjoyable holidays, some less than delightful midterms, and a handful of assignments. As we head back into university from the Remembrance Day weekend, I think it would be a good time to take a look back, as well as to look forward to the rest of the semester.
So far, this semester has been a rollercoaster of fun, high energy, and occasionally stressful times. As the school year started up, I had the opportunity to meet a lot of new students, both in and out of residence. The new group of students that I had the chance to meet have been a truly excellent group of people, full of energy and enthusiasm. September came and went, and the period of relative relaxation had ended.
As we headed into October, more due dates continued to pop up, and work on assignments had finally begun. The Thanksgiving weekend provided a wonderful excuse to relax, eat, and take a break from the assignments. Midterm season also arrived, and many students could be found throughout the school furiously studying for the last couple minutes before their exams. Finally, we arrived at Halloween weekend, and students could once again unwind, and relax from their studying. I found myself at Comic con every day of the weekend, and on Halloween day, students got to partake in a costume contest, as well as a pumpkin carving contest here at Booth.
This past weekend in November, we just had our Remembrance Day weekend, where students attended ceremonies all across the city to remember the soldiers who gave their lives for our freedom. In that same weekend, Winnipeg had its Santa Claus parade, which a couple of the students from Booth University College had the opportunity to take part in. Now we are all down to our last couple assignments, and Christmas break is right around the corner. Christmas music can be heard playing in residence as students complete their final papers. The posters have gone up around the school, signalling that the annual Booth Christmas Banquet is only a few weeks away! I for one, am definitely looking forward to the Christmas banquet, and am hoping to see all of my fellow students in attendance.
That’s all from me today, I have a couple of assignments to go and complete. Keep the Christmas music playing, sit back and enjoy a cup of hot cocoa, and I hope to see you all at the Christmas banquet!
