Back to School

I believe Adam Sandler puts it best in ‘Billy Madison,’ “Back to school. Back to school, to prove to Dad that I'm not a fool. I got my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight. Ohhhh, back to school. Back to school. Back to school. Well, here goes nothing.”

Just like Sandler, well not exactly, August 30th marked the first day of the 2010-2011 school year – my last year at the University of Southern Maine. EEEEK!! I can’t believe it’s here already. I feel like I’m still in high school sometimes, but I guess I’m not.

I don’t want to jinx anything, but I’m super excited about my classes this semester. And when I say super, I mean SUPER! It’s definitely going to be a lot of work, but if my upcoming assignments are as fun and challenging as I think they’ll be, it’ll be worth it. Just for kicks – here’s a little preview: planning the school’s first mud run, senior media project (my group is tackling a blog thanks to me), interviews with sports industry big wigs, a senior portfolio, radio show and social media project.

I’m also a Peer Advisor this year which I’m really excited about. While I haven’t always enjoyed my time in college (freshman year seriously sucked), I do feel like I can be of help to struggling students and/or incoming students. It will be a great opportunity to give back before I leave the good ole US of M.

And now to begin the grad school application process…(Gonna be long and intensive, but I’m so pumped.)
