Well I got all of my grades back for summer semester, and I’m happy with how I did, but now I’m even more stressed about the job hunt than ever. I had an interview on Monday, on the phone with an NFL team, haven’t heard back about it yet, but he said I would hear …
The month of July flew by, I think a lot of it is because I was doing school work and enjoying New York City. I submitted my last final on Saturday night (24 hours early, thank you very much), and it’s odd now, because I feel like I should still be doing homework. I’ve been …
Sorry my post is late, the beginning of the week got away from me and I was trying to get ahead on my assignments for the week. I’m heading back to Rochester next week to help with a project for a few days. Still no word from jobs here in the city, but I keep …
So week 5 was a bit stressful, I had a bunch of papers due and not very much free time to do so because of working. I knew summer classes were going to be a lot, but I took on too much with work, I’m just glad I survived and hopefully my grades reflect the amount of work I did put in, along with the 3 all-nighters I pulled just to get all my work done throughout the 5 weeks.
Week 4, I’m going crazy. Had to pull an all nighter to get all of my homework done, working 46 hours wasn’t a great choice, but I got to look at the pluses, money for NYC. My friend has a sublet from July 1st to August 1st, so this girl is going to spend a month in NYC, and hopefully if I can get a full time position, I will be staying. I’ve already started looking for jobs, even though I’ve been looking for well over a year, I’m going into over drive. I’m super excited to see my friends and old roommates and just be back in New York, even though it may not be permanent.
So I apologize for being a slacker when it comes to updating my blog, I’m going to try to go back and fill you all in, on the last couple weeks, so I will be posting a couple of blogs in a row. Week 3, summer session is flying by, it’s crazy. I’m really loving one of my classes, and the other one, the professor is clearly new to this online teaching thing, so they’re a bit disorganized and that sort of bugs me. I also agreed to work a lot of hours, which is great in terms of money, but doesn’t leave a lot of time left for homework or sleep.
So it’s on to the second week of summer classes, and needless to say it’s intense! It’s so hard to pack 15 weeks of material into 5 weeks, I’m afraid I’m going to miss something, and it’s hard to keep up with everything. All of my friends are enjoying vacation and being home, or hanging out in nice places, and I’m stuck home doing homework like a mad women.
So now that I’m nearly done with my classes for this semester, I sit here thinking about the last year I’ve had. It seems like I left New York City way more than 4 months ago, I miss it so much. I miss working in the sports industry. I miss being in a big city. I miss hanging out with some of the most amazing people I know, and meeting new people who love the sports industry as well. This semester dragged on and went so fast all at the same time. I worked my behind off on my classes this semester, so I hope my grades reflect all of the hard work I put in.
