Progressing in College

Hey again, hopefully long time readers.

I’m writing again to give updates on my college experience. I’m still in my first semester of college and things have been improving slowly, but steadily. Many of the same problems I voiced about in my first blog are still present, like my classes not being too interesting. Trying to get some gen-Ed’s done isn’t exactly the most exciting part of being a college student. However, I’m meeting and interacting with more and more people. From my clubs, classes, and sports, I’m getting to meet so many wonderful people. For extra-curricular activities, I’m part of the Geneseo Track team, Club Volleyball, Chamber Singers, National Parks Club, just joined a intramural Floor hockey team, and am still trying to join the Jazz band. I did get some conflicting advice from some people with decently respected opinions, one an old friend from home telling me to be part of everything in college so I can experience everything. The other, the head coach of the track team at Geneseo, tells me to take on too many things so the quality of what I need to do doesn’t falter. What do you guys think I should do? I really want to be part of everything!

Although, one thing that hasn’t really set in yet is how close the end of this semester really is. It feels like it’s been so short! I’m very unsure on how I should feel about this. I’m excited mostly for even the hope to get into the Musical Theatre Major. When I came into college, I was undeclared, but I knew what I really wanted to do, being musical theatre. And Suny Geneseo, having the exact version of the major I wanted, I need to make sure I got in. I completed my auditions for the major this past Friday. The audition’s qualifications were to sing two contrasting musical theatre songs, two contrasting monologues, and one dance video. I did the best I could one them, and I can’t wait to hear how I did on them. I still marvel at the idea of being in those classes, classes that allow me to learn how to be the best performer. I just know that being in the major will solve most of my discontent with my college experience so far!
