Halfway mark At Geneseo


      Halfway Mark At Geneseo

My experiences here at Geneseo have been going quite well and going pretty much as I expected. I am thrilled  I chose to go to school here. It is crazy to think that my first college semester is already half over, but as expected, time flies. When I first got here, I didn’t know many people, but as time passed, I started to make friends and meet new people. 

In my classes, (most of my classes) are very doable, although two of them are getting intense. These classes include my accounting and my microeconomics because the content is challenging, and I have to start to study harder for the exams, which I am not used to doing. Although, the workload is pretty fair. Especially with all of the free time I have here. I have time to get all of my work done on Thursday then I don’t have any work to do over the weekend, which is nice. But there is lots of room for improvement. This is because I could always put more effort into my classwork. Also, Increasing my study time will always be positive.

 My Theater Therapy for Veterans class is going pretty well so far. I am enjoying the content too. I would have to say this class is justly easy as long as you put in the effort. The workload in this class is small as long as you read and record your thoughts in our journals. It is only the halfway mark, but I am confident  I will be successful in this course. I really enjoy the content in this class because I find it is different from all the other classes I have had. I say this because learning all about veterans from a veteran is extraordinary. It makes it easier to learn about a topic from someone who lived it. Also, many of the readings that we go through are interesting. It is cool to learn about all of this, although I can’t say I can connect or relate to it. It is also interesting that every veteran has a unique story because everyone’s experience differs. Then after war, everyone’s experiences make them feel different ways. Some veterans might have worse PTSD than others.

Lastly, by the end of the semester, I hope to be in a similar spot that I am in now, which is showing up to all of the classes and keeping my grade high and all of my work on time. However, I want to change some of my habits. These habits include my study habits. I want to study more, which would make my test scores higher and my class works higher quality. I would also like to go out of my comfort zone and seek help when I need it. If I take these steps and change these habits, I will be in a great spot by the end of the semester. A similar spot that I am in now. 

Beggings at geneseo

Hello, I am Tommy Murray. I am currently a freshman at Suny Geneseo, and so far, I am cheerful here. I enjoy mostly everything. I feel like I am starting to like Geneseo more than my hometown, Greece, NY. As I move through my first weeks here at Geneseo, I enjoy everything, although it is much, much different than high school; however, this is a good thing. During the first weeks, the workload was much more than it was in high school, but I also had more free time on my hands to handle it. I feel like the education here is much better than the one I received in Greece. As long as I stay caught up with my workload, I will be fine with the academic portion of college.

As far as my courses go, I feel like they are really fair, and as long as I manage my time wisely, I will succeed. Through the first three weeks, I feel most of my classes are easy except for my accounting. I only say this because the homework is confusing, and it is a heavy workload. Even so, I will be okay because I can always seek help from professors during their office hours or by easily reaching out to them and asking questions. 

Now for this Theater Therapy For Veterans class, I have a few expectations that I hope to fulfill. At the beginning of the Semester, I learned that this class would help me improve my writing skills. It will be great for me because I only use one writing style right now. This is the area where I would like to improve because there are many different writing styles. As the year goes on, I am excited to learn various things in this course, especially new writing styles. If I improve how I write, that will help me throughout college and life. Writing is such an important skill to be good at, and there’s actually a lot that goes into it. I also really like this class because last week, we were talking about how many of us in the class are victims of using filler words too often. I am one of these victims.
