I also learned that school isn’t everything. It’s not necessary for me to spend 24 hours in school, take an exam, and blow off school for the next few days, which is what I was doing during the fall semester. In the spring semester, I learned more about how to balance my time in Health 200 and took advantage of when I knew I would be at my most focused state by studying during that time. For me, that happens to be early in the morning. I would set my alarm early, wake up early, and go to bed early to get enough sleep. I also worked to balance school with exploring Atlanta and spending time with my friends – including having a movie night or getting ice cream. (I love Jeni’s ice cream!)
Health 100 and Health 200 really had an impact on me. In my Biology and Chemistry classes, I was learning more about the world around me, but Health 100 and Health 200 taught me more about myself, which I think is just as important, if not more important. By learning more about myself, I’m able to better understand other information and learn the things I’m supposed to throughout my college career. Granted, I’m not perfect. There are still things I need to improve on and there are different ways for me to grow as far as learning about myself and managing my time better. But I think I definitely have grown a lot since the fall semester and I look forward to what else I can do over the next three years of college and beyond. Thank you Health 100 and 200 for making that possible for me!
