RMU has been amazing!
My time here at RMU has been amazing, but also very challenging. As time progresses my classes get a little bit harder, more work is required, and the teachers expect more out of you. Quarters are also going by really fast. Just yesterday it was my first day in college, now Iím almost a year in of being a college student. I thought college would be a lot harder than it is at the moment, but maybe I shouldnít speak to soon.
I am in the surgical tech program and itís not the easiest of programs. I have been through a lot with this class to the point where I have wanted to give up. My number one motivation is my mom. She didnít pay all this money for me to just give up. She stresses a lot for me, but at least she knows that I am trying my best.
My next motivation is track. I canít give up if I want to still be on my track team. Without track I wouldnít even be at this school. Track motivates me to be a student athlete. Student athletes are people who do exceedingly in class as well as in their sports.
My last motivation is that my job helps people. Without surgical tech, a lot of people would be out of luck. Even though this is not my number one choice as a major, I still like the thought of helping people and working in a hospital. Maybe after I spend some time doing this job I will learn to love it more.
Overall my time at RMU has been great. Itís a new experience for someone fresh out of high school. I hope I can say the same things when I graduate, which I canít wait for that to happen. The best advice I can give to a high school student is to just try your best. Thatís what I tell myself everyday when I have to wake up at 3 every morning.

What will summer be like this year? I think this summer will finally be different. In different I mean more fun then it was the years before. In the past years I've just stayed at home and I really haven't done anything. But this year will definitely be different.
Last summer I was in high school, now I'm in my sophomore year of college. I feel like I now have more opportunities to do things. I'm definitely trying to go to Six Flags as many times as I can this year. I'm also going to go to the beach and swim and just hang out. While I'm just hanging out I'm going to be conditioning for my second year of track.
All I know is that this will be a very eventful summer. I have friends from college to hang with and even friends coming home from school. No matter whom I hang with I know I'm going to have fun. But while I'm having fun I'm going to be looking for a summer job!

Life Without Track
Well as some of you may know, the womenís Track and Field season is over, unless you are going to nationals. I am not going to nationals this year, but Iím hoping Iíll be there next year. In order for me to get there Iím not going to be a lump on a log and just sit around all summer. Some friends and I are actually going to work out and condition over the summer. Iím actually excited about that because I canít wait to get into better shape and be better prepared for next season, next year. The fact that I have someone by my side while getting in shape makes everything easier. Now that I am off track, I am going to be way more focused on school and try to get a job and maybe even play another sport; but come January, Iím going to be better than ever and more than ready to make that trip down to nationals.
