This might be cliche but I made it through my first year! I have grown a lot over the past few months. I learned that studying the way I did in high school is not good enough. The biggest thing that I learned about studying is that you can never start too early. I also learned that if I am smart I can manage my time. There were only a few times where I felt rushed. I am also proud that I was able to get 7-8 hours of sleep every night. There are no glamourous summer jobs or research opportunities ahead for me. I am hoping to get involved in research next summer. This summer I am going to start looking into medical school requirements and my future in general. One of my roommates moved out today and it made me realize that the semester really is over. I think I made the right choice with choosing Ohio State. I cannot imagine my first year of college happening anywhere else. Go bucks!
I volunteered at the Hunger Run 5K this semester as part of my volunteer requirements. In high school I ran cross country and we would help out with 5Ks so volunteering at this type of event was not out of my element. I really enjoyed volunteering at this 5K because it was the first one for this group. The 5K was organized by two students at Ohio State who want to help fight hunger. The money raised went to support Neighborhood Services Inc.. One dollar raised provides four meals to those in need. This 5K raised enough money for about 20,000 meals! I hope to be able to be a part of next year as well.
