A Great Balancing Act

Classes, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

Have you ever felt really amped and excited to pick your classes before the new semester comes? I know it may sound a little nerdy, but I have to admit that I do. It’s a superb way to start over fresh, and learn new things, and meet new people. I tend to go a little overboard sometimes, and have wanted 6 or 7 classes in one semester! Luckily, my student Advisors are there to help talk some sense into me, for which I am thankful.

I remember finishing up my first semester, thinking about how well it went and, as the ending was becoming closer, the thoughts of a new semester started to come forth from “the mist.” I really wanted to take tons of classes and get things done sooner. WRONG!!

Looking back I can see how foolish I was for thinking that way. Sure, it’s always good to be a go-getter, but you need to have a little spare time in your schedule. I personally work every day from 11:30-4:30, and I have school scheduled around that. I am at the Bradenton Campus both before and after work, and its great! The only issue is when something unexpected comes up. I simply did not plan to have any trifles thrown my way, and I have learned my lesson.

One might think that they have fit as much as possible into their day, and it’s perfect. Before you know it the day is past, and the week along with it. It is nice to have a

very specific schedule. Once you’re in the groove you know exactly to do your homework for each class for instance (or at least that’s how I am.) However, I have learned this week actually… that it’s nice to have a little spare time.

You see, on my way to class early Monday morning, my vehicle broke down. Not a common occurrence, nor something that many of us think of when scheduling our classes. Because my schedule is so “perfectly arranged” not only did I miss classes, but also came in late for work. Had I had some spare time I probably would have been able to get to both class and work on time, but that is neither here nor there.

My only reason for sharing this story with you, is to simply help you plan ahead. When you think you have your schedule worked out perfectly at the beginning of the semester, just try to think about how you can improve upon it by planning ahead. Sometimes being an over achiever can really bite you.

What are your thoughts on planning classes and having a busy schedule? Not only is it stressful to manage week in and week out, but if something goes awry, nothing but catastrophe follows. I would love to hear your thoughts. Email me at studentblog@scf.edu.

Reading Material

Thoughts, Uncategorized, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

Well readers, I’ve gotten myself started now and I don’t think I can stop. Last post I mentioned a short story I read in an anthology about Scottish women and it really got me thinking about how much I wanted to share some of my favorite authors with you. How many of you like to read books as a hobby? Something to pass time, something you enjoy rather than something you do because classes require it of you.

Well, I am one of those people. I read like crazy. I would actually call myself addicted to reading, to be completely honest, because I will read over all other things. When it hits me that I need to read a story, it does not matter what papers need writing, what food I should be eating, what I should be working on, if I’m in that story I am not coming out until its done. Which is probably one of those cases of too much of a good thing, but we’re not going into that, haha. Instead, I’m going to tell you about a few of my favorite authors.

  • Jacqueline Carey: Jacqueline Carey writes some of the most amazing books I have ever read. They are so in-depth, I cannot even imagine the amount of research that this woman had to dedicate in order to produce such a detailed account of what is essentially ancient world history. Her writing style is pretty prolific, her prose is very thick with description and is very lengthy. Her books are not small… if you don’t want a lot to read, you do not want to read a book by Jacqueline Carey. But they take you everywhere! In the nine books I have read by her, I have vicariously traveled across the entirety of Europe, through the Middle East, gone into Russia, Mongolia, China, India, Egypt (and followed the Nile to its source), and even across oceans into South America. There’s so much, and the way that the religious aspects are interwoven into their very lives, the way that it is more than just a concept, it is a reality…  I could go on, but I wouldn’t stop. Jacqueline Carey is fantastic for anybody who is looking for something deep and heart wrenchingly good.
  • Lynn Flewelling: Lynn Flewelling also writes very large and in depth books, but hers are more on the intrigue side of the spectrum. Where Jacqueline Carey will include lots of romance, lots of religion, traveling, and world issues, Lynn Flewelling focuses more on the world issues, the politics, spys and war and many of the horrors that come with these things. But its not all bad! Because across the span of her books, she pulls in that romantic aspect (not a lot, really), but its just enough to lighten the mood ever so slightly. Its good for me, because her books are so meaningful that I need that breather, that chance to pull out of the darker aspects. Lynn Flewelling also does not write books for people who are not willing to dedicate a lot of time to them, however they are so worth it.
  • Tamora Pierce: Now I’m not sure how many of you might have actually heard of Tamora Pierce. The past two are possibilities as they are aimed towards an adult audience and I’m sure most of my readers are adults. Technically, Tamora Pierce is a young adult author. Either way though, everybody should read her. The world she’s created is so well-crafted, and her books also pull in that awesome religious aspect. In her world, some things are truly magical. There is political intrigue, but its not heavy, I suppose its kind of like a toned down version of the past two authors I’ve given you, except completely awesome in its own completely separate way. It has that intrigue, it has that mystical aspect, and the romance, but it not as intense and not as hard to read through. I’ve read at least fifteen books by her and I have to say that for each quartet, each duology, each trilogy she writes, she does a great job of tying them together. Because they’re all in the same realm, they’re all a part of each other’s history and future. Personally I am a HUGE fan of when stories are tied together this way. Jacqueline Carey does it as well. For those of you who want that awesome in depth fiction, want something that is really good but isn’t so much of a commitment, give Tamora Pierce a try.
  • Julia Quinn: I love romance novels. So it would make sense that I would love Julia Quinn. However, I really hope that some other people out there will give her a try, some of you who usually wouldn’t branch into the romance genre. I know it has quite a reputation, how you often see those books of some woman with clothing draping off of her shoulders and a man gripping her close, smoldering into her eyes, his shirt open and well, you get where I’m going with this. And you see these books and you think, “Oh that looks so cheesy, I do not want to read that.” Let me tell you, that is not Julia Quinn’s books! Whatever impression you have about romance novels, it probably doesn’t apply to her books. She ties all of her books together with common characters and with newspaper articles that are popular at the time. And while there is always that emotional issue that one of the characters has to conquer in order for them to come together in the end, the depth of the each of the characters really draws you in. Its beautiful, honestly, how she can craft such interesting and relate-able people over and over again for each of her stories. And in the end, they find love. And that’s really, for me, the best light reading that you can read. Its a happy story. Yes, there are parts that have so much emotion behind them I can’t help but tear up, but there is always a happy ending. Lets face it, life doesn’t really work out that way, and that’s why stories have always been such a great form of escape. So anybody who wants light reading, reading that will pull you in but won’t consume you, read a Julia Quinn book. She is amazing.

Wow, look at what I’ve done here! I’m sorry this post is so huge, and here I’ve got even more authors I would love to share. But I’ve already gone on far too much. Instead, drop us an email if you’re interested in hearing any more suggestions! You can reach me at studentblog@scf.edu, and please, do email me! Of all the things I’d love to hold a conversation about, it is books. Whether we are discussing new ones to explore or are making suggestions to each other, I really can’t get enough good stories in my life.

Clubs are fun

Campus Activities, Clubs, Uncategorized, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

If you’re like me, you have a few common interests with some of your friends. Wouldn’t it be nice to find more friends with similar views? The cool thing about the clubs here at SCF, is that you can do just that!

Whether you like chess, math, science, or even ping pong, there are people out there who share the same interest with you.  Have you ever considered joining a club to get to know more people like yourself? It’s an obvious idea, but surprisingly enough most people overlook it completely. No matter what you like to do on or off campus, I’m sure there is a club for you.

If you’re interested, check it out! All you need to do is go to the school website: www.SCF.edu  From there navigate to Campus Life, proceed to Student Life, and finally the Clubs section. There are quite a few clubs ranging from Art to Music to Politics. If you can’t find a club that is currently at SCF, there is a form to start one! Why don’t you give it a try? What have you got to lose?

Thinking about starting a club? Email me and let me know! I may be interested in joining!

Mid-Life (Complete)

Uncategorized No Comments »

I just read this awesome short story called “FriendsRevisited.com” by Carmen Reid, found in the short story anthology “Scottish Girls About Town.” I stumbled across this in the SCF Library Cafe Book Swap over in the Smoothie King, and I was intrigued. Anyways, the story really got me thinking.

Basically, the story was about a couple (mainly the woman, though) going through a bit of a mid-life crisis. Husband leaves wife, she’s dumped with their kids and the sort of boring routine life she never wanted, and she begins to slide into depression. But contact with a high-school friend spurs her into dedicating some more time and thought to the wants and needs she rarely paid attention to anymore. As we all know, I am but a young and fresh twenty year old. I’ve still got a good fifteen years or so until the likely hood of me hitting a plateau like this becomes inevitable. But I really wonder how it’ll all work out?

I’m a student. We’re all students. We’re preparing ourselves… for what? For a career? For life improvement? For time to discover more about ourselves? There are so many reasons to go to school, and I know a lot of people are returning to school long past the age that was previously considered school age.  And I’ll be completely honest; I’m studying, and I do have a degree in mind, but I actually have no clue what I want to do with that degree. Do I want it for the sidelines while I continue to study in search of a Library Science degree? Do I want to sell my services to the Chinese government in exchange for an over-seas job in one of the most beautiful country’s I’ve ever seen? Do I want to work for our government? Our schools? Do I want to be a mother? How do I make all of these decisions? How did my adult readers do it? Do you have any advice for us young ones, or are you still figuring things out for yourself?

I figure I will simply live life as it comes at me, but thinking about what happens after college is some pretty serious food for thought for all of us college students. If you’re feeling generous, please lend me some words of wisdom. Our email address is studentblog@scf.edu.

Studying

Classes, Thoughts, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

We’ve all got our tricks for studying. We have to, or how else would we make it through school?

Personally, I remember things best through repetition on my part. Re-writing, re-reading, talking about it, repeating as much as I can in order to drill as much of it into my brain as I can! But I know that there are probably a lot of people who do things completely differently. Its something classrooms have been trying harder and harder to address, the fact that everybody learns differently. Is it listening that does the trick for you, or watching? Does somebody need to draw or write out an example for it to make sense, or can you read it on the page and imagine it correctly in

your mind’s eye? I’m sure each and every person reading this has a different answer. Which is pretty great!

Here’s the catch with my personal studying habits: I don’t use them without a motivator, like a teacher who tracks your progress and takes grades. There are so many things I want to learn, mainly, so many languages I’d like to learn. As somebody who plans to move on as a Chinese major, you might have guess that I love languages. This past semester I took French and it was awesome! I’ll admit that I didn’t feel particularly challenged, but I think that is more because of the fast-pace of my Chinese classes. Either way, I had such a great time learning the language. The quirks on how to pronounce things, the grammar, everything, really. And there are other languages I’d really like to learn, such as Korean and Russian (Though, in order, my top choices are Chinese, Korean, and French). Having French as a course was like a dream come true because it was like taking a hobby, learning a language, and being motivated to actually complete it while simultaneously furthering my academic career! I only wish I could do this with the other languages I’m interested in. I have bought so many language text books, cds, phrase books, work books, and not a single one of them gets put to use because I don’t have that motivator to push me into action. This is another reason for why I’m so excited for my move up north. I’ll be in Chinese classes constantly, I’ll get to learn more, nay, I’ll have to learn more!

So whats your deal, audience? How do you keep your grades up, what sort of learning suits your needs best? Better yet, whats your favorite subject to study in? Feel free to drop an email to us any time at studentblog@scf.edu.

Gym

Campus Activities, Uncategorized, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

From what I’ve seen around campus, I know SCF has a lot of athletes here at the school. Does this mean that we also have a lot of people who go the gym? Any we can affectionately title “gym rats?”

I sure hope so! It’s a new year, and while I didn’t make the decision to be a healthier me because of it, I’m sure there are a lot of people who did. Which means a huge influx of gym go-ers. I proud of all of you guys! Heck, I’m proud of me. I haven’t been to a real gym in ages, mostly relying on Tae Kwon Do and maybe some exercise dvds to keep me in shape. Well I’m finally back. A friend of mine has gifted me with a spare gym membership from her family and wowza! We went together, first time weight lifting in months for her, years for me. We focused mostly on legs because she was leading the way and that’s what she wants, and oh my god, I nearly regret it! To be honest, I generally adore that post-work out muscle soreness that plagues me days after really pushing myself. But its been so long, I forgot how much it could honestly hurt! By the end of that day (I’ll admit, I don’t know if the forty minute walk and hour of TKD class helped me much), the entire lower half of my body hurt constantly. Walking? Ouch. Laying down? Augh. Minutely adjusting sitting position? Ooow! And the day after was hardly better.

But all of that muscle soreness aside, I don’t think I could possibly enforce how good I felt at the gym. I hadn’t had that work-out induced endorphin high in so long, it was amazing! I felt like I could conquer the world! I learned new techniques and revisited old ones and generally felt like the most capable person ever. I want to go as often as possible, I really hope I’ve got the willpower to work it around all of my other obligations.  Because when it really gets down to it, that’s what it takes. The willpower to get up early or stay up late, to pack a lunch so that you can spend your break doing something more productive, that sort of thing. And I really hope that not only I can stay with this sort of routine, but that all of SCF’s New Years Resolution gym visitors can stick with it as well. When something not only makes you feel that good and is also great for your health, how could you say no?

Do you visit the gym? Did you used to? Were you aware that the SCF Wellness Program offers free Yoga and other classes? Whats holding you back now, or whats pushing you forward? Personally, I have terrible knees. Potentially due to an injury that wasn’t properly cared for (though I won’t know this until I get to the fancy, expensive doctor who will tell me so). Lets do this exercise thing together, please share your plans or experiences with us in an email to studentblog@scf.edu.

What a Rush

Career, Thoughts, Work/Play Balance No Comments »

Wow, oh wow, that first week of classes went by so fast! There was just so much going on, getting to classes on time, getting the right textbooks (for the right prices!) and adding/dropping classes that did or didn’t suit. I can hardly believe its been over a week since we last talked. We’re all settled in for the semester now, the add/drop with refund option no long available, and now that the mini-vacation of Martin Luther King day has come and gone, I know that I’m finding a routine to work with.

There are just so many things to fit in. Class time, homework time, work time, taking care of myself, paying bills, trying to see friends and stay in touch with the family- I felt so ready for adult life and yet it still continues to surprise me! I’m extremely excited for moving out this summer and living on my own up in Tallahassee (wow, so far away!), but here I am struggling with things in my own. Its going to be a challenge, one that I’m sure I’ll have plenty of complaints about when the time comes. But I am worthy of any challenge life has planned for me! I’ll find a job and I’ll work and I’ll study, I’ll find the money to take care of my twenty-three year old car and my bad knees, and most importantly, I’ll keep up the good grades which will hopefully pave my way to my future career. This is what I have planned, at least, we will see how well it all unfurls.

All of this reminds me of stories family members have shared about their transition into adulthood. My aunt moved out immediately, and had to move back a year later. She tried out every major she could, went to more colleges than many people have heard of, traveled all over, and still managed to complete law school with a degree. Now she’s married with three kids, an involved mother who drives a van. I love to hear stories about how people got to where they are now. It helps my dreams of where I’ll end

Starting anew

Uncategorized No Comments »

Well, Congrats! The first day is over! Hopefully you found all of your classrooms without a problem, and are eager to get to learning new things, meeting new people, and starting off the new year right! I know that with work, and school, and more work, and homework, it can be hard and very trying at times, but fear not! You can do it, you are after all a SCF Manatee!

There are a few key habits you may want to look into. Here are the tips I have, that I use to help keep myself organized:

1. Write it down!

That’s “write”! Writing down everything-from the obvious, to the not so obvious- will help you better manage your life, and keep everything organized.

2. Lot’s of rest.

We all love our sleep, and getting more of the rest we crave not only helps keep us from being cranky, but it will also help keep you sharper for your classes. With the help of planning out your day, you can effectively schedule nap time! (How great would that be?)

3. Enjoy Life

As much as we all have going on in our lives, try and take a second to pause and be thankful you are able to do what a lot of people around the globe can’t. It may be stressful, but at least it’s an education. There are a lot of people in this world that would kill for the opportunity to learn a simple trade, let alone get a degree! So even when you’re stressing out over that exam, remember that you’ll do fine. You planned out several hours for studying, and scheduled a healthy 8 hours of sleep, and that you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to take the exam at all.

These are my methods for getting through a day. Yes, I know it’s difficult, but it’s something not only myself, but we all have to go through. Might as well do it with a positive outlook right?

What are your strategies for managing your day and staying sane? Email us your thoughts and strategies at  studentblogger@scf.edu.

Welcome to the next chapter in your life!

They’ve got the cutest little feet, and the back half of their body looks like an eel and there are these little spindly skin antler like things coming off of their face and I know its strange but I think its adorable.

Did anybody else have a fun vacation? Did anybody go to an aquarium or a theme park, or even fly out of state?

And now that classes are starting again, is everybody looking forward to the schedule they’ve pulled together? I am. I’m looking forward to pretty much all of my classes, and it’s even more exciting to think about the fact that after this semester… I’ll have completed my career at SCF. I have three semesters that I can look back

Spring Semester at SCF

Uncategorized No Comments »

We all know that time of year. Those jingling bells, lovely scented trees, and mistletoe. When the jolly season is over however, we must get back to our studies! That’s right, the Spring semester is right around the corner and we must all be prepared!

I know how much we just dread going back to school after a holiday break.  It was a well needed break, and now you are refreshed and ready to start the new semester! I just thought I would compile a small list of important dates that may help you stay focused, and start this semester off right!

1. Spring Fees are due the day you register. This may seem obvious, but believe me  it’s something easily forgotten.

Another thing to remember while we are discussing registering is, remember that registration is only for a limited time, and you only have until January 2nd to get all of your classes squared away! Hurry! Time isn’t going to wait!

2. January 5th is the last day of new student orientations for Spring 2012 classes starting January 9-14th!

3. January 6th is the first day that books may be charged against awarded Financial Aid in the SCF Store. Be sure to get your books as soon as possible, that way you are prepared for all of  your classes!

January 6th is also the last day for submission of residency documents for Spring term, and is also the deadline to submit Financial Aid Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal forms.

4. January 9th is the big day! Spring 2012 Classes begin. Don’t forget to go to bed early that way you get a great nights sleep, and have a hearty breakfast to get a jump on the day ahead.

5. Have fun,  and stay focused!  Yup, just as this tip says, have fun. It’s a new semester. A perfect opportunity to meet new people, and learn new things. The 2nd part of this tip is probably the most important one though. Stay focused. It’s easy to get distracted with everything that is going on right now. All these deadlines, fees, books, and life obstacles make getting an education difficult.  I recommend using your planner. It makes staying organized and getting ahead easier.

Right now is a very stressful time for all students. Just remember to take it a day at a time, and before you know it classes will be over. Hopefully these tips and tricks help you succeed not only this semester, but future ones to come.
