If you’re an art student, you probably already know about this…
The student art gallery is opening next Friday!
Today was the last day to submit your pieces, but for anybody who is only interested in looking, have no fears, your time has not past. I submitted three pieces of my own and while doing so I got a glimpse at some of the fantastic things made by SCF students! I really hope everybody takes the time to check out the artwork that was submitted. There were some fabulous paintings and pencil drawings, lovely photography, and I was really blown away by the 3D pieces!!
If you’re interested in checking this out (which you really, really should be), the art gallery is connected to the Neel Performing Arts Center, on the side next to the Social Studies building. If you need any more help finding the lovely art gallery, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meanwhile, I have to skidaddle and work on my history paper. @__@ Time really flies, I can’t believe there’s pretty much a month left until the semester is over!!
Hello All! I apologize for not writing at all until now. This week has been extremely busy for me. I actually had to take a day off of work just so I could get caught up on my school work!
Overall I am doing well. Last week I told you guys I would keep you posted on my Chemistry exam. I ended up getting an 81%, which wasn’t bad but not exactly what I was hoping for. I am doing my best to live every day to the fullest, and enjoy everything about every day. Afterall, you aren’t here for a long time, you’re here for a good time! (George Strait song is playing right now, and it’s my favorite!)
In my ENC 1102 class, we have been assigned to write a Literary Analysis for one of the short stories we’ve read during class. As I’m sure you guessed, I picked an “Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.” (If you follow my blog I mentioned awhile back how much I loved that story!!) This literary analysis has been one of the most challenging assignments I’ve ever had to do.. Actually THE hardest. I’ve never had to do anything close to this before and it has really opened my mind up to trying to learn new ways of reading..
You see, (for me at least) I have settled into this “groove” that hasn’t changed or needed to change up until now.. I was so used to reading the story and getting it done and over with, that I never really analyzed the literature before. (Yes, I know you are meant to do that in grade school, but I never did it to the extent that I am now.) That is one of the beautifully frustrating parts I have been dealing with. It is almost bitter sweet… I am struggling, but it is almost nice to struggle. (No, I’m not trying to be cocky.) I feel like the best lessons learned are the ones you struggle to understand.. Sort of like when you LOSE, you learn from it more than if you WIN. It’s the same thing with me. I like winning, don’t get me wrong, but every now and then it is sobering to realize that you’ve lost.. What’s more is since you’ve lost you now need to get up and wipe the dust off, and learn what you did incorrectly. This is something that admittedly I have not done too much of over the course of the past few years. I have done fairly well in all of my classes.
So, what do you like the most about learning? email me at email@example.com and let me know!
