I am a girl who loves to smile and tries to see the beauty in every situation. My family and friends mean the world to me and spending time with them always makes my happy. I can not believe I am already a senior at Longwood. After I graduate in May, I hope to work on my master's degree for School Psychology. Working with children has always been a dream of mine. The journey working towards accomplishing my goal has been exciting so far and I look forward to what the future holds.

28 days…

…until Graduation! OH MY GOODNESS!

School assignments are starting to slow down as graduation approaches, but I do have a few big tests to take before I am done.  One of my requirements is taking the Major Field Assessment Test (a.k.a. mfat) which is on April 26th! The mfat will test senior psychology majors on all the information they have learned from college.  Can you say YIKES! After the mfat and one more regular course test and two finals of  my undergraduate career, it will be easy sailing as graduation approaches.

One huge piece of advice I give to underclassmen is to take summer and/or winter break classes.  It has been wonderful only taking 12 credits during my senior year, but that doesn’t happen to everyone.  I planned out my schedule during freshman, sophomore, and junior year so I knew I would have a light senior year.  Don’t get my wrong classes are tough, but I am only taking four at a time.  There are so many other things a senior has to prepare for before graduation.  For example, I am applying to grad school as are many of my friends.  They are also applying for jobs and if you are applying for either one it is very time consuming.  It is almost as if we are taking another 3 credit class with all the time it takes to research your next step in life. :)

Well I had a productive day of working out, homework, blogging, and packing up things for my parents to take home tomorrow (they are visiting for my birthday – which is on Tuesday, the 19th!) It is time to go out and have dinner with friends! Have a relaxing weekend!

Yuck – not a fan of standardized tests!
