Starting Freshmen Year
I am really excited to begin my college experience at the University of Minnesota. So far it hasn’t been the easiest adjustment. Coming from a small town with a population of 1,500 is definitely a big step for me. It seems as though most of the people that attend school here come from a more urban setting than me (which is not surprising) so most people already know or have friends that go to school here but I didn’t know anyone. Luckily I get a long with my roommate really well and I have started to make a lot of good friends and I plan to make many more as the year continues on.
So far my interests academically are art and science. These two subjects are totally opposite so it makes it harder to narrow many things down. Even though I am interested in the sciences, I am terrible at math, making it hard to pursue pretty much any science major. As of right now I am undecided to what major I would like to pursue. It’s very frustrating to me at times because it seems as though everyone around me knows exactly what they want to do with the rest of their lives already. I think that If I at least knew what kind of major that I wanted to have, I would feel a lot more comfortable. Even though everyone says that it is okay to be undecided, I wish that I wasn’t undecided because it would make things a lot easier and less stressful for me.
