This past semester has given me a lot to think about. I am writing this, having just submitted my final assignment of junior year. Overall, I would say that this year was successful. I managed to do well in my classes, become an officer in the German Club, continue my job in the library, and work as a volunteer ESL tutor. (I was actually promoted to VP of the German Club a couple of days ago.)
I look forward to my senior year, but I know that I really have to be on top of everything. I should even start looking for potential job openings soon! However, I have a lot to do before that. I am taking two online courses through OU this summer. (I have never taken an online course, so I am interested in how they are taught.) I am also studying abroad in Israel during the month of July. I am very excited to go back to Israel. My mother’s brother and his family lives in Israel, and it has been three years since I have visited them. Also, the courses that I am taking will be extremely interesting. One course is about Arab-Israeli history. The other is about radical Islam in the Middle East. (I am also pleased that both courses are relevant to my future career plans.)
Junior year was a great one and I cannot wait to see what the summer, fall, and spring semesters of senior year bring.
