Fun and Calm Week and Weekend

This week at ONU has been pretty good and surprisingly calm. Classes seemed to go by really fast, which is always a nice thing. All my exams and papers went pretty well. I got my midterm grade for my history class and was really surprised. I am actually doing way better in the class than I thought I was, and that is a happy feeling. Now since they end of the semester is coming up, more and more exams and papers are coming. I am trying to stay up beat and productive to finish the semester off strong. I am hoping that if I keep that thought in my mind, it will actually happen.

I started scheduling for next semester and I will actually have a nice "easy" schedule. It will be nice not taking 19 credit hours. I also picked up a minor! The minor is in social media and cannot wait to start classes for it.

Another exciting thing with school, in my opinion, is that through PRSSA I got a mentor in my field. The PRSSA at my school has a really unique mentor program where they pair students up with an ONU alumni. I have already talked to my mentor a few times and cannot wait till I get to met her in person! It is really nice to be able to ask someone who is in the real world and can give you advice. They are also able to help with looking over school work. I am so excited that I decided to join PRSSA.

We were both looking at different
Over the weekend, I went home for the night. There was supposed to be something going on Saturday, but it got cancelled last minute. I still went home though because it is nice to have that break from school.  I got a good meal and got caught up with everything that was going on with my family.

I cam back to school in time for the football game and Halloween. The game was at night and on Halloween. Do not worry, I did not see any goblins or ghost at the games. They all stayed away for a win for ONU. The game was cold but manageable. The rain held off till the end of the game which was nice. As always I sat with the band and enjoyed the game even more.

Today, Sunday, was Band-O-Rama. It is a concert the band puts on the features all the songs they played for halftime this year and other songs the band likes to play. I have gone to Band-O-Rama three times now and I always enjoy it. I also go to support my friends and boyfriend. This year since the band is celebrating 125 years, the show was a little more special. It is just neat to know that the band here at ONU has been around for 125 years.

This weekend was nice, fun and calm. I know school is about to get really crazy, but I am ready for it!


  1. Jessica,

    I am glad that your midterm exams and papers went well. In addition, it sounds like you had a good weekend. I did not attend the football game this past weekend, but I'm glad the polar bears won. I think it is really cool that you have the opportunity to get a mentor through PRSSA. It is always nice to have someone there to answer your questions along the way. As a P3, I am getting ready to meet my mentor for the White Coat Ceremony. It is so important to meet people and make connections at this point in our college career. Overall, it sounds like you had a good weekend. Even though college can get hectic, keep up the hard work!

  2. Jessica,

    Im glad your classes and assignments are going well for you. I feel like this is always the time of the year I start to get overwhelmed. I also have a social media minor! I love the classes I have had to take for it and am excited to see how it plays into my future career.
