First Semester - Complete!
Well, I officially finished my first semester of graduate school—and what a whirlwind it was!
Initially it was easy to balance school and work, but then I started to make friends and adding in a social life on top of my other responsibilities was challenging. Somehow I managed to finish, though, and that’s all that matters.
Overall, I’m SO happy with the choices I’ve made. I love Bank Street, I love going into NYC by myself (even if the commute is exhausting), and I love all of the field trips that I was able to experience. I visited: The Roerich Museum, Brooklyn Children’s Museum, Frick Collection, American Museum of Natural History, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Museum of Chinese in America. All of them were amazing.
I’m still missing one of my grades, but I finished on a pretty strong note with an A in my School/Museum Curriculum course and a B in my Child Development course (which kicked my butt, so I’m pretty content with that). (Update 2/2014: My missing grade was a B+, phew!)
I will update soon to share what my second semester entails, but for now…I’m on break! :)
