Journal 1 Week 1
After coming back from my first weekend at WNMU, I can tell it was a week full of surprises, got to meet new people. Having my new schedule, and starting with my right foot.

I’m a very optimistic when it comes to starting a new semester, I want to give it all my best. After having a five week break, I got the time to enjoy my family back at home, resting but still running so that I could get back in shape.

I am very excited about this new semester and look forward on getting good grades and learning new information.
