This semester has sped by so quickly that I can't believe midterms have already started. Since being back at school, it's been a complete whirlwind, mostly because I'm currently involved in the pharmacy application process, which has proven to be a time management challenge on top of my other coursework. Despite this, I'm really enjoying all of my courses this semester because it's the first semester that I've been able to explore outside the realm of science classes. I finished up a majority of my science requirements last year, so now I have a bit more freedom in my schedule, and it's been an exciting to try out courses outside of my comfort zone. Beyond my academic life, I've managed to stay busy with all kinds of activities. I've been attending as many of the Syracuse Football games as I can, and I've also made it to a few soccer games. When Homecoming Weekend came around, I had a blast seeing all of my friends who have since graduated. Two weekends ago, I spent the night at a "sisterhood retreat" with my sorority at a lake house about an hour away. The next day when we got back, a group of my friends and I attended the Amy Schumer comedy show at the On Center.

I'm really looking forward to a few things that I know are coming up soon as well! This weekend, my sorority is putting on our main Fall Philanthropy called "Wing It". It's a wing eating contest, and all the money we raise goes to the charity we support called CASA. I also have plans to go apple and pumpkin picking in a few weekends! Fall is my favorite time of year, and it's exciting to see the leaves on campus starting to change! In all, it's been a really fantastic start to the year, and I can't wait to see what the rest of the semester holds!
