THE FIRST MONTH OF COLLEGE... | UNL

By Kalina Popova - Sunday, September 30, 2018

Hello hello! Kalina here today. It's been a hot minute but I am so excited to be back with a new post. To be honest, college has had its good and bad times but I wanted to give you all a recap of what's happened so far.

I moved into college a little over a month ago and went through sorority recruitment - and it was not at all like I imagined it would be. The process itself was fairly casual which I loved but it was stressful getting dropped with no explanation. That being said, recruitment week went pretty well and I ended up joining Tri Delta. 

After recruitment week ended, classes started. As a Public Relations major, I am in many introductory Journalism classes. This is something I struggled with quite a bit because although I am a PR major, I am not interested in becoming a publicist or anything particularly journalism related. However, I am keeping an open mind because I understand that not all gen-ed classes are tailored to one's exact interests and I also believe that I am in some interesting classes I would have never otherwise taken. I've shared this before but my ultimate goal is to work within the creative department of a fashion, beauty, or lifestyle brand so I hope to incorporate classes into my three years at UNL that will be beneficial for my future career.

Perhaps the strangest thing for me was that I actually loved college when I first came and then experienced a dip in my excitement about being in Nebraska later on. In a weird way, I'm glad I went through a rough time as it made me realize that it's okay to not always put on a happy face just because that's what people expect. I took time for myself and slowly started feeling more content. 

Hands down the best part of my college experience so far has been the people I have met. I could not be more thankful because they are honestly THE BEST. I have the best roommates and floor mates (aka my favorite people ever) I could ask for and amazing friends I have met through classes and just randomly.

Overall, college has been a learning experience beyond my classes. As cliche as this will sound, I have learned so much about myself through the ups and downs. I know we say this all the time, but I really do want to create more content on here and will do my best to make it happen! I hope you all are having an amazing day ♡




xoxo
