I haven’t blogged for a while, I realized earlier today while talking to one of my teachers. I have just been so incredibly busy with school, there is so much work to be done!
I can not believe that I am in my 7th month at SAIT. It is incredibly crazy and surreal to think about. I was hanging out with a few friends from my program after class and one of them said “when I think back to our very first class, it seems like so long ago but then the year seems to have gone so fast at the same time.” That is exactly how I feel. I cannot believe that it has been 7 months.. We’re done our first year next month. It’s kind of sad, in a way. I’ll miss all the good times and definitely will miss everyone over the summer. We might be broken up into different sections next year too which would really suck. The friends that I have made this year are the best.
My teachers here are also so amazing. I know I have said this many times in my blogs but I am so happy that I came here. The teachers in the journalism program and the academic chair are some of the best people that I have ever met. So willing to help in any way that they can. I had been emailing one of my teachers about some personal problems that I was having in terms of homework and such. He always told me if I needed to rant or whatever to feel free to email him about anything. I told him today that I felt bad doing that as I know he had more important things to do. He said “You’re so wrong. You are important. I have nothing more or less important to do, I care and I want to help.” Just amazing people. My photo teacher from last semester is still willing to sit down with me and look through pictures that I took for a photography assignment for my new photo teacher. I am blown away every day by how completely awesome everyone is. I am excited for everything that is to come in this program. We have a day long photography project tomorrow so I am a little nervous about that but my academic chair said “you’re going to be great.” The support here, you guys, is just the best.
I’m going to be sad when this semester ends. Moving out of res (I won’t miss my neighbours), saying goodbye to my roommate, saying by to my friends and teachers for the summer and not knowing what is to come in my second year of the program. This year was amazing though so I am sure that next year will be too. I mean, there is still so much work to be done this semester so there’s no time to be sad yet!
Thanks for an amazing 7 months, everyone. You all are the best and I’m glad that my life brought me to SAIT!
