Very insightful first journal entry from a student in GEAR UP KY Summer Academy@UK
My first couple of days of GearUP have been very interesting. I am loving getting to experience college life and everything, but it’s been pretty hard. We have back to back classes all day, which is really cool but also quite stressful. I’m beginning to realize that college life is more than constant partying and,” all fun all the time,” like it’s usually made out to be. Honestly, I’m really excited to be challenged. Sometimes high school is a little bit too easy so a challenge is kind of refreshing. I can’t wait to see what the rest of this three weeks holds and I’m really excited to see how this experience will effect me later on.
