“Be myself, everyone else is already taken.”
I think who I am depends on different time and different people. Sometimes, I hope I can Google how different people feel about me. I think I am a unique Chinese live in New York City. I know I always make mistakes, but I am proud to be me, and I am willing to experience more tastes in my life. I am a freshman in Baruch College. I graduated from Lower East Side Prep High School and I went to Lewiston High School in Maine when I first came to the United States. This part of background makes me differ from everyone. I am generally a quiet person to strangers, but I am kind of chatty after knowing the person. I play basketball at my spare time and I like spending time on movies and chatting with my friends on internet. I have a quite positive attitude when I deal with all kinds of trouble. I am engaged to learn new things, but then I lack of patient to explore the new knowledge when things go too complicated or go beyond the topic. I speak English as my second language as many fellow students. I see life is full of stories. While I am experiencing unique story, I am getting wiser and mature to keep on good work.
I feel restless but excited in the first month of my freshman year at Baruch College. The top three concerns about my freshman year here are, adjusting myself into college life, making friends, and looking for my interest in career path. I always hesitate when I am going to make decision. I see things have so many possibilities and I would do my best to make it good. As I look forward to knowing more people, I could not step outside my comfort zone. The first thing i have to adjust, is I receive tons of reading for homework which alerts me I have to improve my reading speed and understand the content. Study is on my own and professors would no longer ask me to study but the grade would automatically reflects my work. Secondly, I want to make more friends in the freshman year at Baruch College because I need friends. Lastly, I think it’s time to plan for future and get to know more about myself. I believe I will discover my interests of my life throughout the freshman year at college.
I think college life is totally different than high school. College students are more eager to study and college constantly contributes a better learning atmosphere for its students. The first thing came up my mind when I think of the differences between college and high school is time management. I recognize I have a poor time management skill in the first month at college. I try to arrange my time so that I can put the most effort into study.
At last, I think my first year at Baruch College will change me to be an independent and responsible person. In particular, I think I would improve my reading and writing skill within the freshman year. And I am going to enjoy the college life.
