Hello, everybody!!My name is Chuyun Huang but you probably won’t recognize this name because people usually call me Wendy. I think of myself as a very normal Taiwanese teen that happens to be studying in Baruch College.Well, if you want to learn more about me, I would say that I am a very out-going, talkative, and fun-loving person. I like to try new things, I like to laugh out loud, and I really enjoy spending time with my friends who make me laugh and laugh and laugh.
My first concern for my first semester here in Baruch is not being able to reach a high GPA like everyone said I should, I understand that it will be difficult to pull up your GPA in later semesters, but I don’t know how to achieve this goal since some of my professors don’t even make sense to me. And that’s where my second concern comes in, right now, I am struggling in my anthropology and math class, and the reason I am struggling is because I simply do not understand the materials, as if they taught us things are from outer-space, and I just don’t get them! Finally, my last concern is that I don’t have a specific major yet, I know this is my own problem, so hopefully I can figure out what to major in by the end of this semester.
To this point, I think college and high school are two different worlds. College is definitely more difficult and you can feel the pressure just looking through the syllabus. On the other hand, high school, and I am referring to my senior year, it was just a place where you go, sit around all day doing nothing. So for me, I definitely enjoy my college life better, and I think the best part is that you have more freedoms and people treat you like adults, not kids.
I think/I hope my first year college experience will change me into a better person, someone who is smarter, more mature, and above all, more clear about one’s future.
