This semester, I decided to do something new and outside of my comfort zone…take a painting class! While several members of my family share unique artistic abilities, I have never thought of myself as “artistic.”
At first, I didn’t know anyone in the class, and my painting abilities were nothing to be proud about. But now, it is one of my favorite classes with some of the nicest people I have met, and my painting has definitely improved with practice.
I love that it is different than any class that I have taken. It’s a much-needed break between writing papers, reading textbooks and taking quizes!
My advice: each semester, take a class that interests you outside of your major. You meet new people you never would have crossed paths with before, and it saves you from a boring routine of same-old, same-old classes.
