Learn to Laugh and Liberal Arts


“Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning to do afterward.”
― Kurt Vonnegut

I decided to look up quotes on laughter, and the above, well, it made me laugh! I would like to think, as this next semester rises in front of us, that the above quote shall be my goal. Frustration and exhaustion are two words that describe the average college student pretty well. I know there will be days where I am exhausted from staying up late the night before to finish an assignment. I will get tired. But I would like to laugh instead. I think a positive outlook can do a person a world of good. My goal this semester is to learn to laugh even when I’m tired!

With that in mind, this semester I am taking fifteen credit hours. My classes range from Introduction to Communication to Politics, Philosophy, and Economics, to Concepts of Physical Fitness. With a few more classes in between. I am really taking a wide variety! I like that though.

One of the things I really love about Bryan is how it is a Liberal Arts school. And because of that I am able to study many different subjects. It certainly keeps your brain active! I enjoy doing so many different things that this type of school is perfect for me. I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else.  For instance, I’m a Business major! But I love Tennis. And since I go to a Liberal Arts College, I’m able to go hang out in the Exercise and Health Science Department to take a Tennis class. It’s a great situation! And it makes a lot of students around here happy.

So, yes, I do believe it is going to be a good semester.
