So, this is the first time i've blogged..ever! We'll see how this goes. I guess i should start off by giving a little backgroud info on myself. My name is Jessica, and i am a 3rd year Biotechnology major here at RIT. I am from Binghamton, NY which is only about 2.5 hours south of here, right near the pa border. I am on the lacrosse team..that takes up a lot of my time, but i've finally got to the point where its actually worth it to me. I couldn't imagine not playing. My life basically consists of class, work, and lacrosse stuff..with the occasional fun night or weekend, but ya know as long as you have fun just doing what you normally do..its all good. Anything can be a good time..you just have to MAKE it a good time :) Hmm..what else. I live off campus this year..and i absolutely LOVE it! I live in an apt with three other people, about 10 minutes from campus. It is totally worth the drive and the gas and any hassle it may cause, because having that separation of school and home has done wonders for my grades. Being able to get off campus and away from everything is so nice. I got my first 4.0 this last fall quarter..and i credit most of it to living off campus..not all of it..but it definitely has a lot to do with it. Well i guess thats it for now..i have to go pack and head home for xmas break!! I can't wait to get there!
