One major difference between high school and college is that when second semester rolls around, students get an entirely new schedule in college, while in high school, students are reduced to have two or three classes switch out in exchange for another.
So, I'm living a vastly different life as compared to my first semester of college. I got a job this semester and it's been a struggle learning how to balance twelve hours of work with a seventeen-credit semester.
I like my classes a lot better than last semester. My Philosophy class is very interesting. Just yesterday, we had an hour-long discussion about faith and reason. And yet we still didn't come up with an answer. We never do in that class. But I think that's what I like about it. Everything else in my life requires an answer. But philosophy is just thinking.
My journalism class is also great. I'm finally learning how to use all of the computer software that people just expect novice journalists know how to use. I'm realizing that journalism is a lot more artsy that I thought. Especially with photography. We took pictures around Marquette's campus and are now learning how to use Photoshop.
I also really enjoy this honors seminar, Psychology of the Narrative Self. Although I've only had two classes (the classes are only once a week), it's been very interesting.

Now that we've written a basic outline of our life, we will receive a classmate's autobiography and have to analyze it.
