Activities, Student Groups...So Many to Choose From!

When I first came to Berkeley, there seemed to be soooo many options. Welcome Week was overwhelming, especially with Calapalooza and all the student groups that seemed like they would be so much fun to join. I was over-ambitious, and I soon realized that I would never be going to a different meeting each night of the week. But after a while, I found what suited me best and kept with that. Recently, I've been trying to attempt new things and join new student groups, and I hope that they will continue in with my normal weekly schedule.

I think I still might be thinking a little too ambitiously, but I've struck a good balance for the moment when it comes to student groups and extracurriculars. I started going to Berkeley College Republican meetings last year, and soon realized that I needed them to stay sane in this sometimes crazy place that is Berkeley. Knowing that there were people on this campus who felt the same way as I did about certain topics made me feel incredibly happy...overjoyed in fact!! After I found a group that I felt welcomed in, I knew that I could go out and do more things. That's when I decided that I would love to be a PAL and help other people know about CNR.
Other than student groups, I've been having a lot of fun exploring San Francisco with my friends. Going to Little Italy, Japantown, and Union Square has kept us busy, and I would highly recommend taking full advantage of everything the city has to offer. I have not yet made it to any museums, but that is next on our list of things to accomplish this semester. Yes, we do actually have a huge list on our fridge with everything that my roommates and I want to do this semester. It has helped us tremendously in organizing all the amazing things that we thought of to do. If you just have too many ideas, and too many options, make an awesome list and cross stuff off as you go :)
