Start of Something New

Monday marked the beginning of the first day of Fall semester. My classes are pretty good and I am over flowing with joy that I am FINALLY done with General Education classes and can focus on my major and minor.

Monday ALSO marked the beginning of a new venture for my dance group on campus. Every year student groups audition to be the entertainment for Gator Growl. And just in case you are asking what is Gator Growl I will tell you. Gator Growl is the largest student run pep rally in the country, and happens during homecoming week here in Gainesville. The show is held in the stadium and usually includes a band and comedian in addition to whatever student group performs.

Dancin' Gators is auditioning this year. A group of about 40 dancers will perform a medley of songs for about a 5 minute performance featuring jazz, contemporary, and some hip hop. I am in three of the four sections. :)

We started practice on Tuesday night and will be practicing about everyday until the audition, which is two weeks away! With light of all of Dancin' Gators recent accomplishments and growth in membership I think our group has improved alot and has a great shot at winning!

Besides classes starting and dancing everyday, I am preparing for Graduate school!
I am applying to UNF for their Public Administration program. I should be graduating from UF in either the summer of 2010 or Fall 2010.
I think the degree would be helpful in my pursuit to work in non-profit organizations- and keeping my fingers crossed that I find enough time to study for the GRE and get the scores and grades I need to be accepted!
