jesse-85Happy Halloween! You know, this is definitely one of my favorite times of the year. I have so many fond memories of Power Ranger costumes, $1 ninja swords from the swap meet, and making trades with my brother, “I’ll give you two butterfingers for those M&M’s, C’mooooon.” Yup, those were the days!

Things have changed a little bit now… Instead of screaming alongside my cousins as we watched scary movies in our apartment, I now find myself afraid of something a lot more intimidating than a possessed doll or some dude with really sharp finger-claws. I’m talking about College.

Especially when midterms and papers start to pile up, College can be a very scary place. Not only do you have a bunch of other things you have to worry about (practice, meetings, work, etc), you have to make sure to stay on top of those studies! That is, after all, why you went to college in the first place.

Despite how scary things can get, if you work hard and put in the time, you WILL make it through. I promise. Besides, you’ve had to go through so much to make it to college as a first-generation college student already, a little homework itsn’t going to stop you!

Check out this video to see how I was holding up during a rough patch (The Scary), how I made it through (The Sweet), and how I did on my first Salsa Performance of the semester (The Spicy)!
