Hi! My name is Kristen, and I am from the beautiful island of Oahu! I'm a sophomore Biology major /Public health minor here at Santa Clara.
I am also new to the ACCESS Card Office and so far, I really enjoy it. I've been able to meet a lot of new people and I am learning a lot about the University.
So far this quarter has not been the best. Midterms are approaching and I am still trying to adjust to my new schedule. During Winter quarter I didn't start classes until 3:30 pm! Now, I have an 8 am for the first time in almost a year. I am a night owl, which means I work best once the sun sets, so staying up until 2 am studying every night and waking up before the sun rises is really difficult to manage. I really need to work on going to sleep earlier, but it's always hard when you're always surrounded by a fun, social environment AND you have a lot of homework to do!
I hope I can figure out how to get to sleep earlier, but if I don't, at least I have my coffee!
