A WINDOW INTO THE DAILY LIFE AND THOUGHTS OF SLIS STUDENTS

Semester by the Numbers

The end of the semester always makes me think about numbers. The big GPA looming over my head. How much time I spend wasting instead of working on my finals like I should be doing. This week, I decided to do a little bit of calculating and submit for your perusal the important numbers from my semester.

4: The number of classes I took (That's 14 credits. Yes, I might be crazy. No, people usually don't take that many classes.)

29: The number of hours I volunteered at Boston Arts Academy / Fenway High School Library.

160 : The approximate number of hours I spent physically sitting in a classroom.

53: The number of books I had on hold at my local library.

101 : The number of books I read (YA, middle grade, beginning readers and picture books).

168 : The number of articles I read.

27, 251 : The number of words in all my papers.

6: The number of presentations I did.

As you can see, it was a lot of work. But it was all so worth it.

All the Best - Hayley
