The Usual Routine

Hi Raptors!

As I started my Monday morning with the usual classes and the usual breakfast, it never occurred to me that I had missed an important deadline. I forgot to submit my blog this past Sunday:( I never thought I could completely blank out on something this important to me, but indeed it happened. And I’m sure it can happen to anyone.

Well as I now get back on track, I wanted to talk to you about the things we will probably forget as we get closer to our Thanksgiving break. We are already so used to our routines that we may forget about other important events that can be happening in our lives. For instance, a family member’s birthday or an anniversary or even your dog’s birthday. Jokes aside, I think we must be aware of what else is happening around us and a great way to that is by taking a break. I know a break is coming our way, but taking a personal break on a weekend should totally be allowed. Our school work is important for sure, but we can’t let that be everything that takes up our time.

Taking the time to get out of your routine can surely improve the way you approach your day. Setting up a routine is important and very good. Don’t get me wrong; routine gives you a sense of assurance and lets you know what to expect. Who doesn’t like that, right? With a routine, also comes boredom. We are so caught up in our own lives that we don’t notice the good and important moments around us. While taking your break, try writing down events that you look forward to these last months of the year. There’s no such thing as a small event because you’re the only one who decides its importance. Of course, try not to forget those homework deadlines our professors will emphasize this week!

Just take the time to take a breath and look around you. Notice what’s happening and what will be happening soon in your life. Look forward to it and hold on to it until it happens.



Meredith Cordero

¡Hola! My name is Meredith and this is my third and last year at MC. I hope to transfer to the Universities at Shady Grove (USG) next fall. My goal is to become an orthodontist and reach out to countries and communities that cannot afford dental care. I hope to share my experience with you all and most importantly enjoy the process as we get through this year together.

I am now 20 years old and exactly 5 feet tall. Don’t let that fool you though; I am a small but concentrated human being. I enjoy talking to people just about anything, and I listen to a lot of music in my free time in both Spanish and English. Music is so special to me, especially if there’s meaning behind the lyrics and if it makes you move like nobody’s watching. I love going to the movies on the weekends.

When it comes to school, I am all for it. I am a low-key (maybe high-key) nerd. I get excited if I’m feeling prepared and organized when I step onto campus, almost like a super hero. Ok, maybe not to everyone. Either way, I always look forward to a new day and what’s to come with it. This doesn’t mean I will always be happy, but I will at least try to overcome what may bring me down.

I have never written a blog about myself, but I do enjoy talking so hopefully that comes in handy -fingers crossed! MC has not just taught me about the many opportunities but also being part of a diverse community might just be the best thing you could ever be part of. I am thankful for this opportunity and I hope you enjoy what I have to share about MC and well, me!
