My San Jac Story - Aly Vitela

The Girl Behind the Blog

Hey there!

I’m Alexandra Vitela.  My friends and family call me Aly. I’m 22-years-old.  I am the middle child out of three girls.

I started my college career at Lone Star - Montgomery in The Woodlands. I thought that was the school I wanted to attend. After three semesters and no friends later, I decided to move to Pasadena. I took a semester off to figure out what I was going to do. I’m not a quitter! I decided to check out San Jacinto College Central Campus and after only two days, I decided that this is the place to be.

My experience here has been a good one. The teachers are great. I have made friends. And the most importantly, I’m making good grades.

When I started college, I was 18-years-old and very immature. The older I’ve gotten, I’ve come to realize that school is what you make of it and I am going to make the most of my time here.

My whole life, I’ve wanted to become a teacher. I just knew that’s what I wanted to be. Well, as you can guess that has changed. I knew I could write, but I didn’t know I could WRITE! I took a writing Composition class and my professor got something out of me that I didn’t know existed.

When I was a kid, my mom used to always say ‘use your imagination’. So I did. But I didn’t know how to put it in words. Now I do!

I’ve got a journal full of interesting stories. When I go back and read them, I add to them. They are based on my childhood experiences.

I will be blogging about my experiences mostly; my classes during the summer and fall semester and campus events, anything that I may find interesting, and want to share with all of you. Hopefully my posts won’t be boring to anyone. Enjoy!
