🐉I LIIIIIIIVEEEEEEE!!! (It’s from Mulan… I love Mushu).
It’s Friday! (WOOT WOOT) Happy Friday, everyone! If you can believe it, I made it through my first week of college classes. Phew.
Oh my gosh, so…HI YOU GUYS! HOW ARE YOU? I am just great (and a bit tired). I am so happy it’s Friday because it means I get a little reprieve from all the hustle and bustle of the week. (But I still have lots of work/study to get done!) I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted and I am so sorry. I have been so busy with studying, attending lectures, getting things done and all that fancy stuff… and I just haven’t had time for really anything else, but the “needful.”
My classes have been challenging, fun (I am a huge science geek), and stressful. I had two quizzes this week and I have a paper due on Monday (yay…). The quizzes went really well! I got 9/10 on my biology quiz (I changed my answer last minute… NEVER DO THAT UNLESS YOU’VE MARKED IT INCORRECTLY) and then I got a 10/10 on my English quiz. I love all my professors; they are all so nice and you can really tell that they want nothing more than to see their students succeed, which I think is just bombsauce.
Let me just say that I am so glad my mother taught me how to manage my time well; managing your time well is very, very important in college… (Thanks, Mom!) Lauren and I did really well this week, I think. At first, we struggled in terms of keeping our stress at bay. We really learned to lean on each other and help each other during the tough moments. As the week went on, things got easier and less overwhelming (even when the workload continued to grow). We managed to study hard, learn lots, do well on our first quizzes…. And stay sane (assuming we were sane prior to college)!😜
So if I had a dime for every time someone said I’ll be eating the classic college food “ramen” every night for dinner… I’d be rich! But the whole ramen thing is definitely not the case here at my university (WE HAVE A PIZZA ATM). The caf is, like, amazing. They have a pasta station where they make pasta to your taste, a sandwich station, a full dessert station with pastries, and then a station that has a whole meal put together for you already! AND THEY HAVE SOFT SERVE ICE CREAM (it’s hard to resist that stuff but I am doing pretty well so far and pacing myself). All in all, the food is really great (although nothing compares to homemade food from Mom and Dad).
I don’t mind being on my own… I actually like it (not that I dislike having Mum and Dada around). I’ve always been pretty independent so it’s not too weird to be on my own, but it’s definitely different to have to make my own appointments, pick up my own mail from the mail center, and go shopping (in another state) all by myself. That’s not to say I dislike it, though. I like responsibility!😃
I love our dorm! It’s super cute and pretty roomy in comparison to other universities I looked at. My roomies are pretty bombsauce, too! My sister is one of those roomies, but the other roomie is not related to us and she’s super nice. Lauren and I couldn’t have asked for a better roommate!
It’s been a very long week and I miss my mom and dad’s homemade food (and them of course), my doggies, and my friends. But I am enjoying my time here at my university, for sure. I can’t wait to see where this adventure takes me!
I will try my best to check in at the end of every week! I will most likely post on Fridays because it’s not smack bang in the middle of the week. So if you see that I am posting a TTT on Friday and not Tuesday… No, it’s not you, it’s me😂! I still want to post bookish things on here in addition to my college adventures. (UGH I miss reading… Well reading novels and not academic stuff)
Anyway! I hope y’all are well! Stay tuned for more college updates… And bookish stuff!
