Wow, have there been a lot of changes since the last time I posted anything on my blog. My dorm has become my home, and the first few quizzes have been done for classes. So yeah, the school year is already well on its way. Already this school year seems a little overwhelming as I have very little time on my hands. May I just say that professors seem to forget that students have more than just one class! Anyways, here’s how the past few weeks have been going.
First off, I got a job on campus! This will financially help me pay for this atrociously expensive adventure that is a private university education. However taking on 20 hours a week, most of which are done on weeknights, seems to be a little much. But being busy is helping me to make every second of my day count. Part of making every second count is making sure that homework gets done. This task is a little harder than I initially thought, since my professors are assigning at lest two hours worth of homework every class. This just means that instead of spending lots of time with friends, this semester is dedicated to school first.
Besides the usual changes that come with a new school year- new classes, new living space, new neighbors- life has been pretty routine. Since finishing my internship, I have a new appreciation and love of what I’m studying. For the first time I can see that there IS a future after graduation, and frankly I’m excited for “real life” to begin.
As far as my dorm this year, it’s much different from my living arrangement from last year. To begin, my roommate and I get along great, but we also live separate lives. I also feel as though even though this dorm is much smaller and I don’t have my own bathroom, it feels so much more like home. I finally was able to make my space feel just that, mine! For once I don’t feel as though I’m stepping on egg shells walking around my own room.
I know, the picture is awful. But this was the best possible lighting I could get.
Anyways, I hope that everyone is having a wonderful transition from Summer to Fall, regardless of if you are in school or not. Lots of love from Milwaukee!
