Hello there! Week one of my second college semester is in the books!I have Fridays off which is super nice and I plan on getting a lot of sh*t done. (Maybe...but I probably won't! You're lucky I even got this post up!). This semester is going to be a lot more "at-home" work than last. I don't think any of my classes will be very hard in the "content/understanding" part, but more demanding in work that will be due.
Since I don't want to bore you with my whole week, here are just some memorable moments: a rainy cold day to start the first day of classes, joy! I enjoy all my classes and professors so far (however, that is always subject to change...), flashback to AP Latin last year...I have to memorize and recite a poem in my creative writing class next week, oddly delicious over-cooked dining hall salmon, I will be dissecting a baby dead pig in bio lab during the second half of the semester (I got out of that one junior year of high school because I was taking my driver's test!), the leg-press is back and I am so going to crush that goal soon!, we don't have school Monday (thank you MLK!), I am enjoying reading my comparative politics book...o boy!), I have a lot of work to do and presentations to prepare for next week so.....read this good stuff for me and enjoy your Friday! I'm looking forward to chilling out in my favorite Friday work/study spot from last year this morning after my workout! XOXO
