So I really was going into this week optimistically, but that all went down hill slowly starting on Tuesday and the massive crash was on Wednesday. One of those days where everything that could go wrong did. It was bad...I cried basically the whole day. The one highlight was working out and lifting heavy weights. Working out makes me feel so much better. I feel like a new person afterwards. So I made sure I kept that going strong the rest of the week with some awesome sweat sessions (I may even share a workout with you on Monday! It has been MONTHS since I last did!).
Anyway, I am slowly starting to iron things out. The dining hall (I must have jinxed) because there was some major miscommunication with the staff that lead to some major mess-ups. Starbucks isn't taking GWorld right now. When I tried to pay and they denied me, I said forget it, but some kind government official looking woman told the cashier she would pay for my drink. Seriously, so embarrassing, but that lady was so kind. Some people are awesome. I can't handle a language. Spanish is horrible (the teacher only speaks Spanish) and the book I ordered online didn't come with the access code I need to sign up for the online portal for homework (thus I was so so so far behind, with no way to catch up). So I am now in the process of dropping that class and simply taking a health and wellness class (most likely something called Functional Fitness, just so I can get enough credits to be a full-time student). So now that I am not going to ever take a language, I have to switch from the Elliott School to the Colombian School of Arts and Sciences and change my major to (hopefully) Political Science and Public Policy. I think this will be much better for me and I will be meeting with advisers from that school later today to find out if this transfer can be made for the Spring semester.
I am just a bundle of nerves, emotions, sadness, and homesickness right now. I am trying to hard and that is all I can do. I'll let you know how everything turns out on Monday...until then...Happy Friday!
