Well this week started a new school year! 5 classes, 15 credits, this semester, but finally all classes that are essential to my major. This was what kids term “syllabus week” and adding/dropping classes occurs. It’s also the week where you feel completely stressed out and all over the place, trying to figure out the new routine and how much time each class is really going to require. It usually gets easier (I hope!) and I’m just trying to say positive and not think to much about all the papers I’ll have to write (weekly!)
I still can’t believe the summer is over! It just started, didn’t it? Fall semester always goes by faster than Spring, so I’ll just keep my sights on winter break now, hopefully it will come soon, haha! I’m looking to do a few more “summer” things before the official end of summer in 2 weeks…I’ll hold on to every moment I can before the cold weather comes and sun disappears! Cheers to the weekend, gluten-free friends!
