Hey guys and gals! Sorry it’s been so long since I posted anything! I was lacking ideas and I tried writing a few random posts, but they just weren’t working for me (excuses, excuses, I know.:p )
But, I finally decided to just give you guys an update on what’s going on in my life, so let’s get to it!
Monday, Michael and I started college! Yay! Or more, kind of yay. 😛 In complete honesty, the past few days have been a little bit rough, but hopefully things will get better soon! College is a bigger change than I thought it would be, and it’s going to take some adjusting and getting used to! But, I’m so thankful to have Michael by my side through all of it and for all he does to help make the bad days better and easier. He’s just wonderful. ❤
As far as classes go, this semester I’m taking five classes (15 credit hours total) and they’re all general education requirements, which so far seems to mean lots of books( I bought/rented 12 books total. :p ) and lots of homework, which is already proving to be a bit overwhelming so we’ll see how this semester goes. Luckily though, I have plenty of time to work on homework between classes, but unfortunately, it gets a little lonely being by yourself for three hours at a time, so I’m still having to adjust to that!
So far, I haven’t really gotten involved or made new friends like everyone suggests you do your freshman year of college, but, in time, I will. Right now, I’m working on simply adjusting to the differences between high school and college, and then I’ll look at joining clubs and being a little bit more social. I’m more on the shy side, so I have to adjust to my new surrounding and become more comfortable before I really start talking much, and that’s what I’m doing right now.
But, looking on the bright side, while this week has been a little rough, not having a dress code is pretty awesome! I went to a private, Christian high school, and while we didn’t have uniforms, we did have a fairly strict dress code which did not include yoga pants, leggings, or any athletic wear basically. So actually being able to just throw on yoga pants and a t shirt for school is a huge plus for me and I’ve taken advantage of it the past few days. :p AND, we have a Chick Fil A, a Taco Bell, and a Starbucks on campus, so I’m pretty happy about that.
I mentioned him briefly a little bit earlier in this post, but I am so, so, so thankful to have Michael with me to help make this transition easier. Even when the days are long, rough, and hard, knowing that your best friend and your better half is there to listen to you, to be a shoulder to cry on, and to cheer you up is such a blessing, and I’m so thankful that Michael is here with me to do that, and that I’m here to do the same for him. I really don’t know where I’d be without him by my side, and I’m so thankful I don’t have to find out. ❤
And I think that about covers it all! My life isn’t all that exciting at the moment. :p I get up, go to school, do homework, hang out with Michael, and go home and sleep and repeat the next day. College is busy and challenging, even in the first few days, and I will definitely be glad when Friday rolls around!
Thank you guys for taking the time to read my post, it means a lot to me, and I will see you guys again soon!
