Welcome Back LU & HSC

Being back at school is exhilarating and excruciating all at the same time. There's the friends, and then there's class; there's freedom and independence, and then there's homework and tests. There's BCM and then there's stress. Yes, summer was freeing and relaxing, but also dull and boring for the workaholics like me.

I am settled into my apartment and it is so pretty with three girls living there to spruce up the place. My room is like floating in a sea of green because my curtains (which are lime green) capture the sun and reflect a bright green light onto my walls. I feel like Kermit the Frog, but I like it.

Seeing friends around campus makes my heart soar. And I always end up seeing those friends that I'd forgotten about over the summer. Okay, not really "forgotten" in the sense that I "forgot" them, but the friends that I wasn't close with.. you know what I'm saying right? I see friendly and familiar faces everywhere and it's very calming. Especially, when I'm walking down the sidewalk wondering if I remembered to print of my math homework (today) and I look up and there's someone coming at me with open arms ready for a hug. It's reassuring and comforting to see so many people that I've met just on one (okay, two because of H-SC) campus.

Honestly, I thought I had a lot of friends in high school.... turns out I know more in college. Isn't that crazy?

Summer Days

Summer day's got me feelin' lazy. That kind of sounds like a song lyric. Hmm..

Anyway, I've been worn out between working, having a puppy, working, getting ready for school, working, hanging out with friends, and working I haven't had much time to blog. I feel like I haven't even had much time to sleep. :P

This coming week Monday - Friday is that last day of work! YES! And then it's to the beach (: And then it's back to school. Oh my, how this summer has FLOWN by! I'm looking forward to going back. I love my two roommates - they are my sisters (not like my sisters... they are). I'm looking forward to seeing my wonderful BCM family (even though some of my closest friends are now graduated and moving on in their schooling/careers/lives). I'm looking forward to meeting the incoming freshman and help shape their college careers. I'm not looking forward to classes. I'm really not. And I know it's dangerous to go in already feeling this way, not enthusiastic about it already but I can't help it. I honestly think this is the first year that I haven't been excited about school. I'm such a freak about being excited, and this time I'm just not.

Maybe it's all those years of being excited when I shouldn't be excited for school coming back to bite me in the butt. It's like "Haha! This is the most important schooling of your life and I'm gonna ruin it!" Stupid.
