First Day of Classes

Today was the first day of classes. There's not much to talk about, but it is a milestone in my life, so at least wanted to write down something. Wednesdays are actually my busiest days, with three two-hour classes, but not really. The first class is a 10AM discussion that is allotted two hours of time, but is actually only about an hour long, with the second hour available as office hours. This gives me enough time to go get lunch before my second class of the day, Classics R44. That one is also slightly shorter than the allotted two hours, which gives me a bigger break before my last class of the day, SOC3AC, a large sociology lecture.

All three of these classes are on the Northside, so I did a lot of walking back and forth today. However, Northside also has a Trader Joe's and Target, so I went in and bought a few groceries and supplies. I now have a nice set of pens to use to color code and whatnot (though I think Pilot pens, especially the 0.7 ones, are out of style now). A bus conveniently takes me back to Unit Two.

I wanted to go back to my room and record all my due dates in my planner and calendar, but a floormate was rounding up people to go to dinner, so I thought, why not? I met a few new people and had a decent time, before heading up to my room once again. There, a friend texted me asking if I wanted to hang out. Lately I've been worried about not having enough of a social life in college, so again, I went, and had a great time. Later, once the semester picks up, I'll have even less time to hang out with friends, so I'm trying to take advantage of what time I have right now. I already have 80 pages of reading due by Monday! I still have yet to fall into a tight knit squad, but there's still the rest of semester for that.

I know this update isn't as exciting, but I wanted to memorialize the first official day of college somehow. I've been doing pretty well, and that's all for now. ◊
