What happened in the past week. All I know is that somehow it is already September 18th and I have been on campus for over a month.
Somewhere in between August 12th and today I have found the time to get situated, meet my residents (I’m a Resident Assistant remember), hangout with my friends from last year, make new friends from this year, volunteer at RISSE (the refugee program I mentioned before in my blog), go support my awesome roommate from last year at her soccer games, attend 9 classes a week, attend at least 4 meetings a week, eat at Asian Place, AND have time to breath. Oh and I am running a 5k this weekend!
Although it may seem like I am buried under a mountain of things, I enjoy doing mostly everything I listed above (I can not say I fully enjoy my 2.5 hour marketing class). I really enjoy being fully involved on campus with my friends and the good thing about being so busy is that I barely have time to miss my parents or dog (sorry Dad, I really do miss you though!). When someone asks me how my day was most of the time I can not think of what I actually did (its like when you change the channel of the TV when there is a commercial and then can not remember what you were watching), but I say it was good with an automatic smile on my face. This is because no matter how long the day or how hard my classes can get I know I am where I belong and am happy to be back in the swing of things at Saint Rose.
