I just love my PostSecret (for those of you who don't know, PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a postcard) so much, I think I might post one from the weekly post. I've been known to wish at 11:11, and my most recent wish actually has come true, so it may be something I continue to do.
In other news, I am really starting to enjoy this whole college thing. At first I was apprehensive, and I wasn't sure where I was going to fit, but I'm starting to figure it out. More than that, I'm making some really good friends. After sort of hanging around my dorm all morning, I went and got lunch alone, then I met up with someone I met a couple of days ago, and we just hung out in her dorm until three, when we met up with 2 more of her friends. Then, after visiting the bookstore and doing some other various stuff, we met up with a fifth friend for dinner, and attended the "when hello gets out of hand" skit/discussion and the campus life skit. After that, we decided to skip out on free rootbeer floats (saaaadddd) but the line was RIDICULOUSLY long, and we probably would have had to stand in line for 30 minutes minimum! We met up with another friend, who went on the canoe trip with me and was in my canoe, and was the editor of his high school newspaper, the Viking Vangaurd, and the six of us walked around, considered going to Seattle (one kid has a car) or down to 6th Ave. and eventually headed to a dorm to hang out. One girl has a double room in Schiff with a private bathroom TO HERSELF! Apparently her mom called the school and "made special arrangements" to get it for her. So the six of us chilled there and Facebook stalked some people, and really just had a good time!
I'm glad I'm starting to make some friends that feel close; friends that I can talk to and hang out with without feeling awkward. It is really really nice. And I know that once class starts, I'll meet even more people. I think the warming up to college has just taken me a little longer than it did for others. The first night they already had their party buddies, and I didn't really have anyone. But now I have several people that I like spending time with, and more to come surely.
More good news is that I got into all of the classes I wanted. My schedule looks like this, essentially: Chinese 101 at 9am on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and also at 9:20 on Tuesday. Geomythology at 10 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Advanced French (230) at 12:30 until 1:50 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Public Campaign Communications (COMM252) from 2 until 3:15 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Basically, Mondays and Wednesdays I will have all of my classes done before 11, which will be really good when I get a job. Tuesdays I have a morning, a break, and my afternoon classes, and then Thursday can be a sleep-in day.
But speaking of getting a job, besides cleaning off my desk tomorrow, I am also going to fill out the paperwork to go turn in at Howarth 101 in order to get (hopefully) an on campus or close to campus job. I also called the bank security and she said that they had no info on my card, it shouldn't be off, and there have been no warnings on it... so I don't know what the heck is going on. The finance office also wasn't available so I couldn't see about credit for my books, but I only have 2, maybe three to buy, so I'll do it tomorrow, I just have to pay with cash from my ATM card. Oh well.
Well, I have matriculation tomorrow, and I think I am going off campus to have dinner with my friends, so I'd better get my rest. Love you all! <3
