Epic & Getting to Know

Well. Survived the first week of school! What a crazy week.. I don't quite know what to say about it. It was what it was!

Living off-campus is different, but I'm pretty sure I like it better. It's a little bit less convenient. I now have to get up two hours before my classes to take the bus to campus and it takes about half-an hour to get home. It's okay. I do like relieving the feeling of not being at school all the time. It feels nicer, and I like the feeling of living in a real home.

School and life is as busy as ever. It's hard for me to believe that just last week, I was back home sleeping my days away. My brain is starting to work hard again, and I really hope that it speeds up soon. I need it! I know that I haven't been functioning well these past couple of days, but I believe that had something to do with the lack of proper sleep as well though.

Tonight, PCE had it's first event, inviting new members to our club called "Getting to Know." It's basically a social and gave a little preview of what's to come. I met a lot of new people, but I probably can't remember a lot of them yet. Hopefully I'll see them around more and I'll remember them soon! It's so exciting! I just wish that I could do all the things that I did last year (and probably more), but the pressure is on and I realize that I can't keep putting off my studies for more social time. It's a lot of fun though! We'll see how it goes. I would probably be really tired all the time, but it was really fun last year! I don't regret doing everything last year, but it's time to grow up a little bit more and pick and choose which events are worth going to.

First days of school

I can't believe it's my third year in college! Even though it's only been two years, I feel like it's been so much longer! Is that a good thing or not? Eep.

I say it's a good thing. Looking back on my past two years, I feel like I've been able to do a lot. It's definitely been a very full two years and I'm about to start another one. It's been a crazy blur but a very fun one!

I'm starting school tomorrow! I should really be sleeping but I'm filled with excitement and worries that I might forget something. Hoping to get an early start tomorrow though. Get things ready for the new quarter. It's looking like a tough one, class-wise, but definitely looking forward to being busy and productive again!

Okay so..

I really don't want to complain about anything, but I guess this will be more of a 'what makes me really sad' post.

It makes me really sad living off-campus without a car. Even though my roommates and my friends all have cars, it's so inconvenient not having my own. If I need to go out to run errands of my own or need to be somewhere, I don't want to ask them to take me, especially if they don't need to be there. I feel so bad! All my roomies have boyfriends too, so they're not home too often. I knew this was coming, that I'd be home by myself a lot. I just didn't expect that I wouldn't be able to go out when I wanted.

So.. here's to the many days and nights spent inside my room! Pictures soon! I'm still tidying up. =]

Oh man

Lesson learned. Don't upgrade to iTunes 9 or iPhone 3.1 just yet. O jeez.

I'm afraid that if I sleep now, I won't wake up in time to pack my things up for SLO in the morning. But I guess if I put it off longer, I might crash even harder later on.

Farewell to my family and friends back home! I hope to see you soon! I'll try to keep this blog updated as much as I can. I'm a little tired for a long post right now. =/ Hopefully tomorrow night!

Because this song makes me feel good

while I'm trying to fix this mess that I'm in.. updating my brother's iPhone...

Wanna be starting something

Tomorrow, I'll be away for a weekend at the beach with this year's staff! No phones, no Internet. I'll have my laptop with me though. I have those privileges this year! It should be a nice break from being unplugged as well.

This past week has been fun, being able to chill with friends before the hectic and demanding schedule of the school year starts. I'm still settling into my house and my room, but it's been great so far! It's nice having a place off-campus. Surprisingly enough, my friends and I still live close to each other, which is nice! Not too close but not too far away as well.

We also got Cable and Internet on Tuesday and the TV has been on all week all day. It kind of makes me sad, actually, to have such things. The two days that I was here without being plugged in was nice. People were over and we didn't need such things to have a decent conversation. I guess our conversations still remain the same, but background noise just increased. I must admit, though, that the Internet helps us communicate with others in a faster way.

Well, what do I have coming up this weekend? Staff retreat with lots of fun and bonding! It should be great and I'm getting really psyched for this year to come, in terms of PCE. Afterwards, I'll be back home for a week to spend just a little more time with family and hometown friends. :)

And so it begins...

Tomorrow, or later today I should say, I'll be going back to San Luis Obispo for more than a weekend visit. Though I'll be coming back home soon after a week away, I'd like to say that this is when my third year of college will start to commence. A lot has changed, and more will continue to take place. I'd like to say that I've learned a lot from the past two years of college, but I know there is still more to learn.

Even though I'm not quite moving away just yet (I still have a few more trips back and forth before I go home for a while), I'm feeling more like I did back in the summer before college: excited to go to school and experience new things, but sad to leave friends and family behind. I really wish everyone I know and love just lived in the same place! But right now, I'm letting everyone go their separate ways, as I should be doing as well.

Let's meet again, in one year. I'll try to post more during the year!
