So the summer was crazy busy and I felt that there wasn’t much to update on. I am still not very blog savvy. But now that I am back at school I hope to update more on the life and times of me.
Ok here is the low down on the last two weeks of my oh so wonderful life: I got the chance to drive down to school with my mom (the reason she came was a cousin was also getting married in the same place, same weekend, but also because she loves me, hi mom!!) The problem with driving through the North West, as I’m sure most of you know, is that two weeks ago it was all on fire!! And guess who got sick and sneezed ash out her nose? you guessed it me. Needless to say, if my mom hadn’t been with my I probably wouldn’t have survived and would right now be half dead on some who knows what highway, halfway to Kentucky.
Once I got to school, the move-in was relatively easy, I even met my roommate who my mom calls my “twin-soul”. So I already feel like the semester is off to a great start. (The shower did break however by day two so everyone in my apartment was using one and you do the math on that, six girls+one shower=bad idea.)
But the main item of critical importance is the weather. Yeah, yeah that sounds boring and whatnot but hear me out: I come from Western Washington. I have been living in the desert of Idaho. I was excited to go home and have rain for the first time in months. Freaking MONTHS! But do you know what I was stuck with? Two days. Out of the 4 months I was home from school all I got was TWO. DAYS. OF. RAIN. I felt so dried out I thought I was turning into beef jerky. But the most wonderful amazing thing happened. Two days into the semester it starts raining where I’m at school! And not just a slight drizzle, it was a full on downpour. For five days! Count them, yes, I said five. It was amazing!! It was perfect because even though I am not anywhere near my home, it felt more like home than the entire summer had (weather wise not people/family wise). I would just leave my window open and take walks in the rain. I refused to take an umbrella because I’m from Washington for goodness sake, and only chumps actually use the umbrellas they keep in their cars and houses. I was having some of the best days, but a roommate of mine was not. She’s from California and she hated how cold and wet everything got, once more her dog that came with her is afraid of the rain. So she was having the opposite of what I would say was my up most elated joy. I thought I would be a fish out of water but turns out I was the only fish in a huge freaking ocean. I think that metaphor works.
Besides all that I really do feel that this semester is going to be better than all my previous ones. I am close with my friends and roommates and truly the world is my oyster. I enjoy most of my classes so far (oddly enough one I thought would be fun and exciting is the most boring, and I rather enjoy the work of one of the more harder classes I have, it’s also one of the easiest). I am excited to see what new wonders will come this year, and will try to keep it more updated as time goes by.
