Well, it's been awhile since I last posted something. And that's not because I haven't had anything to write about. On the contrary, I've had so many blog worthy experiences since my last post that I feel like my head is spinning.
Well, to start with I went on vacation with my family last week. A good time was had by all. We went to the beach and stayed in this apartment my dad rented for a week. It had this wall made out of glass that offers you a perfect view of the ocean. Everyday, we'd start off with breakfast at some cozy pancake house, then we'd go to the beach and splash wildly around the ocean. Once the sand in our bathing suits got to be too much (we all hate the feeling of being covered by sand in my family), we'd head over to the b-e-a-u-tiful pool. Then we'd all go back to the apartment and shower up and head out to eat. We ate at some of the most interesting restaurants. For example, there was one restuarant that centered on world cuisine. It was this huge place full of buffet style tables and each row of buffet tables represented a different culutre. It was so informational and delicious:)
The morning after we got back, was spent loading my dad's truck up with all my jank for school. The drive took about two hours due to traffic. ew. Once we got to my room I started unloading everything and enthusiastically setting my stuff up. Then after some swift kisses on the cheek, my parents and brother left. I had the whole apartment to myself, because 2 of my 4 roommates didn't move in until the next day. So, I spent the first night of my sophomore year in solitude, soaking up the feeling of independence. I'd post pictures, but I left my camera at home.
The next day, I walked all around the campus to reacquaint myself with it. Then I stopped by the bookstore and picked up my ridiculously over priced textbooks that I probably should've purchased on amazon. *sigh* Well, as I was leaving the store, heavy bag in each hand, my roommate cynthia called me, and somehow I managed to talk and walk with all those books at the same time. She let me know she was in the apartment and I raced back to see her and jump around with joy, because that is how much we love being around each other. We spent the next couple of hours unloading her car and setting her stuff up. Once we finished our other roommate arrived and we started all over again!
Since then, I've done many things, but the most memorable would be waiting in line for tickets to my school's very first football game. For some reason my school just never had a team, but all of a sudden it does and people are going crazzzy with excitement. The tickets went on sale at 10am, but a huge line of people had already gathered the night before with tents! yes, tents! I did not camp out. But I did wait in the miles of line the next morning. I was so worried for weeks that I wouldn't get a ticket to what would surely be one of the biggets events of our school year. But I did! Mission was accomplished. It only took standing in line for freaking forever in a corwded and sweltering atmosphere outside.
Besides the football tickets my friends and I have basically been doing cliche things like getting drunk, smoking hookah, playing cranium, and eating sushi.
I have so many plans for this semester. I'm going to make it amazing. I signed up for our college's club soccer team. Hopefully, I'll make it. And I've considered joining a sorority. All of this is nerve racking yet exciting. And I'm still writing for the school's newspaper.
