School is back in session and let me tell you, I’m ready for Fall fashion. So needless to say, I was so excited to finally be able to try out some of the outfits in my closet. I have some really great sweaters and some outerwear that I’ve been dying to wear out. That’s all fine and dandy except…it’s like a thousand degrees outside.
My goodness, it’s been freakin’ hot! I’ve had to modify some of my looks to deal with the heat. Don’t get me wrong, I love sunny southern California and fun in the sun, but I have classes in the morning and I’m out and about during the peak heat moments. Well, I’ve been trying to make the best of it. Even though school’s started, it still kind of feels like summer. I went swimming over at Jessica’s recently and I’ve been able to have some really great times. It’s kind of weird that I’ve had some really great summer moments when it’s coming to an end. Well, I think I’ll just enjoy them either way.
It’s been tough to register for classes this fall. I got most of the classes I need, but there are a few that I haven’t had luck with. Rejection feels so strange! It’s awful. But here’s what I foresee happening, based on my experiences, the professor who rejected me will later fall in love with me. LOL
I still need to buy textbooks and a few materials. Oh! I’m taking yoga this semester! I’m so excited! I’ve never taken a yoga class and I’ve always wanted to. I need to pick out a cute yoga mat and little yoga mat sling. So cute.
So after an awkward first week of school, sitting through introductions and reviewing syllabi, I’m glad it’s out of the way and we can really get into the material and get some work done. I think I have one of those personalities that I like getting “in the zone” and there’s no stopping me.
There are some interesting things I’ve noticed this semester about my school:
- There are many more attractive people on campus than ever before! Every day as I’m walking around I always think, “Wow, what happened? Eye candy.”
- While noticing how many hot guys are on campus, I also noticed that it seems like most of the black guys at my school are in sports. Why is it that most black guys at my school are part of the athletics department?
- Men’s athletics at school are made up of mostly black guys and white guys. And a few Latinos, of course. Most of women’s athletics are mostly white girls. LOL Just strange.
- I’m an honors student, and being in an honors class has its pros and cons. It’s a smaller setting, so there’s a greater opportunity to have discussions about the material and really understand and learn about what’s going on in the class. It’s also nice to not feel like the smartest student in the room.There are a lot of really bright minds in the honors classes and I often find myself challenged by my peers, which is great. As far as the disadvantages of being in an honors class…well, how can I put this…some of my peers, although very smart, aren’t exactly what you’d describe as…cool. Or social. I think there are some people that are just so smart that they aren’t concerned with being cool or looking “fashionable” or whatever since they’ll be ruling the world later on. [I, of course would rather do it all!] I’m really not too concerned with what everyone’s wearing, but it is a bit strange having socially awkward people in a small setting.
I’m glad the semester has begun and I know it’s going to be a great one! I like school, so I’m excited for the next sixteen weeks and I’m especially excited for yoga. The eye candy isn’t too bad either.
