Honestly its very overwhelming. Extremely. All I can think about it how in the world am I ever going to complete a semester.
That probably partially due to freshman orientation. The professors idea of keeping everyone super busy so they're not homesick, but really its exhausting everyone out of their minds.
Let me just say, I am majorly looking forward to going home this weekend. (hopefully) I am going to need a break and a chance to recharge before coming back to campus. That is the introvert coming out in me. But I have never been around or talked to so many people constantly in my entire life. I really should have been prepared better for this.
But on the other side, I have met some fun people in my class. Yesterday I was waiting for my friend/cousin to get out of her meeting and I was wondering around looking for something to do while I waited. I was walking towards the door and I saw outside two people sitting just chilling and talking. Well the guy I had met earlier because he was in my orientation group, but the girl I didn't know. But I was like hey, I'll try something new and just put myself out there. So I went and sat down beside them and started chatting. Well it turned into a very entertaining conversation that several more people joined in on and when Rebekah got out of her meeting she joined us too! (though I think she was a bit shocked that I was talking to random people. I think I surprised myself!) So that was my one entertaining accomplishment of the week. We'll see if it happens again...
Classes started today. I had three things I had to be at right in a row from 10:00 to 1:00. They went well I think. I mean I don't know. I've never sat in a class before. It was kind of overwhelming and scary and claustrophobic, but I felt accomplished too. I'm kind of nervous about how much homework I'm going to get. I really don't know, and I really hope it doesn't become and overwhelming load. (I think that is the word of this post. Overwhelming.)
So I'm at college. Can't say I'm loving it. But I'm hoping I'll become accustomed to it.
Mostly though, I just hope I survive the week.
