Last weekend was my first weekend home. It was definitely weird going back, especially to the football game & grand march. But it was good to see all my friends again, especially the seniors! Because I missed them! It's hard to believe that I probably won't be going home until Thanksgiving, at least I have my October Party to look forward to!
But one thing I didn't miss was the drama. And it's quite sad, I thought it would all be over once we graduated. But, I guess I was wrong. People change. And I guess I just need to accept that fact and quit trying to hold on.
Classes are going well. I had a whole book due today, and I didn't start reading it until last night, and that was pretty stupid. And then I get to class this morning, and the prof. says that we won't discuss the book until Wednesday. So I stayed up late for nothing. Oh well, that will teach me.
I've also learned that the best time to do laundry is on a Monday night! And some of the washing machines are still free :) According to mom, I'm cheap, but hey, why pay for it when you don't have to? lol.
Well, I'm off to bed.
Don't you love the randomness of my updates?

Life Lesson #1. Don't have an open can of Mt. Dew sitting by your laptop when you reach for your dictionary.

College life...
Well. I got this blog so I could comment on Jill's pictures, but I thought maybe since I had it I could use it to keep everyone updated about my awesome college life.
I survived my 2nd week of classes, and my first night without my roommate... lol. It wasn't so bad, it's actually nice to have the room to myself. I have made a few new friends, one girl I eat meals with a lot, but she's gone on a youth retreat this weekend. And another girl that I met in my speech class, I think I'm going to the movies with her & her roommate tonight.
Classes are going pretty well. I had my first quiz the other day in my Women's Studies class. I was totally not prepared for it, so that'll teach me. My other classes include Pre-Calc (which is pretty much a major review since I took it junior year), Theatre Apprec. (my prof. is hilarious, he really makes the class interesting), History (man, I have never taken so many notes in my life!), Speech (I already had to give one! You'd think that being in 4N6 for 4 years would have gotten me used to talking in front of people. It hasn't!), and a freshman only course, UWL 100. I have met some new friends in that class, and made the mistake of telling them that I like to correct papers. So we'll have to see how many people come knocking on my door!
Hm. What else about college? Living on the 4th floor is quite the adventure. Everyone says 4th floor people have the best quads on campus, and I'm beginning to believe it! I did something to my ankle on move-in day, so I've been gimping around campus for the past couple of weeks, but it's starting to get better. The girls on my floor are pretty crazy, it's very entertaining.
The food here is good, almost too good, I can definitely see where the freshman 15 comes from! But my goal is to lose that, if possible, especially with the awesome rec center up here!
I also did laundry! There was something wrong with the hook up between the machine and the money, so laundry was free last weekend, and boy, everyone took advantage of it. We had tie-dyed shirts early in the week, and they needed to be washed by themselves, so I'm glad I didn't have to waste $1 on that! And no, all my clothes didn't turn out pink, they all came out in their rightful colors. But I did shrink one of my shirts :(
La Crosse is definitely a big change from Fennimore. I'm still trying to get used to the traffic outside of my window at night, and the sirens that go by. And, the ROTC running by my window at 6:30 in the morning yelling their cadence! It is nice though, we have a football field right next to our dorm. I can hear the band practice, and that does get a little depressing at times, considering they just left for a Packer game & a weekend in Green Bay.
But yes, I believe that is all I have to say for now. I'm going to try to find a job, maybe even see if I can get on the staff of the school newspaper.
Kudos to anyone who took the time to read this!
