I am so excited to be back and blogging for the new semester. I hope you had a wonderful break and that you are ready for Spring 2017!
Like every beginning of every semester, things can always get a little crazy and we find things that are beyond our control. Getting to class on time and finding the right building are always the struggle on the first week.
My first two weeks consisted of being sick, forgetting an assignment at home and some pretty ugly bruises.
It started a week before January 23rd. I woke up not feeling 100%, and I felt a little under the weather. The runny nose and sneezing never stopped. Sometimes there are real things that laughter can’t cure. So after a couple days, I decided I needed real medicine. I went to CVS and bought Dayquil/Nyquil. My dad went to buy LOTS of ginger to make ginger tea (yuck!). You’d think i’d be better a few days after all of that but not in my case. I seem to always have long sick days. So I spent my first two weeks of this semester sniffing and coughing and feeling like an eternal patient. But as of right now, I’m feeling much, much better than before. I think I might be completely healthy again in a few days (phew)! Except maybe for the bruises on my arm I got from Volleyball. I had no idea a 50-minute PE class would send me to the security office asking for an icepack. It’s not that I’m not familiar with the sport. It’s actually my favorite sport I played growing up. But I guess I shouldn’t have waited years to hit a volleyball again!
I’m normally a careful person. I never forget where I leave my keys and I always make sure my phone is in my purse or in my hand. But today was an exception. I was going to finish my essay at the computer lab this morning when I realized I didn’t save the document in my flash drive. I didn’t have a lot of time so I had to make a decision fast whether I should write a new one or finish the one I started and print it at home. So I drove on almost empty for 20 minutes, finished and then printed my essay, and was able to come to class on time (I’m convinced this happened so I could have something interesting to write about for my blog). From now on, I will make sure I save everything on my flashdrive before leaving the house.
Sometimes I feel like I don’t have anything interesting to blog about. But when I give it time, life always offers something unexpected. All of a sudden, I have something that’s not routine in my life. A mishap. Or maybe some good news. Something that upsets me or something that makes my day. I like to incorporate both in my blogs because that’s real life and I like to be able to relate to other students. That being said, I hope everyone has had a great first two weeks of Spring semester and if you’re a little sick like I am, I do hope you feel better!
