It’s over! I have officially survived my first semester in college. Overall not so bad. I must warn you this week’s blog won’t be too long, since not much has happened besides studying for finals…
I wish I could say these past two weeks have been amazing. I wish I could say I’m loving this freezing cold weather. Coming from a tropical climate doesn’t make things too easy. And they said Florida was supposed to be warm…Tonight’s low: 29 degrees. Monday night—25. The only thing that is missing is some snow!
I am grateful that I only have three finals, however. Some people have five! I already survived my EGR-115 test. It went great, I suppose. 91% for a few hours’ work isn’t too shabby. Next up: MA-241 and PS-150 (that’s Calc I and physics I for all of you out there). I can’t say I’m ready for physics, though. There is just something about kinematics and I that just doesn’t work together. Manageable, but annoying.
The highlight of my week, though, was going to Downtown Disney (yes, yet again…have I mentioned my love for it? Well…you will hear a lot about Disney). It was such a great way to relax before hell week. Dinner at Paradiso 37. Yummy Salvadoran food with Ghirardelli ice cream after. SO good! Makes me so excited to go back to San Francisco and visit Ghirardelli Square again!
And I bought a Mickey snuggie for myself. I must say that is pretty neat stuff (at least for me).
So that’s it for me! I better get to packing up my things to go home! Well, and study too…Happy holidays to everyone out there, and hope you get your applications to Riddle in soon, future Eagles! Good luck to those of you graduating this December, and for those that will make it by May—same for you (you’re almost there!).
It is FREEZING here!!!! Well for Florida it is freezing at least! I have had at least 3 layers on every day this week! AH!
My week this week began with a test at 8:00 am Monday consisting of a project, a physics test, a physics lab final, a weather test, a math test, and me trying very hard not to go insane!!! This week is also the first week flight team picks back up since Regionals, so that will be fun!!! I am excited to get back on top of things. If you all have read anything about our flight team published by people at the school, it is to their knowledge apparently that nationals are in San Jose in May, well they aren’t. They are actually in Saint Louis.
I don’t remember if I have mentioned it but there are some roommate problems within our suite… so one of the girls is moving out. Actually to my knowledge she was supposed to leave already but she’s not gone yet… I am not sure what the hold up is to tell you the truth. We thought everything would be fine and dandy after our first little meeting with the RA and RD but…. NOPE! It’s almost impossible not to have trouble with 8 girls in one room. A little life update as well… 6 of the 8 of us came here with boyfriends from home.. now 5 of the 8 of us have new boyfriends haha– and one of us is in the works of having a new one. My how things can change.
As stressful as things have gotten with classes and tests and all, I am still trying my hardest and won’t trade Riddle in for any other school. It’s amazing still!!!! Ohh yeah and the shuttle launch = AWESOME! Even though I have seen them before because I am from Florida.. they are still amazing every time you see them! Have a GREAT Thanksgiving!!! and I will be back in touch with you all after the break… when I have a major report due :-( AHHH
