What Have I Been Up to?

I hope everyone else is doing great and keeping up with their goals!

I started college this week and here’s a few things I’ve learned:

  • Be at least 30 minutes early to class if you don’t have a very early morning class.  Otherwise, you will have to walk a long ways to get to the school because parking is limited.
  • Ending up sitting in the wrong class on the first day isn’t THAT embarrassing.  Just get up and walk out. Trust me, there will be other kids walking into your classes not knowing where they are either.
  • Notice the closest doors to your classrooms ASAP.  You’ll be thankful when the cold weather hits, or you’re running late.
  • Be at least 10-15 minutes early to class.  No you won’t be the only one there!  
  • COFFEE IS YOUR BEST FRIEND – especially if you have morning classes
  • Cafeteria food looks great, and it’s so exciting to eat “college food” but it’s too expensive!  Bring your own!  Seriously, I didn’t bring food my first day and I had 2 hours between classes that I spent in the cafeteria studying and I was starving!
  • Don’t expect to leave campus for lunch, you won’t get your spot back.  Stay put!
  • Just talk to people!  It’s not that bad.
  • Make sure you get ahead.  You’ll be thankful for it later.
  • Order your books early.  You don’t want to be without your books, or late to classes because you had to wait in that god awful line on the first day.

Okay, it was more than a few!  But hey, that’s how I roll 😉

So far college is going good!  The only part that’s killing me is the reading… SO MUCH READING.  I’m not used to it because we never read our textbooks in high school.  Seriously, I’m not even sure why they bothered buying them.  

Great to be blogging again,


and the Doom Starts Here…

It’s my last week of summer and I have so much to do!  On the brightside I get to pick up my textbooks this week.  School starts next week and I’m pretty psyched!  However, my math class got cancelled so now I’m stuck in a relationships, marriage and family psychology class.  Who knows how THAT will go!  I was pretty bummed to see that none of my medical or science classes were available but I guess I can do that next semester.  

I have my bag all packed and I’m ready for the first day!  I really need to stay on top of things and get awesome grades.  I’m an overachiever as most of you know so I’m shooting for straight A’s.  What do ya think?  Can I do it?  Let’s see!

That’s it for now,


It’s Graduation Day!

The day has finally come and it’s graduation day!  

I had college registration at 9 a.m. which went alright.  (Side note: I bumped into an old friend at registration which was nice!  I’m pretty proud of myself too because normally I’m extremely shy and don’t like going to places I haven’t really been alone for the first time but I did!) I’m actually kind of excited because a lot of the classes I can take for generals are also associated with my degree I am going for.  For anyone who doesn’t know, I’m going to my community college for general ed and then transferring to the University for Dietetics.  Lots of science classes!

I’m also excited that my college just got a new wellness center and the exercise area is included in your tuition so I think Monday’s are going to be my cardio days because I have class from 8-10 a.m. and then I don’t have another class till Noon.  So that will be nice!  Plus who doesn’t like having an excuse to wear fitness clothes 😉

Now I can officially go school shopping when college season starts and know what I’m looking for!  Score! (I love school shopping).

You won’t ever know what you can achieve without taking the first step,
