Day in the Life of a Returned College Student
It's going to take me a while to get the hang of how to do them. So it may seem like a recap, but I promise the more I do these the better I will get!
You're actually getting a 2 day experience as I have different classes on Mon. Wed. Fri vs Tue. Thur.
I've been sleeping in this week.
I know the shame!
I am still babying my knee so why wake up earlier than I have to. So yeah 7 or 9 am depending on the day.
But I won't lie, I've missed my sunset or sunrise runs each day!
Monday night I had this brilliant idea to save money on air conditioner costs and sleep with just the windows open.
I opened them earlier, and I should have taken the hint at 11pm and my apartment at around 85 degrees that it was going to be a bad idea.
But lets be honest sometimes I'm not that bright...
Short version, I got very little sleep and it took me nearly an entire day to get the apartment cooled off again,
Yeah, won't be trying that again for a few months!
I went to my Digital Design class the first morning this week, I was so lost within less than 2 minutes. Yeah I am one of the only people in the class who have never used Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and a few other programs.
I saw people taking shapes and making the below cowboy in minutes while I was still trying to figure out how to get the shape pieces.
The other project, looked so simple.... But it took me forever!
It took me 4 hours that afternoon to make a couple of stupid designs like we were instructed to do in class. I am not afraid to admit that I got back and pulled up You Tube videos to watch others teach me how. Thank Goodness for You Tube!!!!!
Let's just say, the graphics on my blog might NOT be getting a vast improvement any time soon. I think I need to take the weekend and just play with the programs and figure things out!
My apartment bathroom in the morning gets to like 95 degree's before 9am and I discovered while driving home one night that the frosted windows in them don't really block much as I could see right in my neighbors window.
So to keep the risk of me giving passerbys a peep show each time I take a shower at night, and well to help bring the temperature down I decided to make curtains.
I hit up a fabric store and had these done and hanging for exactly $7.50 and that includes the rod. They only took me about 10 minutes to make! I even impressed myself, LOL
Here is the before and after. Oh this is when the sun wasn't shining in the room, this is how bright it used to get in the evening in the shade. So much better now!
In one of my classes we were asked to write a short essay with a few questions. I happen to be watching something political on the news so I just did it on that for Monday.
Just my luck I am now stuck with this topic for a while, as tonight I just spent 4 hours writing a research paper on a subject I never cared to know so much about.
In case your wondering the original topic was, How the Media Weakens Society with Misleading Opinion Polls on the Candidates...
I would have never done this if I thought for a minute I'd have to spend more than 5 minutes in class presenting it...
In my Event Management class we are required to work on a project. Well let me simplify I have to work with other students to create a glow in the dark frisbee event.
I'm paired with one of the Football players, who could careless and is always gone for games. A girl who just wants to flirt with the football player and rarely shows up. Another guy, who like me doesn't want to do it but we will.
So he emails me last night and is like, so I think it's just going to be us, LOL - My thoughts exactly!
I tell ya, that is just luck in the group project pairing system!
Last night I hurried to get all my homework done. I decided to take a break from school and homework and go see The Hunchback of Notre Dame Musical at Tuacahn. I had bought season tickets there with my sister for last Christmas and I still had one show left to see.
I didn't even care that I was going alone, to be honest I had a great time and it was a really nice break!
The above picture is the entrance, the Amphitheatre stage is right up against that beautiful red rock!
Speaking of outdoors, we had a little cool front move through and the temps last night in that little red canyon the theater is in dropped into the lower 70's.
Let me just say you know you live in a desert when over half the people around you find that so cold they are wearing puffy winter coats or jackets of some sort.
Okay, okay I'll admit I bought a jacket just in case, but it was hidden in my purse where it stayed... Well where it stayed until the wind kicked up in the 2nd half and I may have put it on...
Yikes, I am already a wimpy temperature girl!
So that is a day in the life of my past two days...
Okay, yes my college life is a little lame this week, but it will get better I (for you) I have some very embarrassing oral reports coming up and I am going to attempt going to a singles church Sunday to meet others...Yes good times, LOL LOL
