This year has gone well so far. It's the beginning of the second semester and I've already felt like I was going to die. 18 credit hours is definitely a challenge, but I'm going to prove those stupid advisors wrong, that I'm a freshman, and I CAN pass all my classes without breaking a sweat. I might break a little bit of one, but nothing too significant. School has been crazy, I've had one paper, one computer literacy assignment and three tests already, along with multiple quizzes. I just have to take each class one at a time and finish things according to when they're due. I've just taken everything in stride and have been able to keep up nicely. I hope that goes the same for the rest of the year.
I've found that I'm extremely happy here now. It may be due in part to the fact that John moved up here at the beginning of this semester, but I think it's also that I'm at a point in my life where I feel content. I don't feel as though I need more or less of one thing. I feel like Tallahassee is finally my home. I'm happy with my friends and I welcome more friends. I'm so excited to call people and ask them to hang out with me. I'm so excited to find out what people are up to and what their days have been like. It's such a good feeling. I also just feel good about myself. I know I'm not a perfect ten, but I know that I'm on the road to improvement. I'm trying to watch what I eat and eat healthier, while going to the gym and working out. I'm just HAPPY.
Living situations for next year: I've realized that I need to look into where I'm going to live, because I'm definitely not living in a dorm again. The original plan was to live with John, but I'm not sure if that's what I want to do right now. I think that it would be best for us to live separately for a little bit. I don't know. I kind of want my own things and my own bed set and my own place. The only other option I've been offered is to live with our friend Chase. Living with her would mean having to pay for different kinds of bills. With John I would only have to pay for utilities and internet and cable. So I don't know. I need to talk to my mom about it all and sort things out. I need to get a job first to determine what I can and can't pay for.
That brings up my mom's visit next weekend. I'm so excited that she's coming to visit. I have no idea why or what she's thinking, just randomly planning a trip to come see me, but hey, I'm not complaining. She's being kind of mysterious about it and not telling me everything about why she's coming. It's her birthday the Wed after Valentine's day so I don't know why she's surprising me. I should be surprising her. I'm planning on making her dinner and a chocolate cake for her birthday. Hmm...
I guess that's al for now.
