So I thought I made this post but turns out I just saved it as a draft. So I have made the move into my apartment. I started my assistantship Tuesday. The first day was slow but boy has it picked up. So many things going on and I’m helping with it and in charge of so many side projects it’s crazy! I can’t wait until school starts! Technically don’t have a class that I physically have to be to until next weds but I do have online classes that need to be logged into starting Monday. One of my professors was super late posting required text materials and I ended up having to not only purchase it from the bookstore due to not having any more funds on myself for it but I had to buy a new one because the bookstore can’t even find anymore used copies to order. The professor just gave them the book order this week! The book orders were due back in May! It is for a reason obviously! Not much left for the pickings from whole sellers when you are ordering when all universities and colleges are going back to school. I also need a beepless stop watch. I’m hoping I don’t need that for awhile.
Meet one roommate. Pretty nice but I don’t think she will be here much. Another moves in Saturday. The fourth one is a freshman. I’m still processing that last bit of information. I was hoping I would never have to deal with a freshman again…unless I was teaching one. It’s just you are at two different points in your life. I would advise anyone to make sure that when they are a freshman in college to room with a freshman! That way you both can be all “I’m excited about college etc etc” together. The most you can get from me is advice and let’s face it, you don’t want to hear my advice. I rather you go out and do silly freshman stuff and learn on your own. I don’t want to take those learning experiences, a lot of them bad experiences but learning ones, from you. We can’t even go to the same clubs! I’m not even at the club point in my life anymore. Much more of a bar/lounge/hanging at a friends house type but you get the idea. I hope she still gets her freshman experience though. Everyone needs one. Sets the tone for a lot of things.
Anyhow I’m excited for school to start. I am meeting a lot of professors and I’m even more excited about trying to get a chance to teach some courses.
