College So Far + Life Update

Hello, friends!

Yes, I did go around campus and force my friend take pictures of me. No, I am not ashamed. 😉

I hope you all are well! I have so much going on in my life, but I wanted to check-in and tell you what I’m up to!

So, it has been about a month since I moved to Austin, and started this incredible journey of college. It has been exciting, overwhelming, and new. Very new. I have a new room, a new group of people around me, a new life. Everything is so unfamiliar.

I have been doing quite a bit of reflecting — because as you know I am too introspective. I need to get out of my own head sometimes.

Anyway, the only way to become stronger emotionally, intellectually, and physically is to be in an uncomfortable situation, so I am trying my best to maintain a positive outlook on everything.

Aside from the life adjustment, I have been LOVING my classes. I have gained such a new point of view on things I never thought about. Basically, my sociology textbook is my favorite book at the moment. Also, I know more about the radio than I know about my iPhone, so if you want to know who founded the radio (ahem: Guglielmo Marconi — no I didn’t call him macaroni for fun). 😉

As far as organizations and clubs go the crazy person in me applied for too many positions. I figured that I would be rejected by the majority, and then maybe get one. But, no. I got all three that I applied for. It’s insane. All of these positions are big-time commitments, but I am incredibly excited to be a part of such amazing organizations. I’m going to go more in-depth in this soon. I want to film the first-semester recap, so I’ll talk about all the details then!

College life is weird. You have ultimate control. You can do homework or not. You can go to class or not. You can party or not. I need to learn to balance myself. I have been focused academically, but I want to make sure that I experience college — and not through the library, only.

Overall, here’s my little recap! College is exciting. Scary. But I have no words to describe how grateful I am for this opportunity.
