November 29, 2016: What Was I Thinking Promising to Post Every Fifteen Days
It’s hard to believe that I have less than two weeks until first semester comes to a close. Honestly, it’s still hard to believe that I’m actually in college, doing the college things, attending college classes, working on college homework, living with my college roommate. Basically, existing, but college edition.
I’ve definitely learned and grown a lot so far, but I don’t really have time to process it at the moment, because, well, finals are right around the corner.
So this latest addition to the Freshman Fifteen is going to be short and sweet, featuring some observations and updates:
- College is a lot like magic in Harry Potter: it’s awesome, but it doesn’t make all of your problems go away.
- Speaking of Harry Potter, I am still rereading Prisoner of Azkaban. I’m hoping to finish rereading the series over Christmas break.
- I ran a half-marathon on Thanksgiving! That was fun and also long.
- College fashion is wonderful in that it is not wonderful at all; the vast majority of people look like slobs the vast majority of the time, which makes everyone’s lives so much easier.
- Detouring through Griffin to LaGrange, Georgia, makes the drive back to Auburn a heck of a lot longer but is pretty much worth it for some sweet backroads.
- Country music is not nearly as abundant here as I expected, which is such a blessing.
- Find friends who will cook according to your dietary restrictions when you get together. Thank Jesus for them often.
