So, second semester freshman year is going to be quite different.
We knew we would be saying goodbye to Kaylie. She is on Summer/Fall track, so she wouldn't be rejoining us for Winter.
What we were not aware of was the fact that Anny would not be returning for Winter semester. Family stuff came up and she felt she should stay in Washington for the semester.
What can you do?
So, this past week, Sara and I returned to a much different dorm.
We are already missing them a ton. I love these ladies so much and it is so weird not to have them here with me!
However, we will all be reunited Fall '09!!!
Anywho... Kayla is our new addition! She is a very nice balance of upbeat, fun, and laid-backness.. She has a lot of family here (mainly cousins), so she is in and out a lot. We haven't gotten a great chance to get to know her, but I can tell we will be getting along superbly in no time!
Sara is fantastic. I love living with her. It's a lot more laid-back this semester, and she helps a lot with that. Her beau is Zach. He is an RM... nuff said.
No, he is a really cool guy and I don't mind having him around all the time. Just a really great guy. (P.S. He requested that I blog about him).
Classes seem very interesting so far. I am taking:
Basic Music Theory
Origin of Life, Earth, and the Universe
The Developing World
Book of Mormon Part II
Business Law and the Legal Environment
Pretty crazy line-up if you ask me. I am going to be learning a ton this semester. Already, I know I have at least double the reading from last semester, which is good. I am very motivated. No monkey-business this semester! I think I may go to the library every once in a while or something :)
So, here is my winter semester philosophy/plan.
I'm not going to be social. I don't feel like it. I'm going to go to a TON of instrumental/theatrical/vocal performances and such. Otherwise, I'm gonna be a hermit. It's too cold outside. I don't want to date anyone. I want to read a ton of books. I want to kick butt this semester.
I want to serve a mission. I don't want to be a typical LDS girl. I want to see the world. I want to serve. I want to explore. I want to figure out who I am. I want to work on becoming the best person I can be.
