I gotta get back to school...

This week has been so crazy! I started school last week, but now I work, go to school, study, eat, and sleep. I forgot how exhausting school can be, although I think most of it has to do with the fact that I'm working 20 hours a week now, on top of taking 15 hours of classes, and then studying.

As I type this now I'm in the library at school because I'm waiting for an English society social to begin later on this evening. The draw of free pizza (and thus one less night to cook a pitiful college meal) is only part of the reason why I'm going (although undoubtedly a large one). I've also decided it might be good to socialize a bit more outside of my apartments. Last year, my freshman year, I had to settle into school, get used to it. Now is when I really want to get involved. And, as so far my plan is to graduate next spring (in 2013) I've been hit with the fact that I don't have much time left in college and these once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

So, whirlwind of a year is upcoming for me! I'm doing my best to keep up with writing, blogging, and reading (outside of class) but if I put study, school, work, and a bit of fun (outside of the computer) ahead of'll have to forgive me.

On a side note: Borders going out of business sale? 70-90% off? I know I should be mourning the loss of the chain as well as the book-lover jobs, but my scrimping college student is doing a bit of a happy dance at the prices these books should be.

(P.S. Did you notice I used a lot of parenthesis in this post? I think I have a love affair with them--don't tell the dashes!)


  1. Parenthesis for the win! I'm addicted to them as well. Meet everyone and do everything you can in college. It is an awesome time. Best of luck hitting the books and such. And woohoo for free pizza!

  2. What is an English society social? People from the English department? Do tell.

  3. How exciting! Enjoy yourself and don't get too bogged down with work.

  4. Your last paragraph cracked me up! I have issues with em-dashes, myself.

    Good luck juggling all that! School's been messing with my blogging and writing, and I'm not even as busy as it sounds like you are.

    And as for Borders -- I think I've gone there more times in the past month or so than any other time in my life....

  5. @jonyangorg Not just English department. Anyone interested in books and reading can join. In fact, most people I met there had a different major than English.

    @WoollyBird Yes. Praise the man who came up with AP tests!
