First Day of College!

So...I finished my first day of college today at 4:45 p.m.

Yes, it was quite a relief mostly because I wanted to go home and eat!

This is how my day played out:

1. Got up at 6:30 (very early for me!). Got ready to leave for campus.

2. Left for campus around 8:00. Encountered some slight parking problems, but found a spot at the top level of East Deck 2 (approximately around 8:20). My car baked in the sun for the whole duration of the day...meaning it was an oven by the time I got back!

3. Headed out for Sanford and Moore dorms to help out with the survey booth. Asked several people directions to the buildings...all were quite helpful. Proof: I got there! :)

4. I read my Bible for about 30 minutes while I waited for Charlotte to arrive with the rest of the team.

5. Started setting up the booths around 9:15. Blocked students' path so that they would fill out the survey to win an iTunes giftcard (good for them), and we could add them to our contacts for possible outreach (good for us). They also got a FREE popsicle of their choice color or flavor. haha!

6. Left for my FIRST class at 10:45 with Stephanie Hellman keeping me from getting lost. Ran into Chad Harris and Joe Hawkins on the way. Arrived at Fretwell on time! Yes! Had my math class...funny teacher. I think I'm going to like this class. *gasp* Did I just say that I might like a math class?! Oh, yes. (Had nothing to eat.)

7. After math, I immediately set out for my next destination since I only had 15 minutes to get there! Asked a couple people how to get to the building. Got to the class in the nick of time! And I'm in Japanese class...yes, you read it right: Japanese class. The teacher has the thickest accent imaginable! I understood "study guide" and a few more words. But I did learn to say "How do you do?" and "glad to meet you" in Japanese. I'm excited! So class got over in 30 minutes! I had an hour to kill...conversed with some classmates. (Had nothing to eat.)

8. Then off to the Smith building for English. Nice teacher...but kind of crude. :( (Had nothing to eat.)

9. Then 15 minutes to get to my next class: Liberal Studies 1202 - World War 2. Good final exams in this class!!! So happy...:) (Had nothing to eat.)

10. Wow! This is getting long...please bear with me...I'm almost...done! Left campus and drove to the overcrowded Gray's Bookstore to pick up my math and Japanese books. Stood in line for 20 minutes...getting hungrier by the second.

11. Drove through much traffic, but got home safe and sound!

12. This is the most important: I FINALLY GOT TO EAT!!!!

Thanks for reading, I hope I didn't bore you to death. :)
