college life

I live in a ten foot square room that's infested with crickets.

But, on the bright side, the campus is beautiful. Here's a shot I got one glorious evening:

When the classrooms are about 60 degrees but outside it's about 100 degrees, it's difficult to know how to dress for the day.

It's not as hard academically as I thought it would be. But then again, I'm taking all basic Gen.-eds. Since I don't have many of my core classes yet, I probably have my more challenging courses to look forward to. Yippee.

I've discovered that you can be surrounded by friends and still feel really lonely. The hardest part of college is giving friendship time to develop deeply. Slowly but surely things are getting better. But through this process of making completely new relationships, my relationship with God has deepened considerably. He remains faithful when everything around me changes!

The rate at which freshman couples are formed is astounding.

Potatoes. Pasta. Fried food. Carbs galore. That's what the cafeteria food basically consists of. Praise Jesus for salad and cereal because that's what I'm surviving on!

I didn't know this before, but the way I alleviate stress is through the piano. I'm discovering so much about myself here!

There's only about 500 students on campus here, and I love it. I've gotten to the point where I recognize almost everyone here. We're like one huge family here. It's awesome.

That's it for now!
