New Start…Spring?

category icon Posted in General

Not quite spring weather, huh? Hey Hawkeyes! In case you don’t know, it’s really cold here.

By cold I mean like 2 degrees. At least that was the temperature on the first day of class. It was so nice before we left for break. Well, actually it was kinda cold then too, but not like this. Then it was just windy cold, now it’s just cold. Perfect for the first day of class.

Oh! You want to know about my first day of the new semester? Well, how about I tell you about coming back to campus after break first. To begin with, I way over-packed. At least that’s what I thought when I was carrying everything into the dorm (or more my family and I, thanks to my family for the help). And I had the same thought when I was unpacking¬†everything. We’ll see how I feel as the weeks go by. I’m not sure if it just felt like more because my winter clothes are bulkier than the clothes I took back from the fall semester. The most awesome part of moving back in was seeing all my friends. I wasn’t able to see any of my college friends over break, so a lot of the free time I’ve had has been spent catching up with everyone. It’s been so amazing getting back with everyone. I came back Sunday evening so I had all of Monday to organize, unpack, and hang out with friends. Result: A lot of good laughs, hugs, and smiles.

Then Tuesday began classes. My first class was 11:00 so I had plenty of time to get up, get ready, organize my desk, and go to breakfast with friends before going to find my class. Some of the buildings are a little confusing with different doors, floors that don’t connect, and stairways that don’t go all through the floors. So I left for all my classes early so I could find the right room. I had 4 classes today and they all went very well. I’m excited about a couple of them, and in the words of my honors primetime professor, cautiously optimistic about a couple others. My professors/TA’s all seem pretty interesting and eager to help. The semester is off to a pretty good start. Let’s hope it continues for the rest of the week. I’ll try to blog after my second day of class too.

Talk to you later! Stay warm!
