Wow. Hey guys. It’s been a while, I know. I have been ridiculously busy, but I think I have finally gotten into the swing of things!
So what have I been up to lately? Well besides homework, midterms, rowing and hanging out with friends.. I celebrated my birthday & my roommate’s birthday, raced in a regatta this past weekend, and explored the mall nearby. In other words, I have been having a blast here
College is very different from high school. There are less classes in a day and the material goes further in-depth (more interesting too..). Class material is also more understandable, which is most likely due to how well the professors teach here. Lastly, I really like being able to get to class in 5 minutes (on my Penny board) rather than my 30 minute commute to high school. Ok. So I really am enjoying college. It can be stressful at times, but I have learned to manage that stress
Some say that a photo can be worth 1,000 words. So here are some pictures from the last few weeks:
The weekend before my birthday, my mom and sister flew out to see me! They also took me out for my favorite food in the entire world… Japanese food!!! It was so nice to celebrate my birthday with them and my roommate (Kelby)
We also decorated our door for Halloween that weekend. We love decorating
Our CF (Grace) has the same birthday as me, so I decorated her door with my friend Megan.
And my friends decorated my door
They also went out and bought me a birthday cupcake along with a few other things!
(I was a bomber pilot from Top Gun)
(Me & my roomie, she was dressed as a frat boy)
Our housing building had a newspaper fashion show contest
My first time eating at a food truck
I got a waffle with bacon on it.. it was amazing.
Some of the nicest people around
I finally got a pair of rainbows.
We ventured into the Disney Store. I really liked this pooh bear stuffed animal.. until I saw the price tag. yeeeesh.
Looking at Disney’s merchandise for its newest movie: Frozen. I can’t wait to see it
My friends watching Mulan with little kids
My first college regatta
Loading the boats onto the trailer.
De-rigging our boats. Aka getting them ready to travel.
Where we practice, bad pic.. sorry guys!
What the inside of a boat looks like
Supporting our teammates when they get off of the water (at regatta).
The ridiculous line I had to wait in to get off of the water. It’s pure chaos.
(Kelby is my roommate)
The birthday girl
Me & Kelby at Maggiano’s
Kelby and I both realized that our dream car is an Aston Martin. We are too alike… it’s scary!
Yes. We took pictures with a random person’s car.. we just roll like that.
Kelby decided to play with my hair while I studied Chem. She has some mad skills.
Went to my first water polo game with the team. Santa Clara won (against Brown), just in case you were wondering
I made my friends breakfast. The dinning hall opens pretty late on the weekend & we were getting sick of the food. So I made pumpkin pancakes & turkey bacon
Kelby and I got our first holiday drink of the season. We both ordered peppermint hot chocolates. Sooo good
Just the usual.
Pic From Today
The trees are finally getting pretty here! I was getting a bit worried that they did not change during the fall.. but they do I snapped this pic while on my way to my dorm from practice. Isn’t it pretty?!
Well, I will be back on here super soon. Now that I have my schedule figured out, I will be posting a lot more often.
