Now that school ended, I am now in summer school. Haha. School never really ends for me
Anyway, this summer I am taking a 5 week class on Statistics. Good stuff. I figured I would get it out of the way now so that I don’t have to worry about it later. So far it seems to be going well, so let’s hope that it keeps going well. I have my first exam this upcoming Wednesday.. so wish me luck!
Besides taking a class and doing lots of homework, I have been enjoying myself out here on campus. I’m living in the upperclassmen housing now, which means that I get to enjoy a pretty nice living complex. It’s been actually a lot of fun living here so far. I have three other housemates, all of whom I have never met before, but their all really cool. We have a kitchen, a family room, two bathrooms, and four rooms. All of us have our own rooms, which makes living here both relaxing and pleasant. I have never had my own room on campus before, so I am really liking the freedom I am getting now It’s so much easier to get work done when you have your own room.
One of my favorite things about living here is the kitchen. I can’t get over how nice these kitchens are. It has been so nice being able to make my own meals and not go to my school’s cafeteria. Really not a fan of our cafeteria to be honest. It’s nice being able to make my own food and not have my school add oil to absolutely everything they serve us. Serious. Gross.
Here’s a few things I have been whipping up this past week:
Besides all of the cooking and studying I’ve been doing, I have been able to hangout with some of my friends who are still here this summer. We have been going on hikes, hanging out, walking around different towns, getting ice cream and people watching, and just having a good time.
I have to say, the hiking out here is really nice. There are plenty of trails near my campus and all of them seem to be so pretty! I love hiking through the woods, reaching peaks, and being outdoors with my friends. I wish there were more places to hike back in Chicago. For now, I will just take advantage of the gorgeous trails over here.
I also have been going to physical therapy twice a week and I am proud to say that I am practically injury free now! I strained my hip flexor a few months ago and everyday movements, such as walking, hurt me. It really sucked. However, after my season ended I have been able to rest it and get therapy. After a few weeks of taking it easy on myself, I am very close to being at my 100%. For now, I just have a little muscle weakness in that area. I’ve been going on runs now and my hips just feel a little unstable.. but at least there is no more pain.
After my therapy sessions, I have been trying new coffee in the area. I like to treat myself after the sessions
This coffee is from Philz Coffee. I first tried their coffee back in October and have fallen in love since. I don’t go often, but when I do I am pretty happy about it I love how they put fresh mint leaves on top of their Mint Mocha Mojito drinks. So refreshing.
I also love this really awesome place called Pressed Juicery. I mentioned this place in my last post, and honestly I’m in love. I can’t get enough of how good their frozen blends are. It’s like froyo.. but no added sugars or dairy. It’s just frozen fruit and nuts.
It was a pretty hot day yesterday and my friends wanted to get some frozen yogurt, so I suggested this place instead. They all are in love too now. I love getting people hooked on things
I also like photo bombing peoples photos. Lots of fun.
Well, I hope you all are enjoying your weekend! Talk to you all later
