Wow. College is so unbelievably different than what I was used to at home. To sum it up: a LOT more walking, never having alone time, and most meals are out.
Not going to lie, the first day I felt like I was going to pass out from exhaustion. Moving was stressful and so hot. After finally getting my room the way I wanted I felt a little better.
These are some views of my new casa. Do you spy the minion? 😉 I had to get a double step stool because I am really short and the bed is meant for bigfoot. My mini fridge has a mini freezer that I shall fill with ice cream and shtuff. The blue and black cabinets are basically my pantry with various nut butters, protein bars and powders, granola bars, popcorn, crackers and more assortment of goodies. I love my space 🙂 You can see more pictures on my Instragram (@emmy.vazquez) for some more sneak peaks of my college journey.
My roommate is very nice and I didn’t show her side of the room for privacy reasons. I have met several really sweet people and keep meeting more every day. As I write this I just had dinner at the dining hall and have some spare time before a hall meeting. This week is just for freshmen to get settled and to meet people while getting to know the campus as well. My dorms are at the bottom of the huge hill of the campus. My classes are at the very top… Super.
Tomorrow I am planning on seeing what groups or clubs I can join since I won’t be doing Greek life. Volunteering and maybe an intramural sport are what I am looking at.
Many more mini updates are to come 🙂
For those that have gone to college, what clubs did you enjoy?
Was it hard making relationships?
