back to school

Hi guys! Its been forever since the last time I posted. I have a full plate this semester...

Sidebar...for those of you that don't know I am a 25 year old college student that lives on campus. Yep. Thats what I just said...I live on campus. Campus life is different. I lived on my own for nearly 5 years before I decided to return to school and move back on campus. It has been an experience. Although the convenience of living on campus is fantastic, adjusting to the rules of campus living can be irritating. No wine glasses, no coffee maker, no toaster, no slow cooker, no candles, no alcohol, and most importantly no weapons...and if found in your apartment will get you a fine up to $150. Yea. Its complete bologna. Another tough thing to deal with is being mistaken for an eighteen year old by members of the faculty and staff who prefer to treat students like a five year old. So not cool. Any who it is what it is and I have to work with what I've got to get to my goal...becoming a college graduate...

So, like I was saying, I have a full plate this semester. I am in school carrying an 18-hour full load of classes, a 15-hour/week internship, and a 20hr/week job...plus homework, sleep and what little time I have left to simply enjoy life. Its easy to get overwhelmed with a schedule like that. I am simply making it my business to keep a balance in my personal, school, internship, and work life. At 2-weeks into the semester, I have found myself spending a lot of time by myself. I don't have much time to entertain friends and company the way I usually do. I have found myself becoming one of those coffee shop nerds...which I have always had an issue with going out places alone.

So I am living and learning and growing as I embark upon my last year here at Savannah State University. I don't want this to be too long, so I'm going to end this one here and will post another one a bit later. I hope you enjoyed this. Let me know what you think...
