Well, college was definitely not what I expected it to be.
There were some things I was really naive about, but I'm glad I know better now. I found out some new things about myself. Like how I'm really impulsive, how poor my socialization skills are, how mediocre my writing and speaking skills are, and how I care too much about school. I also realized that I hate it when my life is only and always about writing. Going to college made me appreciate other things more than I already did--things like the piano, walks at night, acting, learning, the company of my friends.... My writing has suffered because I made it my only priority for awhile, and being online didn't help me, which is a tiny reason why I haven't been on here in so long. I honestly haven't been on here in so long because college made me really busy. I hardly had free time for myself.
Another thing I found out about myself is that I'm smarter than I thought, I think. I mean, I've never had straight As before I went to college.
Besides finding out new things about myself, there is a small list of things I never thought would happen in college:
I'd hate the cafeteria food within two weeks
My boyfriend would break up with me, and then want me back when I was trying to move on (poorly). (We both made bad decisions, and I'm happy where we are now.)
I'd dye my hair back to brown...I liked the red.
I'd make a really close friend so soon.
I'd have a lame teacher that would consider the Oxford comma to be incorrect, and mark it as such on papers if used, even though the English Department, as a whole, accepts the Oxford comma as correct. (Note: the teacher I had is full-time.)
So much shit happens in four months, it's crazy.
Anyway, over the course of those four months, I had a photo in an exhibit, I wrote an uncountable amount of papers, I was in the student directed play, I was in tech for the fall play, I relearned how to play the piano, I joined and quit Jazz band, I joined the school's literary magazine, and other stuff.
My next semester is going to be quite interesting...and it's less than a week away. The classes I'm having next semester are Abnormal Psychology, Beginning Algebra, Introduction to Literary Studies, Musical Theatre History, and Western Civilizations from 1450.
