Life Update

I’m currently feeling very happy because after my science class that I have today, I will officially be on Thanksgiving break. My science professor is actually going to be ending class early today and we’ll only be with here for two hours and twenty minutes instead of three hours and I normally would have politics after but my politics professor cancelled class for today. I seriously need this break because I want to be able to relax without having to worry about going to classes. Lately I’ve been extremely stressed because of school. The semester will be ending soon so that means that I’ve had a lot of tests and assignments recently. Even though I’ll be on break, I still have some assignments to do but I really hope that I’ll have time to read because my reading has been extremely school since I started school. I also hope that I’ll be able to watch some Netflix because I’m almost done watching Gilmore Girls and I’m trying to hurry up and watch it so that I’ll be able to watch Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. I honestly can’t believe how quickly this semester has gone by because in about three weeks or so I’ll be done with my first semester of college. So far everything is going pretty well despite the stress and I’m trying to be positive even though I had a horrible day yesterday but I just wanted to do a little bit of an update and share how I’ve been doing. Wilmarilys is stressed as well but we’re so happy that we get five days to relax.

Have an ALMIGHTY Day!

College Life v. Election Night

I have absolutly no words to describe how I’m feeling right now. I have no words for the historical event that happened last night. Last night was extremely stressful, not just for me, but for America. I was up late last night watching the results and I have to say that election night was even more stressful than my entire college experience up till now. I seriously cannot believe the result of this election. I honestly never saw this coming.

I’m being completely honest when I say that I am extremely disappointed in America. The entire night consisted of me staring at the US map seeing what states were leaning which way and which candidate won which state. I was also texting the co owner of the blog, since we don’t live together, about the election. We were both and I guess you could say still are in shock. Last night I kind of saw the light at the end of the tunnel slowly dim as the states kept changing colors. I tried to stop watching the election results to try and reduce my stress but I couldn’t I took a short break, then I went right back to staring at the screen watching the states continue to change color. It’s really scary how a small percentage difference greatly affects the results.  

I don’t think that I’ve felt that stressed out, I literally was starting to break out. College so far has not driven me to that level of anxiety, but I surely felt it all last night. The workload and study time in college may be more than I would prefer to have but it’s definitely manageable. I don’t know how I’ll manage life now, with the dramatic changes I’m sure are going to happen. Today has been a gloomy day, you could see it and you could just feel when you look outside.

I know the election is over and the next president has been chosen, but I think I speak for both of us when I say that we still stand with her.

Have an ALMIGHTY Day!

How’s College?

So far college is and isn’t what I expected it to be. When I entered college I knew that it would be nothing like high school and that we would have a lot more freedom and I also knew that I would be getting a lot of work but at the same time I couldn’t really fully prepare myself for how it would be. So far, I’ve gotten a lot more work than I thought I would have. I constantly have work or readings to do and I have very little time to do what I want to do. I have absolutely no time to read anything that I actually want to read because I have so much reading to do for all of my classes. Since I started college in September I’ve only read like three books and two of them were for school. I have like no time to watch tv or go out. Last weekend I was able to go to a book signing and to my co owner’s house but that’s about it.  Also because I’m currently undecided, I’m taking all of the basic requirements I need before I choose a major which means that all of the classes I’m taking require so much work.

We’re currently halfway through the semester and I can’t wait to be done because I’ll be able to get a lot of reading done since our winter break is like a month long. Both of us also plan on do a read along for the Throne of Glass series during winter break because we’ve really been wanting to read this series. College definely isn’t what I thought it would be but I know in the long run that it will be beneficial to me but at the moment I’m ready to be done. Currently I have a lab report to write which is due tomorrow and I haven’t started it and I also have a take home test for my sociology class that is due in two days but I haven’t started it either.

P.S. If anyone is interested in doing a read along with us for the Throne of Glass series whether you’ve read it or not, you’re more than welcome to.

Slowly Adjusting…

We started college about 3 weeks ago and we are still trying to adapt to this lifestyle. Not that being in college is really hard right now (it’s only our first semester and it’s only been three weeks), but it is so different compared to high school. I’m taking 6 classes this semester, but in a day the most I’ll have is 3 classes on some days I’ll have 2, but some days I work before or after classes, so my schedule constantly changes. I really didn’t expect having to adjust this much, but not having the same classes everyday makes it harder to remember your schedule and to do your work. I feel like I’m starting to adjust to my new class schedule so hopefully soon both of us will be able to post when we originally planned to post. I know that both of us feel bad for pushing our bookish accounts to the side, but we’re going to slowly ease our way back into our regular routine soon.

Hopefully we’ll be able to post again on Thursday, but until then have an ALMIGHTY day and rest of the week, if we aren’t able to post again for a while.
