It’s been about 10 days since I’ve moved into my dorm and said that everything was weird. Ohio is still a little weird, but significantly less weird, which is all I could have asked for.
My roommate and I are getting along well and Friday night we made a Walmart run at 2 in the morning and we got a fish for our room. We named him Adam Benjamin. Adam because we live in Adams Hall and Benjamin after a boy we want to befriend. Only a little weird. We have been talking tons and we are very similar, we’re both very glad we got paired together and didn’t get someone else. She also says I’m very easy to talk to which is really reassuring since I feel like I’m the most awkward person on the face of the planet.
I think what I really needed was for school to start. I crave a schedule because without one, I just lie around and wait for something to happen.
Once school started and my books started to arrive I have been working on homework, talking to people in my classes, etc. I am still a little anxious about being here but I’m working on it.
I also got a job! I am working at one of the campus markets. I work Tuesdays, Thursdays, and every other Saturday which isn’t too bad. I just make smoothies for 4 hours and the people I have worked with so far have been pleasant and nothing but kind to me.I am joining a few more clubs this week and still making it too the gym whenever I can. So, once I get in the swing of things and don’t have to pull out my phone each time I go to class to remember each classroom number, I think the weirdness will subside completely.
In the meanwhile, I have a 22 page article to read and annotate for Wednesday, so wish me luck
