This day is SO weird. I’m totally a college student again!! I just kind of slipped right back in! It feels quite different than my undergrad experience, though. The campus is really pretty, and I’ve already done 25 minutes of walking without even planning a walk!
And it’s so cool that I “worked” for 2 hours and now I have a 2 hour lunch break (which of course I will need to fill with studying after today…)
I’m sitting in the student center and ate while entering my tests into my Google Calendar (which I’m crazy about, by the way. I’m a type-A-super-organized nerd who loves calendars and this one is so cool with color coding and all kinds of neat things).
Anyways, I had a PB + Banana Sandwich on homemade honey wheat bread (Although delicious, PB + B never fills me up that well)
A Swiss Yogurt (a special treat – it’s really, really smooth and tart) plus flax:
And an apple:
Although this lunch totaled around 550 kcal, I’m not really full. I might need a snack before lab instead of after…I guess it was kind of a light lunch compared to my normal work ones.
Fashion vs. Comfort
So I vowed to myself that I would dress professionally during the next 2 years on campus rather than resort to jeans and hoodie sweatshirts. Well, I’m facing my first debate: as a commuter student I have to park about a 10 minute walk from my classes. Not a huge deal, but when I’m carrying a heavy backpack and it’s 30* outside and I’m teetering in my dress shoes, all I wanted this freezing cold morning was to be wearing comfortable tennis shoes! I think I’m going to have to just compromise my shoes. I already switched to the tennis shoes I keep in my trunk – and I’m wearing them with brown dress pants!
But cool that I’ll get about 40 minutes of walking in on M and W!
Chemistry looks like it won’t be too hard. The concepts (calculating molecular weight) came right back to me and my professor actually said “I think I was a little too excited last semester and went into too much detail. I’m going to take a step back this semester and focus on the basics.” FINE WITH ME!!!!!!! I also made a friend, who is a sophomore transfer nutrition student. She thought I was a freshman 😳 I guess I do look pretty young! But we have plans to meet for lunch in the dining hall on Wednesday (which I was already planning for fun).
Physio seems like it’ll be really, really interesting, but the professor moved through her powerpoint SOO fast that I could barely keep up with the notes. Maybe since it was the first day and a relatively easy topic? It’s definitely going to be my hardest course.
Off to do some reading!
