I could’ve sworn you said you were relaxed, and you didn’t need any experience to join. Those never-ending laps you called a “warm-up” were more then I ever did in a single practice last year. My shoulders are on fire, and all I want to do is eat and nap.
I was waiting on line with my sister at a store and my sister mentioned Yale. The women in front of us apologized for eavesdropping on our conversation, but wanted to congratulate me. She asked where I was from, and told me I’m doing my town proud. As she walked out the store she said “God bless, and enjoy it.”
It’s been an entire month since I stepped onto campus. A day hasn’t passed that I haven’t realized how blessed I am to be here. The people are great, the clubs/opportunities are amazing, and the weekends are nothing short of hilarious. The workload is picking up, but I’m still enjoying every day here.
So how's your workload going so far?! Is it really tough?
It’s actually not too bad. I can only really complain about the reading in one of my classes. Then again, I’m not taking an English class or a science lab. Shopping period only ended last week, and this is the official first week of classes so maybe that’s why the workload isn’t too intense. Give it another week or two, and maybe (hopefully not) I’ll be saying something different.
Hi. So, I found your blog because I look at the Yale tag too much... (it's where I want to go.) I'm a senior in high school. And, that's pretty much it. I'm following because you seem like a cool person and I can relate to many of the things you post (judging by the first few pages of your blog). Did I mention I want to go to Yale? Maybe that slipped out already. I'm visiting in October! Really excited. Right, so, I'm following you. In the least creepy way possible. I promise.
I’m glad you can relate with the stuff I post! I’ve been here for a three weeks now, and I’m blown away everyday; it’s freaking real! Hope you love it once you visit next month, and everything works on well with college admissions!
P.S. It’s okay to be creepy. We pretty much decided we’re all creepy in some way here so we just embrace it! hahaaa
I love it here. A day hasn’t gone by that I haven’t looked around and said to myself “what the fuck?” It’s crazy to think I actually go here. The food is good, the classes are great, and the people here are amazing. Everything around here is going a mile and minute and there’s always something to do. I’m sure this fast pace routine will get tiring after a while, but right now I’m gonna enjoy it and keep up. And even if I start to go at my own pace, I’m sure the ride here will still be amazing.
