After I had a tiny breakdown last week and a not-so-tiny breakdown earlier this week, Mom #2 sat me down and had a really long and thorough talking with me. It felt good to kind of get all of my emotions about not homeschooling anymore; having an adult son (!); and interacting all day long with young, skinny co-eds. I think I may have been keeping too much locked up inside.
Whatever it was, I feel MUCH better now, and I'm refocused on being successful in my studies, which is a good thing, because they aren't getting any easier. I think that's all I'm going to say about that this week.:)
My main observation this week is all of the STUFF I've noticed around campus. Why do college students have so much stuff? Myself included.
I leave the house on school days with the following baggage
The big one is the backpack, which holds textbooks, binders, pens, pencils, paper, and other. . . ahem . . . necessities. The smaller one is my lunch and, most importantly, extra water since it's hotter than Hades here. I still don't understand why I'm not skinny yet; I walk miles and miles (it seems) every day with hundreds of pounds on my back, but I digress.
Today as I waited for my bus, which was running late, as usual, I noticed that I'm not the only one who likes to keep all of their stuff with them at all times. Take a look.
Well those are my observations for the week. I promised my Mom I'd go to a church-lady luncheon with her today, so I need to practice not being a Heathen for a couple hours so nothing sacrilegious comes flying out of my mouth in front of everyone, LOL.
Have a fantastic weekend, Everyone
Until next time . . .
