I was reading all types of post like this last week because that's when 95% of college students went back to school from Christmas break. The few of us that were left, like me, have our first day of classes today. It's hard to say how I feel going back. I'm excited because I love school and have come so far, but also sad because this is it. My last time having a first day of school, my last time being nervous about classes or having to memorize my schedule. After this semester, so many things will change and I know only great things are to come.
Yesterday was my last day to really relax, so I had a "Me Day."
I did whatever I wanted to, which meant staying in my jammies all day long, reading, sleeping and watching TLC! It was so wonderful! I also started working on a Valentine's Day craft for Jake! Since he reads this I can't say what it is, but I'll do a whole post on that later on!
This morning, I had my first class at 8AM! How a second semester senior is unlucky enough to have an 8AM class, I will never know. Pray for me! I am such a night owl, I just knew getting up this morning to my alarm at 6:40, was not going to feel pleasant. The truth is, it actually wasn't that bad! I showered last night in an effort to sleep a little longer and had most of my things laid out. This may change throughout the semester though as classes get harder, but I was pretty proud of myself.
Another strange thing happened this morning and it started when I felt the need to look up the group fitness schedule at school. I even looked at which ones would fit in with my classes on certain days.
Who am I and where has Melody gone?!
At least that's how I felt! After class, I drove home, fixed myself a bagel and put gym clothes on. THIS NEVER HAPPENS. I hate going to the gym and exercising, but something just got into me this morning. I started with 20 minutes of cardio on the elliptical, then did 25 reps on all the machines. I kind of sound like I know what I'm talking about right?
What else do I have planned for this marvelous day?
Boone just got a Starbucks like a week ago! I'm not sure how I've gone 3.5 years without it! It opened inside of a brand new hotel and I'm dying to try it out. I fell in love with Starbucks during the holidays for their Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Peppermint Mochas, so I have no clue what I'll be having today!
Hopefully whatever I decide on will get me through my last two classes of the day, Principles of Marketing and Public Relations Principles. I'll finish off my classes at 4:45 this afternoon. I also have something to look forward to tonight!
My second favorite show:)
Here's to a great last first day!
