College Overview!

COLLEGE!
I am a college student now! Finally, it has happened and it is going so wonderfully. College is so wonderful at the moment! It's the kind of school you want to be at and the kind of place that makes you want to learn. So far college has been superb. (; 

THE VIBE!
I came back from the first day of classes saying that the vibe college gives off is really relaxed. The people at my college generally look relaxed as they take their time to get to class or talk to friends, even during the classes! I never thought this would be possible until now. The people there are also so polite! Unlike the kids at high school, people will generally hold the door open to you and answer any questions you ask! In class, people are open-minded, ready to learn, and passionate about the subjects they are studying. I love the vibes!

CAN WE CHAT ABOUT THE PEOPLE TOO?
The people are so freaking awesome. So FREAKING awesome. I can finally hang around people who are my age and older without having to deal with people younger than me. I love having friends who are my age and a few years older. I guess you could say that I am more mature than most of the people my age. I have found one or two people my age that seem pretty damn intelligent. (don't take offense to this) but people are drastically less intelligent than they use to be. Common sense is NOT common anymore. Praise to the people who do have common sense! However, since the people at PCC are generally older than me I don't have a problem with making friends. If anything I have met more genuine people this week alone than I did in one week of high school!!

TRAINS AND BUSSES!
I have to take the train to school and back, I leave at 7:45 and arrive at around 8:30. It is all fun and games. I have started reading the Bible on the train and then listening to music on the bus, seems to be working well. Friends, get on my back about Bible reading I need more of it in my life. So the bus is a little less liked than the train however it is more or less like taking a school bus so it's fine. I am going to be a broke college student because I will always be taking the train/bus. Someone donate your money to this poor college girl I know who would smile if someone paid her train pass. A good birthday gift if anyone is really having trouble with that. It would be much appreciated! 

CLASSES!
So I have the most amazing classes ever. First Aid and math 60 on Monday and Wednesday from 9am-2pm and then painting and jazz dance (the class I wanted to take the most that needs to be longer than an hour and 20 minutes) on Tuesdays and Thursdays. First Aid has been great, we are covering the basics of how to respond to life-threatening injuries.  I got off the waitlist for Math the first day I went to the class and started learning the basics right away, this class makes me feel smart. Painting is my joy and life and this class is a light in my world. The first-day lecture was almost three hours, but I made it through and now we've moved onto the fun. This being the perfect excuse to buy all the art supplies I want for painting. Then there is JAZZ. I am in love with dancing and in love with the mix between hip-hop and ballet. Two worlds that have come together and started here in America! I just bought FOOT PANTIES! ( I hope if you are skimming you found this and decided to read this, you cheater! Skimming is for the lazy people, but I do it too. Be enlighten!)

TEACHERS!
First Aid- She's such a kind teacher, and funny. 
Math- I like her. She is strict (I think) but also really sarcastic which is funny "since raising your hands is too much work for you all give me a thumbs up." 
Painting- My grandma use to paint and this teacher reminds me so much of her. I relaxed this while she was talking too day and teared up a little. She is so passionate. 
Jazz- Favorite teacher by far. Almost could be gay, actually, scratch that probably is gay! He is such a good teacher. And I am so lucky that this is Jazz leave one and two since two is more where I am at even if I haven't taken this class with him 

CAMPUS!
It is honestly so beautiful people and all everything about it is beautiful! Lots of trees, places to study, meditate. eat, walk, and workout! It makes me feel like I am in a huge fancy af school. Even though it is most likely nothing like one. Point is it's so much better than I thought it would be! 

OVERALL!
College is great. The only thing I am worried about is being over it in a few weeks. There is a small fear about being done with school in a few months and not feeling this excited. This however. is a good kind of fear. My friends, college whether it is at a local one or not is worth going to.

  1. your college experience seems so fun! I hope that it'll continue until the end of the semester! I actually felt the same when I first entered uni, it was fun and I got to meet all these wonderful people who became my friends until today! I guess my favourite thing about college/uni is my campus though, especially around the lane where all the trees and grasses are. It just makes me feel so relaxed and at peace (something I need a lot specially with this semester.)

    1. foot panties are like socks that cover the ball of your foot so when you do turns you can turn smoothly and have grip from the open heal support. College will be full of memories!

  7. Awww I'm so glad that you're enjoying college, Vanessa! That's so wonderful!!

    I wish that the people at my college were as cool as the people at yours- the people at mine are super unfriendly and a little cold. It's not fun. XD

    YOU ROCK THAT BIBLE READING GIRL!!

    Your classes sound so cool! I'd love to have an excuse to take a jazz class, although one of the dance classes I take incorporates a lot of jazz. :) FOOT PANTIES ARE THE BEST! I want to get some soon.

    Having great teachers makes life sooooo much easier!!

    The one thing I will say about my school is that the campus is really nice:) Small, lots of outdoor space and tables. I'll probably hate it once it gets cold haha, but right now it's really nice.

    So excited for you, Vanessa!

  8. I'm glad you're loving it. It sounds so amazing! You have to post some pictures of your paintings!

    Agh, I can't wait to go to college. The thrill of high school has seriously worn off. Please post frequently about your college life, because I'm honestly interested to hear about the social and educational aspects of everything.

    Also, do you live on campus? You said you have to take the train to class so I'm assuming not, but just wondering.
