College Week Three



Somehow, it's already week three of college. My math teacher, Suzanne, was not kidding when she said terms at college go by fast! Day one turned into week three in the blink of an eye, leaving only 12-3= 9 weeks of this term. 

Let's talk school *as we all roll our eyes out of our eyeball sockets* Seriously, you'll want to read this I have got some tips and stories that will make your day a little brighter. AND UPDATE ON THE POEM THANK YOU.

CLASSES
Painting is going to slowly kill me. Lies. It will kill me within the next two weeks if we don't stop painting objects in front of us!! That is hard stuff to do, especially when you've got the teacher breathing on your neck and the brush in your hand for two hours!! The homework for that class is hard too! This part makes no sense to me but the class work is not graded in that class, the homework is! I like this class but it's getting old quickly. I have already spent 3 (times) 12 hours in that class! 36 hours... no that can't be that's more than a day!!! AHHHH! 

MATH. Math is getting better... I think. The first week of classes I could not do much since my grandpa was visiting, and sooooo I got a 57 out of 100 on the quiz. WHICH the teacher was considered about because I am not a "good" kid in her class. Long story short, I was asking my friends about math and she thought I was deliberatively talking over her so she had to talk to me and the three other friends I have in that class. Now I sit up front to a guy named Brandon who is selling wine to the professor.... 

TIP: Don't sit with friends you'll talk with. Having friends in your class isn't always a good thing.

First aid is GREAT. WONDERFUL, SUPERB, JUST MY FAVORITE. I am not kidding you. The past three classes we have been learning how to do CPR, use the AED, and help choking people, as well as how to go about this kind of situation in a safe manner. It is great. I have met some awesome people in that class too! 

"My baby!! Oh no! My child, she isn't breathing anymore!" This is the line I get to say as I play the role of the over dramatic mother who is on a plane with her baby when she realized that it has stopped breathing. 
"Uhhhhhhhhh" That is the response my group member gives me as he tries to quickly sort out what to do. 
"Can you help me?! Oh my poor child..."
My group member comes to life "Ma'am, I am certified in first aid is it okay if I help your baby?" 
The whole time my fake baby is getting CPR I am freaking out in the corner then passing back and forth as they stop her heart with the fake but over dramatic AED. 
GOOD TIMES... 

FRIENDS
As for meeting people that's a little harder for me. I have made a few new friends that are girls, but they seem almost artificial which is not the kind of friendship I am looking for. Girls are hard to make friends with (I'll just stick with you guys!) HOWEVER. I have made quite a few new friends who are of opposite gender. I can see all the shocked faces. Somehow I am friends with a few of the guys of the soccer team. This is because of Juan who I happen to have met on the bus. I don't think he will ever stop teasing me about the 57 I got on my math quiz. 

I have also met someone who I genuinely like. He's a wonderful guy and I am hoping that he will stay around in my life for a while. I am proud of myself for putting myself out there. Thank you relates to us a lot. More of the story is there. Haha you all are so cute for giving me support and shipping us. 

ALL IN ALL, college is still going pretty well! I am excited to go to school every day and excited to talk to people who have more life experience than I do. I am also thankful to get the chance to learn new things. It is just so wonderful to feel the respect everyone has for one another at college and not feel the pressure of having to fit in. College is a success!

    1. Glad you can relate on this one. I do like sitting in the front. It helps me a lot and the teacher thinks more of you. Our classes are about 20 people so no matter where you sit you get attention but front is best.

  13. COLLEGE PAINTING SOUNDS SO HARD. One of my friends, even though we're in high school, she has a B because the teacher's standards is having a 95 in the class, and so everyone just raised eyebrows at that grading system. *flails a bit* But anyways, I was wondering if you could help me: I'm going to a college fair tomorrow but I have no idea what kind of questions I'm supposed to ask or that kind of thing and if you could give me advice, I'd sincerely appreciate it! ^.^

    xoxo Morning

    1. Morning! I would love to help you with college questions however... Might be a little late now. Hopefully you'll check back at my blog and it isn't to late. Either way these can be helpful.
      Ask them about thier most popular majors, how big the classes are, how good the professors are, dorm rules, grading system, ect.
      Ask them about the things that are important to you.
