taemins—weave tagged me for 6 selfies of 2014 a haaaaaawt minute ago, but it was hard for me because I eventually end up deleting most of the ones I take because low self confidence //lol. Too lazy to tag anyone, and I also don’t know who has already been tagged so…EVERYONE IS TAGGED YAY.
Sometimes I get the feeling that my suite mates don’t like me. This morning, they invited me to eat breakfast with them and I told them to let me know when they were leaving so I could finish getting ready. I waited for a while, expecting them to knock at my door, but maybe 20 minutes after our encounter, I realized that they already left without me. I went to the dining hall by myself and found them all sitting together with a couple of other guys from our hall. I wasn’t sad, I just thought “That must be hella awkward to invite someone and then see them when you forgot that you invited them.” Eh, whatever. I probably just don’t fit in their social circle. I never did anyways.
I thought I had a quiz in Greek Mythology today, and it turned out to be extremely easy with questions like, “What day is it today?” and “What is your full name?” I love my Greek Myth teacher, he’s supes chill. After that I had a little break, so I walked back to my dorm with Cool Guy Kevin and killed an hour and a half before my Art History class, which I SWEAR, IS THE MOST BORING COURSE IN THE HISTORY OF COLLEGE. I like art. I appreciate it. But I caaaaaaan’t sit in another 75 minute lecture about the same sculpture with some cold ass air conditioning freezing me to sleep. I had to eat a whole stick of Hi-Chew to keep me awake.
After my classes I took my first nap in college and it felt great. I’ve just been so tired and overwhelmed this week. Not like anything too stressful happened, but this constant cycle of staying up late socializing, and getting up early for class, and walking everywhere just took it out of me.
VapeBoy and SnapBack taught me how to skateboard, and I didn’t eat shit so that’s a plus. Then I got dinner with Chatterbox, which wasn’t that great today.
We got our targets for out dorm building’s game of Assassin today and I actually got Snapback so I’m pretty excited. I don’t think it will be hard considering we’re pretty close and I always see him around everywhere. But watch yo back, boy.
After that, I drank a bit with my roommate and we just talked. I really regret all the judgement I passed on her before I even met her. //INSERT THE CHEESE// She’s one of the chillest people I have ever met, and out of all these people, I’m glad that she’s my roommate.
I just noticed that no one really hugs at college. Maybe it’s just the fact that we’re all barely strangers and while we may seem close we don’t really know each other like that. Every time I say bye to my hall mates, we kind of just awkwardly wave or knuckle touch or gesture. I miss the hugs of Chino Hills, where every time you left someone you made sure to give them a hug. This just got super depressing, but trust me, I’m not too sad.
I think it’s normal for me to want to be home for the weekend after only 6 days here. I’m not super homesick, but I do miss a lot of people. Strangely enough, I’ll miss my hall mates over the weekend too. But anyways,
I seriously wonder how much I’ve walked since I’ve been on this campus. Just walking from my dorm to the main campus is like 0.5 miles. I really need to invest in a bike, or a penny board, or heelys, or anything that’ll just give my poor legs a rest catdamn.
I hate all the upperclassmen who told me to wait until after the first week of school to get my books. My teachers all assigned homework within the first day, and I’m already behind because I have to wait for my darn books to come in. My “Amazon Prime” doesn’t even apply to a majority of them. So I have to wait another 5 days or so….guess who’s having a great start to their first semester? Other than that school itself isn’t so bad. My anthropology teacher is hilarious, and today he made us sing Frozen, the Barney Song, and our ABC’s. What it had to do with Anthropology, I still don’t quite understand, but I hope he continues to make class this engaging. I didn’t run into Big Kimchi again which is good.
I actually fell asleep in Stats today, which is disappointing but expected at the same time. My teacher is sweet, but she’s the same exact math teacher I’ve had for all of high school. Just reading the notes right off of the powerpoint with no application. No examples. No real teaching. The only saving grace of that session was the girl who sat next to me. She kept cracking jokes which kept me at least half-paying attention.
After my tiring day of being on campus, H Hall decided to all go to dinner as a “family.” Granted, only about 1/5 of the Hall joined the dinner, but RA!Male and RA!Fem ate with us so that was nice. We planned a lot of things to do as a dorm, like a bonfire, study night, movie night, karaoke night…God I’m so excited. I really love the people in my hall. No doubt about it.
Sammy got locked out of her room so we hung out in Baritone Master’s (Asian guy who’s a vocal performance major with perfect pitch) room. And I met a bunch of people for the first time who never come out of their rooms. Sitting Bull, (Native American guy, this name is not intended to be racist, but it’s just the first thing I thought of.) Cool Indian, (an Indian guy who is unlike any Indian I’ve ever met before) and 626 (a guy from the 626 area code LOL) We played Cards Against Humanity and Sitting Bull had these really cool lights that changed according to the beat of the music. And The Next Macklemore came into the room and just started bustin’ rhymes to the beat and I was like wooooooaaaahhh white boy, calm down.
I finally bought most/all of my books so I’m excited I can actually do homework now. HAAHHHHHH. Just one more day of school until the glorious weekend. Hallelu
dorm selfies because i’m antisocial.
jk my whole hall is working out and i have homework.
Yesterday I met a dude called Big Kimchi, and he’s a really husky, abrasive, and loud Korean guy. I didn’t like him. He kept getting in my personal business, and he cusses and smokes a lot of cigarettes. But he did teach me a lot about the school though, like how to take the shuttle, and how to make copies, and how to get to certain buildings quicker. But I’m not excited to see him tomorrow…
Today, I met up with my orientation friends which was nice because it was like seeing old familiar faces even though I only met them about a month ago. Bronson and Frank visited and took me out to celebratory Buffalo Wild Wings, and it made me miss home even more. Then me and Michael Jordan (tall black man) jammed in the H hall common room, and a cockroach came sprinting across the room and we all screamed and MVP White Boy of the year caught it with a donut box and took it outside.
The past two days of classes were eventful, but frankly, I’m exhausted. My classes are interesting but not that engaging. I think the only one I’m truly excited about is my Greek Mythology class which is on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Eh. Class is probably my least favorite part about college. Which it probably shouldn’t be. I’m even thinking about changing my major which is a scary thing but, I’ll save it for another day.
