Ok, yesterday was my second day of class. I had Advertising: Creativity and the American Culture first. Wow! This class is going to ROCK! I'm totally stoked about diving into this class. The professor is Israeli(no telling how wrong that was spelled), and teaching our American Culture class. He did make sure to point that out to us all. It's a really big class. 400 or so I think. Anyhow, our assignments for the first night were watching a speaker on youtube, and reading two shorter online articles. All of which were very interesting. Critical issues in Journalism was another big one. Sadly, I must confess I was nearly 10 minutes late for this one. Eek. It happens I guess, but hopefully not again anytime soon. Apparently it takes a while to get out of classrooms with 400 students. Who would've thought that everyone wants to leave when class is dismissed? That is on my to-do list for my 3day weekend: Finding shorter routes to classes from classes. The journalism class makes me nervous though.'s so..boring. I'll survive though.
Well that was it for yesterday.
Boy do I wish that was true.
So, I had like, 30 chemistry problems and 26 pages of reading to do for the Biology class. I walked over to the Co-op after my classes yesterday morning to pick up my book, still not knowing what I was to do about the chemistry work. Well, as soon as I walk into my dorm, I saw an email saying I was being dropped from the Bio class. WHAT!? I'm in a first-year-interest group, which is a group of freshman studying something similiar. This same group was pre-scheduled for 3 different classes, one of which was Bio. So I thought I had immunity from the prerequisites described.
I even emailed the TA, professor, and my advisor.
Well long story a little shorter and a lot less stressful, things got mixed up, and all of the FIG members were being dropped, but placed in an alternative biology class. This one for non-majors. Yes!
It meant no reading those pages, and no chem homework! woohoo!
I did have to go back to the Co-0p and get refunded for my book. Which I found out, the other bio class had a book half the price of the original.
Ok, I reallllly need to go get ready for class. So, ciao!

First Day

So, today was the day! I started it off at 10 this morning with Introduction to Theatre. Wow! That class seems like it is going to be SO much fun! I'm really really excited about that one. Then I took a little break and headed to Biology at 12. Ick. That will be horrible, but did I expect anything else? So I didn't have another class until 4. I had to walk all the way across campus to my Freshman Seminar. It was worth it I guess. It should be a pretty good experience.

First Night

Ok, so I got here yesterday, but my mom and grandma wanted me to stay at the hotel with them. Well, my roommate wasn't going to be here until today, so I just decided I'd go ahead and stay with them. So Arissa, my roomie, got here around 2. Guess what? She's not staying here tonight! So, I'm still stuck here alone my first night. Gawh.
My room looks pretty good though. I'll try to post some pictures sometime soon. I'm semi-tired though, so I'm thinkin' I'll get to bed.

Ciao for now!

True Post #1

Hopefully you've made it through the introduction (I think it posts these on the page in order of most recently published, so you may want to take the time to scroll down a bit and check out 'New Beginnings').

As you probably know, this summer, I have working at Sonic Drive-In. The plan was to work until the week before the big day; moving day.
Going off to college has always been my dream. Not attending college after high school never even crossed my mind. So after I was accepted in to my choice school, The University of Texas at Austin, my dream started becoming a reality. I received my acceptance letter in December, so it still didn't feel quite so 'real.' As boxes were crossed off on the calendar, my distant future was closer future. Not what you were expecting? Me neither. Here I am, less than a week away from my check-in day, and it still seems so surreal.
Back to the Sonic story. Today was finally the day. Time to move you may be thinking, but that's not quite it. Actually, today was my last day of work. What exactly is the relevence of that? Well, it makes my college dream feel so much more...well, real.
Ok, I'm talking in circles. I've been dreaming of college for the last 6 years (at least) and now I'm leaving for college in 6 days.

How Surreal.

New Beginnings

Wow..after becoming so myspace/facebook literate, I have become a complete stranger to Blogspot. This is actually my second blog. I was inspired to start a new one by Boog. He's all about Blogs. He made a good point when saying that to even log into Myspace, one is exposed to such..trash. Though he did not convince me to delete my page, it was a big reason for my descision to post on Blogspot as opposed to Myspace. As the description states, I would like to keep everyone back home up to date on my 'College Life.' Sure I'll come back and visist, but thinking of filling multiple people in on a whole months' happenings in a two day timespan gives me a headache.
Though I may choose to log into Myspace and risk seeing the trash that is available, there is no need in me sentencing you to the same. So, as I was checking out one of Boog's various site's, I was motivated.
I plan to TRY to give some sort of report at least three times a week while away at school. So as to avoid the two day cram on my visits. Make sense?
I guess you'll all know how many friends I make by the number of entries I post. The more the not so merrier in this case I'd say. Ha. Get it? Ok, maybe not so funny.

Well, this is the Introduction.
Welcome to The New Aventures of Meredith!
