Hey readers, sorry it's been awhile since I've last blog or updated. I have been busy with college; writing essays, lots of reading, and studying. I have been here at NAU for almost 4 weeks, and I absolutely love it here! College life is great. I feel so free and independent! No one tells me what to do and when to do it. It is our responsibility to get things done. :) I am taking English 105, Chinese 201, Sociology 210, NAU 100, and Theatre 101. So far, English class is the hardest and a lot of work out of all the other classes. We write and read a lot in this class. We just finished our Writing Project #1, and now we are starting Writing Project #2. HURRAY! (Yeah, not really.) Oh, that's college right? It's not so bad, it's just time consuming. Chinese 201 is pretty easy for me because a lot of it is review for me since I took three years of Chinese in high school. I like our professor, he is really nice. We do not have much homework, just a lot of class work. Everyone in the class speaks pretty decent Mandarin and I am impressed. =) Okay, so Sociology 210 is my favorite class. I love it! It is interesting and I learn a lot from it. I'm in Sociology 210 because I already took Sociology 101 when I was in high school. Sociology is also my major. I do not have a declared minor yet, but I have some ideas in mind. Sociology exam #1 is next Monday. I have to study this weekend! I am quite nervous about this exam though, hopefully it'll be okay. I think my friend Heather, my sister, and I are studying together this weekend or something. NAU 100 class is the easiest class ever. We just learn more about the campus and college life. We do not have tests. We just do activities and easy homework. This class actually ends in October. =) Awesome huh? Anyways, lastly Theatre 101 is an awesome class too. It is an introduction to Theatre. =) We have like 100 students in her class and it's insane! Haha, she doesn't take attendance though. All we do for homework is read one chapter and take a quiz online. It's open book too, so it's really easy. I only have her once a week. Anyways, I do not have classes on Fridays which is pretty cool because that means I have three day weekends! :] So I took my first Chinese quiz a couple days ago. It wasn't bad at all. I was very confident in myself and know I will do well on the quiz. I got back my quiz today and I got an A on it. Yay! I am so proud of myself. :)
Other than academics, I would have to say that my social life is pretty awesome! I met so many people and became friends with them. Everyone here is friendly. =) Last weekend my girls and I went to watch Sorority Row on Friday. The movie was alright, not that scary. It made me laugh at some parts. Hahaha. The next day we decided to go downtown Flagstaff at night to hang out and just have a good time exploring and shopping. It was great. =) Although, there were some creepy guys and drunk people. Lol, it kind of fascinates me. :P My friend Katie is the most hilarious one out of the group! She cracks us up man. Oh gosh, I love her. :) Hmm, I am not sure if I'm going to hang out with them this week or if I'm doing something since I have to study for the Sociology exam. I think I am going to this social event in my friend's sorority. I think it'll be fun. I'm not in a sorority right now and I'm not even sure if I would want to. You know what they all say about fraternities and sororities right? 'PARTY' and that's all they do? Hmm.. It makes me wonder and think a lot. IF I end up joining a sorority, it would be a great one with a lot of dedication to community service! =)
Only 9 more days till I see my love again! It is going to be our one year anniversary and his 20th birthday! How lovely and exciting is that?! :) Gosh, I miss him so much. I can't wait. We are going to spend 4 days together and it's going to be great. Which means, I need to pack sometime soon. Lol.
Anyways, I am going to head out for dinner now. After that I am coming back to relax for awhile, shower, and then study for my Theatre test. =) By the way, did I mention that the weather is here is lovely? It's so fresh and breezy! I like it. Okay, time for me to go. Bye! I'll come back soon and try to update more often.
