Return of the College Sophomore

So it's a new school year. And I'm back in my lovely dorm room in anticipation of the classes that will begin Monday - on August 24th - aka Princey and my 9 month anniversary. Whoop. Happy day, here's some home work ;)

But I'm here with a new attitude. Last year I was here because I thought maybe someday I would thank myself for my selfless choice to better my education right after graduating from high school without taking a year off. Then second semester I was really wishing that I hadn't come back to school and I battled with myself to decide to stay.

Then somewhat of a miracle happened.

I changed majors.

When I started college I wanted to know exactly what I was going to do and then go do it. I didn't want to change my major a whole bunch, and that if in fact I did resort to a major change that I would still be in the same field so I didn't feel like I squandered a whole lot of precious time. However, my major has changed 180 degrees and I think I'm all the better for it.

I'm now majoring in something I think I may actually enjoy since I get to take some classes that I actually get to draw in. Yay! And I have Princey here, so I won't be going home every weekend to get distracted from my studies.

Also on the plus side, because Prince Charming and I worked together all summer under the same roof for 3 months, I'm not really worried about getting sick of him. Plus here, we each still have our own space which is a nice thing to have.

Today has been a very busy day, and I'm really glad it's almost over. Moving in was the hardest part because I had a few big boxes that would have been nice to have a boy help with, but Prince was busy doing something that I'm not exactly sure of what, so Mom and I unpacked by ourselves.

Here's Mom standing in front of the breeze because it was about a million and six degrees out.

Here's the room after I unpacked all the boxes:

And now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go draw a toad...

  1. Aah my son starts next week and he wants to do about 3 or 4 different things. I'm just hoping by the time next semester comes around he'll have a better idea about a concentration.
