Life in the Commons

Wow, three months have gone by insanely fast, and there is no reason they shouldn’t have. Time flies when you’re having fun, right?

TCU has been an amazing college experience so far, with all the academic and fun events going on. That’s not to say it hasn’t had the stressful moments or thoughts of dropping out, because no matter where you go to college, I think that’s included in the tuition.

I am currently writing this post while laying out in the TCU Commons, which is just the big grassy lawn in the center of campus. It’s a nice November day of about 82 degrees, which makes this northerner very happy.

I’m on about hour 2 of sitting out here, and I can’t believe I haven’t done it before. I’m all set with my planner, free reading book, Starbucks Coffee, and iPad with the Pinterest app, so it has been very relaxing, which is what I need after a couple of weeks of stress.

I’ve officially registered for classes for second semester, leaving me anxious to finish out my final weeks of this one. SCHOOL IS STRESSFUL. Anyone who tells you that college isn’t hard is either in denial or hasn’t actually looked at their grades. It’s a good four hours of studying a day, and sometimes that isn’t even enough.

To add on to the academic struggles, I was sick all last week. Not just a mere cold or anything, but a bacterial infection that caused bronchitis, pharyngitis, AND and ear infection. I was bed-ridden for a few days to say the least. But now I’m feeling better and can breathe without losing a lung, so it’s time to get back on track.

I just have to say I am in love with working outside. I’ve been able to see a bunch of people just walking around, as well as other people setting up camp out here. People will wave and say hi, and I like not being cooped up in my dorm room like I was all weekend. It’s also been very productive. I’ve been able to plan out my last few weeks of the school year and even study some. The only unfortunate thing is the bugs. I’ve been out here since 3:30 in the afternoon, and now I am watching the sun set over campus, and it is absolutely beautiful!

A lot has happened since my last post, so more should be coming soon. I mean, I’m going to have to dedicate a whole thing to the experience of winning the World Series sitting 1,000 miles from home. To add on to that, I’m still applying for clubs and getting involved, so more great memories are sure to come!

That’s all for now,
