I’m about to write about my life…
So far, so good. Starting off my second year of college on a good note. I admit I was nervous meeting my apartment mates, I mean what if I was in the same situation as last year? But I can say that this year is totally different. My apartment mates are so sweet and nice, and I’ve had so much fun with them. Today we cooked pasta with some friends for dinner and just brought food from all of our different apartments to share. Honestly, I’m feeling so much better about this year. I feel more confident and happy.
Yesterday at the shuttle orientation meeting I was talking to a driver who was also a bio major and was going to be a 3rd year. I told her I was worried about taking OChem and Genetics and she said she got A’s all through OChem! Like, she did average her first year like I did, but for some reason OChem and genetics and everything just clicked, maybe because it’s less general. That was super reassuring for me. Plus talking about professors and just relaxing.
As for shuttle driving. Not too bad! Meeting other drivers is fun and I make friends while sitting at stops. I was 20 minutes early to my next shift so I was sitting there with my vest on so someone started asking me about the routes and how driving was. I also made friends with a 2nd year named Vincent and a 1st year named Ryan HAHA, I was just talking about the ARC and driving and the job. And once my shift started he was like, “oh no don’t kill me! I’ll haunt you if you do” but you know I just told him “Don’t worry I got this!” That was fun, the ride along driver with me was really chill and funny.
Ride along driver: “It’s starting to become fall weather. Fall weather is my favorite. And winter. And spring…And summer.
Me: So…you like all seasons? Haha
I had to drive the Late Night @ the Arc Route shuttle. Cuhhhraaaazzy. The buses got so packed. So many freshman asking if the shuttles went to Mesa or Middle. And the ARC was super crowded especially with the food trucks!
I spent so much on my books this year :/ But at least I’m working again so I can get paid! Nervous for classes, especially writing, but I’m feeling more reassured after talking to other people about it. Oh, and I love my apartment and having my own room! Definitely so much better (and cheaper) than dorming. Yup, so I’m learning to utilize the shuttles more. Going to try to balance school and work. Take it easy with classes. And just try to have a good year.
