So I'm in class and forgot my headphones (we're working on podcasts) so I decided to post a quick update entry.
College is going well. Classes keep getting harder, but I suppose I should've seen that coming. Statistics is going better than expected, but Astronomy just keeps going downhill. The universe is just so massive and there is so much going on and how am I suppose to retain the whole universe worth of laws and characteristics and numbers into my tiny little head? I don't understand. But the work is okay, and I'm managing.
The friends thing is going alright, I still hang out with Ashley a lot and I have good friends in every class except Astronomy and Stats, so it could be worse. I think I've figured out why I miss my social life at home so much, beyond the obvious. I don't have any guy friends here except David and Brian, who I knew from home. I'm not sure what it is- whether I'm just too intimidated or they have better things to do or what, but I need guys in my life. Not really a relationship, because I don't really have time for that right now, but friendships. Guys are just funnier and way more laid back. Bleh.
This weekend I got to go home, and it was much better than the first time. Last time I felt like it wasn't home, but somewhere new and old at the same time. I didn't like it, because it was sooo different. But this time it was better because I got to go to a football game and see my best friends and it just seemed normal. Actually, at the game I ended up hanging out, for the first half of the game, with a guy I dated and subsequently obsessed over for the next two years. He has changed a lot at college, but in a good way, and it was really nice to catch up. Plus I had a chance to make sure I could still flirt, which is always important. Haha I'm lame. Either way, I miss my friends already, but I'll see them soon enough (3 weeks and counting!).
Time for astronomy. Ew.
