I can’t believe my first year of college is over already. It went so fast. Finals seemed to come out of nowhere, and they ravaged my brain and body for the past couple weeks (hence the missed blog posts; I do hope you, my wonderful readers, can forgive me). Summer’s here, which means more work, and as oxymoronic as it seems after that last phrase, more play. More hours at the bowling alley will (theoretically) be balanced out with more time spent outside, more time reading for entertainment as opposed to academics, and more time writing.
The writing is especially crucial, as I managed to land a position as a student blogger for a student travel deals site called Student Universe. A little bit of extra money will be nice, as will another resume booster. Who wouldn’t like those? I just have to work on being more punctual. I’ll have to crank out 1-5 posts a week about college, travel, and other student concerns. Wish me luck.
As for the reading… I have an ever-lengthening list of books that I would like to read. Several books by Ben Mezrich (who follows me on twitter!), A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, and Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, among others, are on the first-time list. I also have a few that I would like to reread, like J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. I just have to make sure I stay out of bookstores so I can finish what I already have.
Of course, these first few days of vacation have been lazy, lazy, lazy. I love it. My little sister’s jealous. Being in high schools, she’s stuck getting up early and sitting in class for six hours a day until June. I love college.
The problem now is just getting myself motivated to do something other than sleeping till noon, sitting around in my pajamas all day, and doing nothing but scrolling my Facebook page and watching T.V. Any suggestions?
