Hello everyone who's still out there!
Anywho, I am SO sorry that I've been slightly neglecting my blog : ( As most of you should know, I currently started my "new life". I am now at Colby-Sawyer College.
It's a HUGE transition and I would certainly be lying if I didn't say it was. There are many adjustments to be made from the good ol' days at home consisting of high school, home, grandma's, the shopping center, the elementary school, piano, babysitting on Saturday. That was my life and I was happy with it. Now, everyday is a little different and very different from the life I used to live.
I currently have five classes: Intro to Psych, Individual and Community (Intro to Sociology), Intro to Religion, Writing 105, and Desire. They keep my days kind of full? However, there is so much free time! I'm finding it very easy to get my homework done, so don't worry about me not getting homework done : P
The picture above is Colgate Hall. It is the very front of our campus, the centermost part on the Colgate Loop out in front of the school. I would argue that it's the landmark of our school a little bit. Here's the back of it by the quad:
I currently have three classes in here. Last spring when I followed an upper classmen I was informed that since I'm a Childhood Development major, I will have lots of classes in here.
This is the Ivey Science Building where I have a class. It's one of the newest additions to campus, I believe.
I think that this is one of the coolest buildings on campus and I know you all will back me up because of the crowd I'm talking to! Anyway, this is the library! It used to be a working barn. So the entrance is (what used to be) the silo. I think it's pretty darn awesome. Hopefully you can see well enough on the picture!
I'm staying in a suite, so that means we have two bathrooms (each with a shower and toilet), two sink areas (each with two sinks), an extra storage area in the middle of the suite, a kitchen area with lots of cupboards, a sink, table with four chairs, and a TV (that no longer works : ( ). Then there are six bedrooms off of the "main" part. There are four of us freshman (including me) and then seven upper classmen. It's been difficult adjusting to the living arrangements, but it's okay. I think I'll be able to handle it, it's just not ideal (that would be home! Lol!).
So, that's kind of college life wrapped up pretty quickly, lol! Now for the medical update. A little over a week ago I visited my rheumatologist because it was time for a check-up. My wrists had been bothering, but especially my left one. So, he decided to give me a cortisone injection right about there:
Except on the left wrist, of course. It wasn't too, too terrible getting the shot, but since then I have been in a lot of pain! It's relentless. So, he wanted me to get x-rays, start taking prednisone, and go for physical therapy. The x-rays came back fine, the prednisone doesn't really seem to be helping, and I go for the therapy on Monday morning, 8 am! Yay...so there's new news, but not at the same time lol!
There's also been something else going on, nonerelated to the arthritis, but I have to go for a test on Thursday and I got some blood work done. So we're waiting to find out if the doctor's suspicions are right.
Yes, I'm still reading Wicked! I'm actually over halfway now, but it's been super difficult trying to find reading time here : ( I'm also participating in Joy's Christian Book Club, so this month we're reading Havah by Tosca Lee. You all should check it out (both the club and the book!)! I am also reading Children of the Alley by Naguib Mahfouz for my Religion class. It's actually much more interesting than it sounds : )
I'm still trying to find time to finish up the Blogger Awards Banquet. Be on the lookout for it because I feel like I'm really close to finishing it! Now I just need to make sure I remember all the awards I have to include, lol!!
Okay, once again I appreciate all of you guys for your constant support and for not giving up on me. I think that once I get into the swing of things here, I can get back to posting more regularly, but I'm not exactly sure what I will be posting! Ah well, it will be figured out soon enough : )
Thanks again! I've missed you all so, so much!!!
