I get to go home this weekend for the first time and I wasn't as home sick until I started actually planning to go home. I can't wait, it's only been a little over a month, but it feels like it's been way longer because I haven't seen any of my family for that long. It's just still so weird that I have to visit home.

I am glad that my apartment is starting to feel more and more like a home. I think that it is more because of my roommates and people that I am around that make it feel better being here. Even though my apartment has weird 'quirks' we've gotten use to them. I don't even notice it most of the time now. It is very different living with four and a half girls. (half because one isn't here most of the time... we don't know where she goes...) I think that I have become more emotional here than I ever have in my life.The other night Angela, Chelsea and I were sitting around the table doing homework and I was getting frustrated at my paper I had to write. I don't remember what I did exactly but it made us all start to laugh and then out of no where I just start crying. Then we laughed even harder after that. I don't know if it was because it was 12:30 at night or what but that has happened to pretty much all three of us. Yesterday we were telling ghost and scary stories and after one of them I got a little scared. I went to the bathroom and when I got out Angela was crawling on the hall way floor and it scared me so bad I backed up into the wall and fell down. So apparently I am still spastic and klutzy. 
I have realized that milk goes so fast! I didn't realize that until I started buying it myself. That is with all groceries. I thought mom was going crazy for how often she goes shopping but now I am doing it the same. It's actually really funny.

I have a mail box and so I would love to get letters from anyone and I will try and answer them back. I love when I get mail here. It makes me feel happy and I don't get to hear from anyone that often and I just love getting letters for some reason. So if you want you can send me a letter or whatever. I will put my address somewhere on Facebook just because I don't think I trust to put my address on here. Love you guys!

3. Buying cheese
4. Our stove smoking every time we use it
5. Our generator sounding fan at night
6. Frizzy hair
7. Men
8. Sore muscles

Here I am

Well I started this blog to be more informative to my family or who ever wants to read it I guess. I apparently don't make enough Facebook status updates so this is my solution. I started college this month and so far it has been fun and busy. Except for this Labor Day weekend, which literally no one seems to have stayed here with the exception of myself and my roommate, Chelsea. Anyway, college has been way better than I thought that it would be. I am meeting new people everyday and my professors are all interesting. My English professor reminds me of a hippie version of Jim Carrey and for those of you who know the TV show Boy Meets World, my Art History professor reminds me of Mr. Feeny.
Before I moved here I was scared of what it would be like to live on my own. I was scared to suddenly not have the support of my family. Having to cook my own meals with the hope of not poisoning myself. Not to have my mommy there to ask me if my homework is done. And yes mom, it is done. I was worried that I would be homesick.
I am missing home, but not as much as I thought I would. Living here isn't as much as a change as I thought it would be. My roommates and I have made a home away from our normal homes. I do my homework, I don't cry EVERY night wanting to go home, and so far my cooking hasn't made me or anyone else sick. Yet. I guess that I was expecting this huge change in my life or that I would change, and even though it is a turning point in my life, it doesn't feel like I've changed. The thing is, I haven't. It's just that I'm in a different location now.
I am liking, no, loving that I am out of high school. College opens up so many new opportunities that we all seem to be blind from when we are in high school. High School was not my 'thing' to say the least. I never seemed to 'fit in' or I was the weird one. Being here just two weeks I realized that it shouldn't have mattered all that time. I wish I had known that then because maybe I wouldn't have gotten into things I did. Here I can be myself and guess what? I still have friends. REAL friends that don't judge or even care where you were in high school or what you did. They care about the you NOW. It's not all about material things in life, it's about getting to know someone and getting an education. The important things. (I sound like an episode of Doogie Howser) Anyway I will try and do this often and I really hope I keep this up. If I'm not then I give who ever reads this permission to kick my butt into gear and update this. Love to all that read this.
