Hello everyone! I have been so busy lately that I haven’t had a chance to write. This month, I moved into my dorm at Arizona State University. My room is so cute and I have already made a few new friends. My roommate and suite-mates are awesome and they make living here so easy.
College dorm room shopping is insane and I don’t even understand how other bloggers keep track of all the stuff they bought. All I can tell you is most of my stuff is from Bed, Bath & Beyond and Target. These two stores have everything a person would ever need in a dorm room. I do remember where I got my tapestry and that is from Society 6 which I found via Pinterest! I used Pinterest so much to direct me on the right path of dorm room decorating.
So far on my college journey, I’ve really only learned where to eat, where my classes are, and where to workout. Since I live in the dorm here, I was required to sign up for a meal plan. I signed up for the one where I get 2 meals a day. I now realize that I should’ve just signed up for one a day because I am far too lazy to walk to the dining hall (it’s less than 5 minutes away) more than one time a day. All my classes are at least 10 minutes or more of walking from my dorm. That doesn’t sound bad, but must I remind you, I LIVE IN ARIZONA. More than 5 minutes outside here is hell. And what sucks more is that all of my classrooms/lecture halls stay at a solid 80 degrees. After walking in Arizona’s 100 degree weather, I expect to walk into buildings with freezing A/C temperatures, but no they decide to torture me further with boob sweat and smelly classmates. Besides all of that, I actually love most of my classes. My professors are amazing. I’m sure once Winter comes around I will enjoy my time here at ASU more. Since I’ve been here for about 2 weeks, I’ve only been to the gym once… yesterday. It’s a really nice (HUGE) gym, but people are jerks and leave 45 pound weights on all of the equipment. I know I can take those weights off myself, but I shouldn’t have to and it slows my workout down. I think I have been spoiled with the gym I go to when I’m at home. Mostly everyone at that gym has good “gym etiquette.” After getting frustrated with the weight room, I found an open studio to finish my workout in.
Besides all of the negative things I’ve found while being here, I’ve also realized I go to a really awesome school. I’m sure as the year goes on and the temperatures drop I will truly love everything ASU has to provide.
I hope you all enjoyed catching up!
