I posted in my 2014 Hits & Misses that I finally completed my AA at my local Community College and have now started going to an University!!
I started last week and to be honest my thoughts about transferring were bitter sweet. At first I was overly excited about finally being able to go to an university (I was kind of bummed out when I didn't go as a freshman). But, I was also hella nervous and still am to be honest. Transferring from a school of a few thousand people to about 40,000 people is drastic for a shy gal such as myself. Being on a huge campus is like being in a new city.
On the first day I got lost 3 times lol. Note to self: NEVER try to "find your way back" to anything. You WILL get lost. I got lost going to my first and 2nd class. Then on my way back to my car I walked almost 3 miles out of the way because of these 2 identical parking garages smh. I rounded the corner thinking, "oh my car is just on the other side!" Boy was I wrong!! My 2nd class was so freaking cramped and hottttt. I almost dropped the class. Why the hell are we paying thousands of dollars in tuition to be in a small ass classroom with no AC?? What is my money going to? Someone please tell me! Unfortunately I couldn't find another class to replace it so I kept it. I don't regret it so much now because my prof is pretty chill/funny and the class is actually interesting... go figure!
One thing I have noticed about university is the workload is reeeettaarrrddeeedddd. Like damn can I at least find my way around before I'm swamped with work?? Apparently not because by day 2 I was suppose to have read the first chapter of all of my textbooks and taken notes. I know, I know, I'm an adult and should be on top of this shit. Plus this is college in general. Nobody is there to hold your hand so I have to get with it. Blehhhh we shall see how this all plays out because I'm terrible with time management when it comes to certain things. However, in less than 2 years I will finally be graduating with my Bachelor's degree and home free!!
