Classes for the first term of my junior year of college started the Thursday before last, and the weather has been killing me. I am not a heat person, keep it below 70 Fahrenheit (preferred 60) and I will be able to survive somewhat comfortably, but for the past week the temperature inside my dorm room has barely dropped below 90, even at night. The thunderstorms are lovely though.
As for my classes I am taking two art courses and one classics course. The two art classes alone take up nearly of all of my time, since the required minimum of work time per week is 12hrs per class (I have the same professor for both classes) and most often it takes me twice as much to complete the projects on time. But I am learning and it feels like my time is well spent. I miss having a hard science class but since I am reviewing for chemistry this fall I am content with it.
I also picked up a job working for the college, so now I have a little bit of a steady inflow of money, even though it pretty much all goes to books for my courses or studio fees.
On top of that I have weight lifting three times a week, cardio and/or met-cons 6 days a week, and practice atleast twice for my sports team.
All in all I am busy all the time either with classes, work, or sports, but even though I am getting less sleep than I ever have before, and I have almost no free time, I don't ever feel like panicking, where sometimes I used to feel swamped for a minute or two before dragging myself back to the surface (a veerrrryyyy slow process most of the time).
I do appreciate the weekends more now as well, especially sundays, because I can use them to work on stuff for here and relax.
Sorry about the long journal, just wanted to rant a little bit but also give an update to anyone who gives a flying fart.
