Home Sweet Home

I moved into my apartment last week. And though it is small and not top of the line, I love it. It is so good to finally have a place to call my own. I have slowly gotten some unpacking done and I have been reorganizing the furniture until it is just to my liking.
What was supposed to be a couple hours of organizing and "home-ifying" last night turned into staying up until 2 am putting up shelves and making everything seem more like home. It's beautiful in its simplistic way and I love it!
The guest bedroom is still a mess of boxes and chaos but it will be taken care eventually. I will get it done before March even if I have to stay up into the wee hours of the morning (again).
School has been challenging so far this semester but, for some odd reason, I am enjoying it. Well, I take that back. I am not enjoying ART 113 and all the wire sculptures I have been making. But this too shall pass and I will be stronger afterwards. :)
My favorite classes so far are my World Lit. class and my history class, which really isn't that surprising for me. As long as we don't start reading poems or anything, I will be fine!

Well, I am off to work on some more homework!

Here's your update, Honey!

Well, honey told me to update. So here it is...
I survived my mini-session and got an A out of it! :)
I'm really glad I did it. It was amazing to get that class out of the way in a week rather than a semester. And now I feel like this semester and summer school will be a breeze after going doing that class.
I found an apartment! It is practically on campus. It doesn't look like much on the outside but it is nice on the inside, and for that price I am not complaining! I will get the keys tomorrow as long as they get dad's signature back quickly enough. Which means I'll probably be living in there for a few days without furniture.
It is really a blessing that the timing worked out this way. I was already planning on going home for the weekend for Poppa's birthday. And it will be a great time to bring a truck load of furniture and things back since we have Monday off. I'm not sure how I will like living completely by myself but we shall see!
