Before getting too far in to talking about myself, I wanted to thank all of you so much for such a giant outpouring of love and support after my last post. It helped so much being able to walk around campus on my first day knowing that I had so much support and that you all believe in my so much. I am so lucky to have all of you 🙂 Know that you are all loved. Every single one of you.
Anyway! I have now been in school for three days and my goodness. I am in love with it. It is everything I have ever wanted and everything I have never felt before. I leave every class with that delicious mixture of exhaustion and enthusiasm that drives me forward. My brain has been working non stop since the first day. I cannot wait to talk with you all about some of what we have been discussing in class 🙂 I feel so hungry for this academic world and being surrounded by thinking people is a treat.
As much as I hate how long it took for me to get to the U and get to this point in my life, I know that I wouldn’t have been ready for it until now. I needed to be so sure of myself and my future before I started at this massive school where it is so easy to be lost and unsure of yourself. I know what I want, I know I can achieve it, and I cannot wait to make a name for myself.
I adore my professors. Signs of their brilliance: I’m taking a science class called Natural Disasters: Hollywood vs Reality. On the first day the professors says, “So, there isn’t a super rigid syllabus because that’s not my style. Also… during each class there is usually one big natural disaster. So, until that happens… we will just wait for disaster to strike and then study that.” Then my Lit professor said this, “So, I prefer not using electronics in class but if you have to just… like… don’t click on any pornadoes, yeah?” PORN. PORNADOES. Done. Done forever.
They are all so progressive and passionate and daring. I cannot wait to absorb everything they say. The homework is so much reading and I can feel my brain muscles flexing. I have never been this tired or this moved to keep working and writing. I’m getting all sorts of story inspiration! Now I just need time to write… 🙂
I cannot wait to keep going. It sort of feels like I’ve already been back in school for 600 years and it’s only been three days but I already feel brighter and better. More soon, lovelies. I hope everyone is having as good a time in school as I am.
