The Struggle Bus

This is it – the last few weeks of the semester. It’s really strange to think about. It’s all been a whirlwind, truly, because it feels like just yesterday was move-in day. I’m feeling really nostalgic, yet really anxious at the same time; I’m not necessarily ready for this semester to end, but I’m more than ready for next semester to begin.

You see, I’m not one for routines. Or structure, for that matter. I enjoy being spontaneous, and this semester isn’t really that spontaneous to me. That’s why I guess I’ve hopped onto “the struggle bus.” I’m moreover stuck in the stage of B+ to A-/A range, and that’s how I’m struggling. I want more than anything to make As, yet I’m struggling to maintain the few point differences between to the two! I didn’t even take high school as seriously as I’m taking college, which makes me know that I could’ve done much better in high school. Oh well.

Oh, and today’s November 1st! Fun fact – a year ago today is when I submitted my Early Action application to Butler, and guess what? It paid off! It’s also family weekend this weekend, but mine isn’t coming up due to the drive (7ish hours) and the fact that they’ll be making the drive once again for Thanksgiving.  Neither really necessarily help with my nostalgic feelings currently, but it’s nice to reminisce from time to time! I’ll use this weekend to catch up on school work and movies on Netflix while all of my friends are out with their families!

My roommate Layne, my friend Jensey, two SOGs, and myself at the Play Fair during Welcome Week. Nostalgia at its finest.
