So there's this thing called college...and a Blog

That's right.  You read it correct.  I'm in COLLEGE now!
That means new beginnings and new experiences that will constantly test my ability to do 3 things.
1)  Time management
2)  Social life
3)  Connections

Time management consists of being able to juggle classes, homework, studying, eating, laundry, showering, hygiene, clubs, extracurricular, gym, groceries, tutoring, etc...
By social life, I mean being able to balance the joys of -ahem- "STUDYING" and the joys of hanging with new friends made right here in my dorm.
Lastly, connections.  This means accomplishing steps 1 & 2, but also not forgetting about what is most important to me: family and friends.  Generally, when it gets right down to it, they will be the ones who will be there for you, no matter what.  And for me as well.

So it's just the first week of classes and I've been pretty dang tired every night.  Even though I've been clocking out at 12am almost every night  (See Step 1).  But I will surely get the jest of things as time goes, and time WILL go.

I'm immensely happy with my college of choice - BEAUTIFUL San Luis Obispo.  It's very pleasant here, with the beach only 20 miles away from campus.  The possibilities for having fun are endless here...hiking, swimming, rock climbing, biking, kayaking, horse back riding (See Step 2), farmer's market, yoga, line dancing, and much, much more!  I know I'll do well here.

And now I'd like to end with a quote that I came across during orientation:

"Success is not permanent, and failure is not final." - Unknown
