So many naps
I wasn't a nap person until I got to college and I probably hadn't napped since I was 5, but I rekindled my love for sleeping. Trying to balance school, work and a social life has taught me how to sleep on buses, power nap for 10 minutes and schedule at least 2 nap opportunities a day.
I'm the type of person that needs a certain amount of time outside a day. You can usually find me laying on campus lawns in between classes to soak up some vitamin D and thawing from relentless classroom air conditioning. Just like a kindergartener, I need my designated outside time. And when you just got out of a 3 hour lecture, a patch of grass can feel like this.
Trying to make friends
The first day of college orientation reminded me of how kids make friends - you like dogs?? I like dogs too!! I guess we're best friends now.
Arts and crafts
Glue sticks and markers left my life during middle school and high school, but now they're back with a vengeance. Making posters, dioramas and visual aids are here again and I'm not sure how I feel about it. I just signed up for a ceramics class for an art GE credit . . . wish me luck!
Missing my mom
When I started kindergarten I cried every day because I couldn't just stay home with my mom. I still feel the same but now I just cry on the inside. I hated not seeing my mom every day so I call and text her 24/7 when I'm at school.
Desperately wanting snacks
College has taught me I have no pride. I'll join any club, go to any meeting, and sell my soul to satan to get free food. Life was so much simpler in kindergarten when you knew snacks would be provided. Why did that ever stop?
