one week down

so the first week of my sophomore year is officially over. it's kind of a surreal thing to think about. i only have classes on tuesdays and thursdays, 7:30 am to 1:45 pm. i know the early morning class makes me want to cry just thinking about it. after my first day i had this feeling of anxiety build up in me realizing how much i need to FOCUS this semester. that is the biggest key to me doing well this semester. the awful part about all my classes are tons and tons of reading. it is slightly stressing me out. fall recruitment started yesterday, first time going through on the other side. it was so much fun, but very exhausting. i can't wait to get new members in our house, especially since we just got the whole house remodeled with new furniture, painting, a new fire sprinkling system, etc. it looks so great! i am currently obsessed. the first football game is on thursday against utah state which is awesome because i have been having withdrawals from football recently due to my all of a sudden busy week. i feel real good about this fall. i can feel it.

orange sky

for me, music is a way to get away from reality for 3 minutes. it's what
can change my mood instantly. i find that music can mean so many different
things to certain people, depending on their experiences they are going through
at that moment in their life. it's weird how a song can remind you of that
certain someone or that moment when something life altering occurred.
one song in particular that i am obsessed with is orange sky by alexi murdoch. i could listen to this song over and over again and have a different emotion each time.
one question, what would this world be like without music? i would really not
like to think of that, music seems to be the only thing that stays constant in
my life.

a list

august has hit. i knew july was going to fly by. i am not complaining though i am ready for school. i have started a list of things i still need to do before school starts, maybe it will make the last part of summer interesting.
1. unclutter my closet. see if feng shui-ing my room actually works. my closet is exploding, i never thought the day would come where i go shopping and don't buy something because i am trying to picture where that piece of clothing will fit into my overpacked closet. i think that is my mothers voice inside my head turning into me. eek.
2. read a book. i haven't done this at all the entire summer, which is weird with all the time i have actually had. any suggestions for a good read??
3. finish buying books. i bought most of my books for school. is legit. classifying it under one of my best friends. but there are a couple books that i still need to get.
4. start running. i have made a goal to get back into jogging starting august 1st. that goal hasn't really started unfortunately. it's too dang hot after 10 am and i have the worse time getting up in the morning. tomorrow is the day, i can feel it.
5. cut down on the dc. diet coke has become an addiction, so i am planning on only having one a week until hopefully it becomes a once a month thing or not at all. water really is the best drink.
6. go on a hike once a week. a couple weeks ago i went hiking with my mom and enjoyed it wayyy too much. now i just need to make time to do it once a week.
7. camp. my stepdad got this killer new camper that i still haven't had the pleasure of enjoying.
8. boating. haven't gone boating once this entire summer. it is depressing to think about.
9. start packing up. move in date for the deeg is august 21 so i need to start getting my life all together in boxes. i am so excited to move in. i think fall semester is going to be unreal.
10. spend time with the family. my mom and i promised each other we would spend AT LEAST 8 hours a week together. i know it sounds awful promising such a thing, but it actually is really hard, with how we always seem to be home at different times.
11. get in one more road trip. i love these. and i get to experience one on saturday thanks to j. greer. we are going to stay at her house in san diego for a couple days. can't wait. i love the beach.
12. and last, ENJOY THE REST OF THE SUMMER. cause i know when that first snowflake hits the ground, i am going to be missing this 100 degree weather.
