Back to School (finally)!

Saturday, January 5, 2013

After seven long weeks, it is that time again, back to school! Which means moving back into my dorm. The only thing I don't like about having such a long break? I have to pack all my crap up, bring it home, and move it back again. Instead of packing for only one or two weeks. And my room and my mind is absolute chaos!

But that's okay, because less than twelve hours from now, I will be (hopefully) be on my way back to DU! I've been looking forward to this since about halfway through break.

Winter Quarter is going to be amazing. Here are the top five reasons I can't wait to go back to school!

1. I miss my dorm room and roommate! Those are words I never thought I would say, but there they are. Our room is so nice, warm, and homey. I've decorated my side with my favorite postcards, pictures, posters, and my letters. My window looks out onto a nice patch of grass, and there's a tree. It looks beautiful all the time, but especially when it's green, fall, or snow.

2. PLP familia... I miss you guys! I miss hearing my neighbor's music, and the people in the lounge, and the boys playing Mario Kart or whatever racing game they play down the hall. The fun sounds of the family I have become accustomed to! Being able to run down the hall and get someone to kill a spider for me. Or knowing that we all have a paper due the next day for leadership because the halls and lounge are really quiet. Gah, I just miss everyone so much! I can't wait to hear about BELIZE! I'm so insanely jealous.

3. Cute office supplies, and a more organized way of keeping track of assignments and deadlines. Plus, color-coding! I've organized my stash of post-it notes, and I'm following College Prepster's study tips for how to keep track of assignments. I have a little notebook in the same print of my planner, and a matching highlighter, pen, and pencil bag (I like matching things).

4. Delta Zeta. I miss my sisters! I miss chapter meetings, making the trek to the house every Monday night, wearing my letters every Wednesday (I had to work on Wednesdays, and wearing my letters wouldn't have been appropriate)! My paddle, all my Delta Zeta stuff hanging in my room, my big sis! I can't wait for when we're all reunited and squealing and hugging and swapping winter break stories. If any of my sisters are reading this, I miss you guys! Can't wait to see you! It's been wayyyy too long!

5. My classes. Nerdy, I know. But I'm really excited for the classes I'm taking this quarter! Anthropology, art history, war and the presidency, geography, leadership... All of my favorite subjects! Plus, my professors are apparently awesome. An extra plus, the TAs for my geography class *swoon*.

I can't wait to get back to DU and start Winter Quarter. Fall Quarter flew by!

Thanks for reading,
