Just Keep Swimming

Today started out awful. My first class of the day begins at 8 a.m., so I set 2 alarms to attempt to wake me up this morning, the first at 6:45 and the second at 7:15. Katy (roommate) woke me up at 8:06. Shit. That's all I could repeat over and over again. So I hurriedly brushed my teeth, got dressed, and began trekking to the Stadium in search for my class. It is in the training facility, and I've never been inside so I had absolutely no clue on where it was. Luckily, on my way over, I saw a couple guys that are in my major and asked if they were in my class. Which means that unluckily, I had missed the first day of this class. GREAAAAAT. I missed the first class. Syllabus day/20 minute class and I missed it. I was completely flustered but vowed not to let it bring down my Wednesday.

Because class got out so early, I was able to return to my house and get some real breakfast, which consisted of my favorite: biscuits and gravy. I'm thinking to myself, Okay, today can get better. But of course, I thought too soon. Returning to my home, I tripped on the sidewalk and bit it. I don't know how I managed it, but somehow I didn't land on my hands, scrape my knees, or throw my phone on the ground. I basically fell on my face (you can laugh because I am laughing about it now)    :-D

After my wonderful breakfast, I began to go to my second class of the day, which I have been looking forward to since I decided I was going to take the class back in the beginning of October: Beginning Piano I for Non-Majors. YESSSSSSSSSSS. I enjoyed the first class, but I also realized that I am so science-brained that I have almost no musical inclinations. I will have to practice, practice, practice to be able to pass the class, but I'm very excited about it (still). AND, AND, I get to cross off "Take piano lessons" off of my bucket list!!      !!!!! I'm not doing it until the semester is complete. I can't believe I'm actually doing things that I wanted to do in my life! It's so weird! But such a cool feeling!

My last class of the day is a spin class, and yes, I get a grade in it (it's a pass/fail class). This semester I think is going to be FANTASTIC, because I am taking a variety of classes! I am taking Care & Prevention of Athletic Injuries, Beginning Piano I for Non-Majors, Spinning, Senior Capstone, Beginning Weight Training, and Freedom in Rome. That's only two classes in my major, and leaves me quite a bit of free time to be able to volunteer more through APO and practice piano. Such an awesome semester is ahead, and I can't wait for all the adventures waiting for me!

Have a fabulous Wednesday folks, and hopefully yours started off better than mine did!

p.s. One of my new favorite reads over at Travel Babbles is having a new feature each week titled Around the World Wednesday! It's a cool way to find new blogs! But you should follow her first.

  3. Hi Mal! I am so you glad you visited my blog and left your link on the comment. I love your writing, I feel it is how I think it out too. And 8am class, girl, are you crazy?!? haha. I actually managed to go through all of college without one 8:30 class. I have to say, I think that is the best accomplishment I have of all of college, lol, jk. Looking forward to following you from now on out. And hope catching up with your class wasn't too difficult!

  4. Thanks for the shout out!! :)
