Day 2

Well, today was HOT in Oklahoma once again. I am ready for some cooler weather!

I had two classes today, plus chapel. The first one required an impromptu speech which was exciting. The professor commented when I was finished that I would make a good presenter so that was kind of exciting! I'd love to be a manager in the HR department of a company some day. Or a family counselor so I think presenting and all of the communication classes I am taking are helping me out!

Chapel was good today. I love the worship there. SNU's singing group (they travel in the summer together singing at camps and such) lead today and it was really cool. I know many people despise attending chapel but I really enjoy it. I don't feel sorry for people who don't want to be there.... you knew when you signed up for a Christian school that this was mandatory... it's good for you!

My last class of the day was the one I was dreading the most. I am a little worried about the professor; so I guess i'll just see what happens. Come to find out, the book she put online earlier in the summer as a requirement for the class is not the book that she wants to use. I don't like to procrastinate, so of course I ordered my books early online and already have them. I order them off and get many of them used and 1/2 off the regular price. So, I had my sociology textbook and last night I was reading one of the chapters. I looked online again, just to make sure and sure enough, the book that was required had changed. Sigh. So, I had to go to the bookstore, pay full price for a new book. I now have two different sociology textbooks. Anyone need my old one? haha.

I picked up my crimson card, which is full of places who give deals to college students. There are like 12 local places with discounts which is nice. Then I came back my room and dropped my phone. My new phone case, that I bought last week, shattered instantly and I dropped ice all over the floor. Exciting afternoon!

I decided to go to Aldi and get some food since I didn't have any in the room. I bought some water and fruit. I really wanted avocados, but they were hard and expensive. oh well!

I also had to go get an extension cord at Home Depot. My desk happens to be far away from any plug in. I had to find a 3 prong one to fit into my power strip. I didn't want to sit on the floor all semester to plug my computer in and do homework!

Well, I'm off to do some reading before I have to go to a meeting tonight.

Happy Thursday
