Well this has a been a relatively tame week. Easter holidays are officially over so there’s activity back on campus. Between a few review classes and one exam I spent more time on campus this week than I have in a long time.
Well it’s not every week I manage to go to church, finish an essay, and celebrate LDOC. If you’re not sure, LDOC stand for Last Day of Class. Wild right. How can class be over even though I didn’t have it in the first place right? It’s amazing how fast time is flying by here and now I somehow only have 2 more months left in town. But enough about the future, this week has been full of several milestones.
You never realize how big a difference five hours makes. That is until you decide to watch U.S. sporting events five time zones away. Was it worth it? Completely. For the first time, I picked a Super Bowl winner and UNC unexpectedly beat Dook. So, it’s been a good week here even though my sleep schedule has been completely thrown out of wack.
Well I’ve done it, I’ve made it through my first week of classes at King’s. It’s been a long week of figuring out where everything is and how classes are run, but I think I’m finally starting to get the hang of everything here. It’s been unnaturally sunny this week and I think that’s helped me adjust a little faster than I otherwise would have. This week also marks the first time I’ve been truly happy since I got here.
It’s only been a week and yet somehow, I feel like I’ve been here for a month. The days have all run together and I’m amazed at all I’ve learned in just the first couple of days. From quickly learning to be more self-reliant to how other cultures view and move through the world; this week has a been just a taste of what I think this semester has in store for me.
