Sixth Semester First Impressions

9:42 PM

"Hey Samantha, where have you been?  What have you been up to?  What's new in your life?"
Oh, thanks for asking!  You're just too kind.  Of course I'll tell you all about my life.

It's my sixth semester at the University of North Carolina.  I have two more left.  I've decided that this semester, as well as the next two, are going to be nothing short of fabulous.  Wednesday and Thursday were my two first days of classes, and I cannot explain how excited I am for this semester.  My classes seem amazing, even though they also seem difficult.  I'm ready for the challenge.  I'm ready to work my ass off.  I'm also ready to spend big bucks on k cups, because lord knows they're a necessity.  Just so you know, I wore real clothes to class.  I almost forgot what jeans felt like, and the mascara wand seemed like a deadly and unfamiliar weapon.  Hopefully it was worth it and led to an acceptable first impression.  Enjoy this mirror selfie.  You're welcome.

I've somehow come under the impression that using my hands a lot when I talk makes me seem like more of an adult.  I've paired this with my delusional thoughts on Longchamp bags and coffee cups.  I'm pretty sure they make you automatically grown-up.  Especially when you carry around an Erin Condren and lipstick.  Am I giving you the impression that I have no clue how the real world works and I'm hoping it's based on what kind of bag you carry your iPad/Erin Condren/lipstick in?  Well, you're right.  The new, adult Samantha has decided to make appointments with career services and academic advising to get her shit together.  Don't know if grown-ups say that.  Also don't care.

Other than that, really nothing has been going on.  Just trying to get into the swing of things now that I'm back at school.  Lots of Chipotle, waking up early, and planning for the semester.  Oh, and I think I might have a crush. Wait what?  It's not a huge deal as of now, but I kind of felt like that needed to be admitted.  Mostly because it's my blog and I do what I want and it's on my mind right now.  Plus, so far I haven't found a single issue.  No red flags, no bad feelings.  I'm not even trying to fight it and play the whole, "I'm just trying to find myself right now" thing.  In fact, getting to know someone has really helped me figure out who I am and what I want.  Which is fantastic, but I hate smiling at my phone like a damn fool.  Not okay.  I don't do emotions and affection, right?  Right?!

Anyways, I'm super excited to see where this semester takes me.  My first impression of the classes, my professors, and the people in my class was extremely positive.  I'm currently creating goals and action plans to make sure I succeed in my education, personal life, and blogging endeavors.  I expect positive changes in every aspect.  I think I have the greatest hope and the best feelings about my sorority and my grades.  Fingers crossed I can be an effective PR chairman and a phenomenal student.
