So, it’s no secret that I haven’t blogged in a while.
Let’s see what’s happened since last time…
My boyfriend and celebrated a year, I moved… I also managed to make above a 3.0 my previous semester which I haven’t done in a long time.
Oh, I also managed to be fortunate enough to join a Harry Potter and Philosophy class…? It’s so much more than it sounds. For those who haven’t been a part of a specialty course, here’s what you need to know:
- They are 9 times out 10 going to be 300-level or higher. A.k.a.: Do not attempt if you have no background in the subject it’s categorized as. You will most likely end up hating whatever it’s paired with by the end of the semester, or at least by your first term paper.
- If you’ve only watched the movies to Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, or whatever your specialty class has been paired with, be sure to read up on the subject. As cliche as it may sound, the books are better than the movies…
- Try and not over think the concepts you’ve been handed. I can personally attest to this. I just got out of our debate against Ravenclaw and we lost by a single vote, mostly because our concept on the subject went way over everyone’s heads and we ended up confusing more people rather than gaining their vote. Believe me when I say, “Simplicity is bliss.”
So, in addition to this lovely adventure of a class, I have moved out of the dorms entirely. I’m now in a 2-bedroom with my roommate from last year and I gotta tell you, it’s the best decision I’ve ever made, honestly. We have so much more space now and we’re not having to live on top of each other now. (Literally, we had 3 different levels in our room last year. It was insane!)
Still having some issues with my learning disabilities, but I have a way better handle on them now days. I’m getting better grades than I used to. I feel like I’m finally back on track with my life and I can’t tell you how relieved I am.
My life isn’t perfect, but I’m okay with where I’m at. I accept that there’s room for improvement, and there always is, but I’m happy with where I am.
