On Wednesday I started my sophmore year of college. Crazy to think how fast time is passing by! Already it has been so busy!! Leading up to the first day, my car went to the shop on Monday and I had a lunch with the Alpha Sigma Tau ladies who are helping get our new chapter set up. Tuesday was just work and laundry. Wednesday was the first day!!!!! Man oh man, I am so glad to be back. I am already very stressed but hey that's just how it works right? :) The first day was filled with friends and professors reading us the syllabus. This year is so much different from last. I have friends on the first day! Wednesday, we went through all of our class until 2pm, then we had convocation and I am part of the choir so we sang the Alma Mater at it. It was my first time singing at it but it was so fun! We also got a new president, so that's exciting!! After convocation, some of my close friends and I took pictures and had a first day lunch/dinner at chickflia. It was so good to catch up and just be back in good ole Lebanon. After our meal, we headed back to campus. When we got there I had to go to my interview that I had set up with Alpha Sigma Tau which went very well. Thursday things were going well. I only have one class on Tuesdays and Thursday at its in the afternoon so it's perfect! Well when I got to school, my car mouth functioned. I was pulling into my spot and it just stopped. So we had to have it towed and now we are justing for a part to get here. Later, my mom's best friend came to pick me up and then I had to go to work. You could say this week has been eventful but it hasn't ended just yet! Friday, I babysat the cutest little boy for eight hours! Yes, eight! I felt like a mom! I loved every minute though! While I was watching the sweet boy, I got a text asking to meet the AST girls in the evening. So immediately after getting off I drove back to Lebanon. When I got there, they told me I was accepted into the sorority!!! This is SO exciting!! I then drove back to Murfreesboro (in my mother's car) to a friend's birthday party. We went to see War Room. Guys, it is such a good movie!! I highly recommend that you go see it. Saturday (today), had been relaxing. My mom and I went with our church ladies to a ladies day. It was very uplifting. I always feel like I am the youngest lady that attended these but girls, college age is welcome! All ages are welcome!! It is so encouraging to do stuff with these ladies. They teach my and encourage me just by being around them. We needed the day with a celebratory dinner at home with the family (mom, dad, Sam, Samantha, & myself) for my mom's birthday. Her birthday is really later in the week but we decided to do the family dinner early. Present will come later!. I baked a chocolate circle cake with chocolate icing and sprinkles. We put it with vanilla ice cream and it hit the spot. Now time to relax and repeat the same busy schedule Monday.
Until next time stay busy-- xoxo, Rachel
