My Unconventional College Life
My first post on "The Fridge"! Just thought I'd say hello to my wonderful family, and tell you what's new with me.
I just completed my first week at college. Well, not "at" per se, considering the fact that it's a "long-distance learning" course. That means my "campus" is actually just my home. On those same lines, my "dorm room" is shared with a freshman, my "gym" is our driveway, and most nights, I end up washing dishes by hand in the "cafeteria". Yes, life is tough at my college. And after only a week, things are seeming redundant. Every morning I roll out of bed, and I lurch toward the bathroom. Lurching is my standard mode of transportation in the morning. It's like a walk, but sloppier. Anyways, I reach the bathroom and the next few groggy minutes are spent in front of the mirror, as I stand frowning at my "student body". I then take a shower, and get dressed in the "school colors". That is, whatever's at the top of my drawer on this particular day. Then I have a meal much like a normal person's breakfast, only instead of ham & eggs or pancakes, it's a bowl of some kind of cereal with a mutant name like Froot Loops, Sugar Pops, Yellow#4-Os, or CarboCrunchies. The rest of the day is spent on the computer typing essays and the like, only occasionally interrupting this routine with bathroom breaks or maybe a Coke-run. (Depending on the time of day, it may actually be a Coke-lurch.)
And so it is, day after day. I'll wake up tomorrow, and repeat it. Like I said before, college life is hard, but I'll survive.
I'm going to stop writing now, because my typing speed is steadily slowing down. Maybe I need a Coke.
