I hope you all are having a happy Hump Day. I’ve been enjoying a rather low key Wednesday. I didn’t have class this afternoon, so that meant after “work” (internship), I was free to roam… or crawl into bed with my textbook + Sugar Balance tea. I had planned to be sweatin’ at the gym at this time, but I decided my body could use a physical and mental rest day after 8 days straight at the WREC.
After a mini afternoon snooze (I literally rested), I got to register for fall classes! The computer system was down during my initial registration time, so I was relieved when I still got my dream schedule signing-up hours later.
I have to say, I’m pretty darn excited about all of my classes. I just hope I like my professors because, for me, that is what makes or breaks a class.

With only 3 classes on campus (+ 1 online), I have lotsa space to fill with work ($$$), additional internships, and exercise! It’s hard to believe I’ve nearly completed 4 years of college – cr-cr-crazy.
