It's day 2 here at Dream School and I've now been to each of my 4 classes. Let me tell y'all. They don't mess around at this school. I've been assigned so much work (and I went to an academically rigorous high school and had hours and hours of homework each night) that I'm not quite sure how I'm going to manage to stay afloat this year. I thought about taking a work study job, but to be honest, I'd collapse in fatigue if I have to add another thing onto my schedule!
That's the downside of going to such a small school so focused on one specific area. It's really, really hard to get into (I found out there's an 8.5% acceptant rate--yay me for getting in!) and it's a lot, lot, LOT of work. They really accept nothing but the absolute best and aren't afraid to work you to the bone here. Don't get me wrong, I love my classes. They're all interesting (even though I only requested one of them, and just got put in the rest) and my professors are fantastic.
My schedule looks like this:
Class 1: MWF 8:30-9:45
Class 2: MW 12:00-1:45
Class 3: MWF 2:30-3:45
Class 4: TTh 4-5:45
And I only thought I'd have a bit of downtime on Tuesdays and Thursdays! Nope, I'll be playing catch up from Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I've talked to several other friends at other schools and they don't have near as much work. Oh well, I suppose it's worth it in the end? And there's no time to get homesick!
OH. And I have a problem. It's a pretty big problem and I don't really know or see a solution in sight. So I come to you, dear blog readers, begging for help.
It's about a shower. To be more specific, the showers here at Dream School. Like all dorm showers, they're pretty tiny. Not much room to move around. So shaving my legs has become rather difficult. There's nowhere on which to prop your legs and nothing to hold on to. It's an incredibly difficult balancing act--coming from someone who has absolutely no coordination whatsoever, this is a challenge.
So. I know I'm not the first person to come across this problem. So do y'all have any solutions??? I can't shave my legs into the sink because, well, a) ew and b) there's nowhere to sit.
And before I leave...my incredibly punny moment the other day:
Look at me, I'm kissing ass!
