A New Step in my Life

Friday, July 20, 2012

Gosh, I'm finally growing up. I've applied at a university that's a little further away from home, so I definitely will have to move out.
I really like staying at home. I get along quite well with my mom and I'm running the house anyway. Also, it's cheaper^^.

But now, I have a little apartment in a girls dorm very close to my university and I'm so excited about it. Really running my own household, Shopping for myself and doing my own laundry and all this boring stuff seems so exciting if you do them on your own (in the beginning, I guess).

I'm also really happy to finally use my brain again. I got a little bored over the last couple of months. I'm used to studying and I want to learn something new. That, too, won't keep for very long I presume, but at least i can learn a new language and have a new routine in my daily life.

I've also already checked out how far the next fresh-food supermarket is from my dorm and the swimming pool, so i can keep up my weekly exercise routine. It's all very close to where I live and as the town is so small, i can do everything I need to do there by bike or on foot.

Now i'm running through the house and contantly making lists of "I have to take this with me" or "I need to buy that". I've already made a list in my head for my favourite books that I'm going to bring along and made plans on where to grow my basil for cooking. Stupid, I haven't even signed the contract, yet. But I'll soon do that, I've already reserved a room.

So all in all, everything's going really well and I'm finally getting some movement into my life. But I'll also miss my carefree life of sleeping in, working every once in a while and travelling.

    I recently attended my son's commencement from university. The Vice Chancellor made a comment that really resonated with me; I am a university graduate. He said that what university is really about is learning to live in a community. My daughter is entering her second year of university and she loves it. She raves about the activities and her new friends. She was even able to do jazz and contemporary dance classes in the evening which she enjoyed especially since they were not competitive classes. There is a saying that has been around a LONG time; the 25 lb gain. Most 1st years put on 25+ in the first semester. I am sure you, like my daughter, will avoid it by eating properly and exercising. Enjoy the experience!
