Homework... barely.

In my first week of school I'm always looking for homework so I can stay ahead of myself a little. I find myself settling for recopying notes and reading chapter 1 of books I'll never be tested on instead. I have a few homework assignments for the weekend finally but still nothing big yet. I have good news about my future projects though:

I have to do a presentation on a 13 page chapter (that's really short) with Kevin (the cousin I live with).

Sounds so easy. It's a big relief.

Hopefully chaos strikes soon... I feel uncomfortable being so comfortable with school.

Day Two

Today was a little different than yesterday. Kevin and I found out we don't have quite the same schedule. I rode to campus early and did a little reading before my class but he wasn't going to wait 2 hours for me to get out and give me a ride home. That means that today was my first bus ride to North Grand Rapids.

Usually my experience on the bus is a mild one. Everyone else attends Grand Valley and has a backpack. Not this time. This was the first time I've ever been asked to show my Grand Valley student ID (students ride free). Immediately I noticed I was in different company. I was the minority. I shuffled my way to the back of the bus where I sat quietly without stirring next to a homeless guy and his trash bag.

Nothing bad happened. I didn't really expect it to. It was just a different experience. I expected it to be the way it was... I work at The Burlington Coat Factory... everyone that rides that bus shops in my store.

Back to School

Today was my first day of class. I only had two classes; Behavioral Aspects of Safety and Ergonomic Safety Engineering. Can you guess which one I'm the most excited for?

Ergonomic Safety Engineering. My project is to give a report on tennis elbow and Kevin's is carpel tunnel.

What's the other upside? I don't have any classes before 11:00am. Oh, and it only took Kevin and I 15 minutes to get to the shuttle to the CHS building that all of our classes are in. That's a full 10 minutes less than it takes from Allendale.

I'm in my new apartment, most of my stuff is unpacked. And get this:


Finally... I've been needing to check my bank account.

Pictures to come soon...

I'm really slacking here. Friday is my big move out date and I plan to post pictures when I get settled. For now my news is:

I have a new computer. Rest in Peace laptop, you are now replaced by a desktop. I will remember you always as the portable piece of crap that you were.

Sorry for the lack of blogging. I'm sure I'll hear about this at a later date (the next family get together).
