Last week I registered for Spring classes. It's going to be a very hard quarter. I'm taking COllege Physics III, Beginning Spanish III, Marine Biology and Genetic Engineering. So GE is a 5 credit class with 8 lab hours a week on top of lecture. I've been told that you need to dedicate 20 hours alone to this class. Scary huh? I want to take this class just as much as I don't want to. Needless to say, I'm not looking forward to spring quarter.
Spring Break. A few weeks away and I'm so excited! I'm actually not going anywhere though. I'm just going home to visit all my best friends since our spring breaks match up this year. I'll always feel closest with my friends I've grown up with. It's almost like there's this bond between us all that will never break. Sometimes I think it's a bad thing though because any new friends I do make here, they just don't compare to the ones I have at home and I end up missing my home friends that much more. I always thought that I'd never want to go home when I got to college and that I'd love being away from my parents and rules and curfews; that I'd be free to party and do things I shouldn't. Actually, thats what college is about for the first few months. Then after a while you grow up; you really start missing things... how things were, the homecooked meals, a quiet place to nap, a clean bathroom, a shoulder to cry on, the people. And if you are one of the ones who has found that college treats you better than life at home, you're lucky. I strongly beleive that home is where the heart is.
