Although the title of this post would suggest it is hours later than I would normally be up, my insomnia comes more from the fact that I wanted to go to bed earlier, but I couldn't because it was earlier than my body is used to going to bed. I was tired at about 8:30, but now sleep doesn't seem to want to come. So, in my non-sleeping, I will post some random things on here because I can.

Something that has been on my mind a lot lately is the fact that I feel like my personality has been altered slightly since I came to college. I used to be involved in quite a few things with school, but ever since college I've placed more importance on spending time with friends and homework than making committments to extra-curricular activities. I guess this isn't totally different from high school because I was only involved in a few things then, they were just things I really cared about. I will probably find a nook somewhere here at Belmont where I want to spend a lot of time, but at this point I'm just hanging out and enjoying life while making good grades. I don't know why this bothers me, but I guess I just feel really anti-social because all I ever do is hang out with my few friends. I love my Belmont friends though, and I woudn't trade them for the world!

We have a lot of fun together, and I've already gotten into college, so I guess at this point I can just continue having fun without worrying too much about my resume.

Speaking of being in college, I may have stumbled upon assurance that I can handle a major I once thought impossible. I know this is probably the third or fourth time I've talked about a major in this blog (and I don't update it as frequently as I think about majors), but this is one that I would love; I just question my capability. I thought about piano pedagogy as a major, but I was afraid I would have to be more advanced than I am at piano and know a lot more theory than I know. This week, however, I met a girl who is a piano pedagogy major, and she seemed to think I would be fine. To make a long story short, she talked to her professor and he wants to set up a meeting with me. I would be really excited if this worked out, so I'm looking forward to the meeting. This would mean I would have to spend another year here, but I was probably going to have to do that anyway because it has taken me so long to declare.

Although this particular anti-social activity has been fun, I should get some sleep so I can interact a little tomorrow and not lose all contact with the outside world excluding my three friends.

Free Time!

Basically, being back at school without homework and school stuff is the best. I have had a lot of time to sit and be and watch TV and just relax. It's all the perks of living here alone that I finally get to enjoy because school hasn't messed it all up. I've also become a super-blogger with all the posting I've been doing.

I'm really excited because I called the mansion this morning and I have a job interview on Wednesday. I really hope this job works out because I really need some income and the hours would be really great. I'm not going to get my hopes up too high, but I'm honestly really excited about the possibility.

I've got to buy my books today, but other than that I'm just planning on hanging out with Kristen when she finally gets here and enjoying the rest of my time without responsibilities.

Getting Over It and Moving On

I'm pretty much over the fact that we got written up for "unsanitary conditions." I'm still a little upset, but not really at Liz any more. I've cleaned everything my RD didn't throw out when she checked, and now I'm just waiting to hear what our punishment is going to be for this and hoping it won't cost me any money.

I'm writing again because I hate that I finally had some time and all I did was talk about my write-up. There is a new semester starting, and I'm excited! I'm not taking as many hours this semester because I had a little trouble filling the schedule. I'm hoping this will give me time to find a job and get used to functioning in school while working. I know I could have handled it last semester, but this way I can still kind of be a slacker and make some money which I so desperately need. I applied at the mansion last semester and they haven't called me yet, but I'm planning on calling tomorrow. I think I would love being a tour guide, and the hours at the mansion would be fabulous, so I'm really hoping this works out. If it doesn't, I am planning to look elsewhere. I feel like I haven't been worth anything so far in college, and although I survived on my own money for a while, that last month required a lot of support from the parents.

My classes this semester should be interesting. As always, my goal is not to procrastinate, but I know how that usually goes, and I will most likely continue to wait until the last minute for everything. I'm excited about everything, and for now I'm just waiting on my friends to show up and watching football. Life is pretty good.

Back in Nashville!

So, I thought I would write more over the break, but that didn't really work out. I guess it's not a big deal, but I'm still not sure where all the time went.

I'm really happy to be back in Nashville and to have a few days to prepare myself for the semester to come. There is one little thing I'm not happy about, however. When I got here, there were two slips of paper under my door. My roommate and I have been written up for unsanitary conditions, and I have to say I'm honestly a little ticked about this. When I left, I cleaned the bathroom, my side of the room, and anything else I could find. Liz told me she would handle the rest of the cleaning because she was leaving a day later than I was and there was a lot I didn't want to get rid of in case she still needed it. The problem is that Liz never gets rid of anything! I love her, and I love that she recycles, but she holds onto stuff thinking she might use it later, and she never does. It sits around forever not being used and driving me crazy. I feel bad when I purge and throw a ton of stuff away, but I don't feel that bad because the amount of crap we accumulate in here is ridiculous!

So anyway, about the write-up. I'm overreacting a little right now I know just because I hate to get in trouble. I'm sure it won't be that big of a deal, but I'm just really upset that it happened because it shouldn't have! I'll get over it soon, but for now, I'm going to be upset because I don't want to be known as the room with unsanitary conditions!
