Well, my blogging abilities have gone down the tubes. My apologies for those of you (Mom and Dad) who are avid readers of this lovely blog. The first two weeks of classes at NYU have been insanely busy and wildly exhausting due to the great deal of jetlag I did not anticipate. After almost two weeks of being here I am finally getting the lay of the land. Yes, I live just outside of NYC and yes, I come here quite frequently whether it is for doctor appointments or my internship at Sony. However, it turns out I have a very small knowledge of how to really and effectively get around. Thank god for the map app on the iPhone.
The first two weeks of school have gone by slowly but quickly at the same time. I am 100% exhausted all the time but it’s a good exhaustion. Four days a week I have class 9:30-5:30 and for at least two hours on all of those days I am moving, which I love. But it can be completely draining. There are some days, like today, when I just cannot handle a 2 hour modern dance class…even if for 80% of class we are rolling around on the floor. Let me tell you, X rolls on hardwood start to really hurt after doing about 20. But it’s almost Thursday, which is the day of napping. And thus far homework hasn’t been killing me, so I can’t really complain. I am still waiting to hear back from a voice teacher, with whom I am trying to have a trial lesson. Also there is that whole, summer internship, build my resume kind of situation that I’m doing very little about. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time in my life! The weekend will be good, I can sleep all day and get my life together all night. It’s such an excellent system that then completely throws off my ability to sleep properly during the week. Ah, the life of a college student. But enough whining about literally nothing, I must do some homework and sleep before midnight - this is the plan and I will stick to it!
