Hello everyone, it’s been a while. Since my last post a week ago, my first article in the Elm got published, I went to my first rowing practice (which I love now), and went home for the first time.
Now I’m sick. It’s whatever.
But today I’m here to walk you all through a day in the life of a first-year student at Washington College.
7:00am- Alarm goes off
7:00:01am- Turn alarm off
8:00am- I get an nice, impromptu wake-up call from my girlfriend in Nw York as she’s on her way to her 8:30 class
10:00am- I get out of bed to shower and get dressed and ready for the day. My first class on Tuesdays this semester starts at 1pm.
11:00am- after getting dressed and checking my email, I go out to check the mail and get lunch. No mail today, oh well. At lunch I get a plate of popcorn chicken and waffle fries with a glass of red Powerade.
11:30am-12:45pm- I get back to my dorm to do some last-minute reviewing for my English 101 class.
12:50pm- I leave for my English 101 class at 1 in Goldstein.
1:00pm-2:15pm- English 101, my only class of the day. Today we discussed two works of short story fiction, as usual. We also received our first essay for the class, my first college essay. B-. Not bad, but not too good either. I’ll be sure to make use of the writing center for my next one.
2:30pm- Back in my dorm for a quick nap before…
4:00pm-6:30pm- Rowing Practice! today was my third, and i’m getting the hang of it pretty well. I’d never rowed before last friday, and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made in a while. It’s not the easiest, but it puts your whole body to the test and gives you a rewarding feeling after each practice. Today was the first time really on the water, and it was a great experience. I may not be the best, put our coach is a really great teacher and an overall great guy.
6:45pm- Dinner time. I got a plate with chicken, steak fries, California vegetables, mozzarella sticks, and a banana with green Powerade.
7:00pm-The end of the night- Homework/blogging time. I have a Bio assignment to do as well as a poem for Creative Writing.
Well, there is a day in my life as a WAC freshman. Definitely plenty of things to keep me busy and occupied during the day.
