Today we finally registered for classes! It was honestly very frustrating. One of the classes I really want for my major is full so I need to go and ask the professor if I can join. It was really hard to find a temporary (or actual) replacement class and I got very irritated at trying to read the times and decipher the course listing. It didn’t help that most of the ones I tried were during the same time of my other classes, or just ended or started at the same times.
I finally cried today from the feelings of being overwhelmed. I thought things would run smoother with school registration. I thought that I wouldn’t miss home as much. I didn’t write an entry for yesterday because I’ve been in a funk. I went to Itaewon (ended up running into Wang, a new friend from China, and we went together) and I ate at Quiznos. I’ve never eaten a sandwich that fast in my life. I really miss the slower pace and the ease of conversation. I was told everyone would go through the phases of homesickness. I stubbornly thought I wouldn’t. So much I need to learn about myself this trip.
I’m lucky that we have a nice advisor. She’s super open with us and wants us to come to her if we have any problems, emotionally or logistically.
I’m also really lucky that I have this new fangled technology called “The Internet”. With it, I can keep in contact with my friends back in the states. This tool should not be taken for granted. 15 years ago… wow. It’s amazing how lucky our generation is. Just want to give a quick shout out to Justin for being a great friend and for being the awesome night-owl he is. XD Thank you internet!
I know a lot more happened in this day, however this is several days delayed from being posted. :C I can’t remember!
