I spent the week before USC move-in in Boston because I figured that a trip with one of my best friends and getting free airfare/housing (Thanks Dad + Rachel’s sister!) was more than enough reason to visit one of my favorite cities. We did tons of sightseeing and eating (lobster really is better in Maine…), and outdoorsy things that I didn’t expect to enjoy as much as I did.
We hiked some 5,000 feet, which involved me dealing with both my fear of heights and my fear of small spaces; luckily, with some help, I survived! We also went kayaking in an estuary, where I got bitten by a spider. My texted pictures to my mom and I ended up spending my first morning at USC in the Health Center…haha.
Since I’m only a sophomore, syllabus week is still a thing and the past week has been pretty easy school-wise. Living with close friends is definitely different from living with a random roommate because it’s a delicate balance of maintaining your friendship while dealing with any problems that arise. Game Day lived up to the anticipation and even though the game itself was a bit boring, it was fun to tailgate and watch the game with my friends.
Ray came home last night and we got boba just like old times :) And then in the most eventful thing to happen to me this week, I got hit by a car while biking across a crosswalk. Luckily, the combination of the car turning and my getting knocked off my bike to the other side meant that I came out okay, just a bit bruised, scraped, and in need of ice packs and a new bike. The person who hit me was actually a really decent guy and met up with me and my family earlier today to pay for my replacement bike.
I can’t wait for the rest of the year :) I want to change my major, raise my GPA, and get my exercise on four times a week. Here’s hoping I succeed!
