Maybe you're wondering why I'm on campus already when class begin tomorrow.... No? Oh, well I'm going to tell you anyway. Last year, I was a first-year Bonner who was required to attend Pre-Orientation to adapt to the new Bonner community. This year, I became one of the leaders for the new Bonner first-years! I had such a great time getting to know twelve new people and do different activities together. Last night, a senior hosted all of the new first-years and Jennifer and I at his apartment and all of us made personal pizzas together :)
So even after a week of being back on campus, I am still not done unpacking (I think I have too much stuff, need to research on minimalism :D ). I tried cleaning up my side of the dorm the best that I can and here are some of the pictures that I took. (Jennifer- You're welcome. I didn't show your side)
In other news, a fun fact about me is that I have never set foot in the gym inside Mac's Leonard Center. Until today. Jennifer and I along with some first year Bonners decided to go work out together. Since I woke up with a pretty bad sore throat, some light-headedness, and a potential cold, I decided to just do about 30 minutes of exercising: 15min on the bike, 15min on the elliptical. As you can tell in the picture below, Jennifer was overjoyed about her workout. Personally, I'm not looking to get super slim or anything, but I just want to start exercising again (I did pilates for a while in the past) to feel healthy and to give me a reason to eat more food. The latter reason is probably closer to the truth.
I know this post was a bit short, but I've been so busy with Bonner and meetings and unpacking that I almost(!) forgot that I had a blog. I might talk about my new classes and school involvement sometime in future posts. I'm definitely way more involved in the Macalester community this year (with leadership roles) than last year.
I'm excited and anxious for my sophomore year to begin!
