Anxiety issues

This weekend has been freaking hell.  Left home at 9 a.m. Friday morning to drive to my new school.  Got my keys and what not and moved all of my junk into my new room.  When we walked in there was two people's stuff in the room so we ended up having to ask someone what was up.  That was fun.  Finished setting things up in my room and went to orientation. Orientation was... long.  Informative, but long.  There weren't many people there because it's the middle of the academic year so not many people probably transferred or started during spring semester.  At the end of orientation there was a raffle.  Because there were much fewer people at the end than we had started with I ended up with a size L t-shirt.  Good to sleep in at least.  From there we made our way slowly to my brother's house.  The weather was not very kind to me.  We slipped and slid all over the road but we made it.  Later that night my brother and I wandered into the blizzard to get free Taco Bell.  By the time we got home my ears were frozen and I could barely breathe.  But I enjoyed those tacos.  My mom kind of took charge of the place so my brother and I weren't really able to do much, and I had to hit the hay at about 12:30 because I had to get up at about 6:45.  I probably fell asleep closer to 2.  I woke up and prodded my mother into walking with me, who in turn prodded my brother awake.  Her argument was "wouldn't you feel bad if something happened to me walking in the dark by myself?"  Well wtf?  What about me? Apparently that's a sacrifice she's willing to make.  

The testing was a pain in the ass.  I had to take the Praxis 1 math, reading, and writing tests.  I was pretty confident in my math until about halfway through and then the guessing started.  Hopefully if I don't pass them all I will at least pass one.  And to make things worse... I registered for the tests while I was at my previous college, but the tests were also being administered at the college I had transferred to.  Meaning I didn't have to drive 40 minutes away in the blizzard.  Oh well, at least I got to see my brother.  I took a nap after I got home thinking I would get to hang out with my brother all night.  But I was awoken at 3 p.m. and told we were leaving so I had wasted the time I would have gotten to spend with him.

We stopped to get a few groceries on our way back to my college.  At one point we got rather lost, but after some backtracking we were good.  Unfortunately my mom decided to spend the night instead of trying to brave it back home so I didn't get to sleep in my bed for a second night.  As much as I complain, I am kind of glad she was here.  My roommate didn't move back in until today (yesterday?) so I would have been alone for a long while which would have sucked.  The minute my mom walked out the door I got homesick.  I'll suck it up though.  

My best friend came to see me.  My college is much closer to hers than my home is so we get to see one another more often.  I took a shower before she came and had to fiddle with the shower for a bit before I figured the damn thing out.  My roommate showed up before her and we did the obligatory introductions followed by a long silence.  I didn't know what to say and she was unpacking so I just let it be.  Things livened up a bit when my friend showed up.  Apparently my friend's roommate is friends with my new roommate which is pretty weird.  Small world.  I got to meet several of my roommate's friends as well.  They all seem pretty friendly.  My tension level fluctuated throughout the night, but it definitely wasn't as bad as it could have been.  I certainly feel welcome.  It'll take me a while to get used to things I'm sure, but they showed me where my classes were and took me to eat with them and they didn't have to.  I'm very appreciative.  I just hope my roommate doesn't get sick of my following her around.  I'm never sure If i'm actually annoying a person or if I'm annoying them because I keep asking if i'm annoying them.  

My classes start tomorrow at 10 a.m. I'm not super nervous just yet, but I'm sure I will be in the morning.  I've got two maps and my schedule so hopefully I'll find my way.  The only thing I'm worried about right now is getting a supplemental loan to pay off my books, computer, and car.  As an education minor I'm required to do outside work and I need a vehicle to get myself places.  In such a case I think that's an educational expense.  I have the car paid off, it's just in need of some repairs.  I hope things go the way I want.  I'm pretty worried.  I'll be talking to my parents tomorrow about co-signing for my loan.  I also need to get a new job.  I wonder if I shouldn't just go with work-study and take the monthly payment.  As long as I can afford my phone and insurance I'm good, and those are both monthly payments.  I'll need to ponder it a bit more.  I think I'm gonna call the boyfriend and head to bed.

haha, so you and your friend could go out as a group of 4 with your roommate and her roommate! :)

and that's the same with me! I'm never sure if I'm annoying them by following them around so much or if it's because i ask them if i'm annoying them way to many times.

ahhhh long lost sister much? lol
