The P’s & C’s of my new TIME

Well, I have worked a successful week at University of Delaware in the Student Centers Office. (I have to get used to wearing non-old navy flip-flops – I have the blisters to prove it) Survived a weekend in Delaware (Well, I hung out in Philly Saturday and Lancaster on Sunday) and hopefully by next week I will be all moved into my apt. HOWEVER, I seem to have free time.

SO here are the Pro’s and Con’s of only working 20 hours…

-I can sleep in ALTHOUGH the sun wakes me up everyday at 7am
-I could start a hobby BUT knowing the future will be busy with class and other work, I have no motivation to do so.
-I can work out in the afternoon HOWEVER it’s been too hot to work out in the afternoon. Like Heat exhaustion hot.
-I can study more BUT classes haven’t started
-I have more time to shop UNFORTUNATELY low funds and a lack of Target in the Newark Area.
-More time to hang out with my plethora of friends BUT they all work 40 hours and live at least 45 minutes

Oh I could go one… but if you have suggestions on “What Laura Can Do to Occupy Herself”…. Let me know!

PS: Happy Birthday Mom

...and now she blogs

I email. I IM. I Text. I Twitter. I iPhone. So why not blog.

I think I will attempt this while I am earning my masters degree at University of Delaware. My first day is September 1st. But at this moment I have just spent my first 24 hours at my new apartment. I am living in a townhouse a mile off campus. But for the past three years, I have lived alone in a 2 bedroom apartment with about 200 students in my building. So this is a big change. Another change. I would work about at least 50 hours a week and that includes weekends and 3am on any given night. Starting August 17th, I will be working 20 hours a week. Including any weekend events I might have to be at. Change 3 is that I would work out at 6am everyday at a fabulous gym (Brick Bodies) with another RD. Her name was Ashley Staples (twitter AStapleGun – I came up with that) Well, she is in North Carolina and the commute alone would be a work out. So now I have find a good work out time and I think I will try that campus gym. Stay Tuned.. Last change is going back to school. Everything is different from when I was in school last. I didn’t work. I didn’t have a cell phone. Wireless wasn’t really around. I didn’t have a car. I had a dining hall to make me meals. I also had my friends. I lived with some amazing girls that well made me feel safe. Here I am starting new, meeting new people (except Joe Enste) and studying something that I like. Should be easy right…. My stomach is already in knots. I just want to skip all the jittery stuff and get to where I am comfortable.

Last change… my TiVo isn’t hooked up yet :-(

So as you read… you will probably read about my adventures, my ups, my downs, my dating, my friends, my living environment, my family, my job duties, my gym regiment, and of course my thoughts. I mean why else would I do this…..
