My First Month of College

Posted on the 16 September 2016 by Townhousepalette @townhousepal
Well, hello everyone~ It has been a bit since I have published a blog post here on T.P and I think I should just give you a general update of what has been going on with me.
I have been slacking because it feels like there are not enough hours in the day and I really have prioritized school than anything else, so that is why my blog has been 'meh' these past couple weeks. I am still trying to figure everything out when it comes to blogging, so bear with me.
If you follow me on Instagram (link), you probably already know where I am going to school. So I think it is only fair to be transparent about it. However, I am not going to say the name of my school here because I want you to go to my Instagram and figure it out...shameless self-promotion. With that being said, I felt like sharing my thoughts on how my transition into college is going. 
Where do I begin? Okay, lets talk about my room because I think that is a good place to start. I live in a single with AC (AC is literally the best decision ever!), but I share a bathroom with four other girls in my hallway. Prior to arriving, I thought I would have very little room, but I was wrong because I have plenty of storage for all my items.
As many of you may know, I am currently studying Journalism, strategic communication to be exact and so far it has been very fun. This is the first time in a long time that I have found a textbook actually interesting. On the 13th we had David Handschuh (link), who was a 9/11 photographer, come speak to my freshman journalism class and he also spoke later in the day which was open to the public. I can do a whole post about how his words affected me, but he mentioned how photojournalism, or journalism in general, is about asking questions, getting people to talk, have conversations to ultimately tell a story. He tried to scare the freshman class by talking about debt, but jokes on him, because I got four years till I have to worry about that #procrasination. Overall, great speaker, great guy, and, of course, a great photojournalist. Please check out his work/sns here, here, and here!
I also joined my school newspaper, The Post (link), I am on the photos and, apparently, I am on the multimedia team. I don't know how that happened, it just did. I also want to dabble in the social media team for the newspaper because you guys know how good I am at social media...
When I first arrived, I didn't realize how much I miss my squad of friends from school. It was hard not having my clique to talk and have fun with. I am so used to having them that I forgot how to make new friends. However, I am really enjoying living in my Mod and my suite mates are so nice and fun to be around. I really think I lucked out. However, I am really happy my squad has a group message, it feels like we are always together.
On an ending note, I think I have transitioned pretty well. It was hard, but I have gotten through it. I am trying to balance everything and somehow I took 3+ photo jobs this week, I don't know how that happened. I got a Keurig and my acne has cleared up a great deal! Also, a big shout out to my friend Mejean (Meagan)! She deserved it just for existing! A true MVP. 
Happy Friday ^_^
