Whaaaaaat? You’re probably thinking. February sucks. It’s cold, wet, and winter’s been dragging on so long that I’m starting to forget what summer is like.
You have a point. We have like five feet of snow here and I’ve just gotten used to the fact that I will always have rock salt in my shoes. It’s constantly blowing 20 knots, it gets dark out at 5, but in a remarkable turn of events, I’m adapting. I used to be the coldest person ever, but now I’ve gotten to the stage where I just cannot be bothered anymore. Aka no gloves, no hat, no ski jacket. It’s a miracle I still have all my fingers. But really, why is February so great?
It’s because school is finally back in swing. I missed HC so much over winter break– all my friends, actually having stuff to do, my dorm room, my classes and professors. Now that I’m back into things, it’s a little hectic; I have a due date every day this week, and that big Mellon application is due this Friday- yikes!! I’m a little nervous. But my NART professor from last semester– Professor Robert Green– is my mentor and he’s fantastic. He’s spent so much time helping me go over my application and has completely supported me. I’m so grateful he’s my mentor.
After I get through mid next week, I’m pretty clear before March break. I do have an Environmental Science test on my birthday, which I’m not 100% psyched about, but maybe I’ll get extra credit. That’d be amazing. But after break? It’s spring! And that means warm weather!
Here’s hoping spring comes early!
