Well one week of school is complete! It is going to be really nice to have Fridays without class this semester. I also do not start class until noon on Mondays and Wednesdays. At first, being a morning person, I was a little bit upset, but after only one week I do not think it is going to be that difficult to adjust to starting class so late.

Of course on our long weekend LA is experiencing the worst storm it has seen in over 50 years. Oh well. It will still be nice to have Monday off, and plus it’s a lot better than back home!!!

I also started guitar this week. It was a lot of fun. I’ve played the violin and piano for most of my life, but never the guitar. The first lesson went pretty well. I learned “Smoke on the Water,” and “Paint It Black.” By “learned” I mean I can play really simple stuff. I’m pretty sure that my roommates are going to get very tired of hearing the same three notes over and over and over and over again! I really enjoy music, and I think that the half and hour or so a week will be a nice change with all of my other engineering classes!!! Hope everyone is having a great start to the new semester.

Watching: trashy tv (dr. drew celebrity rehab…jersey shore…real houswives…guilty pleasures)

Listening to: smooth jazz (it’s relaxing…you can do anything with pandora!!!)

Reading: The Double Bind (If you love the Great Gatsby, you will love this!!!)
