Today was officially my last first day of school unless I decide to go to grad school. However I feel like going straight to the job market and work as a foreign services officer.
Other than that my day has been incredibly long even though it was just syllabus day.
I woke up at 8:35 AM to go to devotional prayer this morning. I literally woke up and put on church clothes with a few sprays of cologne before going out to church. I actually wore my GAP outerwear since it was kinda cold. When I walked outside I saw and waved at Chasity from a distance. When I got inside I sat at a bench behind Kat’s dad. After the prayer I signed my name on the attendance and headed back home.
When I got home I decided to take a nap until 10:30 AM since my class was at 12:30PM. When I did wake up I took a scottish shower where it started out hot and then near the end I made it cold. It was pretty neat but I did not stay in the cold part too long. But after I showered I got ready for school. I ate this bun thing that had chicken and other veggies in it. And after eating I brushed my teeth and got my school supplies ready before I left the house at 11:30 AM.
While walking to the transit center nothing cool really happened. It was sunny and there were two people in front of me the whole walk there. When I got there the bus arrived promptly and I got to sit in the back of the bus. There was this cute Caucasian girl reading Kite Runner ,which, I can’t believe I still remember the name of the book. I thought she was an HPU student since she looked smart and pretty. But at HPU she didn’t get off so she probably goes to another school.
Once at HPU I started my walk to class and then I bumped into Feverlyn and Joanne who are both Lynette’s friends. They are cool and they just got out of class. Afterwards, I headed to class and bumped into professor Asselin and said how I got into his grad class. From there I went to Price’s class for military history since 1500. It seems like it will be an interesting class and Price seems to have remembered me since he didn’t need to call out my name. Thankfully, Fernando was in the class as well or else I wouldn’t know who I would sit next to.
Today in class nothing special really happened. We just went over the syllabus and did some introductions. After class I asked Price if I could get my Korean War paper back from last semester and he said he would eventually bring it. After class me and Fernando went to look for other people. We bumped into Michael who just came back from Japan. And we also met this new Japanese girl of which I forget her name. All I remember is that it was a one syllable name that started with the letter S. Then later on Kevin, AJ, and Ernie came by! We talked to them for a while and then got some food the school was offering. It was cool cause my supervisor Stephanie was there as one of the servers. The food consisted of fried chicken chunks, fried rice, pork, veggies, and this breaded pork. They also gave out complementary small water bottles. When we got our food we saw Corey and sat next to him. It was pretty cool, we all chatted for a bit before we all had to go one by one. We did, however, meet a new girl. Her name was Jamie and she was from St. Louis. She seems to really like Hawaii and HPU in general. She loved the tropical weather and looks forward to getting a job in Hawaii after she graduates. And Orion also stopped by as well and I introduced him to Fernando.
Eventually, we all had to go our separate ways around 2:45 PM. From there I went to the computer lab second floor to check on my online grammar class. I saw Asselin’s email with our syllabus so I printed that one out. And then Demel stopped by as well which was awesome! We chatted and by 3:30 PM I went to go see my supervisor Stephanie to get my HR forms signed to work again as a peer coach. It was a pretty uneventful going there. However, coming back I ran into Blaire going inside Sharky’s Cove. I then said “hello” before going back to the computer center to check on AJ. I then sat with Demel again and then AJ stopped by. Matta was there too which was cool! We chatted for a bit and then I read some revealing stuff about Protest the Hero from Reddit. Afterwards, Matta had to go see her friend and me and AJ went to walk around. We went to the LB building and then back towards the FC building. We ran into Mike, Therese, Alix, and Jonathan in this time. They all had to go and then me and AJ went to his political science class with Fagan. When we went there we sat next to Chris. It was funny cause Matta walked into the class thinking it was her’s. Later on Hiromi walked in and she took my place sitting next to AJ.
I then went on my own way. When I walked out I saw Matta on her phone looking up her classroom. I then walked with her to the computer lab before I went to the MP building to psychologically prep myself for practice diplomacy. Later on AJ sent me a text saying he was out of class. We then met up at those tables in front of MP and he said that Fagan was on a trip and class was cancelled that day. We then walked around the second floor of the MP building. It was funny cause we were pretty loud I guess and one by one professors were closing their doors.
Eventually, we had to go our separate ways because my class was starting. While heading to class I ran into Frankie. I told Frankie that he could print in the computer lab basically for free. I then headed up to class and sat next to Tyler and eventually Frankie came to class also. Today in class was pretty interesting even though it was just a syllabus and introduction day. Asselin gave us a quick introduction into grad school and what to expect. It was pretty motivating actually. As for the content in class, it was immense, he gave a good recount onto what Diplomacy is and he said that starting next week it will be group discussions instead of lectures.
After class Tyler said he could actually drop me off home. I was amazed and grateful that he would offer a ride! It beats taking a bus anytime!
When I got home I ate some day old spaghetti and these oreos from the Philippines that come in packs of three. Afterwards I went to my room and here i am typing this. I plan on using my Korean Rosetta Stone to touch up before Korean class tomorrow.
Extra: I forgot to mention that when I was at the computer lab for the second time, AJ told me that Sohee was downstairs. So I checked her out and ran into Debbie and Sohee. I didn’t get to introduce myself yet but I heard some unsettling news. Debbie told me that Sohee had a boyfriend already. Oh well, better luck next time.
