I don't know why I'm quoting Billy Madison. I don't even like Adam Sandler.
ANYWAY, here I am, back in Chicago, going to class again...though I guess I was taking classes over in Rome too, huh? Well, those classes were so much more fun.
There are so many times where I wish I didn't double major, where I wish I wasn't premed so I could stay at home with my family over the summer instead of taking classes...
...but then I realize how LUCKY I am to be able to receive an education like this. I have to remember that college isn't what it's like in the movies (at least, not in my program). It can get lonely, tedious, boring. You're not partying every night--you're studying, volunteering, doing research, anything you can to get ahead.
Like my dad says, life is a marathon, not a race.
And look at the views from my dorm room!
Our campus with Lake Michigan in the background.
Skyscrapers of the North Side of Chicago
The Information Commons (i.e. our library)/Cudahy Hall
The newest building, Cuneo Hall, and Mundelein Hall
My good ol' friend Mr. "El" Train
Once I get into the swing of it again, school won't be that bad at all. Besides, this lake view will keep me
distracted focused on my studies, right?
