    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Week 1 Overview

Prior to the 1st day of classes, I had a checklist that included items such as:

  • Order textbooks (Amazon 😆 )
  • Buy supplies and groceries for first 2 weeks
  • Check syllabus for each class
  • Update Google calendar with class times and work times

Most of that didn’t go well. I couldn’t find some textbooks (ones that were cheap and within my price range that is), I forgot some groceries after paying for them at Cub Foods, my calendar looked frighteningly busy for a first week of classes:

My schedule for the first week of classes

To make matters worse, after forgetting my groceries, I realized the first Friday of the semester was Payday. But sadly that didn’t apply to me as I had not done any work prior to the semester starting. Despite that, I slowly got into the groove of things and made use of whatever free time I had, before the real semester started in the second week.
