University Begins and What That Means For The Blog...

9:00 AM

So I really never wanted this day to come, but sadly, it's here. I would have liked summer to last forever or you know, Peter Pan to come visit me and not Wendy so I could be a kid forever, but I guess you know that didn't happen.

Today is officially my first day of classes at the University of Toronto... and I'm both nervous and excited. I'm not living on residence (it's so expensive these days it's not even funny!) so I'm still staying at home and commuting to school by the TTC (subway). My high school was beside a cornfield, so attending school in downtown Toronto is going to be a big change for me to say the least.

With the beginning of classes now, I'm probably going to be slowing down the amount of times I post so I can focus on studying. I get sidetracked pretty easily so I'll probably still end up blogging more than I really should, but if I'm quiet for some days, that's why. It also means I won't be able to comment as much on other blogs as well.

These are my textbooks for the fall semester, excluding the calculus one which I still need to buy. (Why do textbooks cost so much!?)

The physics one (top left corner) scares me the most right now because not only is it really thick, but I'm also not the best at physics but I need to take it. The one beside it is for sociology, the three below are for biology, and the package one on the far right is for chemistry.   

I'm going to be reading and blogging as often as I can, but as you can tell, I'm going to be pretty busy for awhile with my schoolwork to worry about!

  1. Congrats on starting university!! I keep forgetting that undergrad only started this week, because graduate classes (at least at Western) started last week. Wow, those are some intimidating textbooks! I graduated with a specialization in history, so those subjects are very foreign to me, haha. Good luck with everything! It might seem difficult at first, but you'll definitely get into the swing of things soon.

  2. *hugs* Good luck!!
    As someone who has been there, my advise to you is to take your time. You'll find a pace and a routine that will allow you to keep up with your school work and still do all the things you love to do, it's all about balance, responsibility and time.

    Also, don't worry about physics, it's easier than it seems. And I find it sort of comforting that if you do everything as you should, you'll get the right answer, every time.

    Again, Good Luck!

  3. That's really exciting. You're going to have the best time and at a great school. Don't worry about it seeming a little scary at first, you'll do great. :)

  4. Hope you enjoy your time at university! It always takes a little bit to get settled in, but I found my university undergrad experience to be really enjoyable. The life of a student is an enviable one, for the most part :)

  5. Thanks so much guys!! You're support and advice means so much to me! I'm horrible with time management but I know I'm going to have to fix this soon. ^_^

  6. Good luck with your studies. What are you taking? And don't worry - you will figure out what works for you with balancing school, homework and blogging.

  7. Chrystal- I'm taking Life Sciences. And thanks for the comforting words! :)

  8. I just started my second year of Uni, and trust me, once you get into your routine, everything will be fine. It can be challenging at times, but you'll come to enjoy it; I have surprisingly lol
    Good luck with your classes!

  9. Thank you so much Laura and good luck to your studies as well! :)

  10. Good luck at school! Those are some serious looking text books!
