The last two weeks have been very hectic to say the least. I successfully moved out of the Towers and stayed with my mom in Manhattan for a week. It was nice to get a break from school and work. On June 2nd, I drove back to Newark to move into my new apartment! Luckily, everything worked out smoothly. One of my roommates is also here, so together we have set up our rooms, cable, and internet (you know, the essentials!).
In addition to getting settled at my new home, I have started working full time! This summer, I am a Summer Blue Hen Ambassador (SBHA) which is a program of about 22 current UD students who work in all aspects of the Admissions office including processing applications, answering questions via email and phone, working the front desk, and of course giving tours. This week was primarily training and a “get to know one another” week. It’s been a blast and I’m really enjoying the job as well as my co-workers. I’m looking forward to mastering all of my skills throughout the summer!
I know that everyone says this, but time flies. I can’t believe that I am going to be a Junior in college! I am so proud/happy/relieved/scared about all of it. This year was hectic and challenging in many ways. I got involved more around campus, worked, maintained our little apartment in the Christiana Towers, and juggled increasingly harder classes. Although it was difficult, this year was really rewarding and I’m sad to see it go. Moving out is totally crazy and as a result has me pretty stressed out. Organizing, cleaning, and transporting all of my stuff has been a long and daunting process but is soon to be over! I leave the towers on Thursday and head up to my Mom’s in Manhattan! I am staying with her for about a week and then heading back down here to start work on June 3rd.
I think one of the most amazing aspects of my life here at UD is that it is all captured and documented right here on my blog. I can always scroll through and read my past posts and look at my old photos. It creates a personalized yearbook. I love that!
This summer I am working as a Summer Blue Hen Ambassador so I will be on campus! I’m looking forward to working and making new friends in the process. Also, I will be returning to Chicago for the week of July 4th to see my friends and family, so that gives me something to look forward to as well.
I’ll be blogging regularly over the summer so stay tuned! :) Thank you to everyone who made this year a memorable one!
