Barcelona Day 7.

Today was the first day of school! I felt like such a little kid starting kindergarten for the first day. I was just the right amount of nervous, scared, and ready. My Monday and Wednesday schedule isn’t too difficult, so today was quite a breeze. The thing I was most afraid about was my late Spanish class which is held from 5:40- 7:25 at the campus 20 minutes from my dorm. Walking to and from was quite the exercise, but it really wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I only got lost once, but thankfully I have internet on my phone to help me navigate my way back home. I must admit though, that I do miss the way ‘first day’s of school were in high school, because in high school there were ice breakers. Teachers then would always try to get the people in the class to know each other better. Now that I’m in college, professors don’t really do this, and it is kinda on your own to get to meet people. For me, that’s the hardest part. I really am shy if you don’t already know me. Most people don’t believe it, but it takes a lot for me to stop being the quiet girl in the corner and mingle with people I’ve never met before. Though I’ve experienced a year of college already, this semester is going to be completely different for me. I’m in a new place, with new people, and still trying to get adjusted to being so far from home, but I guess that’s all apart of the growing up process. Before I know it, my program will have ended and I’ll look back onto my first day of school and think of how silly I was for being so nervous. Adios!
