The non traditional way.
As most students go away to college, I live at home. This is for several reasons: financially-it is much cheaper to live at home when you live ten minutes away from campus. Traditionally– in most Indian/Muslim families the unmarried females live at home until they get married. Dietary- I eat halal meat which is basically like Kosher meat, so its easier to get food at home. ( not like I spend much time at home anyways)
The negatives of living on campus are that you have a limited social life as well as freedom to drink and party. Lucky for me those factors don’t come into play for me. I have an uncanny ability to make friends with pretty much anyone that I meet. Through classes, work and clubs I have been able to make friends. And for the latter part, I don’t drink or party so limited freedom works well for me.
If I ever need a place to say after a long night of studying I have friends that let me crash at their place 🙂
And truthfully this lifestyle works for me, I have thought about living on campus my senior year if I get the RA position which pays for room and board.
At school I am pretty busy with classes and 3 jobs. Yes, I said three, but they don’t take up too much away from studying time.
Internship: Friday: 12-1 and Saturday: 9-12
Abs class( I stopped teaching cardio because of my back 😦 ) : Tu and Th 4:30-5
Book store cashier( just for the first 2-3 weeks of school I am trying to save up money for a car?): I just interviewed for this position so I am not sure when I will be working but, its not for too long so I will be free when my classes start to get harder.
^ Its really not THAT bad 🙂
I just ate lunch at my on campus deli- they make fresh sandwiches.
On white bead I got:
- Provolone cheese
- 1/2 scoop of tuna
- bannana peppers
- feta cheese
- a handful of chips 😦 – I love something salty and crunch with tuna)
– The man making my sandwich goes ” wow you have more veggies than sandwich!” Sana: “Its better that way!” Hehe.
