First Year at University

Hi all! Before the proper post starts, I wanted to introduce the author – an old friend of mine, called Tasia. I’ve known her for about a year, and she recently got back in contact with me after disappearing from the Blogosphere. She’s a lovely person and – well – I’ll just let you see that for yourself.
From Elm ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello there everyone who follows Elm ๐Ÿ™‚ My name is Tasia nice to meet ya.

I am just starting university and OH MY GOODNESS I am stressed.  I live in Las Vegas, Nevada and currently go to the University here.  Can I just say it’s more than I ever dreamed it would be?

It’s only my second day and a few disasters have happened but overall, I am having a good time.  But obviously all you want to hear about is the bad stuff am I right?  Of course I am.

So first off, I was almost late to my first class!  The parking lot was so full that it took me 20 minutes to find a parking spot, and it ended up being in the WAY BACK of the lot.  I then had to walk from my car, across the campus, to get to my class.  I had 15 minutes.  I had to hurry.  I made it, don’t worry, but after that class I had a short 30 minute break so I decided to stop off in the library to grab a cup of coffee – my second mistake.  When I swung my backpack off one shoulder to just quickly reach in my bag for my wallet the strap that I still had on SNAPPED OFF!!  I don’t know how it happened, it wasn’t like it was an old backpack, it literally was a BRAND NEW BACKPACK.  But I had to get to class so I didn’t have time to go put the broken backpack in my car and make it back in time, so I carried a broken backpack to my second class ever at uni.  Finally the class finished and I made the long trek to my car and swapped my backpack for my purse and just carried my materials, but when I locked my car I heard a male voice say “hey”. IT WAS A 40+ YEAR OLD MAN!!!! I awkwardly said “hi” back and started to walk away very quickly as he proceeded to go “you’re cute” and I was then panicked, said “THATS NICE” and walked away as quick as possible.

I decided on my way back into campus I would chill in the library until my friend Hanna got out of class, when on my way I head many protestors.  Or preachers.  I don’t know which you would call them.  They were yelling about how no one should bother going to church because Jesus isn’t there and all this other baloney and it was very weird.  I sat in the library and realized by this point I was quite hot and sweaty considering Las Vegas is around 110 degrees when it’s summer and after noon.  So I became very self conscious about smelling bad so I sprayed a little spritz of perfume under my armpits just in case and then the guy at the table across from me made a face and got up and left the floor of the library.  Personally, I think my perfume smells good but I made him RUN AWAY.

Needless to say my day was VERY INTERESTING and I now just sit in the very back of the library away from everyone because I don’t want to annoy people with my WONDERFUL SMELLING PERFUME.


If you enjoyed my misfortunes at University, have no fear, there will be more.  Go ahead and head over to my blog and read along as I fail at being a human :]

  1. That was a pretty interesting day in the university ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ha ha, the bad things that happened were comical but I’m glad you still had a good time on your first day~ ^_^ That 40+ man though was a bit scary- at first I thought you had placed your stuff in his car by accident XD

  2. Hey Tasia,
    So as of a month ago, I graduated from a 4 year undergraduate degree in university. I just want you to know it gets better, trust me. There is no need to worry because eventually you’ll get to know where your classes are and you find ways to get there quicker. I suggest you take a couple hours out of one of your days and explore the school. I did when i first started and trust me it makes a difference. Now for parking. parking always sucks and that is just how it is I cant help you there, I suggest when you explore try and find the best route from the parking lot to your first class. The conversation, now that’s just creepy so hopefully, you won’t ever see that person again. I just want to let you know that most of the bad first day things happen to everyone so not to worry and I will end by repeating my first statement, IT WILL GET BETTER. lol so have fun because the memories you make in university are things that you’ll remember forever. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. OMG! The conversation was so creepy! I’ve been exposed to a couple of those not even at school/uni! 0_0 One day, I was walking around the neighbourhood and that man who could be a grandfather to me was walking towards us. I looked who was walking past us and it was a old man, he say me looking and when he walked past us, he said something with a smile – I think he meant ‘Hi’ and when I looked back he was standing and looking us walk away with a smile….. 0_0 One of the weirdiest moments of my life! Old people do scare you man, they are trying to be young!
