You wake up to the sound of your Oh-so-lovable alarm buzzing in your ear. The clock reads 9:10 A.M. as you tumble out of bed. When you finally wipe the sand from your eyes, you experience a moment of déjà vu.
I’ve been at Lehigh for over two months now. In that time I’ve changed a lot. The high school-er I used to be has vanished off the face of the planet. Now I’m a bonafide college student which is really a whole different beast. One thing that hasn’t changed though, is the monotony of repetitious daily activities. I don’t like getting into the same boring routine… it’s… well… boring. With that in mind, I’ve been trying to come up with a list of things I can do while I’m here to spice up daily life.
Objective 1: Go track down the Bethlehem Star- I’ve heard it’s a thing… but never actually seen this thing.
Objective 2: Next time it rains, sit down and eat popcorn whilst watching the storm pass by. I can’t help it, nature is pretty awesome.
Objective 3: Successfully slide down a railing. Sure, this has the potential to be a bit dangerous, but hey, what’s life without a little risk?
Objective 4: Learn how to juggle. *drops mic.*
Objective 5: Rent a car, take some friends on a road trip, hopefully to a waterfall. It’s been far to long since I’ve sat in a waterfall.
