FriYAY! & My First Week of Grad School!


Happy Fall Y'All!!! It's still in the 80s here though so it doesn't feel like Fall quite yet...

Well, I have officially finished up my first week of grad school. Well, kind of. My professor cancelled class on Thursday due to the Jewish holiday so we have a make up class tomorrow (insert tears). Luckily it's not until 11 so I'll still get to sleep in a tad!

It has been quite a whirlwind of a week to say the least. Between moving in, learning my way around a new city, and getting used to classes it has been nonstop. I've already turned in a paper, given presentation, and started work on another paper/ project due next week so there hasn't been much down time. I feel like I've already learned so much and it's only been a week.

I'm going to do a post in a few weeks about my first few weeks as a grad student but so far I have really been enjoying my classes. Lectures aren't so bad when you're talking about trends and predicting the future of retail!

My parents were here for a few days helping me move in and we made a point to take some breaks from organizing and hanging pictures to go explore. There are so many adorable little parts of this city and I can't wait to explore more. I think my favorite so far has been a trolley tour that we did the morning of my first day of classes. We learned so many cool history facts!

Did you know the founder of Girl Scouts was born here in Savannah and you can buy Girl Scout cookies year round in the carriage house of her old house?! Dangerous...

Anyways, this weekend will probably be pretty relaxed. I am going to try to get a lot of work done and get somewhat ahead for next week. I'm struggling with one of my upcoming research papers so I know that will probably take up a large chunk of my time. Between assignments though I'm hoping to fit in the newest Bold Type episode, I'm hooked to say the least!
