I started out this week like I do every week. Dreading Monday and waking up at nine in the morning (which for me is early). Every Monday is the same for me — I go to class at eleven and after that class it hits me that I’m half way through the day and I only have one class left. I get all this energy as the time gets closer and closer to one o’clock. The song “Freedom” usually starts playing in my head as I start to put all my stuff into my Star Wars Darth Vader back pack.

Every day after my classes I suddenly remember that I have to go to work for a couple of hours, but unlike many people I kind of enjoy my job. Cleaning the classrooms in the gym and cleaning the fitness center is all kind of fun. I usually have my iPod with me so I can bust some moves while I clean the workout machines that are covered in sweat drops.

I love Wednesdays, because I can say goodbye to Monday and Tuesday and say hello to Thursday and Friday, my two favorite days, and I get to play basketball with my team for intramurals. Other than basketball, I don’t really have much planned out for the week; I kind of roll with the punches, and see what comes up. Sometimes we make late-night trips to Taco Bell or Burger King, where my friend likes to dance for free food, or sometimes we just decide we want popsicles from Safeway so we head down the hill to St. Helena. My weeks are never the same — I always do something different each week to keep things spicy and fun.

This week is going by super fast for me, and I can’t wait for Friday, when I get to go home and spend some time with my family for the weekend. I can’t believe it is only week four of the ten weeks before spring break, but I find that hanging out with my friends and making sure I enjoy each day makes the time pass a lot quicker. Today is turning out to be one of my busiest days yet, with appointments, work and class, but once this day is over I’ll be able to relax, go to my three classes, and go home, which will be a Friday well spent.
