I start at the University of PEI on Wednesday which is super exciting and nerve-racking as well.  I honestly never thought I would ever get the chance to attend University as I dropped out of high school when I was young, I just couldn't stick with it. I was too busy worrying about what other people thought of me then about my future. Also I was a teenager and of course what I thought was best, not what other people told me. I don't think the whole thing will kick in until the first class that I will be in on Wednesday. Canadian History the start of many history classes. I am working towards a Bachelor of Arts in History with a minor in Asian studies. I will be getting my second Bachelor in Education in the last year of University. I honestly think that if I had finished high school and went to University right after I wouldn't have appreciated it as much as I know I will now. I also probably would have ended up majoring in something I wasn't interested in because it took a long time to figure out what I truly wanted to do. Being a ESL teacher was always in the back of my mind but I never thought it was possible. UPEI is giving me that possibility and I plan on putting in as much effort as I can towards my goal, my dreams.

So today marks the start of O-week at UPEI. O-week stands for Orientation week for all the new students attending University. This means tons of activities, tons of new faces, and people to meet. Tons of new things being thrown at us. And tons of new adventures and advice to help us get that start we need. I may have slept in longer than I should have this morning but I eventually made my over to UPEI to put up my o-week pack. Adam came with me because like I had said I was pretty nervous and it was nice to have him there with me. I also got some information about possibly doing my last year of University abroad in Japan. That would be completely amazing. 

The packs that we got were full of goodies (excuse my terrible pictures I think my camera is dying on my phone sadly)

The bag they all came in

Some of the items in back, The o-week pack, a water bottle, o-week t-shirt and bandana. Mine is blue because I was on the Blue team. Would have been awesome to be on the orange team though haha.

Inside the -pack was lots of items! We have from left to right, top to bottom. Purex laundry detergent, purex crystals laundry enhancer, tresemme travel size conditioner, Velveeta mac and cheese, KD mac and cheese, Raspberry rain skintimate shaving cream, Dial hand lotion, Blistex in raspberry lemonade, Biore pore strip, Nescafe 3-1 coffee sticks, A shaver, Skittles, Trojan Condom, calamari and tzatziki chips, three pack of shampoo, conditioner and smoothing creme, vanilla almond tea, 5 react gym pack, and a sucker.
There were also many papers included about our health plans and so on that aren't pictured.

So my first class is Canadian History at 8:30 am on Wednesday. All my classes except for two are all held in this beautiful old historic building. It is so creepy but beautiful all at the same time. It is also the main building an only a 5 minute walk from my house so that will be pretty easy to get to every morning! I have so many new things coming this month, I can't wait to write about it all and keep everyone who is interested updated!

Until next time - ありがとうございます!
