General Update: My Bookish Life pt. 16 (I forgot the last number)

Hi from Providence! I’ve finished up my first week here at Brown University, and I’m loving it so far. I’m taking a journalism class which is taught by a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, so it’s a bit intimidating. I’m starting to find my place here.

This week I…

I started my first week at Summer@Brown! It was tough leaving my parents for the first time, but so far I’ve been keeping up with them and my other family pretty well. I’ve made a lot of friends, and it was sad seeing some of them leave yesterday. (Some of them had one week classes.) There’s a beautiful main green in the middle of campus that I love to sit and do homework and hang out on. There are a ton of people here and sometimes it’s the people watching that is entertaining.

My roommate is pretty awesome. She and I are pretty good friends and I hope it stays that way. She’s from the Dominican Republic so it’s fun to learn from her.

I haven’t finished a book this entire week. I know. I’m behind, but not at the same time thanks to reading 5 last week. I’m slowly making my way through Girl Against the Universe by Paula Stokes. It’s really good so far. 🙂

ICYMI here’s what was posted this week

Today I’m…

Going to Boston! There’s an off-campus trip to Boston today and I’m so excited to go. We’re taking a chartered bus there. It’s only about an hour away, so I should get some good reading in 🙂 Lia (my roommate) is going too, and I think we’re going to the aquarium. It should be awesome.

This week looks…

Like another week full of class. I’m in class from 9-3 every day except the weekends. Usually she breaks us at 12 so It isn’t really that bad. I like having a morning class because I wouldn’t know what to do with myself with the time before or after class because it’d be an awkward time to have!

How are you guys doing? Tell me something good!

Happy reading!

Sophie 🙂
