Back at the Home of the Highlanders

So I made it back to college on Wednesday. It’s honestly been really weird being able to decide what I do with my time. I worked yesterday and have had today off and I haven’t had any idea what to do. I guess that will be easier when classes start.

 

Anyway, when I went to the grocery store on Wednesday, the clerk who was checking me out showed me something interesting. It was a dollar bill. But it wasn’t one that could be used as valid currency. Instead of having Lincoln or Jackson or any of the figures that tend to show up on American money, it was the current president dressed in traditional Muslim clothing.

 

I started laughing in disbelief. And we talked about how offensive the “dollar” was. Especially since our president doesn’t even practice that religion. But when you have a presidential candidate who is alleging that our current president is the leader of a terrorist group, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise. And I’m ashamed to say that.

 

I really hate that people are still judging others based on race or religion. I’ve never done this because people are people and I’d much rather judge them by their character than by their background. It just bothers me that people think it’s acceptable.

 

Anyway, enough said on that subject.

 

When I got to the apartment that I share with my roommate, I made the discovery that our internet was not reconnecting, despite the order we put in to get it turned back on. So after relaxing after a long drive and unpacking, I decided to take a walk on campus.

 

And that’s when I started playing Pokemon Go. My school has quite a few pokestops and some of the classroom buildings are gyms (which will really help with student productivity :hehe: ). All in all, I caught quite a few pokemon, including 3 clefairies, an eevee, and a growlithe. Plus, I ran into one of my fraternity brothers while I was out and about.

 

Unfortunately, I had to deal with my first night back without internet. Luckily, I have a few books here and I was even able to watch the only DVD I own (Divergent).

 

When I went back to work yesterday, everything went smoothly and I was glad to see my co-workers again. Plus I got a free meal from working.

 

Anyway, that’s all for now. TTFN.
