So my days usually start out by me waking up at seven thirty and getting ready for a class at nine. The number of classes I have throughout the day depend on what day it is. So, for example, I have one class on Monday in the morning verses four classes on Thursday throughout the day, so class is just a pen on whenever you scheduled in for. I usually spend my downtime in my room. Whether he's taking it now, catching up on sleep or doing some homework, I can just do for my room. Ah, homebody myself. So he has been here outside time, going to the library. You have to catching up on work or just socializing with friends. And yeah, that is majority of my day. I usually hang out with my friends.

And he's also I met him now throughout my years here. Howard and yeah. So wait a second. Wait a second. So when I first wake up, I brush my teeth so they're impersonating quick. Oh, my Oh, right. It's a nice and minty fresh turn off the light. And yeah, uh, sorry, but also in my routine is after I brush my teeth, I get dressed, which I'm about to do. And then I'm going to grab something to eat. I'm usually a cook in my kitchen, but I'm a crab, something from Starbucks. And I'm going to show you guys some of my favorite places that I do off campus and also to show you how to take the metro. Oh, my God. So this is my roommate. Eat. So say hi. Nice to meet everyone. Hey, eat. So So what? Where you're from? How you doing? I'm from Atlanta. My dad's Nigeria. My mom's American. My dad's Howard alum. And, yeah, we're both sophomores. Are Howard? Yes. So how do how do we come across each other? Like how What was the process of us becoming roommates? Well, we got placed randomly, but we moved in earlier. You coming? We actually ended up having a lot of mutual friends. What you didn't know about, You know, I have never seen me on campus before. Wei have lot of mutual friend so worked up because we get along well, they do. Have you enjoyed your time so far? Yeah. I have software used. Definitely. I feel like there's more responsibility. Like a significant more my responsibility compared to freshman year, but reaching adulthood, we have to get us up together. So I'm excited for what's to come. Well, happy Friday. We made it through the week. Today is, in fact, first Friday. And that's when we all gather in, punch out and just enjoy the day. Have a big party and I'll eat together as one big re like a society, Your group student body. We all come together, so it's a fine time. So that usually happens in the afternoon. And yes, Hey, morning, everyone. It's first Friday. Uh, I'm doing my makeup and I'm really happy because today I only have one class so I could just enjoy. Yeah, I can enjoy my day and get a head start on the weekend. It's Lee. So this is what it looks like when I wake up. I have some patients of my friends on the wall from artwork and this is my desk. I like to keep a white board in here to write down things that I need to do because I tend to eat is busy usar clause e. We both have our own individual sides. This is my roommate side. It's so cute and I love her plants. Our windows. Very decorative. Great job. There's a saying right there. My sweet planes, we all share a kitchen so it has a market waves seeing great. Also share. So that is the set up for seriously. So this campus is located on and around pretty important, um streets in D. C. So we're located along Georgia Avenue in. To my knowledge, it's the expansive extreme that raise and in all the way down in my way of getting around Georgia is by taking the bus so we can take the bus for free, using our Howard IEDs. And, yeah, they have different things along Georgia's such these places thie eat shops. I like to go thrift ing along Georgia Avenue, so it's nice to get out and kind of explored what's around campus and what you are able to see. Hear why you're attending Howard. Another notable place or spot is you St. And that is where people going to go out at night, different places to go and explore. Hang out with friends. It does get pretty packed, and you never know when going there, but it's pretty fun All right, so we are off. I gotta make sure I lock my door. Then I got one more door alive. So I'm writing wearing a little rain jacket today because it is a little cloudy, uh, protected chance of rain of seasons here. How we're are pretty much the forces in. So you know, winter, fall, spring in summer. But you know, it's been crazy, like, so see and waiting for the elevator on the eighth floor. So gotta wait for a little bit. But other questions that I ask is so I live in Towers and Towers is like a sweet style, most proper classmate. But I'll show you guys where a freshman dorm looks like in freshman dorms are usually like doubles with communal bathrooms in the hallway. And there's also other styles. Storms where you have your own room and they have a sweetmeat and you share a bathroom, or it could be sometimes triples, thanks But this storm is really nice because there's laundry on each floor and then also there are communal study rooms on the very first floor called the Plaza. Have my door. And also there's a C store. So Julia shared that earlier than it. See stories somewhere like a grab and goes kind of seven eleven style. That's okay. We can use your dining dollars for your airplane to grab something. CIA. It's like the the marked areas, you know, space. I'll show you guys downstairs what looks like there's like a cure. There's more communal spaces down here, and it goes all the way down, and there's, like, separate cubicles and stuff, all right, But we're gonna head to start ups to get something to eat. And then we head to my favorite third story, called So my freshman year here, how I stayed in before noon and eggs, and this year I am staying in West Towers and the way towers, he said of this kind of apartment style. I do have a roommate, but we share a kitchen with another suite mates. So three of us to a room. It depends on which choice you choose, one picking your housing. So I'm going to be shared with you, My three dorm essentials that I think are reporting while attending. How so my first one would be to bring a vacuum or to grab back while we're here. It helps with getting little scraps off. Deploy, since we are sharing spaces, so that's definitely important. This second one would be a desk lamp or a lamp of some kind. Sometimes it can get kind of dark while you're here, and it's becoming a night time. So having that source of light is definitely important. Plain living in these types of doors and the third one will be to having large basket. So whenever you do decide to do laundry, it helps with keeping your colors together. So minimize this confusion and along the way, you'll see whatever else you need to have for your dorms, but those things are key to
