Day 8

Thinking you get to sleep in because class doesn’t start until 4 but then realize you have to wake up at 6am for an appointment

The only benefit of being up so early was getting this view of the sun rising from campus

Being stuck at the emniyet müdürlüğü for 8 hours in an effort to get my residence permit

Getting home after the headache that was today

Day 6

Finding new, comfy places on campus to hang out/work

That feeling when you know every single location/object/artifact that your professor talks about in lecture and are asked to expand upon certain topics to the rest of your classmates

Realizing you have over 150 pages of reading for one class due tomorrow
