Being a freshman was fun. And just like all other good things, I don’t want it to come to an end. But it must. We all move on to new and greater things at some point. I mean, if I think back on it, there are so many times when I did not want to change, and then the change turned out to be fun:
- I never wanted to move houses, but I have had wonderful memories in each new house to which I’ve moved.
- I rarely want to watch the old movies my dad insists on showing us, but they always turn out to be really good! (Well, that’s not really a change…)
- I was really frightened of learning to drive, and now I’m starting to enjoy it.
And now, here I am, reluctant to let go of the title “freshman.” Why is that? I should excited to be growing older, (and hopefully wiser).
The truth is, every time something changes, it actually stays very much the same. I thought my life would change drastically when I turned 18. But I’m still the same silly, excited, muddled girl that I was when I was 12. However, I became more confident, and I met new people, and I became more independent, and I had new experiences.
It can only get better.
I just have to embrace it.
It was fine. In fact, the night that I wrote that last post, I went to an orientation panel where all the PC’s (Peer Counselors) basically told us that they had the same feelings as me. Some of them didn’t even meet their friends until after freshman orientation.
As you can tell, I’m feeling better. I have met a really special friend, and some other really great friends who make me feel happy every day!
There isn’t much time for me to write, but I can’t wait to tell you about my ‘college experience.’
-Get a bike. Your legs will thank you!
Alright, I really have to go and finish my essay.
Reslife contacted me today. They’ve fixed everything, and now I have a single! This is better than anything I could ever hope for 😀 (I mean, who knows. It could have smelly bathrooms or low wifi, but it’s only 3 weeks. I’m so thankful.)
When I say it’s only three weeks, I better explain myself: I decided to be a commuter student, but my college has a freshman orientation program where everyone must live on campus for three weeks. There’s also a one-week freshman thing during winter break as well.
Other News: I just finished a 4-day photography camp, and I had so much fun. I’m definitely out of the dumps.
