Hey everyone! It's been a while since my last post! I'm so sorry I have been extremely busy adjusting to college life and all that stuff. Right now I am waiting for my next class to start, so I thought I could make a quick post to update you guys! Let me just say that college is amazing. As much as I loved high school and living in my hometown, the freedom I have here is priceless. Yes, the work is tough. Meeting new people can be weird. But it's exciting everyday! Later this week I am planning on writing a more thoughtful, detailed post! To end this really short update, you guys should check out the songs "the night is still young" by Nick Minjaj and "roller coaster" by the bleachers! These songs slightly describe how I have been feeling these past few weeks.
Hey there! Sorry for the lack of posts recently. As you may know from my previous posts, I left for college this last Wednesday. I have to admit, the first day was rough. Yes, there were tears. There were also feelings of loneliness. Not to mention the physical pain in the pit of my stomach whenever I thought of home, my family and my friends. It was harder for me than I thought it would be, to be honest. It has been about four days so far. Things aren't 100% comfortable and normal. However, things have improved immensely. My biggest fear was to not find real connections in friendships. Friends are a huge part of what makes me happy, so they are very important to me. My bed in my dorm is slowly feeling like my little safe place. Some of my friends here are beginning to feel like my friendships back home. The dining hall is beginning to feel like my own kitchen. As I said before, the only remedy to dealing with change is time. First day of classes tomorrow, wish me good luck!
