I’m nearing a month into school and all I can say is wow, I couldn’t ask for a more perfect place to be right now. I’ve already made some great friends and learned a lot about living on my own. School can be overwhelming but I still haven’t gone a day without seeing how beautiful life really is. Managing my schedule may get a bit frustrating but I love having the power to control my do’s and don’ts.
I bought a hammock soon after moving in to school and I can’t even describe in words how much that purchase was worth. Every day I lay in it the day seems more perfect than the one before. It never ceases to amaze me the awe of nature. Overcast days show the perfect glimpse of winter and the sweltering heat is like a new breath of life. There’s no better way to just relax and think about life than this.
Labor day weekend I went home, of course, and I expected to just sit around and be bored but that was certainly not what happened. I ended up meeting with various friends throughout the weekend and I couldn’t ask for a better time. It was actually awesome seeing people again and it made me realize how much I really miss them. Although I love it where I am, it was nice to see everyone going about their lives, in a good way, and seeing their change.
In conclusion, if you’re a fellow college student I hope you’re enjoying your new place as much as I and that you remember to keep in contact with those you ‘left behind.’ As for everybody else, sorry it’s been so long! I could have sworn I posted something last week but it seems that’s a lie. I’ll try to be a bit more present now that I’m settled in.
