Today was the first day of classes … and I must say, it turned out a lot better than I had imagined. I woke up this morning extremely nervous; in fact, I hardly got any sleep last night. As I got ready, my heart started to beat more and more and all these thoughts were just rushing through my head. I always try to think positively, but this morning I couldn’t stay away from all the negative thoughts. It was such an emotional roller coaster. I started to text all my friends who were starting their senior year in high school and told them to make it a good one and on top of not wanting to get lost my first day or have bad professors, I started to miss them and high school. Yeah … high school … I actually missed it for like five minutes. It was so weird to be getting up and getting dressed and going to totally different classes and a totally different place than all the people who I’ve basically spent most of my life with.
Even now as I am typing this, I still can’t believe today happened. I’m here and everyone else is somewhere different continuing their lives and figuring out what they want to make of it. Kind of cool in a way, that so many other people are going through the same thing all of us freshmen are going through.
To sum it all up, I saw many many people today … campus was crazy packed with human beings everywhere. I also thought about a lot of people today and reminisced about high school, and although it was a great time in my life and I missed it for about five minutes this morning … I can honestly say I’m quite excited to be where I’m at. I love all my classes and I’m pretty sure I have the coolest professors (so far). Can’t wait to see what tomorrow holds. Here’s to a great year of new beginnings and hard work!
