This time of year always reminds me of track season; when the grass is wet from late-night showers, the sun shines intermittently through the rain clouds and of course, my legs were too sore to climb the stairs. On top of the stress of practice, homework and weekly meets, I was figuring out where I was going to spend the next 4 years of my life.
I’m not a good decision-maker and the May 1st enrollment confirmation deadline was rapidly approaching. Had I known what I know now, the decision would have been crystal clear. I knew I needed a school that could guide me to figure out my passions and also challenge me academically and socially.
It’s hard to actually picture the way your life will be a year from now. Senior year to freshman year is a drastic jump that is heavily influenced by your surroundings and the lessons (inside and out of the classroom) that you learn. I know what I expected from freshman year was much surpassed and can’t imagine myself on any other campus.
Spring Jam is this weekend which really doesn’t help with the spring fever. I’m really excited to go to the concerts and watch all the competitions but these next few weeks are crucial in my classes. I’m taking Friday and Saturday off from studying/writing papers which probably isn’t the best idea but with all the work I’ve been doing, I deserve some play. Sunday I’m cracking down. Finals, here I come.
