Towards College

I't almost 1am and all I can think of doing is writing. I'm starring at the blank space waiting to be filled by my overflowing thoughts. I received my laptop yesterday aftern being torn away from it for weeks. That is one less thing to worry about, since I thought I might not have it back in time to go to college. School starts Tuesday Jan.18,2011 and orientation is Jan.17. I will be taking a road trip because I live very far away from my college, which won't be a problem later on, because I will live on campus. I don't know who my roommate will be or anything about what my college experience will end up being, but I am very excited to find out. I'm tired of wondering what will happen, and I am ready to jump in and fully put myself out there. I had a great Christmas and a good New Year's Eve. These holidays were definitely a better experience than the 2009 holidays. Those were for the most part disasters.
When I look back at the year of 2010 I don't see anything that I would want to change. I traveled to places I've never been in and outside of the country, seen relatives I haven't seen in years, been built up and crushed, and most of all I have grown to become a better person. My real wish for 2011 is to have a better year than 2010, and discover myself more, without worrying as much about my future fitting an image I have in my head. In college I hope that I become stronger and independent. As independent as I felt in my "vacation" state, once I got home that went south. It's as if I am expected to be this self-indulgent, lazy person. That is an easy habit to fall into, but in college everything will be up to me. No family to crawl to when I fail, just me to make sure that I keep going. I can easily say goodbye to 2010, because it has been one of the best and hardest years I have had to face, but life goes on and so will I. Not always at pace with the rest of the world, but I have heard that it's not always a bad thing to make your own path in life.


  1. Hope the college experience is all you ever thought it would be, and more!

    Lets own 2011!

  2. be independent in college, but definitely find a good group of friends. I can't imagine how this last semester would have been without the friends on my floor. Where are you going to school btw?
