Now that my first week of my second year of college is done I’m taking this time to reflect on how crazy it really was. Well it seemed that way anyways.
Last Sunday I was able to move into my new apartment for the year. Move in day seemed like it went by really fast. It seemed like I barely even had time to enjoy the day because it was just so busy. Everyone here was just trying to get everything done to help me make it my new home feel like home. Sometimes it felt like everything was done but then once we were sitting down something new had to be done.
But now that I’ve actually had time to replay the day in my head I didn’t realize how much of an awesome family I had helping me move in. I knew that already knew that but days like move in day I was just so amazed on how many people helped. Which made goodbyes really hard because I felt l barely had time to hang out with them throughout the day.
Move in day went by so fast and by the end of the day I was just so exhausted. And the exhaustion continued onto the next day. Which didn’t feel like enough time to rest for the first day of school.
Usually on first days of school I'm really excited but this year of school it just felt like another day. Not that I wasn't happy to be back but I've had many first day of school experiences. Although, I liked to see the freshmen excitement because I know how exactly how they are feeling. A new experience for a new chapter in their lives.
Summer felt so long and now that it’s over I feel like school has hit me like a ton of bricks. I have to go back to “adulting.” The homework load just keeps piling on and the list of things I need to get done seems never ending. But I know that because its the first week back I still have to get into the swings of things.
