People always told me to cherish my high school moments because it goes by fast. Well, I got no warning about college what-so-ever.
I have a couple of weeks left in my dorm and I'm so overwhelmed. I can't believe I have to think about where I'm going to store all my stuff over the summer when it seemed like just yesterday I was wondering how I was going to get it all here.
Almost a year ago, I chose that I was going to attend Baylor University. Then about eight months ago, I stepped foot onto campus as a freshman. And now, I'm rushing to make sure that everything is ready for the summer and that I'm ready for finals. I already registered for classes for sophomore year — it's pretty crazy.
It still shocks me when I realize that I'm a college student and I've left home to attend a university. I still don't know everything, so how could I possibly be a sophomore?
I'm so excited to see what's in store for me in the next three years, but it's crazy to think I'll never come back to my dorm again. I'll never go visit my friends in their dorms or have sleepovers. I'll be living in an apartment and have more responsibilities on my plate.
Being in an apartment will definitely be nicer, but there's something about freshman year in general. It's special and you get to start it however you choose. Yes, it is a year of firsts and there will probably be many mistakes, but it's also such a great experience.
As I think of going back home, it's sad to realize I won't see my friends here for almost 3 months. Even though we're leaving freshman year behind, it's so amazing to see how far we've made it this year and everything we have left.
Despite leaving freshman year behind, we have so many more memories to make whether it’s doing the Seminole chop in Doak, coordinating our Halloween costumes, or just chilling at the house. We’ve all come so far this year, and I can’t wait to see just how far we go.
So bring it on, Sophomore year, I’m ready for ya.
