Closing Time

My first year of college, come and gone already. I cannot even tell you where this year has gone, but it has done exactly that. It seems like just yesterday I was moving all of my stuff in with my parents. I remember the room being a complete disaster as my roommate and I had boxes upon boxes, refridgerator, micro, computers, bedspreads, containers, tv, fooood... As my parents left I felt a whirl wind of emotions come before me. I was sad to see them drive away; nervous to have them gone; anxious to live with my best friend; nervous about meeting the new people on my floor. It was a scene taken right out of a movie. The parents drive off and the little brown-eyed girl is on her own. I have experienced so much this year, more than I have in my entire lifetime. I would definitely say that I am a new and improved individual. The new friends that I have made, the choices I have had to make, the mistakes I made, they all have helped structure who I am right now. In 8 months I have changed my life for the better, and I couldn't be any happier. College is what you make it. You can be that kid who doesn't go to class, parties until the sunrise and sleeps all day long to get up and do it again, wastes his parents money on alcohol and late night pizzas. Yeah, that would be fun and quite possibly "the" life for a lot of people. Or, if you're like me, you realize that four years of partying and not caring just isn't the life for you. I've come to realize that I want to live my life as healthy, positive, fun and worthwhile as possible. College is that in-between stage, that time when you are finally on your own yet you have so much opportunity to do whatever the hell you want. I haven't quite figured out what I want to do with it, but I'm living it, and I'm living the life I was born to live. May the next three years of my life continue to be as prosperous as this year, and may I only continue to grow...
