I’m not gonna complain, though. I’m having a blast. Making friends every single day. By the time classes kick in, I’m sure I’ll have to take a day to stay in and recharge. But I’m just amazed. It seems like everyone I meet is genuinely trying to make friends and learn more about other people. There’s culture shock, and unexpected similarities everywhere. It’s cool.
I know college isn’t going to be easy… particularly not in this program. But the energy, at least for now, is infectious. I get the sense that we’re going to carry each other through it, and that’s good.
