The Start of My Sophomore Year

For my now 15th year in a row the dreaded day has come-the first day of school!  I am currently going into my sophomore year of college.  I was really nervous about moving back to school (it’s about 2 and a half hours from my home) and I was pretty anxious those last few days of summer.  So this weekend my mom and sister helped me move in to my new townhouse.  It was pretty overwhelming at first and I always HATE changes when they first happen but I know that once a little more time goes by I will feel more comfortable.  Also, I believe change is a good thing in a lot of ways because going out of your comfort zone is really what makes you grow and change as a person.  Sounds cheesy but it’s true!  I still feel uncomfortable being so far from home but I know that in the long run I will be glad that I did choose to go away because otherwise I wouldn’t become nearly as independent.

Another thing that I have been thinking about a lot lately is money!  Everything is so expensive living on your own.  So naturally I have been looking for a job.  My issue, however, is that I absolutely hate committing to specific times and I hate being told a schedule.. so I am going to do great it the real world! Ha.  No but honestly I guess I’ll just have to figure out a way to be my own boss because I love working hard but I don’t want to be told when to do it? If that makes sense? I know, I’m impossible.  So what?

Anyways, we’ll see how this year goes.  I’m nervous and excited at the same time (and homesick) but I can’t wait to see what happens this school year.  My first class is later today so until then I’m just hanging out and cleaning my room!
