    My First Semester...

    This is my first semester of college. I'm not a huge fan of it so far, I guess cuz I am too attached to home and stuff. I miss my parents a lot, and my pets, and my home church, and my friends, and everything. College is just something I will have to live through a few years of...

    Mixed Feelings.

    I, too, started college at 17. I have yet to decide if it was a mistake or not. On the one hand, there was the academic challenge. For the first time in years I was with peers that could not only keep up with me, but challenge me. I was on my own, for the first time ever. I...

    And My First Day Was Today !

    I started college, today ! I only got one class (Spanish), but it was fine. It's different from high school and I'm perfectly okay with that. I've never enjoyed school that much, though, I know this year won't be like the others I've known. Also, it's good to see that people seem...
