    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...

    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...

    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...

    And It Was Interesting

    Hehe. It's almost over, though. Fifteen days, and I'll be legal. The good news was, being in college means my parents no longer have any real influence over what I do, which is nice. Otherwise I woulda had to wait another year for that freedom. The sucky part is, you get a...
