As the end of the school year approaches, Sydney and I have been reflecting quite a bit on our freshman year. Both of us agree that the time flew by and that it is not possible for us to be near completing our first year of college. For me, I am amazed by how different my life is now from what I thought it would be like when I started. I had a pretty good idea of where I thought I would be; however where I am now is absolutely nothing like what I thought. I swore that I would absolutely never join a sorority, but I did. The sorority life is so much better than I expected, so I couldn’t really pass it up. All of the girls are sweet and down to earth, and there is no hazing of any sort in Theta Phi. I also never thought that I would become an RA, but look at me now! I have signed a contract, created an entire Pinterest board dedicated to door decorations and programs, and I will be back on campus on August first to begin training as a professional mom for college freshman. I also didn’t think that I could be a tutor my freshman year, but I am sitting in the learning center now waiting for my next student to show up for their appointment. Crazy.
This year has flown by incredibly fast, but so much has happened. It does not seem like it is all possible; I have learned too much in my classes and about myself for such a short period of time. Not to mention, the wonderful friendships that have formed that I hope I will still have in three years when I am preparing for graduation. I always believed adults when they said that college can be the most amazing time of your life, but now I actually understand what they meant. You never stop learning, there are numerous opportunities at every turn, and it is so easy to meet people and make friends. It has been a blast so far and I cannot wait to be back in the fall.
