Transitions and Changes in College

Last First Day

Last First Day

I didn't picture myself writing this blog at home. As I sat at the dining room table, cornbread browned in the oven, NFL football blared from the living room, and the trees sparkled with frozen crystals of ice in the sunlight. I was supposed to be in Clinton, snuggled on the love seat in my tiny apartment, savoring a hot cup of tea, only a stone's throw from the campus that I have called home for nearly four years. That was the setting I imagined writing about my last first day of class, yet things change. The fact that my last first day has come announces this truth: things do, in fact, change. This day signifies that what once began will draw to a close.

Today, I'm going to attempt to share some of my wisdom with you, friends. If you're about to come to college, this is for you. In a few weeks, you'll load your cars just like a did all those summers ago and there's a big chance that you'll feel the rush of change upon you, too. It'll be overwhelming at first, and maybe even a little hard, but it's so important that you embrace it.
