Here I am sitting at the lake watching my boyfriend and his cousins get ready to tube. Just me, here, sitting on the pontoon. Sitting alone on a peaceful lake really makes you think about life, you know?
Well that is the reason I am here typing a blog post on my iPad (which is something I absolutely hate but is what I am left with. Oh well.)
First, let me begin by introducing myself. I am an eighteen year old recent high school graduate. I graduated ranked 12th in my class, was a soccer player, cheerleader, had a ton of friends and stayed true to myself throughout high school, which I am happy to say. I had one really good friend throughout high school and a boyfriend, two years older, that I dated as well. My family life was wonderful and all of my relationships were great. I was truly blessed to have everyone in my life supporting me. I have no regrets from high school (other than not attempting to be in the musical, but oh well.) and I had a wonderful time. But just recently has it hit me that I'm never going back, and I realized that I'm okay with that.
I'm ready to start my new life chapter, to take the plunge and to experience different aspects of life. I'm ready for college.
I came up with the idea of writing a "college experience" blog when I realized I had no one to look to in my life to tell me an honest account of what their first year of college or university was like. So I decided to take matters into my own hands, go in blindly and tell you, my readers, whomever you may be, a blatantly honest review of my experiences. From academics, to partying, to keeping or losing relationships, making friends, making money, roommates, time management, everything.
I know it would have been helpful for me at least.
So, as I sit here on this hot day, watching the pontoons, jet skis and fishing boats pass by I begin my adventure. If you care to join me go ahead.
I'm sure it'll be an interesting ride.
