On Wednesday, my second year of college was officially over! (Almost–I still had to turn in a paper for my Peer Tutoring course, but I did that on Friday.) This semester was intense; I took five classes and an independent study for a total of 20 credits, which made for a busy finals week–I had to complete three final exams and three final papers.
On Thursday, I moved out of my beloved suite 203. It was surreal and bittersweet. My room was reduced to boxes and bags and my walls were bare for the first time since August. 203 and the people I lived with became an amazing home and family for me over the course of two semesters, so leaving it was difficult, even though I was excited to return home to see my biological family. It didn’t even hit me that I wouldn’t be going back until I had almost moved out. However, I said my goodbyes (a lot of them) and left for the summer.
Things have been pretty low key since returning home. On Friday, I spent a lot of time unpacking, but I was able to squeeze in some fun too. I went with my mom and my sister to see Legally Blonde: The Musical at the New Candlelight Dinner Theater in Wilmington, Delaware. The show was energetic, funny, and a great time! And tonight, I went to the high school graduation party of one of my friends. This has all made for a fun weekend!
It’s amazing to believe that I’m now halfway through college. It’s kind of scary, but I keep reminding myself that I have a wonderful summer now and two more years of school to look forward to. Though there’s a lot of uncertainty when it comes to what I’ll be doing over the next few years, I have a great life and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
