So the first few days of college were rough and lonely but now that it’s going, I love it. I am in love with college guyz.
The classes are hard but fantastic, they’re small, usually less than 20 kids, they’re interactive and fun and the teacher really cares about your education. My art history class doesn’t even have tests because she just wants us to learn so that we can learn AND I LOVE THAT.
The best part of Colby has got to be the people though. I was a little worried at first because I could only ever get small talk, but now I’ve met so many fantastic people. I’ve gone to a lot of real college parties which is different but SO MUCH FUN. I joined the crew team and the club expo is on Wednesday so I’m going to join a couple other things as well to meet even more people.
I made friends with a few great people in particular so far though, the first is named Becca, she plays field hockey and is a bit shy but super sweet. Then I made friends with this guy named Jimmy who’s very nerdy and goofy but really fun and he likes to go star gazing, so a few people and I have done that a few times since getting to campus. And lastly, I’ve made pretty good friends with this guy named Nick, (I think he’s going to end up being my closest friend at Colby) who I met while at the art museum open house and he bakes and knits sweaters for his bike (which is the coolest thing ever) and last night we just laid next to each other in the grass by the pond on campus and talked for hours until we got too chilly.
I haven’t been home since before one in the morning a single night since I’ve gotten on campus and no one ever asks me where I’ve been or when to be home, and that’s fantastic.
I love it here, I love the people and the classes and the freedom. dude. college. yes.
You cut up a thing that’s alive and beautiful to find out how it’s alive and why it’s beautiful, and before you know it, it’s neither of those things, and you’re standing there with blood on your face and tears in your sight and only the terrible ache of guilt to show for it.
I just completed my final cx debate round… It’s odd knowing that this part of my life that I’ve worked towards through out all of high school has come to a close.
