Last First: Summer Wind Reflects
Today marks my last first day of undergraduate classes ever. It is definitely bittersweet, as I'm sure many of you can relate. On one hand I am so proud of everything I have accomplished in the past 3 and a half years and on the other, I am not ready for it to end. I'm not ready to leave my friends, my beautiful campus, bEw, nice and sunny Virginia, and basically my newest place that I call home. It is also scary to think that come May I could end up anywhere in this entire world. I have so many questions like will I move back home to Pittsburgh where all my family is? Will I move to D.C.? New York? Will I stay in touch with all of my friends? Will I graduate with a job in place? Who will I live with? These questions are all clouding my mind on this day and probably until May 5, 2012.
The feeling reminds me of when I was applying to colleges and I had no idea what the next couple of months of my life would bring. I remember thinking how scary it was not knowing what state I was going to end up in and all that picking a college would bring. Thankfully everything fell into place and I don't regret a single thing. Here's to hoping that my "big girl" life will go off without a hitch just like my "college life" did! To all those starting there last first day today, I wish you the best of luck and happiness in these last months of an unforgettable experience. Have a fabulous day!
