Moving out of college for some is a very sad time. They make friends in their first year that they can’t imagine living without and having to be apart from for 3 months of summer break. I have an experience like that right now.
Moving Out – Thoughts On My First Year At College
I have closed my notebooks and texts books, clipped my flashcards back together and put them in my backpack. My finals are done and now it is time for me to pack my stuff up. I have taken all the sheets off my bed and all the posters off my walls. My clothes are folded neatly in my drawers for once so that they easily will be transferred into my duffle bag tomorrow when I give back my key to my room and head home for the summer.
Its bittersweet for me. I had a tough year, emotionally mainly. Academically, I did pretty good I thought. I ended first semester with a 3.27 GPA and i’m hoping it will go up this semester to make it over a 3.30.
Emotionally I had a bit of a tough time finding a group of people to fit in with. I knew at the beginning of the year that the people I was hanging around with probably wouldn’t be my best friends, but I knew that they would be friends. I would be able to talk to them and have them be there for me, at the time. Then the group divided in half and I was caught in the middle, with no one to actually turn to and I became depressed.
This past month and half I have improved immensely. I am finally happy with my life and friends. I have a leadership role in a club and I love attending our weekly meetings (its a Nerd Empire Club). Next year I am going to have two new roommates who are my best friends currently and my relationship with my boyfriend is absolutely perfect. We understand each other and help each other improve and be better.
It took me almost the whole school year, but I know now that I am finally in a place where I am happy. And that is what my final thoughts are. It was a tough year for me emotionally. But now i’m happy with how it all turned out and I know what I need to do next year to have an even better year.
