Today, I officially checked out of my dorm room. I turned in my key and stored all of my stuff. You could say that my junior year of college is over, but I beg to differ. Although I am leaving Nashville, I have a take-home exam to submit electronically by Wednesday. Therefore, at least until then, I refuse to accept that I am a SENIOR in college. Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday that I was a first-year? Click here to read about the younger me.
I am having a really hard wrapping my head around the fact that most of my undergraduate career is over. Vanderbilt has really become my second home. This morning, as I grabbed a quick breakfast at Commons, I realized that next time I step foot on campus, I can expect to see my little sister around. Now, more than ever, Vanderbilt will really feel like home.
For the third time, (thanks Mom and Dad), I moved myself out completely. Many of my friends’ parents did come, but I spared mine. I am splitting a storage unit with my friends about a mile away from campus. Many of my friends do have cars, so we pack up and head to the unit in shifts. It is convenient and not overly expensive- definitely a cheaper option than shipping everything. I can’t say that I need all of my winter jackets during the hot Miami summer.
The spring semester always seems to fly. I arrived in Nashville right after the Commodores won the Music City Bowl. It was rainy and cold. Now, I leave Nashville with a top-ranked baseball team and warm and sunny weather. I cannot wait to see what the fall has in store for me. I am looking forward to it, even though I am going to be a senior.
