But But But I’m Not Ready To Go Home

There is less than one month left in my freshman year at Vanderbilt.

WAIT, WHAT?! I jusssst got here. I remember my first day on campus in extreme detail. I remember getting lost on my way to Rand. I remember my first class on the first day of class. All of this feels like yesterday, not nearly 8 months ago. Time has flown by, and, not to sound hyperbolic, but my life has changed. I have formed entirely new friendships, and I have gotten the hang of classes. I am finally getting comfortable, right as my first year is coming to a close.

And frankly, I’m not ready to go home. Time keeps flying. While I am excited to see my family and my dog and my friends, I will miss my new friends, my radio show, Alice who makes a fantastic sandwich at Rand, and my long, yet beautiful, walk from Commons to Main Campus.

Before I dive too deep into preemptive nostalgia, I must face the future doom that is finals. These last few weeks will allot little time for me to mope about leaving Vandy and a lot of time for me to complain about all the work I have to do. However, this is the case with college and finals week. It’s no walk in the park (note the irony here because Vandy is basically a park).

As I buckle down to study for my econ final (taught by a certain Professor Buckles! HA!), lock down on my ethics term paper (taught by a certain Professor Lachs! HAHA!), and prepare for my French final (no joke this time), I will be reflecting on how amazing these past two semesters have been in order for me to keep smiling through finals week.

Also, there will be a puppy day on campus soon, so that will also help.

Essentially, what we’re looking at for the next few weeks is great weather, positive outlooks, and puppies. I think I can handle that.

My very serious "To Do" list for the coming weeks-Note my priorities
