Changing campuses really changed the whole game for me. I came into this semester with many expectations. I expected to remain single this semester. I expected to be done with social clubs and greek life. I expected living with my roommates was gonna suck because we would start to hate each other.
Not a single one of these expectations came to pass.
mfw this semester.
I found myself spending time rediscovering old friendships as well creating new ones. I also started seeing the world in a different light rather than the one I have been stubbornly used to seeing it.
I don’t know where I got the idea that my rooming situation would suck because my two roommates this year are probably some of the best people I could ever hope to meet. The amount of swag generated in our apartment is SICK. No…seriously, it’s disgusting.
As for the relationship, all I can say is “whoa”.
Finally, I met a girl that gave me hope for the world. She has a gentleness that you don’t find with just anyone. What’s really surprising is the fact that there were MANY reasons we should have never been together. Such as the fact that she was a foreign exchange student. That meant the whole thing would end. When it did end, it was painful
…and man was it was painful.
But that relationship really helped me to see things differently, in more ways than I care to explain right now. Just know that I don’t wanna be the guy who always talks big. I want to prove it. Even when I start to feel like the world is out to get me, I can get past that paralyzing fear that’s always held me down and keep moving forward. Because I have family and friends all over the world that I don’t want to disappoint.
After all that happened this year I’ve decided that I really want to be an adult when I grow up. Funny to say when I’m 21, but I still feel like I”m not quite there yet.
