Back on Campus

Back on Campus

This past Thursday I finally moved back!  To say I'm excited is seriously an understatement.  Be warned this is a sappy post. 

The first week of my freshman year I may have been the only one who was not homesick; and I didn't feel homesick until our laundry room in the basement flooded (for the first time).  But this year is different.  When I was at home I actually made attempts to spend time with my parents - because I actually wanted to. Weird, I know.  My relationship with all of my parents (child of divorce) strengthened this past summer, and it was a lot tougher to leave. 

It also didn't help that my mom just had a baby six months ago, and step mom had a baby a little over a year and a half ago, and I wanted to spend time with. {Granted minimal time because I'm not good with babies, but you get the point}. 

But as different as leaving this year was, I am also a thousand times more excited than I was last year.  The friends I made here at UMass last year are like family to me now, and five months is a long time to go without seeing people that you're used to seeing all day everyday.  

I'm stepping out of my comfort zone this semester: I will be going through Sorority Recruitment in a little less than a month, I'm about to begin my first semester on the Executive board of the Women in Business Society on campus, and in only one week I will be fulfilling a life long dream of mine.

And you know something surprising?  I am so excited for class!! I'm probably more excited for actual school more than anything (*cough* Geek *cough*).  The classes I'm taking this semester are things I'm interested in, or challenge me and make me think. 

It's an amazing feeling to move back onto campus knowing I have an amazing family supporting me at home, a wonderful relationship (happy almost two years :)), and just the most incredible group of friends.  I couldn't be more thankful to all of those people and to all of my readers going into this year. 

Thank you again!
