COLLEGE IS AWESOME! It’s so much hard work, but you get to do it on your own time and in your own ways. I love the freedom so much. I’ve already made some of the best friends that a girl could ask for. (Yes, this is a shoutout to Elizabeth/Liz/Ellie/Lizzy/Beth/Can’t decide what to call her and Nisha. I love you guys already!)
I’m busy all the time which is a relief. No longer do I have idle time where I get bored, distracted, or tired. ALL my time needs to be used in some constructive or fun way.
I’m so excited for the prospect of more at UVA and I can’t wait for this year to really get kicked off after our first football game. Hoo’s ready to kick W&M’s ASS!?!?!

This is my new inspiration!
So I’m beginning to officially regret taking a morning class that meets everyday at 9. It doesn’t sound that early, but when you NEVER get to sleep in anymore…….. it feels earlier than it is. Other than that my life sails onward. I have no idea when this year will bring except change. Already I can tell that my newfound freedom is a test to see if I can manage my own time, money, expenses, and most of all my emotions. I am not homesick by the definition of missing home because Charlottesville IS my new home (I’ve come to terms with that because I know that I’ll be spending at least my next 4 years here.) But I miss waking up and having my fluffy cat Chuck follow me around. I miss have the ability to drive myself to movies, the mall, or my friends’ houses. I miss having discussions with my parents over dinner while we watch television. I’m going to miss watching Sunday night football with my mom. I miss hugging my boyfriend and knowing that he’s only 20 minutes away. I miss the security of my old life because now I have no idea what’s going to happen. What will my major be? Which fellowship will I join? Of all these people that I’ve met, how many of them will be actually true friends? Although this new adventure is terrifying, I know that I am excited to see what life has in store for me. So bring it on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go HOOS.
I’m currently leaning against a tree on the Lawn like a pro. I just finished my first Italian class which was totally overwhelming!! We just went over some basics, but the professor spoke solely in Italian. WOO! Maybe I’ll actually learn to SPEAK a language which didn’t really happen in high school…
I can’t believe I’m a college student; it still feels so unreal!! At the same time, I am definitely pumped for these next 4 amazing years. Ask anyone and you’ll know that I had MAJOR doubts about UVA, but now I feel almost completely at ease. It’s going to be challenging, it’s going to be intense, but it’s going to be an adventure. I’m ready to take it on and carry my ring to Mordor!
NERDY LOTR REFERENCE!! <3
Just officially moved into UVA! This has been one of the best experiences of my life. I’ve met so many amazing people in a very short amount of time. Obviously it’s a bit overwhelming, but I think I’m ready to tackle this stage in my life. My room is AWESOME. My roommate is GREAT. My hallmates are FUN! And so far I haven’t gotten lost so that’s a win! Charlottesville is great. I even went to my first party! It was a Something-In-A-Mug Christian DRY party, but still. LOVING COLLEGE <3
