That’s how much longer I left as a freshman in college: one month. It’s weird to think about but I am mostly happy. Happy because I can get the heck out of here! Okay that’s a bit harsh but yes, I am very excited for what next year has to offer. This year wasn’t all bad though. In fact there were a lot of good moments. I wouldn’t take this year back, not at all. I don’t care if it was a good one or bad one. I believe that everything happens for a reason and if you don’t like an experience, the best you can do is grow from it. So that’s exactly what I plan on doing.
There are some things I will miss though…
The dining hall. After touring the different schools, I have come to the realization that my school has an awesome dining hall. They have a lot of different options, healthy and not so healthy. Plus they really try to focus on local ingredients. I will miss my daily giant salads…
The rec center. I’m sure that other rec centers are nice too but I have gotten so comfortable at my school’s. I know where all the machines are and when it’s busy and when it’s empty. (Hint: It’s empty from 6-9am.)
The location. I love that I can go to San Francisco for the day or to Napa or to the bay. There are so many different options. Plus I love driving down the street and seeing some cows chilling on the hillside. Or a rooster in the Walgreens parking lot. And there are a ton of awesome races.
Triathlon Club. I loved this club. I loved the people, the coach, everything. Plus it gave me an excuse to do another race 😉
The friends I have made. I’ll be the first to admit that I haven’t made very many friends. Some have come and gone and some have stayed. I will miss the ones who have stayed for sure.
And on that note…
What lessons have you learned this past year?
