Time now for the first real post on this site. This is a little bit more of a journal entry style post, but right after this I will be posting one of the pieces that I wrote a little earlier this year, as a starter piece, talking about why I got rid of Facebook for good! I hope you enjoy it, and this!
Let me talk for a minute about the feeling of that first day of university. Let me talk for a minute about that feeling of going somewhere that you know is about to become a huge part of your life over the next however long, but this place has just gone from being a point on a map somewhere to part of your identity.
The towering buildings on the campus, the sea of people, the train that drops you off at the station, the river running along side the campus, the mess of greenery all placed in the right spots to liven the place up. This is huge, not just because this is an amazing first step that you are undertaking, but, call it “prestalgia” because you know one day you will look back really fondly on your time here, all of the friends you are going to make, club experiences, classes, professors and staff you meet and you are going to have a wealth of stories to tell.
It all starts with Day 1, and that day for me, was today.
