It’s finally happening! I’ve been level-headed all summer after receiving my acceptance letter. Didn’t skip a beat when I saw how much financial aid I’m getting–full ride. I stayed focused on my present moment and kept riding bikes and listening to poetry and getting pissed or sad about horrible things happening in Mexico. Today I am a whirlwind of excitement! I’m rubbing my eyes…is this true? Is it already starting? I pick up my ID, order my books, and meet lots of people in my department tomorrow. My major is Development Sociology in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. I am ready for this!
