I am an English major and a communication minor. I will be graduating on December 17, 2011. College has been a time of learning and discovery for me, and a time where I had to figure out where I am going with my life. Going to college is a strange experience. You’re an adult yet still reliant on your parents. You have freedom and autonomy at college along with the responsibility of a single adult, yet every holiday you must go back home and are suddenly under your parent’s roof again and following their rules. It is a time where you learn how to be an adult yet still have some comfort of relying on mom and dad.
I am now almost to the point where I launch out on my own, and as I prepare for the next part of my journey into adulthood I decided to share some of my experiences in the hopes that it could be beneficial to others. I will probably also post in the future about my time outside of college and what the next step is, but at first I would rather focus on my college experience. I hope that anyone who stumbles upon this blog can leave gaining some helpful knowledge or insight into their own college career.
