5 things I love about college

Posted on

1. Remember those piano lessons I’ve always wanted since I was five years old, mom?

I’m only a decade or so late, but now have friends in college teach me how to play! I try and practice every day.. and sometimes even multiple times a day.. And you know you have some sort of OCD when you start moving your fingers to imaginary keys randomly throughout the day. Is there a name for this compulsion??piano

2. I never have to do anything alone.

Whether I want to eat food or go work out or just sit and talk, I always have someone there with me. My roommates like to take showers around the same time as me so we don’t have to be alone in the showers in case a fire alarm rings and we have to run out. So, there is always someone there that enjoys the same things as you do, and will gladly join you in any/all the activities. It’s great to have someone there by your side. I never ever feel lonely!

3. I have time to get to know people on a deeper level.

There are just so many people to meet and get to know! It’s like a never-ending mission, but oh, it’s just a wonderful feeling to connect with someone and have someone who understands you, your values and philosophy, your problems, and your feelings. It not only helps you find peace and happiness, but it nurtures you to a better understanding of yourself and your environment. Sometimes it takes time to see the incredible person and to peel the layers off a person and find a way to their heart and spread your love to them, so here’s your chance!story

4. People come knocking on my door looking for me.

I feel so loved. They can confide in me and would do anything for me as I would for them. This can only happen in college.

5. College dorms start to resemble a kind of home.

This came a few weeks into first quarter, but towards the end of the move-in process, I took a step back and realized my new, previously empty dorm room is starting to resemble the makings of a home, and I love it. The entire college dorming experience is like creating a new family. There are fights and gossips/rumours, there are drama-filled episodes, but everyone is family, and we all love each other.house

    It’s wonderful to hear that you’re having such a great time in college. Reading this really takes me back to my own days in college…..a long, long time ago!

      Thank you! Yeah, the main reason I started blogging was to keep all these moments written so that however many years later, the feeling at this moment stays fresh and I can easily recall what happened!
