Being at college is like being on a roller coaster. That or a really crappy period. One minute everything is fine and you’re on top of the world, feeling unstoppable. You feel like you could live here the rest of your life being more than content- living the life you dream of. And in another moment? You’re down in the dumps, doubting yourself and your abilities, and wondering if you should have made a different decision.
I’ve felt these two highs and lows so many times today and I can’t even keep track. But at the end of the day with my sore feet and weary body; I have a new outlook on everything that I did yesterday. It’s beautiful because every moment I learn something different, meet someone new, explore the unknown…but it’s all exhausting and trying on my soul. I just need a good night’s rest to clear my head and process everything that happens so quickly.
Enough philosophical musings of Lauren tonight anyway! God looked out for me when picking out a dorm building because literally a step away from my building is a quaint little patch of woods that is so perfect and beautiful. It’s far enough back that I don’t have everyone staring at me, which is something I’m definitely shy about. I’m so used to taking my pictures in the middle of abandoned woods, with no one bothering me…this campus is reaming with thousands of kids, literally everywhere I look. So, finding this little haven was the biggest blessing so far. It lets me to continued to do what I love and start out slow at first before I move onto the more open parts of campus to take pictures. It’ll take some confidence building.
Looking forward to tomorrow, but even more looking forward to a wonderful night’s sleep in my comfy dorm room?
