I was taking a break from reading The Poisonwood Bible and logged onto FB. Lo and behold, I see freshmen talking about which guys they thought were cute at orientation today. You have no idea how cute this is. I’m not gonna lie. I was guilty of this at my own orientation ROFL. “Oh, hey that Link Leader is hawt.” “I hope I see him around school!”
I think what really got me is how innocent these conversations are. I can imagine them frantically typing their responses, happy that their friends noticed which guys stood out to them. “Did you see that guy?!” “No, not him, the other one.” “OMG. Yes, I did :D”
Let’s be honest: being a freshman girl rocks. You have guys from four different grades to
stalk admire from afar. [This is why I’m excited for college. JK JK. Ok, well, maybe a little :P]
The more I’m envious of freshmen for having four years where they can make awesome memories at LC, the more I’m deteremined to make my senior year special. I’m not talking anything on a major scale. Little things like carrying my camera everywhere (which I do 95% of the time already), getting work done to make more time for friends, etc. This year, everything I do will mean so much more than it used to. This is the year of “lasts.” The last time I help with the homecoming float. The last homecoming game. The last Creek Rock (although I feel like I’ll prolly attend the one in 2011). But it’s also a year with some “firsts.” My first legit school dance. The first time I’m honestly happy about my academic career. My much anticipated first time at DCON.
No matter what happens senior year, no matter how many challenges I encounter, it will be a year to remember.
