Today is (hopefully) the last first day of class for my undergrad program, which subsequently means I am a SENIOR in college! I am so glad to have the opportunity to be living back on campus and attending classes in person for the first time in over a year; sometimes you truly do not appreciate the little things or recognize your privilege until it is taken away. Over the last 18 months I spent a lot of time working on myself and, though I am nervous, feel prepared to try my best academically, socially, and mentally for my last year! Some highlights from my first day as a senior at UMW:
- Eagle Gathering
- Talking to at least 1 new person in all my Monday classes
- Getting coffee with my sister (who is a freshman on campus this year! I am so old!)
- Forced myself to NOT take a nap!!
- Got lunch with my housemate
Coming down Campus Walk after my 10am in Combs I got to pass the Bell Tower and take in the beauty of a once again bustling campus. The sun was shining, music was playing from Ball Circle, and it really was a Great Day To Be An Eagle.
