Even though I know it’s better to keep expectations low, I can’t help but to anticipate good things for this quarter. I am excited for my classes, awaiting adventures with friends, and embracing change. I feel torn about my emotions regarding returning to school: so much of me wants to be home, but I also find myself longing to go back, to take on the challenge that awaits me. Last quarter, I felt like I was treading water. It took everything to keep me head above the rough waves of life that were otherwise overwhelming. I had forgotten about how much I loved to swim. This quarter, I’m planning on rekindling that love.
