I have officially been in school for 2 weeks now and I can honestly say that the feeling of "college" did not hit me until tonight. Tonight I went to 2 different activities, BCM which is Baptist Collegiate Ministries and it was AWESOME! They had a "home-cooked" meal which was pleasant change from the routine meals at the Dining Hall. After dinner, we all played games and got to talk and get to know each other. We then sat down for a 10 minute devotional followed by some awesome praise and worship songs. Unfortunately, I had to leave about 15 minutes early to make it to my next activity of the night on time. The Rotunda is the schools newspaper which is also affiliated with The Rotunda Show which is a live film show on campus and a Radio Show also conducted by students at Longwood. At first, I was kind of skeptic about going because I was never involved with the newspaper at my high school or never did anything film related. To my surprise, the meeting was amazing; nothing like what I expected! They were extremely nice and understood that I wanted to get involved but not on a high level just yet. Luckily, I was able to snag a low key story that's more of an interview type story...I get to interview the new staff members of The Rotunda! Its not much but everyone has to start somewhere.... right? :)
So as of right now, I love college. I miss my family, my friends, and my boyfriend, yes, but this life of being on my own and doing my own thing, responsibly at that, is just what I imagined it would be. Now I truly understand the meaning of making good friendships with the right people....I've made awesome friends here who are all involved in different clubs and organizations on campus and I've only benefited from it.
Life is awesome. College is awesome. My friends are awesome. My boyfriend is awesome. MY GOD IS AWESOME.
