Since I am going away to college (even though it’s only 20 minutes away from my home town), I figured it would be cool for my family — and me — to have something that captures my College Life. My own writing, my own thoughts and of course my own journey. The ups and the downs, the stress and the fun times will all be captured, and everybody can know what’s going on while I’m in college…just in case I don’t have the time (or I forget) to call or text them to say I’m still alive.
Over spring break I fully committed to Eastern Michigan University for college in the fall of 2016. All I had to do was sign in and activate my account, then sign up for Fast Track Orientation. I chose to go to Fast Track on Saturday, April 9, 2016. Nothing seems real yet, so it really just feels like I’m going for another college tour or something. My plans as of this point are to commute to EMU so I can continue to live at home, and also have a job. I don’t see the point of living on campus if it’s only 20 minutes away because the cost of housing isn’t cheap. Although I think it would be fun to live on campus, I can’t justify spending the money to live 20 minutes away from my house.
