Four years later

It’s kind of hard to believe that come this fall, I will have graduated college four years ago. Part of me feels like it only just happened yesterday: I was spending my morning in class, and my afternoons and weekends walking dogs.

Last week I read this article in The New York Times that highlighted college kids during their first week in school, and then followed up with them two semesters later.

It’s cheesy to say of course, but college can be such a transformative time in your life. You’re learning how to be on your own and you’re making your own decisions for the first time. It was fun reading that others feel the same way.
