I have a feeling I’m going to be “that” girl.
The one that goes home all the time to see her family.
And strangely, I’m okay with that.
After being on campus for two weeks, I have definitely found that there are worse things to be.
I remember the days of being so mad when I got privileges taken away, because that meant I had to stay home. I used to describe myself as outgoing, never wanting to stay home, and social.
Now, I have come to terms with my hermithood. (Pardon my invented word.)
I have found that I abhor change, and that if I could be anywhere in the world, it would be wherever my family was.
Don’t get me wrong, this campus is beautiful and has already shaped me more than I could have ever foreseen.
But sometimes, you need a little chill.
I have craved quiet this week.
I went to the library, a nice escape from the constant screaming and giggling of my current hall, but I don’t think Libris is up to sharing his home with a human.
The quiet I’m craving, however, has nothing to do with silence.
It has everything to do with being able to let my guard down, not focus on the ten thousand voices it seems are surrounding me 24/7. I just want the voices of those I have known forever.
That is what I’m looking forward to this weekend, even though my excessive nerdiness will compel me to work ahead on studies.
But hey, I’ll be studying in the company of a new Darth Vader voice-changing helmet, Lalaloopsy-Playmobil crossover soap operas, and Mama working to get things done.
What are you looking forward to this weekend?
