Adjusting to College Life
Wow! The first week of college was a breeze. All my professors seemed so nice. Class never lasted longer than thirty minutes. I did not have to carry any books to class for that whole week. Finding classes was some what tough, even though my classes are around the same area. I did not have any homework to do. I did not see my friends as much but we hung out as much as we could.

Now I will have a roommate to be considerate of. I will decide if I should attend a party or go to a club without someone's approval. I can go to the club with out my mom having the final verdict.

May it be hard for some and easy for others it is up to me to decide how I will adjust to college life; will I go to class; study for my test; waste my money; like my roommate?

Being home sickness has really set in. Also I miss driving my car anywhere I want to go. I miss just sitting on my front porch...
