Even as a Senior in college the first day of class still feels like the first day of school in elementary school. You get nervous to meet your teachers and you don't know what to expect for the coming semester. As I prepare myself to start one of my final semesters of college I feel like the 1st grader again getting ready for Mrs. Burchfield's class and having no idea what to expect.
That's part of growing up that they don't tell you about, it gets easier but some of it will always be the same. The nervousness you get sitting down in a classroom for the first time hoping you got a good seat and your professor isn't a total flop. As I start classes this week I have all new binders and notebooks, that I specially selected for this semester. That's one part of being a kid that you never grow out of, getting cool school supplies is always fun, the bad part is as a college kid you buy them yourself.
I'm taking 15 hours this semester as well as working full time still, just like all the other semesters I've had in college, but this one is extra special because at the end of it I will have 7 hours left in my college career. I will be part time next semester and graduating in December. The real world just keeps getting closer and closer to being here.
My motto for this semester is to Pray More and Worry Less.
On my first day of school it will be a little different then every other day, it's a new beginning of sorts. New classes, teachers, and faces. Lots of new things to learn and new people to meet.
What do you do on your first day of school that's special?
