My freshman year is coming to an end., and I’m sitting in my dorm room after a long day of classes writing this post. I seriously don’t even know where to begin. 

When I got my acceptance letter to CU Boulder I didn't realize how much my life would change. I didn’t realize how many amazing people I would meet, how many amazing opportunities I would have, how many stories I would live. 

When I moved into my dorm room I didn’t realize that this little 18 by 18 box could ever feel so homey, I didn’t realize how close I would become with my hall mates, I didn't realize how many memories would be stashed away in my room. 

When I met the girl at a meeting on the first day of school, I didn’t realize she would become my future roommate and one of my best friends. When I was on crutches and met a guy in my dorm also on crutches, I had no idea he would be visiting me this summer. When I met the girl in high school who happened to live in the same dorm as me, I had no idea how close we could ever become. 

When I went to my first class I had no idea how much I would learn, how stressed I could be, and how little I like group projects. I also had no idea how inspiring classes could be. 

I am so lucky to have had the first year college experience that I have had. There have, of course, been some downs, but the good days most definitely outweigh the bad days. I can’t even begin to express all of the moments that I will now treasure as memories. My heart is full of happiness as I look back on the best days of my life so far. Seriously.
