It is so weird to think that in a short 8 months, I will be surrounded by thousands of people that have no idea who I am. College is quite intimidating when you think about it that way. Granted, there may be some people from your high school that choose the same college as you, but basically you are starting all over. You are going to a new town or maybe even a new state and it is up to you to make new friends. For me, I know that change is difficult. I like my routine, I like knowing what is going to happen, and I like being in control, but I know that change is good. Change allows for new people to enter your life. Change allows for a new passion to be discovered. Change allows for people to step outside their comfort zone. College will be an opportunity to challenge myself to accept such change. I know that as soon as I step foot on that campus on June 25th that my entire life will change. Not only will I be surrounded by new people, but I will be out of control. There will be people telling me what I can and cannot do and there will be rules that I must follow. Despite all of this, there is the reward that comes with change. So, looking forward, I know that change will be hard, but it is something that is necessary to life. It will teach me life lessons. It will push me to try new things. Most importantly, it will allow for new opportunities that otherwise would be missed.
