In just a few days, I start my first semester as a grad student at Rowan University. Just the anticipation made me think about how different I am now, then when I started college back in 2005.
I graduated high school in 2005 and went straight into college. No breaks. Not even one semester because I knew — I just knew — that if I didn’t do it then, I wouldn’t do it at all. But this post isn’t all about how I sat in classrooms wondering how anybody understood a single thing on the page.
