First College Sumester

Woo! That first sumester was a roller coster. So much has happened I don't know where to begin. I felt like the sumester went by really fast and really slow at the same time. Well first off I love LCU! Its a perfect fit for me because it is small, homey, Christian, close to home, and so much more. I love being able to make so many friends, so fast, so easily, and see them around campus all the time. I felt like the first sumester of college was so good for me, I learned a lot (not just in the classroom). Now that its over with I can conclude that 90% relationships should not begin the first sumester of college, because everyone learns and changes so much. You meet so many new people, its hard to know who or what kind of person that you would consider dating, at least for me. The funny thing is is that I didn't come to college looking for a girlfriend. I mean I know it was always a possibility or something that could happen but I didn't go into it thinking "I'm going to look around and find me a girlfriend." But you got to watch out or life will sweep you away and before you know it you've made a hasty decision. I know some other Freshman know what I'm talking about. So yes, I made many friends at LCU and now it's hard for me to pick who my close friends are going to be because I know it would be impossible for me to hang out with all of them a lot. I learned that even in college I am super ADD and its really really hard to focus in school haha. I also learned that just because LCU is a Christian college doesn't magically guarantee that my relationship with God will grow stronger. change starts with the heart and I have to intentionally pursue him and not be satisfied at where I am at at the moment. I also learned that I have less idea than I first thought of what I want to do in life. I feel like I need a calling, something I'm passionate about I'm just not sure what that is exactly yet. Once the summer hits I'm going to be doing some heavy thinking about it. I feel like I've grown so much as a person and responibility-wise but I know I'm still far off on who I want to be before I go into the real world haha. Just keep learning and praying. Well that's all I can think of for now but I'll probably add more later when I think of them. Hopefully at least one person will read this and learn something from it (and maybe respond with their 1st sumester experience)
