When I moved in on campus I was excited and the whole “Being on your own” didn’t hit me till that night. I actually live close to campus, about a 10 to 15 minute drive, but I was kept close to home with parents who wanted the best for me so they had strict rules. I thank them for that it has just been a lot of adjusting to something so different where I don’t get to see them whenever I want. Ohio State was a little overwhelming but I worked hard to get there and there was no way I was backing out when I was so close. If I had to re-do my college selection over I wouldn’t have changed a thing. It is really different from how things are at my house but with each day I talk to a new person or I get homework done early instead of last minute. I expected my first week at college to be a mess with me getting lost, or not understanding what’s going on, or a huge work load being assigned. I only got lost a couple of times but that’s why I left my dorm early so I had time to get lost. The assignments I have received I’ve learned to ask for help ahead of time and to get it done early so there is no stressing over it. Ohio State always has something going on on campus and that’s the fun about it, they’re always trying to make you comfortable and help you make new friends.
