I’m finally settled in at home after leaving campus and my junior year behind.
I’ve been meaning to make a reflection post on the year, but it seems to have slipped away from me… I do want to say a few things, though:
I went into this year with new-found inspiration and and it left me with a solid commitment. Some things that defined the year for me: playing Melchior in Spring Awakening, living in my own apartment with four wonderful friends, voice lessons, my 20 monologue project, Riot Act (a staple), being in two REP shows, and saying goodbye to a big group of graduating friends who I realized I have always inextricably associated with college and now no longer can.
Now I am back in Texas for a month, which may be the last significant amount of time I’m home for a long time (hopefully). Since next summer, well… I’ll have graduated.
Which brings me to this blog. I realized this year that I am not finding as natural to empathize with the high school senior searching for college, probably because I am not about to embark on the next big search in my life, or rather I already have. I will, as promised, continue to blog, but I will begin to focus more, instead of on my early experience, on what is in store for me after graduation, with my experiences at UD in tow.
Stick around for one more year as I finish out this journey. I’ve got plenty to do before this day is done.
