Week one at Georgia Southern University has been conquered, and I am still not sure how I managed to survive! Transferring to another institution, one with a student body ten times the size of my old one, is basically like being plucked from a state of calmness and being hurled into one of complete chaos. While I attend a large institution, both in student body and physical campus size, I am beyond thankful that I am a junior. Seriously. Starting as a formal junior allows me the opportunity to stay planted in my departments' buildings instead of crisscrossing around campus to meet all classes of the core curriculum of any major. In a larger sense, I don't have to scramble to buildings, shuffle through people, or travel far in rainy weather.
Another personal achievement of mine, also worth noting, is the fact that I moved into an apartment! At East Georgia State College, I drove thirty-five minutes to Swainsboro anywhere from four to five days a week for two years! Needless to say, I was excited to be planted in this college town and cut the drive time down to about four minutes! Massive sigh of relief! It has been a strange and exhilarating week, but I have somehow survived it!
