Wow, I feel old. It’s so strange not being the newbie or the new memb or the freshie or the lost fish in the sea anymore. (It’s also weird not eating at Parkside all day everyday.) My freshman year was a blur, to say the least, and unfortunately summer was too. But now, I’m a got-my-life-together-but-do-I-really sophomore. Considering sophomore literally means wise fool, I’d say I’m on the right track for that.
I’m having just as much fun screaming my lungs out at the football games, drinking 4 cups of coffee in the morning on *those* mornings, taking pictures of campus at those random sunset/early morning times when the lighting is perfect, crafting from Pinterest to avoid studying, and dancing my heart out the nights after midterms as I did last year. But I also managed to improve my study habits, which I’d say is a major win. (It doesn’t sound like I did, but I swear it’s true.)
So yeah, I’d say this year is going to be a killer one—it already has been! You could say I’m pretty stoked about being on campus again. If you wanted.
And what I’ve learned after a year of being at USC is that everything always works out for the best, as long as you’re giving it your all. My Trojan family (insert cat vomiting meme here from the cheesiness of it all) has got my back, as I’ve learned from experience, and the free food here is UNREAL. Fight on! :)
