I am alone and am realizing that this sensation doesn't come around too often anymore. I'll admit that I love the college experience of constantly having friends at your side throughout your days, but being alone for once is nice. Back home, being alone was so necessary - because my days seemed to get out of control for some reason or another, and there was nothing I could do but cool off in my room. Here, though, I have plenty of control over my days, and I really love being able to do so much in the day and come home feeling contented and accomplished. I am so happy - so blessed - for all the friendship, love, and support I've found here. It's easy to get sentimental when I'm alone... oh! but my roommates are back now. So much for solidarity :) until next time!
