It's funny, really, how we expect comfort to come so easily from new experiences. We get caught up in our own daydreams, forgetting to face the fact that there is safety in what we do know, and discomfort in what we don't. Assimilating ourselves to new surroundings can be frightening, yet the pay off is one of the greatest. Life is worth living when adventure is a mindset, and each experience is a new one.
My first few days at college have been lovely, and as nerve wracking and bone rattling as this new environment is, I know I will make the most of each experience that's handed to me.
