In the fall of 2009 I'll be attending the University of California, Berkeley. I can't even begin to describe how absolutely thrilled I am to have this opportunity, and I can't wait to move up there and start afresh. I've worked extremely hard to get to this point, and although it wasn't an easy decision, it was the best one I could make.
These last few weeks have been tumultuous, to say the least, but I only have a week of class and finals left so there's no point in worrying about people and things that I can't change. It's been an interesting two years, to say the least, and even though I'm not leaving community college with many friends (most lost due to politics, sadly), at least I'll have the memories. I've learned more about myself than I ever could have imagined--cliché, I'm sure, but true. It's been a tough road, but it's nowhere near over--I'm just starting on a new path now. Hopefully, everything I've learned the past two years will be put to good use in the coming years.
Anyways. This blog will serve to show my adventures in transferring to anyone who's interested--from moving to roommates to the cold (after living in LA my entire life, the constant bay breeze will be an interesting experience) to new classes--this'll document it all. Due to the economy and the rising cost of higher education, I feel as though many more kids are going to have to go the route I did, and go to community college first and then transferring, and maybe this'll help answer any questions they might have. This blog is for my friends, my family, and anyone else who cares: read my adventures, learn from my mistakes, and enjoy the ride.
I just bought my plane tickets for move-in day...I'm so nervous! But more than anything, I'm excited...bring it on!
