So, I've been in Eugene since Monday, and I really haven't seen much off of campus. But, I'm starting to be able to find my way around within the university. Walking around today I knew I had Freshman eyes, as big as saucers, but I was learning, and that's got to happen for a while until I udnerstand what I'm doing.
Life is awkward. Everything is new, and confusing, and there is so much information at once. After hearing the girls on my floor talk, I feel like a square because I don't drink or smoke or really party and I'm into God. This is the time where I stop and remind myself that it pays off in the long run to be who I am. That everyone is knew and I do get respected, even if people don't think I'm cool. I'll make and find friends. They won't all believe the same things I will, but we can still be friends, and I'll make friends I can share my thoughts and beliefs with, and learn and appreciate theirs.
In the meantime, I'm not going to fret. I'm going to be chill, pray and keep moving forward one day at a time. I'll focus on losing the Freshman eye look, with saucers in the place of optical lenses on my face. Life is good, and it will all work out.
