“Every journey begins with a single step” -Confucius
So I have moved in and been here for about a week, but it seems like I have been here for forever. The week had its highs and its lows, but to be honest though mostly lows. I feel like I am on a roller coaster most days. Up and down, upside-down and right-side-up. The biggest issue is, I choose not to participate in the college party scene at my school. While most freshman in the first week were going out every night, I was way more content with staying in my room watching Netflix with a friend. The only issue with that is I have yet to find a friend to do this with. So instead of finding someone to hang with in my room I went out the first week a few times, and none of them ended well. This isn’t to say it won’t go well for some people, I just know for me it didn’t. As and introverted individual, this has been my biggest struggle so far in college. A little background so you can understand where I am coming from…..
When I was in high school I participated in the party scene quite often my freshman, sophomore, and some of my junior year. Hooking up and staying out getting drunk with my friends was what most weekends consisted of. Yet during my junior year I started dating my boyfriend (still dating in college) and I started to mature away from the random drunken hooking up. I started to find that the party scene just didn’t satisfy me socially anymore. As I matured though, my friends didn’t. I still hung out with them and went to parties, I just didn’t drink or smoke anymore. Then college came around….The first night I went out really reminded me of why I didn’t like to party anymore. The bar was crowded with drunk kids dancing and hooking up. For those of you who aren’t interested in getting drunk and hooking up. The start of college is really tough, and honestly it has been for me. I am starting this blog to ask people to share their experiences to bring awareness to the fact that people aren’t as happy as they may appear on Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. I am here to help girls come together and realize, that’s ok! So I will be documenting my days, and hoping that you guys will too. Please post anonymously, so you can share your true feelings and experiences without fear of judgement.
