Ever since move in day here at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, it feels as if a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. In terms of freedom that is. At home, I would always have to worry about what time to be home and make sure my friends could actually take me back home. I was not allowed to drive the car anywhere expect work or school and occasionally I could take it to get some food but rarely. My friends, in my opinion at least, were always annoyed they had to come pick me up or that we had to leave somewhere early because my mother called and suddenly decided I had to be home right then and there. Here, I can basically do what I want, when I want, for however long I please. Plus, most of my friends are only walking distance away, sometimes even a few feet. Do not worry though I have set boundaries for myself. If I actually did what I wanted a hundred percent of the time I would be sleeping, at the beach and/or sleeping at the beach. We live fifteen minutes from the beach, how could I not take advantage of it. Some days, especially on the weekends it feels as if I am on a permanent vacation rather than at university. That is a highly foreign feeling to me. How could university feel like a permanent vacation and school at the same time? I guess I will figure out the answer to that question at some point during the year. Who knows, things might change when midterms roll around, I actually have grades posted in all my classes and I know where I stand.
